Talking Upcoming Surgery!


I have finally succeeded in obtaining approval from my insurance for the treatment and surgical excision of my daughter's Hemangioma. ::Throws Confetti:: YES!

I am happy, but so very nervous for the surgery. Dr. Waner will be performing the surgery in Mid-May, and I will be flying in from overseas. I am trying to plan my trip (Hotel, etc).

I know many of you have seen Dr. Waner for treatment and consult, so any advice for my upcoming trip is appreciated. I have no idea where to stay, everything is SO expensive! Just any any any advice would be wonderful!!!

That is wonderful news Cristine! I would call Dr. Waner's office and they can direct you to some affordable nearby hotels. They have hospital apartments nearby that are very reasonable. Good luck!
