i estimated $500,000 to a million before we got started. My dad thought I was crazy but then he's 83 yrs old and been to the doctor three times in his life...2 were accidents. I don't have any hotel stays but 35 days of driving 2 hours just for radiation. I don't think we will qualify to take medical expenses on our taxes because of the deductible.

i just organized all the medical bills from this cancer journey. they had stopped sending bills once we hit the deductible but I got a bunch more from december appts. yikes. $9000 for PET scan and a few thousand for another test. I still want to add it all up sometime but not sure if the chemo is included in the $25,000/night hospital stays. $121,000 for radiation treatment. quite the thick files despite not getting bills from September to December once we met deductible.

now we start all over again with that deductible frown
