Default Insurance Approval

John has gotten "The Letter" of insurance approval.

I have made a few phone calls and found out that they are not a PPO for our insurance but it seems that we will be able to get a waiver, due to the fact that there is no PPO in our area.

We are now waiting a call from the hospital for a surgery date.

I am happy and scared! John thinks that he is being selfish by having this surgery and taking the time off work. But he is so excited, I can actually see him getting all worked up over the possibilities.

I will keep everyone updated! And please say a prayer for us!

Diane, I know the emotions are flowing for both of you!

I agree with Jiff, selfish is the last thing he is..........you need your husband and your children need their father.

Keep us updated.
