Tighten That Belt

Illness,
Diagnosis,
Rush to emergency,
Prep the patient for surgery,
Cut back.

    this one reminds me of the documentary Sicko. In it we can see a man trying to decide which of his four fingers he will "save" since the US hospital wanted something like 40 grand for each damn finger to be attached. Meanwhile up in Canada, I guy who lost all four fingers was getting his sewn back on free of charge!!
