Going Under the Knife

I finally got word from the insurance lady (after I called her again!) that my surgery was approved on the 31st!?!?! She swears she faxed it to the clinic. I called the clinic who has been nothing but helpful and they still haven't seen the paper work but said that if I felt comfortable moving forward on the verbal authorization they would be happy to schedule my surgery.

So Wednesday morning I go in and have the pin put in. Tuesday I will probably have a pre-opp appointment. I have no idea what that entails but if they say I have to go, I'll go. I'll do anything to get this stupid foot fixed. ANYTHING! I'd even eat one of those nasty cockroach things from one of those TV game shows if that's what it took. I'm happy I don't have to do that, but I would if that's what I had to do!

I am VERY nervous. I am worried about pain and how wimpy I am. I'm worried about missing work for a week. I'm worried about all sorts of crap! I actually have to force myself not to think about it or I could freak myself out. I have an amazing ability to become completely unhinged with worry if I allow myself to. I am currently trying to keep that in check. I am winning at the moment. My evil twin Worry Wart could win in the end.

I am also feeling the need to completely clean my house right now in prep. I think I will spend a lot of time on laundry and scrubbing this weekend.

In other news, my iTunes account was hacked into this morning. Two purchases for $50 gift cards were made. I already called and had my credit card canceled but this kind of thing is always such a hassle. In doing a little research online it looks like this has been happening to quite a few people in the last few weeks/months. So much so that iTunes has actually changed the gift certificate purchase options so you can't make purchases larger than $50. Seems like if they knew something was wrong, and people were hacking in and stealing GC for $200, they would just stop it all together, not limit the amounts? Or at least post a warning to users? I hope my bank will dispute the charges for me. Hate to be out $100... grumble, grumble.

I couldn't be happier that you don't have to eat a cockroach in order to get your foot fixed!

I'm already hoping for a speedy recovery! (Too soon?) :)
