Wisdom Teeth Extracted

June 8th, 2020 at 01:00 pm

Our youngest daughter had her four wisdom teeth extracted last week under anesthesia. Our insurance covered all but the anesthesia, so our portion was $651. I think this is in line with what we paid for our older daughter. She has breezed through recovery with very minimal pain medication. The opioid med made her nauseous, so I picked up anti nausea medication which she took once. And after that first day she has taken just three ibuprofen. Swelling continues to go down each day. The medications were all generics and under our insurance varied from $1.60 to $2.44! Glad those didn't cost much, because they are all going to be tossed soon.

In other news, my husband is still not home from his work trip. It has been extended another 1 to 3 weeks. We are not happy with how the military has handled their personnel during their CV mission. The only positive is that we might make more money because of per diem...all though I think my husband handles stress by lots of food and snacks being bought.

It's only a week until payday and my daughter and I are not spending much being home most of the time. There is bound to be some savings from that!

    Does he have to use the per diem for all snacks and stuff? Like even buying a coke from a machine? Or when you are traveling for work there is usually food provided at wherever he is?

    Per diem covers food and incidentals. The hotel he is at is providing a to go type breakfast, other than that, no his work (military) does not provide food or snacks, like major corporations might at a conference.

    That is a long time for him to be gone. I'm sure that's tough although you're probably glad to have your daughter home for the summer.

    That's a good price for wisdom teeth. I think we paid over a thousand. (in addition to what the insurance paid)

    My son works for the government, and he gets a set per diem when he travels. That's nice, because he can really underspend the limit and get some nice pocket change! But he hasn't been traveling since the pandemic started; it's all done by phone/video now.

    Hope the hubby gets home soon. Hopefully it will mean a little extra moolah for you.

    Sorry about the wisdom teeth, but sounds like your daughter is faring well and that's good.
