So, today I got the call that I have been waiting 5 days for. My insurance company approved my surgery! I am definately getting it on 12/11/12. OH MY GOD!!!! I am so happy! I was starting to get a little scared because I had completed all my requirements on the 13th of November so I was expecting to hear from them like a week later, before thanksgiving. When I got the call it felt like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. Now it is back to preparing like a mad woman. AAAHHHHHHHHHH........ 8 more days!!! Best christmas present ever!!!
