Got my flight booked! Next Friday (not this one but the next) I'll be flying down to San Antonio for a quick trip. After my plane lands, my dad is picking me up and we'll drive 3 hours back to my parents' house. Then Saturday morning, I'll meet my surgeon. His office has a branch in Corpus Christi (near my hometown) where I'll meet him and some of his staff. His website says that you do a TON OF STUFF in addition to the seminar: meet with him, meet with nutritionist, and meet with a psychologist all on the SAME DAY. The website said it can take 4-6 hours. I already did all that stuff here in Pittsburgh before I got denied by my insurance company so hopefully the surgeon will just accept all my paperwork. I got it in the mail yesterday!
The day after my appointment, I'll be flying home again.
In three days time, my dear dad will drive a minimum of 14 hours shuttling me around all over the place. He is so sweet.
Anywho, after meeting the surgeon I'll know what the "next step" is and how fast I can get surgery. I'm hoping for early July. Heck! I want it sooner but we have a family vacation scheduled for June 15-26.
