My grandmother stayed in the hospital for 7 days with my mom, and the total bill for those 7 days came to $92.10!
When I gave birth to Colin in 2000, the hospital bill was around $35,000 -- but that was an emergency c-section. In 2002, Nate's bill was right around $10,000 for a natural delivery.
I stayed in the hospital 3 days after Colin's birth and around 36 hours after Nate's birth.
It almost makes me wish I had saved those bills! I can't imagine what my grandchildren's births will cost!
I used the Dollar Times inflation calculator to see what $92.10 would be in 2010, and came up with $849.95. That's a far cry from $10,000!
