It seems strange to think of a radical surgical change to a perfectly healthy body with hope. Yet that is my current attitude.
SRS, or GCS, as it is sometimes called, costs between $15,000 and $20,000 – and usually, it isn't covered by health insurance. It's not covered in my plan. And that doesn't count travel and other costs involved.
I have nothing saved – not a cent. It doesn't matter. Hope rises so optimistically in my heart that I am seeking out surgeons and the letters that they require prior to sharpening their scalpels and inverting those "willies," as my friend Devin puts it. That's because I have so many friends and supporters, and I also have resources that I believe will come into play.
Besides, when you commit completely to a course of action, the universe steps in to help. Just look at what happened when Julius Caesar landed on Britain and then burned all his boats.
Lemme see … where're those matches?
