Today is the third day of my stims and I am worn out. I normally wake up at 4 am and today I woke up and fell back asleep. I was supposed to do a consult with my RE, Dr. Grossman at 7:30 am and I did not wake up to call him. I woke up at 9:05 am ! What The WHAT??? I NEVER sleep that long.
I did get an opportunity to chat with my RE and I decided after the info given me that I DO NOT want to do IVIG. I did not realize it was a blood product and there is an increased risk of contracting HIV or Hepatitis. I am NOT willing to take that kind of risk with my life and health over a treatment that is not proven to make a difference.
He and I agreed to increase the dosage of my intralipid infusion therapy instead.
Tonight, I mixed my meds while icing the tummy and then I injected the meds with no problem. I am ridiculously exhausted. I have GOT to find a source of energy to get me through Saturday. The film premiere is happening and I am now very excited about it and the cause we are supporting.
Tomorrow I have to be out of the house by 7:30 am to do my first monitoring appointment and blood work. This time I was told to drink 32oz of water prior to arrival. I pray I do not pee on the sonogram tech ! I am not good at holding pee LOL. Please pray my strength (as my great grandmother would say).
