They were unable to get insurance clearance in time so I will not be having surgery on the 16th.
I'm feeling completely ok with this as I really didn't think things were going to happen for the 16th at this point anyway.
I do need to discuss with my boss on Monday as they can do the surgery on 2/13, but that is the day that my coworker gets back from her vacation so I know it would be better for me to have surgery later that week. They only do bariatric surgeries on Mondays and Wednesdays. On 2/15 my surgeon is on emergency converage and the following week he is away at a conference.
He is going to see what he can do about 2/15, but my choices are really 2/13 or 2/27.
I do prefer earlier than later for two reasons.
1. My parents are away in March and would prefer to be around for my recovery to help
2. I won a special employee parking space in March and it would suck to be out of work and not be able to use it
Although, when it comes to the parking space, I could possible see if I could switch months with one of the remaining winners. I know it's a silly reason, but I was excited about winning it and want to be able to use it!
I'm feeling very zen about the situation right now. It's been a long week and I'm just tired.
I'm looking forward to picking my son up, having some dinner and then going to bed early.
