On another note, we got our insurance explanation of benefits for my surgery today. Wow! My insurance company got off cheap! The bill... $38,644.56. Provider Write-off...$29,666.59. Insurance paid... $7,776.71. My portion? $1,198.26. That's amazing. I bet they won't give "me" a write-off of nearly 80%. That would mean I'd pay less than $250. Seems only fair, right? LOL! (Just kidding - but I can dream, eh?) As if that would happen. I can afford to make $50 per month payments so it'll take me a while to get that taken care of. But, that's OK. It will be all worth it.
I've been working on the centerpieces for the shower. They're not complete and I have a couple of other things to do, but here are the beginnings of them.
The basket on the left (with "It's a Girl" tag) will have floral foam in the bottom, with a shred cover over it. The items in the 2nd picture are going to be on floral picks and arranged in the basket, along with baby toiletry items. The basket on the right (with the baby) is going to be transformed into what "hopefully" will look like a bathtub. I have some more work to do for it, for sure.
Then, I also have a big "stork" that will be attached to a pink blanket full of diapers and made to look like it's delivering a pink bundle of joy.
That's the plan, anyway!
More work on them will go on this weekend.
