To those who have a few pessimistic friends in your life, tell them "don't you dare be sour", because you're not allowed to be sad on a day where Mick Foley got his health insurance back!
Aside from being just a positive thing in general (having health insurance is always a good thing), it means even more to Foley since the lack of it has been holding back a much-needed surgery for him.
He announced the good news in a lengthy Facebook post, saying "HIP HIP HOORAY! I am cleared for hip surgery! It took a couple months, but I was able to get my health insurance back, and I'll be getting my right hip replaced whenever I have a break in my schedule. The bad news is that a hip replacement will not allow me to fly for about six weeks, due to potential blood clotting issues – which can be fatal. Really nothing to play around with. The good news is that the GM position doesn't offer much in the way of long-term job security – so that break might present itself as a natural course of events."
Foley had previously posted on Facebook that he was still awaiting health insurance to take care of the long nagging issue, having done all he could outside of surgery.
"It turns out that dropping elbows off of ring aprons was not particularly good for my skeletal structure," said Foley. "While I defied the expectations of some wrestlers who predicted I would be in a wheelchair by the time I was 40, I certainly was having trouble getting around by the time I hit 50. While losing 100 pounds, and practicing DDP Yoga have been game-changers that have allowed me the opportunity to take on this job with all the travel it involves, I'm still having a difficult time getting around. I did not realize how noticeable my limping was until I watched these past Holy Foley episodes. You do remember what the Godfather told us about limping, right? It ain't easy!"
Hopefully, that operation will get scheduled soon, and you can read his full post above.
