It's been awhile

   I knew it had been awhile since my last posting but didn't realize the last one was Oct. 3. I guess I've been busy. Actually there hasn't been anything to report. Last Thursday I had my last appointment with the nutritionist and she cleared me for surgery. Now my information has been submitted to the Cleveland Clinic bariatric nurse to make sure everything is in order. That should take about a week. The information is then sent to my insurance company for final approval. So the waiting begins.    I hate waiting for things.Waiting makes me crazy but what am I gonna do? I better hope that time flies by. I may not post again until I hear from my insurance company.
   Wish me luck.

Bills bills bills

Last week I was talking with my mother. I told her that I wondered why my insurance company hadn't given me a statement from the Cleveland Clinic. You know, one of those "this is not a bill" notices we receive after a doctor's visit. Maybe my mouth shouldn't have been running. Yesterday I received it in the mail. Not a bill from the Cleveland Clinic but Aultcare's statement. I owe the Cleveland Clinic $523. At first I was upset but then I realized that it's all in the journey for the greater good. Today, as I thought about it I realized that a mere $523 is nothing in the grand scheme of things. My life is gonna change and change big time. I guess the bill will be worth it.
