I don't know what is up with me, but I have totally ignored the blogosphere. Oh, wait. Part of it is because I spend so much time reading posts at Obesity Help. That's what, at least 8 hours a day, ha ha.
Anyway, the great news is that I should have my chart forwarded to BlueCross/Blue Shield at any time. This monday, February 2, 2009, I met my insurance weight loss goal. According to medical center scales (which print out the proof, I might add!) claim that I have lost 30 pounds. Okay, technically 29.5, but I am rounding up.
I have been waiting for days now to hear from my insurance contact, saying she has sent the info. Nothing yet. I'll give her a solid 5 work days to complete it before I become a pox on her behind, annoying her. I hope that if it goes in next week, I'll hear something by the 20th. I just want to get a surgery date so I can get on with my life and plan some stuff. March is "dog show season," and I certainly don't want to blow money on dog registration fees if I'm going to be on the couch recovering. Ya know?
It just depends on how fast BCBS is and how heavily booked the surgeon is.
All in all, I am quite happy. It took me 4 months to lose 24 pounds, but I guess that's not all that bad. And it is very nice to have clothes that are not like tight sausage casings on me! If I could just get my joint pain to start fading, I'd be a happy camper! But that will come in due time.
The countdown begins and I hope all goes quickly!
