Progress...

Late last night, I wrote what felt like a prayer. I was asking God which direction I should go and what I should do next. This morning, I picked up the phone and called a local acupuncturist I had called previously. I had a long talk with his assistant and the things she was telling me just rang true. The entire conversation felt right. I made an appointment for the earliest date they had available, May 5th. She then suggested I call my insurance company to see if they'd pay for it. I dismissed that right away. I've had 4 years of paying for my own treatments. She urged me to try anyway.

Twenty minutes later, a "prescription" from my OBGYN had been sent to the acupuncturist and a pre-approval from my insurance company of all treatments my doctor "deems necessary" had been processed. It was unreal, too easy. I could not believe it!

Then, two hours later, the acupuncturist's office called. There was a cancellation and they can see me on Thursday! I am excited and a bit nervous, but anxious to start this next chapter of treatment.

You must have a good OBGYN. I'm glad your insurance is paying for it. Some times they will do weird things like pay for the insertion of the needles but not for the removal. I hope you don't get some weird bill like that.

Thank you guys for all your excitement!

Robby, you crack me up. Yup, I wouldn't put it past the insurance company to do something crazy like that. As far as I know, they haven't actually paid one of the bills yet, so we will see if they actually will. :)

FAITH IN GOD MEANS HAVING FAITH IN HIS TIMING.
