Just wanted to update really quick about my status. I called the surgeon's office last Thursday to check to see if I had anything due, and the lady said that she had literally just sent in the paperwork to my insurance company right before I called. I have Aetna as my insurance company and she said that they usually respond pretty quickly so that I should be hearing from them in probably a week or so. With the holiday I'm guessing I probably won't hear until next week sometime and I should be able to schedule a date then. I'm thinking most dates are a month and half out from the scheduling point so I guess we are looking at mid January, early Feb. Hopefully 6-7 months later I can get the braces off in the summer. Ill post again once I hear back from them. Oh I just noticed im 12 days away from having braces for a whole year. Seems like yesterday I was just posting on here about finding out I was going to have to get them. Time sure does fly by.
