OMG! OMG! OMG! ...It happened... I'M APPROVED FOR SURGERY!!! On the very date that I was shooting for on my fall break from school (October 6th)... And I am so excited and relieved and ready to get this show on the road...
So I send out a broadcast text to my closest pals, the hubby notifies the grandmother/babysitter, and we call an emergency family meeting to explain the recent breaking news to our 8 & 12 year old sons. While going through the intinerary for Wendesday, the 12 year old wanders off to make toast, leaving the 8 yr old wildly waving his arm above his head to ask me a question like I'm his 3rd grade teacher. When I finally call on him, he asks, "Can I have a corndog now?"
So there you have it-reality at its best. I'm changing my life, and my son wants a corndog. So much for allaying their fears!
I am so glad this moment has happened... and thanks to all my friends who have listened to me bitch and moan about the whole freakin' process. Ya'll have been worth your weight in gold. And most importantly-a million thanks to hubby who relentlessly pestered the #*%! out of the insurance company until they couldn't take it another minute...and hit the approval button just so he'd never call again.
Love ya bunches!!!
