Exclamation I'm Approved!!

I called my insurance company this afternoon and I'M APPROVED!!
I called my doctor for a surgery date, but they wouldn't give me a date until they have the paperwork from the insurance company. But - I'M APPROVED!!!

I called my doctor's office to see if they had gotten the letter of approval yet. They said they would call me Thursday with a surgery date.
