Back to Work

I was originally supposed to return to work tomorrow, but thanks to a snafu in the disability process, they told me today was my return to work day.  I had to log on to my email this afternoon and do some work, and I’ll actually return to the office tomorrow.

Am I ready to go back to work?  Physically yes.

Mentally, well, I’m just not sure.  Its going to be a big adjustment, trying to balance my work schedule, my excercise, and my food.  I’m really going to have to plan things out.

In other news, I got the statement today from the insurance company.  After they told me my sugeon was in network prior to the surgery, it turns out he’s not.  They did pay $4,000 of the the $6,000 bill, but I’m going to have to come up with the other $2,000.  I think I’m just going to have to work out a payment arrangement with them next week.  $100 a month or something until I can pay it off.  I’ve hyet to receive the hospital’s bill eyt.  Hopefully that will be covered.  It was $18,000.

Bariatric surgery is not cheap.  But, if you figure you pay $2,025 a year for the rest of my life , vs. $2,000 co pay for the surgery, then, well, I guess I come out ahead.  Its worth it to save my life.



My short term disability claim was denied and the cowards waiting until this morning to tell me – when their office is closed.  So I can’t talk to anyone until Monday.

I can not afford to go two weeks with out a paycheck.
