Can I vent for a minute?
I think I have been fairly patient with the people involved with my case throughout the past few months of this process. Maybe the fault is mine – and that I don’t fully understand how lengthy this can be. The first surgery date was such a breeze to schedule – I could never have imagined this is where we’d be months later!
Last Friday when I heard YES from the University of Minnesota, I was very thankful and happy for the news, but I was also cautiously optimistic. I really won’t fully believe it until I am admitted to the hospital for surgery.
The question I have heard the most this week is: When do you think they’ll call you to schedule for surgery? Um, the short answer is: I DON’T KNOW! Last week I asked all the questions – trying to get it out of the U of M peeps when they thought I’d be getting scheduled. They couldn’t nail down a day/time….so I really have NO idea. I could get the call on Monday or in three weeks. I just don’t know. But you guys will be the first to know when I find out! =)
Sometimes insurance companies give the okay to schedule before all the paperwork is done, but not in my case. (Which I’m checking into.) I honestly thought I would have had a call to schedule this past Monday or Tuesday. I really didn’t think Friday would roll around (again) without a surgery date. With that said, most of my week was very peaceful. I think I was resting in the YES and not in the unknown. Until Thursday rolled around….and then Friday….
But as has become routine – it is Friday. The weekend is here and there is nothing more that I can do this week. So, I will enjoy another weekend (and hopefully a ski lesson).
