Last month, my son had a minor accident that required an ophthalmologist to suture his eyelid. It stressed me a lot as I need to bring him ASAP to the hospital’s emergency room. Aside from the doctor’s fee and emergency room expenses, we still need to buy him new eyeglasses. The broken lens of his glasses caused the deep laceration on his left eyelid.
Again, the incident stressed me a lot. My husband resigned from his corporate job last January and just started his construction business. Every single centavo is important. And an unexpected trip to the hospital’s emergency room undoubtedly hurt our budget. “If only we have a healthcare plan,” was the only thing I uttered to my husband when he asked about our hospital trip.
