Trigger Shot Day
I awoke to snow on the ground. While the rest of the US is enjoying unseasonably warm temperatures I'm stuck with the Artic cold. Don't get me wrong I love snow and miss the snowfalls on the East Coast but really I'm ready to start putting out my seedlings. My seedlings are now screaming for more room!
Oh that was fun. While I was writing this blog post we had a black out that lasted 30 minutes. At least blogger saved my post.
Yesterday while at the RE's office we forgot to ask about the progesterone support. I had asked J to remind me but the poor dear was so tired he kept falling asleep at the appointment. Or perhaps he is now bored by my ovaries as much as I am?
Well to rectify the matter I called about an hour after I got home; when I finally remembered. The RE's IVF nurse N, yes the one who has an attitude, called me back in the late afternoon. Not bad it only took 6 hours to get a response. I've had them take 24 hours or more to call me back. She said that after speaking with Dr. C., what happened to Dr. N?, that I can start the endometrin on Friday. Yay! I guess they are finally taking me a bit more seriously or perhaps they are so sick of me they just want to shut me up.
Oh and no they didn't do any blood draw yesterday. No E2 levels to report. My RE only does that if its your first cycle on clomid or you are doing IVF. I have no clue how my egg quality is this cycle.
If anyone has any questions that I should be asking my RE let me know. I'm always willing to bother them even if they don't want to answer me.
The Army doctors are over worked but still they should try to give better quality care. I'm thinking of that guy that went on a shooting spree. It could have been avoided if they had just listened to him when he did try to get help. Many of you know where I am stationed and now know from the news reports where the guy was deployed from too. We just don't have the facilities and staff to deal with the problems arising from the deployments. We are over crowded here and yet they keep sending us more brigades as they close down other bases due to budget cuts. They don't increase the medical staff to compensate for the excess troops. Its just tragic.
