Insurance company makes good . . .

20 Sep

Phew, surgery is approved. It was a long day. Spent most of it on the phone, with a break in between to see a surgeon up at Cedars Sinai today. The surgeon is keeping me on an antibiotic until surgery, just as a precaution. She says it appears that there is a tear or rupture (she saw some blood beneath the skin, where the skin is the thinnest). So, no running prior to surgery . . . not that I need to be told that right now 🙂 The good news is that it doesn’t appear to be damaged any further since what ever happened when I went for a run happened to an area that already had to be “dealt” with . . . replaced. So, that is great news. And, great news that the surgery is now approved. Still, just didn’t need the fire drill . . . I used to go through these all the time last year, getting this or that approved . . . from something as simple as getting my insurance to pay for a standard anti-nausea drug (that was $495.00 for three pills . . . crazy, I know) to getting second opinions approved.

I guess it is good to know that I can slip right back into that warrior mode when needed.

Didn’t need the worry though . . . especially my family and friends did not need the worry . . . especially my Mom and Dad.

My Dad had a procedure today. It is supposed to be a minor procedure. I am waiting to hear how it went. Please say some prayers for my Dad that everything goes well.

Love and peace,

Lisa

P.S. Just found out that my Dad is just fine . . . a very good day after all!
