He hit 32 on the monitors the first time, and 8 the second. He ended up in-patient for a week and on oxygen/monitor while sleeping for three months after. It was a freak reaction, and his 5th time under general, so no one can explain why it happened.
that scares me i am terrified of something like that happening but like you said its just a freak thing and there is very little chance of that, its a tough decision

The hospital charge is $2000 for anesthesia plus $250 for the dental work, plus $300 for the "dentist travel fee"
That stinks everything is so expensive but my husband is navy so we have metlife(tricare) so most if not all of it should be covered for us
