A woman has a serious accident and ends up in the hospital undergoing surgery.
Her husband waits in the waiting room, distraught, when several hours later the surgeon exits the operating room and approaches him.
‘Hello, the surgery went well. Unfortunately, the recovery will be very long. First, she’ll need years of physical therapy, costing $2,000 per month.’
The husband starts to get worried. ‘Then, she’ll likely need more surgeries in the future, but they won’t be covered by insurance and could amount to $100,000 to $150,000.’
The man starts to break into a cold sweat. ‘And in reality, she’ll need a high-quality wheelchair and a suitable vehicle for transporting the disabled, but with $30,000, you should manage.’
The husband, deeply concerned about the money, looks desperate. The doctor then pats him on the back and says,
‘Don’t worry dude, I was just kidding. She’s dead!’
