Scrap Day Sunday
The $148 Appendectomy
For this week's Scrapday Sunday I'm going to share an article that ran in the local newspaper. It discusses an itemized bill that my great grandmother, Ruby Collins (Dickerson) Grimes, came across for an appendectomy that my great grandfather had in 1944. The whole thing cost them $148!My great grandmother Grimes was a nurse for many years for the Dr. Luter mentioned in the article.
