Yes, I'm back

I'm home, tired, sore, but definitely better than yesterday. V. has basically given you the details of the day. There's not much to fill in there. This morning was my first taste of food since Sunday night. It's amazing how good a piece of whole wheat toast and scrambled egg can taste. I know he wanted to see the doctor this morning, but she really didn't say anything different from what she told him yesterday. I do like her and when we get to the next step, she'll definitely be my OB. She's friendly, personable, funny and caring. Don't find that to easily in people these days (except all you guys).

Anyway, got home after stopping to pick up naproxen for the swelling, Tylenol 3s for the pain, and those lovely stool softeners to combat the constipating effect of the codeine.

I'm not at all happy that the 3 month wait has now become a 3-6 month wait. I know it's important, and I definitely wouldn't do anything to jeopardize our future, but 6 months!?!?!?!?! That will definitely throw a wrench into our plans as our donor, wonderful D., is now borderline for being considered a donor due to her own age, so we're waiting to hear from the clinic. I know we could start now and just have them freeze whatever they get, but I'd really rather be able to have a fresh transfer when the time comes. So based on what they say will determine where we go from here. I mentioned it yesterday while my mother and brother were there, indicating that this wasn't a favourable thing and it seemed like my mom may be coming round to the whole idea. I think seeing our determination with me having the surgery has helped her understand just how important this is to both of us. Perhaps this will change her stance on financial assistance. I'll deal with that when the time comes. I even mentioned to her that if our plans take a right turn, I'll be looking at other alternatives for donor eggs, like South Africa (could go meet Tertia :) ), and other overseas alternatives. Compared to the US, it wouldn't cost us much more than doing it here. But I digress, for now.

And yes, V. was correct. I did fire up the laptop. Not just to catch up on blogs, and blog, but to deal with some work stuff. It seems that they've decided to clean house again, and there were about 11 people let go yesterday. So, as the email administrator, I had to process the terminations and forwarding of their mail, because it seems my manager didn't do it. I think he may have denied them access to the server, but that doesn't take care of the forwarding of their mail to their manager, or giving that person access to the former user's existing mail. Anyway, spend about 4 hours doing that and so have emailed my manager advising him to only use 1/2 sick day for today.

Anyway, that's it for now as the phone rang and I lost my train of thought.

I'm off to catch up on some blogs and relax. Thank you for all your good wishes and prayers.

Oh and for the record, V. came up a little while ago to get me to stop working. Didn't work. ;)

I am glad to hear that you are doing well. I am still trying to get over the oral purgative - brutal! I really hope that everything works out with timing and your donor.

Thank you. :) I'm glad to be home. I'll admit I may have over done it yesterday as I was feeling pretty crappy last night, but all in all, I'm getting better. I am suffering from a weird side effect from the gas they pumped into my belly. Apparently, it rises up to your right shoulder and you feel pain there. Eventually it will go away as it's absorbed by my body, but it's definitely a dull ache for now. Thankfully all my pain is managable and not too extreme.
