Thanks!!  I've been working at completing everything, from the insurance required supervised diet, to all the clearances for about four months now.  The pulmonary clearance took me the longest because I found out I have sleep apnea.  The sleep studies, CPAP titration, and all of the follow-ups took over a month, but it was all completed today! I finally received clearance from them.  It was a battle of hoop-jumping, but I'm sure it will all be worth it when I'm finally sleeved :D
