Re: A Good News Day

Lainy....it is so encouraging to hear for the insurance company to cave in to you.  What was your trick?

Re: A Good News Day

None really. Cigna just has their "rule" that the patient must have radiation first. When we first requested CK Teddy had not had the radiation. Oh, I also remember now that his tumor was 7 and the radiation did shrink it. And there can be no Mets. So, this time when Dr. Kresl requested it, request granted. Thank God as that is the ONLY thing that is going to work!
