I know there are lots of issues with our health system. .. But I'm very lucky with the amazing cardiac Care and surgeries my daughter has been able to have 'free'.
My USA friends who have kiddies with same heart defect are in over $50000 of debt with medical bills for surgeries. It's a reason why many people over there can't afford to save their babies. They literally can't afford to.

I wish more was put into health too. I was thankful that when my lapband slipped 5 years ago that I got another one put in free of charge through public health system. It would of cost $18,000 without private health. Probably $6000 with it. Can't imagine how much debt we would've been in otherwise.
I have this argument with my husband all the time. He disagrees with me

I am so so thankful for the care we receive free of charge. They saved both my and my son's life when I was in labour.

I think about this often
I have a form of luekaemia which - without very expensive drugs, or an even more expensive bone marrow transplant - is 95% terminal.
With drugs, I lead a relatively normal life.
I have twice had issues with the drugs which resulted in hospitalisation - and with all of my treatment, I am treated incredibly well.
I am just sooo lucky

Wow, @BH-KatiesMum, that's amazing. Yay for the wonders of science!
I agree, we live in an amazing country. I feel like a lot of people don't appreciate just how lucky we are. By an accident birth we happened to end up in a country like Australia whereas other people are not as lucky. I'm treading close to a topic for a different thread, though. 😉

It's so great that someone else acknowledges what a good job our health professionals do because I too have heard so much negativity that I find so unfair and gave defended the medical/health profession many times on this forum. It's so much worse or even non-existent for people in many countries across the world, we are extremely fortunate (in every respect not just medical) in Australia, and should be very grateful.
