Pathology and a Partridge in a Pear Tree

On this first day of the 12 days of Christmas...Kathy received a call from the lab. It seems her tumor pathology report was in limbo. The spokesperson for the lab said the bill was over $3000.00 dollars. (After the insurance portion was paid.)
They wanted to know how she would pay...
(Insert sound of her jaw dropping)
"Well," the spokesperson said, "Perhaps you will qualify for financial aid."
...since her income was below $145,000.00...she applied for assistance.  Instead of a Partridge in a Pear Tree, Kathy did qualify for help!
She started her day feeling blessed and thankful. There is no room in her family for a Partridge.
I hope tomorrow is filled with holiday miracles...the back fence is still broken and the dog is escaping...and the check engine light is still on in the car.
When it rains a lot!
