UHG! Date and location change!

So, Dr. T's scheduler called and verified my insurance coverage, and then informed me that I would be having my surgery at Zale Lipshy, instead of Parkland.

Dr. T. prefers to work at Zale because he's trying to build up his hours there, and come to find out, he ONLY takes his self-pay patients to Parkland.  Otherwise, its Zale.

Thursdays are his Parkland days, so the next available date was October 10th.

Not too terrible of a wait, but it cuts off 4 days that I would be normally taking off from work.

So, instead of 2 weeks and 2 days with an extra weekend off, its just 2 weeks.

But all in all, I'm thankful that its all set in stone.

I have a pre-op appointment with Dr. T and the hospital next Friday and an appointment with my ortho to get my surgical hooks put on the following week.

17 days and counting.

Will be a busy couple of weeks.
