When I started this blog I was wollowing through the aftermath of another failed surgery while at the same time, preparing for another surgery what was 6 months off in the future. Last week I had emailed Dr. Philippon's assistant and let he know that I would like to be put on the cancellation list for surgery. I was not sure at the time how I would make a cancellation work, but I thought that I would just figure that out at the time. Well, yesterday I got home from a doctors appointment and had an email from his assistant stating that they had an opening for surgery on December 4th. I was beyond excited, but at the same time, scared. How would me and my husband make this work? Would we be able to? After much discussion and many phone calls to the insurance company, we were able to make it work and surgery was scheduled!
So, we will be flying out to Colorado either Friday or Saturday and will stay through December 9th. I am very excited about this opportunity. I never thought that I would be so lucky to be able to have an opportunity to get fixed by the best! So for the next 2 days there is a lot of planning to be done and reservations to be made and while this time in the process will be stressful, it will be totally worth it when I have a working hip!
I will write more and keep everyone updated as to what is happening as I get more information and such.
I am especially thankful for my husbands family who is making this whole situation possible for me. I am beside myself regarding their generosity to help me in my time of need.
