Controlled Chaos

Here’s the lowdown: my FiL didn’t get into surgery until 2:00 yesterday afternoon, and the procedure took five hours. But according to the doctor, everything went well and the new kidney is functioning as it should. I have no idea yet how long he will have to remain hospitalized.

No in-laws descended upon my place because my MiL forgot half of her stuff when she was packing, so she spent last night at home. I will probably have them both (her and EBBiL) here tonight and/or tomorrow, but at least I have more forewarning now. :) Which leads me to this question: the hospital will probably charge somewhere in the 6-figure range for this surgery. If you’re paying out that much money to them, couldn’t they also throw in some lodging for patients’ immediate families??
