Good News and Bad News

Which do you want 1rst????

Bad news: Surgery has been re-scheduled for Wednesday next week ?!? At 2:00 pm today, ins rep called, said 2 of the dr's the hospital scheduled for my surgery were not "in my network" and I would have to pay for them out of pocket unless they re-scheduled dr's. So, I called the dr's office, the the hospital - back and back and back and forth until finally found out that if I had the surgery tomorrow at this particular hospital I would end up paying $1500-2000 for the surgery. WTF??? Less than 24 hr before surgery and now after I have given blood! Thank goodness there was no Mickey D's on my side of the road or I would have been in big trouble!!!!

So, after like 12 phone calls and crying fits, glasses of wine and breaking down, surgery has been rescheduled at another facility where I will not have to pay anything!!!! AAAAAAGH!!! I feel like someone put me thru the ringer twice and are not done with me:( So, now it is re-scheduled to Wednesday next week!

I did manage to be good so far... have not eaten alot..only the low fat blk bean soup from Panera Bread. Only soup, no baugette or pc of it!!! Only a few crackers! No very hungry after all the trauma!!!

Waiting for the good news: I weighed this morning and loss .5 lbs. So that is a total of 15 lbs in 7 weeks! YIPEE!!!

Now I am just trying to get thru the day without losing it...but with all this stress it may not happen! Hope everyone is doing better than me... will chk on everyone later, going to take a nap now! ((hugs))

Wish I could give you a hug IRL (in real life) I know you are going through so much and under so much stress but I must say you are handling it beautifully!!
One day you will look back at this time in your life and go "pftttt.. what was I worried and so upset about? It was nothing"
I am sure everything is going to be fine! I know the insurance company sounds like a BIG pain in the ass but it does sound like they do have your best interest at heart...and that is a good thing!!

My thoughts are with you and I am sending hugs your way. Surgery is bad enough but then when you have to wait an extra week thats really upsetting. Kudos to you for staying OP with all you've been going through. Take care of yourself.

Congrats on the loss. I'll be thinking about you this week. I know it'll be hard, but try to just focus on the moment so you won't think so much about the upcoming surgery. I know, easier written than done.
