So, after not hearing from J for 2 days, and becoming really worried (and rightly so!) I finally heard from him yesterday night (or really early morning for him). Apparently food over there isn't as good as mine *wink* and he got some sort of food poisoning. They don't know if it is viral or bacterial, so they are treating him for both. Had to go to the doctor on base and get pills and an IV.
Orginally when we were preparing for him to go over there, we were told that his insurance would be good over there. WRONG! They take Aetna but his company wasn't on the list. So he had to use his debit card where his paycheck goes (which I wasn't going to have him take, but glad I did!) and $379 he's good to go. Funny thing is, they write the number down and process it in the states. Great, now I have to monitor the account to make sure there is no fraud. J doesn't really think of those things :P
Someone has definitely dropped the ball somewhere, and they are supposed to look into it. I will hopefully hear from J tonight again, or tomorrow morning with some news.
I'm just glad I didn't go all debt paying happy and not leave enough for what J had to pay.
Back to working the numbers...
