Thanks, everyone! :)

Tia @Anne Blake, I will definitely update this thread when I have something to update it with.  I expect to do a whole bunch of waiting between updates. 

The next thing will probably be a consultation with my doctor prior to submitting my application to Dr. Brassard's clinic.  Then, several months' wait until they respond.  Then waiting for a date, then waiting for the date to arrive.

So, I don't recommend holding your breath waiting for updates!  But I promise to update it whenever something happens!

I’m watching and cheering for you from the Peanut Gal-ery!

Today is the day I was supposed to see my doctor to go over my application to the GRS Montreal clinic.  We had a major snowstorm yesterday, and the roads were in no condition for long distance travelling, so I didn't go.  She doesn't actually need my presence to write whatever letter she needs to write, it was just an optional appointment anyway.  So I told her to go ahead and send the letter and call me if she needed any information from me.

She is pretty efficient, so I will assume that the letter will go to Montreal some time this week.

Kathy, good choice to avoid the icy and snowy road drive. Congratulations on taking the next step, how long until you expect to hear back from the Montreal clinic?

Thanks, Tia.  I am told that it takes them about three months to respond.  After that, I will get a date that will be at least six months in the future.

I understand wanting to be there in person, but you did the smart thing. Another step forward, regardless. Awesome!!

Yes I have to agree Kathy. I'm glad you didn't venture out on to those icy snow packed roads. I hope things go ok with your letter.

Hugs.

So, I get back from the mailbox, and I am checking through a stack of mail.  Hmm, bills, more bills.  Oh!  Who do I know in Montreal?  ???

I got my information package from Dr. Brassard's clinic in the mail!!  ;D  Some preliminary info and some forms to be filled out by me and my doctor. 

SQUEEEEE!!!
