At 3pm, I called the clinic to let them know I had baselines today and that I had not gotten a call. They noticed that the hospital had not faxed over my ultrasound nor blood work results so I gave her the synopsis. My awesome nurse, Greta, placed me on hold, came back to the phone and told me that I would start stims tonight and she would put all of my instructions on the patient portal for me. I am as happy as a pig is slop !
Today was a bit harder with mixing the meds. My protocol has changed quite a bit. I am now taking 300 gonal f, 300 menopur, 20mg prednisone, 5 units Lupron, lovenox, and neupogen. The hardest part was mixing the meds then injecting into each menopur vial and drawing back out to inject the next vial. LAUD !
I managed to get it all done and had no pain when injecting the three shots. Now I am burning up. I now know what my mom meant when she was having hot flashes. I feel like I have fire shut up in my bones, like they say in a Baptist church ! ‘Laud Jesus It’s A Fyah!”
Anyway, I am so glad to be on this journey once again and am keeping a positive outcome that my twin babies will be here in July ! Right now, they will have my niece’s birthday as a due date. I think I need to whip my ice crusher back out and the grape syrup. Feels like Summer !
I am going to rest up so that I can be bright eyed and bushy tailed tomorrow for my mom’s surgery. Please send up prayers tomorrow at 12 when she checks in and at 2 pm when she goes in for surgery.
