Medical Expenses for D's Vertigo

January 22nd, 2014 at 09:25 am

Vertigo is gone, but D still has symptoms (in the end I think it was a sinus infection that settled in his ear). He says his ear continues to feel plugged (but at least he's functional!). The tally for the medical expenses is about $215.

Not sure if it's related (maybe sinus pressure is affecting his eyes?) but he also went to get a new pair of glasses - total $261 incl. the doctor visit. He now needs them to see up close (so it's prescription reading glasses - he didn't want bi-focals). This wasn't an expected expense since he just got glasses in June.

It's a lot to absorb, and we're about $209 down on our medical "envelope." (This is a virtual envelope - we do our budgeting and tracking in moneywell which uses what they call a bucket system, but its basically an envelope). I'll need to funnel some money in there from underspent buckets. Dining and groceries should be low this month, so we can use some of that to fill that bucket back up.

    About a year ago i had a bad cold that spread to my middle ears. One of my ears was still muffled for about 10 weeks (!) long after the cold went away.

    Ugh, I'm so sorry! It's horrible, isn't it? I guess when it gets in your ears it's hard to get rid of. I'd be ok with the expenses if he was actually feeling well, but it looks like we have a few more weeks to go.

    Should N need glasses again, lots of SA participants use on line supplier Zenni, very inexpensive and they do a great job. I don't know a thing about lens but nearly all frames are made in factories in China and are very inexpensive, particularly the 'Branded' frames.
