Pay Back

I asked NN to call me today to discuss the situation. She finally called at 545pm MT. Seriously? I waited all day for the phone and then finally went out to dinner and forgot my phone. She did email that she will look over GC's file this weekend and get her on a short dose of BCP to bring on a period early. Ok, its something I guess.

Tonight at family dinner, I did what I could to get through the night. I drank. A lot. This week I have rediscovered my love affair with wine and caffeine. Oh the caffeine, how I have missed you these past years. I can literally count on one hand the amount of decaf lattes I've had since starting at CCRM. I think I have had Star.bucks everyday this week. I guess that's a bright point.

Tonight at dinner, it was flu shot night. My dad brings it home and we all get vaccinated. A. let me inject him. Seriously, why in the world would you let a drunk amateur inject you? True love. In four years of being on stims I have never given an injection. Today was the day. It was exhilarating. I felt free. Maybe it was the alcohol, I don't know. Either way, I liked it.



  1. I totally get the coffee/wine thing, I call it the IVF rebound. Enjoy!!!
    I hope all works with the GC cycle timing!!!

  2. Hope everything works out with GC. :) Cracking up about the shot. Bawhahah!

  3. Surprised you haven't mentioned chocolate yet. Glad you are having some positives. I could give myself shots, but I don't know if I could give one to my husband.


  4. Pay back indeed! And SO glad the nurse is going to bring on an early AF for your GC. Thank you GOD! She sounds quite responsive to the BCPs so I am sure she'll respond beautifully and AF will cooperate. Crossing fingers!

  5. Putting the power in the hands of the patient. Cracks me up.

    I am so high on caffeine right now I might break the keyboard.

  6. LOL at the "drunk amateur" line! Its about time you can direct needles at someone else!

    Enjoy all the indulgences - caffeine, booze, sugar, all of it! I know you'd trade it all, of course, but it is also nice to get some of your normal life back too.

    I hope the BCPs will help with the GC, and fast!

  7. I hope that NN is able to get things figured out so that you can get GC tested sooner rather than later.

    I've also enjoyed Star.bucks every day this week! I'd like to think we were enjoying that caffeine together. :) I had my weekend of drinking last week, and it felt really good. It makes me even more angry when I think of all the things we have to give up in this process and then to end up empty handed anyway.

    And I LOVE that you were able to give A his flu shot! I will have to remember that next year!

  8. I love the pay back! It does sound exhilarating. Enjoy all your caffeine and alcohol - you deserve it!!

  9. Too funny about the shot! Hope the GC will be ready to go soon....

  10. Personally I've been addicted to the diet Cokes! So funny on the shot!!
    And check out my blog, you sweet friend :)
