    I found an old invoice from 1947 when my grandmother was in the hospital for surgery and stayed there for 11 days.

    How much do you think the bill was?

    It cost almost that much to PARK at a hospital these days. Things have gotten out of hand.

    I think a big part of the problem is Doctors malpractice insurance. They have to pay tons so we get to absorb the cost. If people weren't so law suit crazy and let the Doc's do their job's health care could be a heck of a lot cheaper.

    I don't remember just how much it was but several years ago we found the receipt from where I was born it was under 100 dollars and mom said that included all the doctor visits before the delivery.
