Hello SMASHING PUMPKINS! Went to meet my surgeon today, have all preop stuff done and go to the preop class! Now I I have to do is wait patiently:cursing: until Oct 9th. I know it will fly by but wish it was tomorrow. Anyone have high blood pressure every time you go to your surgeon? Still can't figure out the ticker or how to get the smashing pumpkin flag on. Any suggestions?

Hello everyone! I just got off of the phone with my insurance(UHC) and they received my paperwork today. They said that they will be calling me with an answer in 3-5 days!!! I am so anxious! I hope that I get approved. :thumbdown:

If I am approved I will be having my surgery in October somtime also. October is a BIG month for my husband and I. His birthday is the 2nd mine is the 19th and my brothers is the 22nd. Our two year wedding anniversary is on the 28th! I always tease him that we should have a baby in October too!! :crying:

I hope that my insurance helps to make another day in October memorable! :cursing:

I've got my paperwork in and the doctor set a date out long enough for the insurance to get approval back. I'm set for 10-28 though I could go weeks before had if it happens faster. Maybe even the end of September. (only because I've been on a pre-op diet the whole time!) It's been a long road, but it's good to know that we have people we can do this with!
