got approval today...we are finally going in!!!

only took a year of fear and worry. what a waste of time i hope. medtronic leads cervical


  • when is your date? I want to wish you good luck and lots of pain reduced times ahead of you!
  • Surgeon's office closed on Friday. I was able to contact Medtronic Rep. It only took blue Cross 3 THREE days to approve, sweet! Hoping for late next week or after Labor Day. WOW! To be so close after so long. It's bitter sweet. My kitty is dying of renal failure, (he's on home hospice care) I dont see how I will be able to care for him after surgery IF he makes it that long. He has been a life saver these past years while I've been stuck here on my heating pad. If this works......well, god has other plans for both of us.
  • Good luck Terri! Hoping the best for you!
  • I hope on Monday, they have a date set for you and that it is in the not so distant future. I'm sorry about your fur baby. It's so hard when they are sick or old , and we loose them. We lost a dog we had for almost 17 years , the summer before last and it was heartbreaking. Stomper was my buddy, my protector, and my companion for all of those years. The vet told us that most dogs his size don't live more than 10 years and we got almost twice that long with him. I still miss him today, and whenever I see a butterfly around, I know he's still with me.
  • Sandi 17 is VERY old for a dog thank you both, (Yasmina) for the support. Lets see what happens!
  • why I kept avoiding that answer?????? nerves
