Holy Smokes! There's incentive to recover properly so you don't have to go in for any kind of re-do for having over-done it.

A perk of having a job. Teaching allows me to have quite a bit of time to enjoy the outdoors/running/etc.. granted it would be nice to have even more at times, but time to rest/recover is also necessary. Along with state pension, so that I can retire early, the great health insurance is definitely a great perk considering I went to the Doc/PT/and some chiro visits this year. 100$ deductiblea and that's it. I would be in debt up to my ass without health insurance. One of the fine lines that comes along with having fun, there is also a fine line of compromise. The work/play issue. Although teaching is probably the best setup for an ultrarunner.

rattle that tip jar.
hope the healing is going well. Great report from Moab.

I think you got a relatively good deal. That is almost exactly the same amount i had to pay a toyota dealer to put a used engine in my wife's sequioa. I would much rather pay what you did for what you got. I feel like i was dealing with incompetent idiots.

for your amount, you had drs and nurses' digging around in your body. i would assume that you would want competent, skilled, and well trained people doing that. It doesn't come cheap.

Inbedded in that price is a huge amount for insurance that is not in the price of fixing my wife's car. so on whole you got for a lower price a fix that will last your lifetime by well qualified individuals. I got a questionable engine that will last at most 10 years.

BTW, i have high deductable insurance for my family. i would rather be making my own health care choices than having them made by some beaucracy (insurance co or gov.)
