officially approved!

May 12, 2009

Dear Mrs. Sheppard:

The Board of Trustees of TSP heard your appeal requesting coverage for orthognathic surgery at their May 7, 2009 meeting.

The board has approved the appeal and I will contact Regence Blue Shield to let them know that the trust will pay for that coverage.


Still need to call about what exactly is covered, but I think that will be on next Monday. I'm violently vomiting everything I eat, but don't have time to make it to the ER - I performed in a concert on Monday (with my left eye closed because it was too blurry to see out of), conducted a concert last night, had band contest all day today, conducting a concert tomorrow night, and have orchestra concert on Friday. If this is still happening on Friday you can bet your butt I'll be in the ER after school.

Unless my head just explodes on my shoulders before them. Seems like it's about to happen - I'm amazed that one little head (big head?) can hold this much PAIN.

So good to hear your admin trials and tribulations are almost over - if you can handle those you can handle anything :)

I concur that countdown/up clocks are great. Gazing at them is so restful and yet highly exciting at the same time!

YAY!!!!! I'm glad that you got the official word! I can't wait till I have a countdown clock! :) You need to take care of yourself girl! Remember is you are sick and your blood count is off you will not get surgery that day. Keep this in the back of your mind so that it will make you take care of yourself.

Too bad peace of mind doesn't seem to affect the migraines. Man, won't it be sweet to see those behind you? Can I hear an "Amen!"?

Wonderful to see the verdict in print ~ It's really REALLY going to happen, Steph! 6 more weeks!!!!
