NICU Reunion

A few weeks ago we attended Joey's NICU reunion at Sutter Memorial Hospital. It was great seeing some of his former roommates and some of the wonderful nurses who took care of him while he was in there. Needless to say they were impressed by his progress (demonstrated by his healthy weight and rolls)! Here are some pics:

Joey and Marie (the social worker in the NICU who was so kind to us)

Joey and some of his nurses... this is Tracey, the nurse who admitted him to the NICU
And another one of his nurses who I remember, but whose name I don't recall
We finally got the Explanation of Benefits from our insurance company for Joey's NICU stay... can anyone guess how much 15 days in the NICU costs?????? $171,000 and I'm not even sure if that included his surgery. It will be interesting to see how that compares to the 15 day stay we had in the PICU. ... I'm sure we will be getting that one shortly. Thank God for insurance!
