Day 119: Can we move my appointment to next week?
Phone rang at 8:30 am, missed the call, picked up the voicemail… and started to do that happy dance. The great news, they had a cancellation, the bad news I need to be in on Monday for pre-op appointment and surgery would be Wednesday. Well…. we do love a challenge! Now look, I am not going to say that health decisions should be made based on deductible years, but I am also not going to pretend that is not part of the equation. Cancer is expensive. Period. Regardless of what level of treatment you are getting… I bleed money… it is insane. Getting this process started two months ahead of the originally scheduled date means I may be able to squeeze the second surgery, where they exchange the expanders for the implants, into this deductible year. And, this means I am yet one more step toward feeling like the whole me.
