This week, we find out that the family’s insurance doesn’t touch the bills from Rex’s asthma attack, leaving the family with a brand-new, house-killing $24,000 debt. The ensuing stress, combined with the anniversary of her mom’s death, takes an emotional toll on the exhausted Laura — and ignites battles with Todd that the kids fear may lead to divorce.
But it’s Dean to the rescue again, with proactive suggestions for the couple (you might want to take notes, too) on how to manage Rex’s medical bills responsibly, and dent — but not break completely — the family’s small bank-account surplus.
