So, hooray, I saw my surgeon, Dr. Spitz today. He feels I'm an excellent candidate for RNY and that I'll do well with the surgery. Says my diabetes will be gone within a day or two of surgery, TOTAL HOORAY
I took the 567 question computer part of the psych eval today, took about an hour (they said it would take 2, (so hmm, should I have thought those answers through more carefully). I swear it was the weirdest thing I thing I've ever done and I've done a few weird things in my life. But those questions were just odd, some of them I wasn't even sure I was reading correctly and I swear the questions repeated themselves about 5 times each or so it felt.
Tomorrow I will get up at 4am, ugh
leave around 5am and be in Spokane for an 8am appt with the doctor part of the psych eval. I hope they don't put me to sleep cuz I'm not the best early morning person out there - my mind is a blank till around 9 or so.
My case manager at the surgeons says that once they have the eval, and it will take a week or two, then they will submit for approval with my insurance and the next thing will be a call giving me a surgery date, an appt with the NUT and when I start my 2 week liquid diet. So it's moving right along and I'm really getting excited, but I'm sure it will be about 3 weeks before all approvals are done and in and before I might even have a chance of getting a call.
Now I just have to pray I'm a normal crazy for the psych doc tomorrow, haha
