Well, I got the call today…my insurance approved my surgery. I thought for sure there would be some hold up, some appeal, but nope — approved! They were ready to do the surgery next week, however, I have a lot of “stuff” between now and then…so I pushed the date — July 31st is when I will take the plunge. This gives me ample time to fully get my head around my choice. It’s been ethereal at best these last few months. At times feeling very real, and then at times, not so much. Getting an approval call is one of the more “real” moments. I had a moment of elation, followed by terrifying awareness of what I am about to do. Tonight, I feel peaceful and more even. I’m excited for this last piece of the puzzle.
