We got a hospital bill today from when Tim was hospitalized in Erie for two days after his stroke. $36,000. For two days.
PS: All those tests? Billed separately. $36,000 is for the hospital stay alone.
Tim went up to talk to 'Carrot Top', the fellow we've contracted to do our basement for the new house. Saturday, we are all meeting up on site. Carrot Top will direct the excavation. Once the excavator has the directions, he'll start work. Once the excavating is done, the basement will be poured. The new build is getting under way. It's always a bit of a shock. The house build has always seemed so far into the future. Some day has become next week.
They still haven't found the suspect in the murder case. The news says that he has several active warrants on him for some pretty violent crimes, including child endangerment. The woman he is said to have killed has three children with him. How scary it would be to try to make sure those grieving children are protected. His address was also a shock. He lives not far from our friends Levi and Mattie.
