Bubble, bubble... toil and trouble

My brain is bubbling over.

So. My insurance has decided they don't want to pay for the RF procedure I had done in May even though I meet every one of their tests for medical necessity. I have now learned (the hard way) the difference between "preauthorization" and "pre-determination" only one of those is actually guaranteed to be covered. Sheesh! What an expensive lesson. (I'm absolutely fighting the decision, don't worry.)

The nerves in my neck are already starting to wake up, and at this point I can't wear any type of a bra-sports or otherwise-without severe pain. I never thought I'd be sad about being so "liberated". Surgery is more and more a reality, and hopefully will happen before year's end since our deductible/out of pocket has been met.

We are still enjoying having my Grandma live with us. We have lots of quality time and talk about "the old days".  We eat ice cream and strawberries and munch on my aunt's garden-fresh veggies. I rub her feet, her knees, her back and her arms and I hope some of her goodness rubs off on me.

Some of the insurance rules completely blow! I am glad you are fighting it and hope for surgery that will be a success.

You are a lucky and blessed lady to have Grandma live with you! Memories for you and your kids
