17 American Healthcare Memes That’ll Remind You To Never Ever Get Sick

It’s no secret that the American healthcare system isn’t known for being the best in the world. If you’re poor and need to have some sort of procedure done in a hospital, you can look forward to a hefty bill that may or may not put you into debt for years to come. And if you aren’t fortunate enough to receive a health insurance plan through your employer? Well, we don’t even want to think about that…

Here are 17 memes and tweets that highlight the trials and tribulations of health insurance in America!

Australian Family Spends Hundreds Of Dollars On Lifesaving Surgery For Their Pet Koi-Fish

4

Bubbles’ recovery has seemingly made Michael’s son Carter, 4, quite happy, and the fish is back to swimming around its pond at the family acupuncture business.

According to the report, the surgery cost about $300. Dr. Danyiyk said the cost may seem expensive, but when you consider what goes into treating any animal in a veterinary clinic, it becomes more reasonable, explaining everything around the medical treatment of an animal is expensive, including the consultation, equipment, nurses, the anesthesia and keeping the lights on in her business.

Dodged A Bullet: Grandma Is Going In For A Surgery This Week But It’s Not A Serious One So You Don’t Have To Call Her Or Visit Her Or Anything Like That

Photo: ClickHole

While it’s important to care for our loved ones, it’s best when doing so doesn’t require any real extra effort, which is why we’re especially pleased with this news we received today: Grandma is going in for a surgery this week, but it’s not a serious one, so you don’t have to call her or visit her or anything like that.

Phew, what a relief. No offense to Grandma, but having to visit her in the hospital would be a huge hassle.

According to an email Mom sent out to the family this morning, Grandma’s going in for a minor surgery later this week to get some kind of benign cyst removed, but it’s one of those super low-risk procedures that old people get done all the time, so it’s not like there’s a chance she’ll die or anything like that which would require us to be concerned. Unlike Grandma’s big colon resection surgery from a couple years ago, where we were all guilted into spending valuable weekend time awkwardly hanging out with her at the hospital while she was hooked up to scary tubes and shit, this week’s surgery should be a total breeze, and Grandma will be able to leave the hospital as soon as she’s able to sit up for Mom to wheel her out. That means you don’t need to bother calling her or anything, unless you really want to. Although it would honestly be pointless anyway, since she’ll be all loopy from the surgery drugs and probably won’t realize who she’s talking to.

Mom did say that “prayers would be appreciated,” but again, this is a no-biggie, in-and-out procedure that goes off without a hitch 999,999 times out of a million, so it’s not really worth wasting your time—or God’s—for what sounds like a total nothingburger.

Honestly, it sounds like you might as well save all your goodwill for Grandma’s 90th birthday party later this year, which Mom has made clear we’re all expected to attend. If you can put in a solid appearance for Grandma’s 90th, then you might be able to get away with not having to visit her again until her funeral.

That would be pretty sweet!

Anyway, interacting with Grandma when she’s sick or hospitalized is always a bummer, and it rules that you don’t have to deal with it this time around. Here’s hoping Grandma experiences no complications and recovers quickly so that this doesn’t end up turning into a whole thing!

Tiniest Surgery Patient Ever, A Goldfish, Successfully Has Tumor Removed

A goldfish weighing just one gram, that goes by the name Molly, has become the UK’s smallest surgery patient EVER. 

When Molly’s owners noticed a massive lump on Molly’s abdomen, they rush her to the Highcroft Vets, in Bristol, where it was discovered that Molly has a tumor and then the staff suggested surgery. 

The emergency surgery lasted about 40 minutes and they successfully removed the mass — Molly woke up after the procedure and was taken home!

According to the staff at Highcroft Vets, Molly is officially their smallest patient to date! They normally operate on the likes of iguanas, snakes, and crocodiles.
