He and his wife certainly have the resources for any kind of professional assistance they could need during those first exhausting weeks. It seems unlikely he’ll be completely out of touch from Facebook(thoughneither are many professionalwomen who step away for a few months to take care of a new child).

You should talk (via chat) to their billing department and explain what happened, and I’d bet they will give you the difference as a credit to your account. I was in a similar situation where I had AT and started a new DTVN account. I was inadvertently charged for the free HBO when I prepaid for three months.
