This week has been a good one, full of appointments and phone calls!
I met with my Endometriosis surgeon on Tuesday morning has agreed to pursue the second bowel resection to remove the Endometriosis on my sigmoid colon. Then just 30 minutes later, I had a telemedicine appointment with my primary care provider who submitted the insurance authorization request for the referral to my colo-rectal surgeon.
That same afternoon, I scheduled my consultation appointment with my colo-rectal surgeon, even though we hadn’t received insurance approval; a step that may take one to two weeks.
I woke up Wednesday morning to an email from my medical group approving the colo-rectal surgey consult, surgery, and several post-op visits!
It’s in the works! So quickly! I currently am scheduled to see my colo-rectal surgeon on September 22nd, but have asked to be put on the cancellation list in case his calendar opens up sooner. We shall see! Then? Get that surgery on calendar to deal with my guts!
Fight. Push forward. Do what you need to do for YOU. Whatever it may be.
So today’s quote:
“Don’t just seek out help when you are suffering. Every day is a good day to learn, grow, and help yourself. Every day is a good day to invest in bettering the quality of your life.”

We can. We will. We’ve got this!
