I'm Famous!

I'm famous!. That's me in the brown shirt. I let J take the pictures and pick out which one he liked. I think I look so dorky!

I spent about 3 hours on the phone this morning trying to get this insurance stuff resolved. My OB's office actually returned my phone call! But in the end they said it was coded the only way they know how and there was nothing they could do if my insurance wouldn't cover it. I called the insurance company and spoke to a different rep today. She said it should be covered except that the diagnosis code they used indicated that it was a "fertility treatment" so they couldn't cover it. So, I'm back to the OB's office. Armed with the handy website for ICD9 codes from Lorem, I now have a list of possible other codes they can use. Why should I have to go looking this crap up myself? Anyway, this afternoon I will call my buddy Linda at the doc's office and go at it with her again, but this time armed with so new suggestions. I have decided that if this phone call doesn't elicit any results I'm writing a letter directly to my OB and explaining my situation and seeing if she can help. I hate to do that but by golly I'm going to get something done about this! Stay tuned!

Still no egg in sight. Between the insurance crap and no egg, I am really depressed right now. Of course J's answer is to just wait; "it'll happen when it happens". There is no light at the end of my tunnel right now. Everything is completely black.

Did I mention that my car's AC crapped out today?

You're famous! You and your purple luggage! Very nice!!!!

I hope your Linda is as nice as my Linda. And, for what it's worth, the first time I met my RE he told me that insurance companies inevitably will cause trouble, and to fight like hell. Fight like hell.
