14 business days and counting.

Still no word on surgery from the insurance company . Today has been 14 business days and counting.
I spoke to the surgeons office last week and they said that legally the insurance company has 30 days to answer . I am assuming that means 30 business days , so i guess I am half way there .
I am ok with the waiting, as long as they do not come back with , " we made you wait but OH yeah you need to have an upper GI now " . That would just take longer and waste more time.

Eating still involves shakes and liquids. I am currently trying to find a powder that I can tolerate due to migraines and taste really ! BLAH !!

Due to HORRIBLE acid reflux I had to buy one of these lovely things today . I feel like I live in a nursing home, or at least sleep in one ! I nearly choke on my acid reflux , so hopefully that helps !


  1. I'm pretty sure that, if they say 30 days, it has to be 30 calendar days. It can only be 30 business days if they explicitly say that. So that's good.

    On the shake front, I just checked and both of mine say "natural and artificial flavors" among the ingredients. Sorry!

  2. Humm i'll have to look and see if i can find if it says 30 days or business days.
    thanks for checking. I have discovered I think 100% organic is the only way I can go . I just ordered some organic egg white protein going to try that today .
