Well we got to meet with the RE yesterday...can't say that things are gonna move along any faster now though. He didn't make things any more clear for us so we still feel a bit helpless when dealing with the clinic and the pace in which things are moving. Of course as I've mentioned before our big hitch right now is IM's most recent test results so we are awaiting more news. We did get some great news though that her FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) levels looked good this time around, these are very important in regards to the ER (egg retreival) so we were excited to hear that.
IM and I both had our injections training, at least that was a proactive step in making this all happen. My meds should be rather simple, just a few oral ones (estrogen, antibiotics) and Lupron will be the only injectable. No dreaded PIO for me...we will be doing suppositories. My bum is gonna be thankful for that. IM however has several injectables, I believe four, so the heating pad will become her friend for sure.
The highlight of the visit to Chicago of course was that "A" and I were able to enjoy a very nice lunch together. It was so nice to sit down and talk face to face again...it has been so long. Keeping fingers crossed that we will be seeing one another more and more frequently over the coming month or so.
