Venus



Recommended Posts

Did anyone see Venus this morning? It was shining soooo brightly. Just gorgeous!

I was taking a walk before sunrise and I was shocked at how brilliant it was. Didn't recognize it as Venus because it was so bright. Had to google it.

No, I didn't have my phone with me. But my hands are so shaky the pics would have been a blur anyway ☹️

Sure it was beautiful, that's why it was named after Mythology's Most Lovely Goddess.

Did it look like the Christmas star by any chance? (and why are your hands shaky?)

Yup! Christmas star! Kept looking around for the wise men, but I guess (being wise) they were all still asleep 😉

My hands have always been shaky. Good thing I didn't aspire to be a surgeon!

Hey will you get someone to take a pic and post it for us here? I keep trying to find (we didn't take pics in those days) an image of the night sky during 1974 or 1975 Christmas. A HUGE Christmas "Star" was in the sky and burned through the day. It was so close to earth and so bright. I remember we all would stand at the window or outside and look up at it. There were several programs about it at different churches too. Supposed to be the conjunction of a few planets/stars maybe? Can't find anything about it now. So would be totes cool if it's happening again. I will look for Venus tonight!

Nope, gotta get up early. Apparently, it's been very bright for a while now, but I haven't been taking my pre-dawn walks since the last surgery.

NBD, I'm used to it. If I plan to take pics, I bring a tripod.

      This is completely unreal but two days in a row now I have seen less than 200 pounds on the scale for the first time in over 15 years. I am a pound away from my first goal of 199 at 13.5 months post op. Time to set a new goal for the New Year!

      hello all i have a question i have cigna and i called them personally to ask if they cover the weight loss surgery and they told me off the bat that they do not cover weight loss surgery. my question is should i have my dr submit something in writing?

        Yes, continue to fight this with Cigna! Ask what process they require for a possible review of your case? Ask your surgeon and his team to help you clarify and challenge.

        Since weight loss surgery has gained more popularity and momentum - Cigna from our experience is playing games with their patients who wish to get healthier. It is egregious that Cigna would rather pay for someone's weight related heart attack, hernia, diabetes, sleep apnea and/or other costly conditions then being pro-active! As for ourselves, we tired of jumping thru they're hoops putting off my surgery until April or May 2019 with continued ridiculous, redundant requests. Yet, we know of a colleague where Cigna was cooperative and approved without a hitch.

        Because I needed weight relief off my injured left knee when exercise and dieting were no longer effective... We made the decision to self pay and get on the road to self restoration sooner than later. I wanted to start my new year with a hope and future. For us, the Cigna mill was becoming just to stressful. And, we hold a premium policy with a reputable international corporation. They refuse to pay for vitamin regime now, too.

        Your Cigna story may be better. Not to discourage you - you may or may not have a fight. It is your health and worth fighting for. Do let me know what transpires, will you? Many best wishes for a very positive outcome.

      2. GradyCat

        I don't know anything specifically about Cigna, but maybe they were thinking about the cosmetic kind. Maybe you should have said "bariatric surgery" or asked specifically about their benefits for medically necessary bariatric surgery? I got lucky and my insurance had very good coverage and benefits for WLS and I was approved on the first request. Out of $50,000 billed for the surgery I only had to pay $600.00.
