My green card has expired and I'm waiting for my I-797 abroad

Hello everyone,


I got a text notification that my i-751 application has been received by USCIS on Jan 8 and I just received an I-797C notice for the biometric appointment on Feb 13. I'm currently abroad and my green card has expired. Can I re-enter the US with the I-979C notice for the biometric appointment? I've been reading that I should receive an I-797 notice to extend my green card while my application is being processed but I'm not sure if there are 2 I-797 notices (one for the extensions and one for the appointment) or only one that serves both purposes.


In case I need another I-797 notice to re-enter the US, should I be worried that my biometric appointment came first? 


Thank you very much!

@aleful Thank you for replying. I already gave them a call before this notice came last week saying I was waiting for a receipt from them. I'll probably give them another call on Monday to push back my appointment because I'm stuck outside of the country for now.
