  •  Or a tick (7+ / 0-)

    My 30 year old healthy spouse went on a labor day picnic and was bitten by a tick.  She developed Rocky Mountain spotted fever.  She was in intensive care for two weeks, given a 50 percent chance of survival at one point, and had a total of three months hospital and home care.  The total cost was around $250,000, and this was almost 30 years ago; I'm betting it would be a million today.   Thankfully we had good insurance and she recovered fully.  

    There is no such thing as invincible outside of comic books.
