The apple does not fall far from the tree

Here is a letter that Gail's dad wrote to her.  I do not need to explain anything, it is all there!!
I found the hospital bill for the time Gail broke her leg when her dad backed the truck over her.  Here are the list of expenses: (keep in mind that these supplies were for 22 days!!!)
22 days in the hospital @ $5 per day         $110.00
Op room services and supplies                      $2.00
Anesthetic                                                           -0-
Lab services                                                   $5.25
Medicines                                                        $2.80
Treatments                                                      $1.00
X-rays                                                             $20.00
Special nurses board  0
oxygen                0
Cast                                                                $15.00
      Total                                                   $158.55
The bill was received and paid 11/20/1951
It does look like our health care has changed a bit.  Gail was almost 6 at the time and her leg healed fine.  In fact a short time before she died we were debating which leg was broken and we were not sure.
I went through a box yesterday that I had not gone through before.  Some interesting pictures and papers.  In it was Gail's health record book.  It is interesting and funny.  More later!

What a wonderful letter from your Father-In-Law. I'm sure you would write the very same thing about your family. Well, in fact you have been doing that with this blog. You have received many graces as well.
