In vegas

To much

devil is a lie

Well I thought the nurse was calling me to tell me to start on my two week pre diet for vsg. She called me because my medical was discontinueed.I was floored.
Well it was because I didn't send paperwork to child support so now they are sending me the paperwork back out ,and I will hand deliver them and get the sanction lifted,then call the nurse back and get back on track. There is a God.

waiting for insurance

Well everything was taken care of ,now they need to give me my medical assistance back. So now waiting for child support to send an email to dfs. I called each party in point,and everyone says not us.I hope someone gets it right by Monday June 9th.. I am ready for my surgery date..

still waiting

I am waiting for my insurance to get approved. Hopefully I will hear something by next Friday. I'm excited, hurry call me .

Can't keep a good woman down!!

Hi Everyone, Everytime I check my e-mail I see a new face that is going to have a sleeve surgery or waiting for insurance clearence. Well I thought I was having my surgery in June . Everything was done the hospital sent my papers into my insurance ,you know what happened,,,, they denied it,because something the dietician wrote in it, oh I was hurt I was not in compliance so, I have to do three more months, so this is my second month ,and September is my third month, So I ask the dietician now do I know everything and doing everything ,'which I new already what to do before and after surgery. So now she says they're not going to turn me down . I was depressed,I wanted to go to my daughter's wedding a little smaller,well I sucked it up and,now I am back on rhis forum letting you know stay encouraged,it will happen, The dietician says it will pass so I am looking at before the year is out. I am happy it wasn't anything major,like lose more weight. So I am back posting and reading all the old and new post to keep me encouraged,until next time, Stay blessed.

waiting game

Hello everyone, I was off the site because I was disgusted with my nutritionist. I had to tale three more months of compliance and today 09/15/2014 was the last day .Now they will turn everything into insurance and wait for a date. I can't wait. I have a new fiancé and he said he's with me for better or worst. So hopefully the end of this month or next Month. Will keep you posted.

compliance done

Took three extra months for compliance now I'm done I did lose ten pounds. So now wait for insurance to be approved and the call. Oh the nutrition did say 2 weeks before surgery I need to be on liquid diet. So we will see.

Wow, I so sorry you've hit this setback. I don't really understand it all, I'm the UK and our system is different but I know this must be stressful. But you're right, you are going to do this, this is just a bump in the road and we've all had them, but we'll get over them and get to where we want to be.
