Three Shot Night
Never in my life would I have thought I'd be looking forward to getting needles stuck in me. But tonight I am.
The Lupron injection goes down to just 5 units tonight from the 10 units I was previously injecting.
I'm already a pro at the one shot a night and so is my husband since he's been giving me the majority of the 15 lupron shots to date. Tonight we add two more shots to the regimen.
J isn't too happy about having to give me the Gonal F shot as he doesn't want to hurt me and is afraid he'll do just that with that particular heavy duty pen like shot. I think perhaps I should give that shot to myself if he is so hesitant. However, he is a soldier and will follow orders so perhaps, I have to chuckle here, if I order him to shoot me, with the needle, he will?
The Menopur is a three vial concoction for us. We mix two of the powder with one of the sterile liquid bottle. Using a Q cap and mixing with it seems so simple but thankfully we have a number we can call if we have questions before we mix it.
