I just hung up with the patient advocate at Surgical Weight Control Associates in Las Vegas. She did receive my fax. She took a brief history and said she could have the authorization as early as this afternoon.
I am literally shaking.
Granted there was a lot before Step One as I explained in my “A New Beginning” post but for this part of my journey I am on my way.
Two scrambled eggs for breakfast and coffee, yes with creamer and sugar because I have decided to enjoy it while I still can, plus a little hand holding from one of my best friends.
All new beginnings start with a good breakfast and a great support system.
I guess Step Six is waiting nervously for the phone to ring…if it is not, it should be.
