bills updated

I've made a huge improvement in the management of my medical bills during the past 10 days or so. I have been very diligent about it. During my lunch breaks this week, I called the billing office at the hosptial in order to find out the status of bills: what was paid?; what was still outstanding?; had the remaining balance been forwarded to Medicaid?; had Medicaid paid its share?; was my payment credited to the right service? and so on. This entire process takes time, but now that I'm up-to-date with my bills, I feel like I did prior to the transplant: in control (more or less).

I was diagnosed with non-hodgkin's lymphoma in 1999 and I wanted to say I'm glad you're sharing your experiences. It's something I wished I would have done while undergoing chemo and a PBSCT. Anyways, good luck with everything and do you mind if I link to your blog?

Hi Ender. By all means, please provide a link to my blog via yours. I'd be honored. Thanks for helping to spread the word. I'm happy to know that you're doing well several years after PBSCT. Individuals like you bring so much hope to newbies like me. I hope in 7 years I'll be well like you. Thanks for commenting and giving folks like me hope.
