One Expensive Hotel Stay
You're due to go home tomorrow, but we're in a bit of a conundrum. Now your mother is sick too and while I'm finally getting better, I still have the sniffles. The upper respiratory infection took a lot out of both of us, but I can only imagine the impact it would have on you. You only recently came off of oxygen. The solution? We can just keep you in the NICU for a few days longer until one of us is better. The problem with that solution? It would cost $2000 a day. When I first heard that number, it didn't shock me very much. $2000 a day is a drop in the bucket when compared to all the money we've spent so far to bring you into the world.
