Hospital Bill 1965

I was poking through some old photos last night and came across this old hospital bill from 1965. The family story is that I pulled a bowl off scalding hot soup off the kitchen table, severely burning my upper arm and chest. I still bear the marks of this childhood accident today, in fact.

What amazed me the most was the cost for 3 days in the hospital, laboratory fees, drugs and dressing. In case you have a hard time reading the handwriting, the grand total came to $66.25! I am sure that something like this today would cost thousands of dollars, easily.

Just a small reminder of the world I used to live in.
