Omg, this is actually happening!!

I just got off of the phone with my insurance company. I was approved the first time around in barely 3 business days!

This entire thing has been so surreal. I'm not sure if other people go through life like this, but for me, I know major events are coming but they don't really register as happening to me until something kicks me and I fully realize it. Going to nutrition classes, getting all of my prerequisites done, etc...I knew those all served a purpose, but I think getting the official approval made me realize that THIS IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING.

I don't have any regret or anxiety. I was worried that when this started to get real, I'd talk myself out of it. I'm just giddy that I was approved to have life altering surgery!

I suspect the next wave of realization will come as they dress me in my hospital blues. Hopefully I'll still be excited and only normal levels of nervous then!

I had my first appointment last week and already have all of my clearance appointments set to be completed before my next appointment in 4wks. If all is done by then we will schedule surgery. I was expecting this to take a lot longer but am glad it's gonna happen!

NO. So I didn't bother recapping here, but it turns out the guy at the insurance was an idiot and I was actually denied. How he mixed it up that much is beyond me. Dr Sharp appealed it and I got my official approval 2 days later. Since then, they have been waiting on a confirmation number from my insurance. I called up and got it on Tuesday and left multiple voicemails since then. No one has called me back.

I'm working from home today. If I don't hear back by 3ish, I'm just going to go in there in person. This is getting frustrating. I was supposed to be set to go at the end of MARCH. Now it is looking like end of May. *grumble*
