I've been updating on my blog but to update here briefly - there's no real update. Yeah. :/
I called the Quality Assurance Dept on Thurs and the outgoing msg said I'd receive a return call the following day. Nothing Friday, so I called again before business hours were over and left yet another message - emphasizing that my c-section was Tuesday morning, I needed the placenta asap due to my religious views, etc. etc.
So, my plan is this - I am going to call on Monday and leave another msg. Not sure if they are open on Monday due to the holiday. I'll call again Tuesday morning before I leave for the hosp and leave another message. And once admitted, I'll have the triage nurse send a msg to QA about it. I am going to print a liability release form from the Placenta Benefits web site, and then include on our birth plan that I need the placenta. I will keep on QA via the nurses, if possible, and by calling them myself while in the hospital. I just want the placenta before I am discharged (day four), because after that, I don't trust it for my smoothies or even encapsulation.
Wish me luck, please. I am just ignoring this issue for the weekend, since I've done what I can at the moment.
