Month: October 2003


I got another bill from the local hospital. This one was for Zometa. I’ve had eight treatments so far. I was under the impression that my insurance covered it all, because I hadn’t received a bill for any portion of it. Each infusion is a little under $1,600.00 here. Thank goodness I have insurance, even if it doesn’t cover everything 100%.

Thanks everyone!

  • I meant to mention that Dan B. called a few days ago after I expressed (again) my transplant fears. Thanks Dan!
  • Thanks for dropping me a line, Kim!
  • Gia, thanks for always checking up on me, and for burning the candle.
  • Thanks to my family for helping me out when I need it. (And even when I don’t!)

Card on the way

Rich Butts is in Boston B&W Hospital, after having suffered some problems (not directly related to his allo transplant). I’ve sent a card, and many of the MM list folks have done the same. If you’d like to send a card, you can search the ACOR MM list archives (you must be registered to do this). I won’t post it here in a public place.
