Finally a date......

Well many of you know that I have been trying for over a year to get approved for gastric bypass surgery. Guess what.....I'm approved. Yeah!!!! Last week my insurance company denied my request due to me breast feeding 3 years ago and losing weight. My doctor appealed that yesterday. I talked to his office at 11:33 yesterday and they were about to get on the call with the insurance company. At 11:40 they called back and the ruling had been overturned. Praise God. I had already decided that if I wasn't approved then it was God's will and I would deal with it. So after telling me that I was approved Sandra said that we could schedule my surgery for November 5th. NOVEMBER 5TH???? That's just next week. I asked if they had anything else open and she said November 10th. I took that date. So, I will be having surgery on November 10th!!!! I am so excited and so nervous. It has started to hit me that I will be missing Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas dinner, and various other things. I'm okay with that. This is something that I've wanted for 2 years and it's going to be a reality in less than 2 weeks. Wow!!!! I will ask for support from everyone. I know I will need the encouragement. We went to dinner with friends last night to celebrate. We won't be going to dinner again for awhile so we thought we should get it over with. I will start my pre-surgery diet this weekend and get ready for the big day. Praise you Father for giving me this opportunity and I will give it my all. Thank you friends for being there for us. We appreciate each and everyone of you.
