Surgery Date Set

The surgery date has been set for Rachel's bilateral cochlear implant surgery. November 12th. Originally we were intending to have the surgery between Christmas and New Year's to avoid any lost school time. Unfortunately, the doctor doing the surgery only has one date per month at the children's hospital. The December date was on my birthday, and nowhere near Christmas break. So we opted for the November date. This should give the insurance company plenty of time to give us their approval. Or disapproval as the case may be. There should also be enough time for the appeal process if they choose to disapprove. The audiology center seemed to believe that I have good insurance, and that it will be approved without fuss. We'll see. So now the hard part begins. Waiting...
