I got the word on Thursday, June 11, 2015 I called the insurance company and was told that my surgery was approved!!! So, I called the surgeon’s office and was told the same thing. Jackie had called and left a message on my cell phone, but I had nothing. Later that night, I restarted my phone and I ended up with 4 different message. LOL
I was transferred over to the surgeon’s office and had to leave a message. Thursdays, I found out later is clinic day and they never answer the phone. I called back on Friday and Hollie was off.
I am in panic, excited mode right now, I want my date; I need my date, trying not to call every 5 minutes.
As I was on a conference call with work, on Monday, I get a call back from Hollie. Yes, I called again on Monday morning and she was in a meeting.
1:15pm CST I got my surgery date: JULY 13, 2015.
The phone calls and text messages start after that, yes I was still able to get my work done.
I was able to get so much done after work and before going to my school board meeting.
I found a hotel room for my Dad, as he is flying up to go to Nashville with me for two weeks.
And today, Dad called with his flight information.
I started 2 weeks ago doing a modified 2 week diet from my surgeon’s office. Was told to only eat chicken or fish and veggies. I needed to shrink the liver for surgery.
I have lost 12 lbs to date. From 321 to 309 as of Monday, June 15, 2015.
This is it for the very happy news……. now for the not so happy news……..
I had a bone scan on Friday and it looks like I may have a stress fracture to my left lateral foot.
I go back this week, since I didn’t get a call saying that it was clear, and see what we will do next.
