    Default Approved!

    Just got the call that my insurance approved me for the sleeve. I started my 6 month required diet all the way back in october! All the stressing over getting approved is finally gone. Now all I have left to do is go in for a cardiac clearance then it's the two week pre-op diet then I'm good to go! Because I'm a worrier, I'm still a little bit worried I won't pass, but I think I should be fine. I just had to scream it from the virtual rooftops since I haven't told many people. I'm excited!
