Settled in St. Louis; however,

We arrived in St. Louis and are settled in.  Today was full of pre-op tests including one big surprise.  In the middle of getting my x-rays, Dr. Lenke's nurse walked in and said she was having a bit of an issue with my insurance.  Three words I was not expecting to hear from her were, "Insurance denied surgery."  That statement was immediately followed by, "You need to lay on your stomach so we can push your spine straight for the last x-ray."

I cannot begin to explain how I feel right now.  We are getting different answers from the insurance company at this point.  The insurance company told me and Jeremy that they are missing documents while they told the nurse they determined that the surgery will not benefit me.

I continue to pray that God guide me through this journey.  Will post more when details unfold.



  1. Doreen, please know you are in our thoughts and prayers! May the Lord surround you with His peace. ~Proverbs 3:5-6

  2. Those damn insurance companies!! Of course you would benefit from the surgery!!!!!!! You just relax and keep praying. I feel confident that a fellow 16th Street MS survivor can handle this one. Go get them Jeremy!!:)
