Pretty soon we received a couple more bills that were a lot bigger than what we had anticipated. So we made a payment on the smallest one but decided to make a phone call before making any kind of payment on the bigger one. We just weren't sure what we were being billed for, and we wanted to make sure we weren't being double charged for any of the labs we had already paid for. The larger of the two bills was a little over $4,500.
I called the patient account services to ask them for specifics on our bills. After being connected with an operator he pulled up our account and told me what our total balance was. It was $1,550. I was really confused and thought at first that he had the wrong account open because of the bill we had just received. Not to mention the one right before that for $1,000. He told me that a few days after the larger bill was sent out our insurance covered another $900, but it didn't show on the statement. And the hospital also discounted another $2,000, bringing our new balance to $1,550. When I asked him what this amount was for he told me it was for the surgery and everything included that day. I couldn't believe what I was hearing - I was in total shock! After I got off the phone I called Tyson and let him know the news. We were both really excited to be saving more money.

On Saturday morning, Tyson and I went with Tyson's dad to pick up another toy. A friend of mine and her mom wanted to get rid of their treadmill, so they offered it to us for $100. We couldn't resist that price! We went over to their house, hauled it out to Tyson's truck, and took it home. We're so excited to have a treadmill! And it's in great shape. I can't wait to get going on that thing. I guess you could say we had a pretty successful weekend!

After Ikea we stopped over to 90th South for a little Tai Pan action. Tyson and I have been trying to find lamps for our room. Although we weren't successful in this area, we were able to find a new lamp for our living room. And it looks really good!
After dinner we needed dessert. Of course. So we decided to locate the nearest Dairy Queen and go for a cherry-dipped cone. Delicious! I recall mentioning these yummy treats in a past post. We just love them! They're so good! And we all love them so it works out great.
Even though we were only there for two days, we still had a great time in Utah. On the way home we were able to stop in at Uncle Bob and Aunt Penney's for a visit. It was nice to see them.
I love my family, and I'm so glad we're able to spend time together like we do!

As far as celebrating, we'll be spending our evening with a workout at the Apple, then watching one of our favorite shows, "The Biggest Loser." Perfect! As long as I get to spend this day with him I don't care what we do. :)
