Met a girl who sang the blues,
I asked her for some happy news,
But she just smiled and turned away.

Well, I do have some happy news. New insurance ID cards are on their website. Printed and will fax to Dr Gast tomorrow, along with updated letter from therapist. Then we wait some more.
They are definitely planning on starting surgery up. Some on the Facebook group have gotten rescheduled.

Fingers crossed Tonya. That's good new. I'm hoping the same too.

Thanks @Maddie @Donica and @OzGirl .




Faxed the papers and sent a message through MyChart that I would be doing so. Should hear back next day or two that they have them.

Picked up an estradiol refill today, realized that my stop date for surgery is in 4 weeks.

Sounds like you have a pretty good plan. As far as the ride home after the hospital, if you lay the seat all the way back and be careful getting in and out I’d think you’d be fine. I’m local here in Madison so it wouldn’t be any trouble to get you the Starbucks :).
Have my pre op on June 25th. I'll finalize hotel plans after that. Was thinking I'd be reclining the seat as far as possible for the trip home.

4 weeks will go by so quickly. Next thing you know it’ll be the night before and you’ll be too excited to sleep. I think I dozed off for like 15 minutes the night before mine. It’s not even my surgery and I’m excited for you lol.

It's 4 weeks to stop estradiol day, so 7 weeks to surgery day. With the threat of cancelation, I've been trying not to get to excited but every time I see something like that I can't help it.

Calm down Tonya, its still 49 days away.

Hey Tonya, have you thought about writing down your thoughts as you go through this? I'm coming up on three years post op, and although I had a thread at the other place, I'm starting to forget some details now. It was a wonderful time in my life. I want to remember as much as I can.

Not specifically. Figured I'd post more about it as things start to happen. Be an idea to try to post more often .

Very happy for you Tonya. Things are happening quickly Now, but for you it probably seems like it’s taking an eternity. I look forward to reading about everything that happens.

by the way great song quoted above........

I went down to the sacred store
Where I'd heard the music years before
But the man there said without a mask you can’t come in

Wait I might have gotten that wrong.......🤔.....

Hugs
Nicole

only been to a game at Lambeau once. Playoff game way back in the strike year, 1981 I think? My mom used to have season tickets for the Milwaukee games back in the day. Gave them up after they moved to Indiana. Year later they stopped playing at County Stadium. If she'd have held them one more year they would have had tickets for 2 games at Lambeau every year.

Thanks everyone for the happy thoughts and good wishes on my surgery. Heard back from them today. They have the new insurance, scanned paperwork into the system. Got a call from hospital registration to update the insurance and other demographic details. Nurse said she would flag my chart to check on the PA middle of June. I believe I'm again officially waiting for insurance approval.

@Moni suggested I write down how I feel. Thought of this that I ran across the other day.FB_IMG_1590112360215.jpg

Being a junior level Deadhead, I've some experience with the other E.
When things go right and I start to think about this actually happening, it feels that good.

My first thought after reading that tweet though, was OMG E on E would be so intense.

Sorry Tonya. I tried to load your home page but got all kinds of popups telling me to turn off my add blocker.

Makes a painting out of a selfie.
At least mine all look female, if not a lot like me.
