Someone from the bariatric center actually called me today, to make sure my message from a week ago had been returned. She didn’t think my insurance approval request had been submitted yet, but — again — said it should be submitted today. She promised she’d find out for sure and let me know, but she did not. So, tomorrow I’ll go back to my plan of contacting the patient coordinator. On the whole, I’m super happy with this center. I believe they are trying, and I do appreciate that someone (finally) reached out to me, but I just need to know that the approval wheels are definitely in motion.
In other news, Verizon is crediting me $20 for my 56-hour service outage. The wasp nest wasn’t their fault, so I’m pleasantly surprised.
For some reason I haven’t been interested in Real Food today. Lunch was Cheerios, peanut butter, and a protein shake; dinner was oatmeal, and I’m about to have some sugar free pudding. I have meatloaf and beef tips in the fridge, pierogies in the freezer, and soup in the pantry, but I just wasn’t interested in any of it. Maybe subconsciously I’m aware of the glutton feast that shall be this weekend and I’m conserving.
Nah: I don’t have a date yet, so there’s nothing to postpone. Once the bariatric center gets the approval they will call me with a surgery date, and we’ll work backwards from that to schedule my pre-op appointment with the surgeon and determine the start date of my 2-week liquid diet. I’m hopeful for surgery sometime in mid-to-late October…we’ll see.
Thanks for the crossed fingers!
Hey, I’ve heard of Yakima! I have good friends who live about 40 miles north of Yakima (in Ellensburg); that’s where one of the regional airports is.
