The Squeaky Wheel

I feel like it is so seldom that I get to post unequivocally good news, but I have some! Yesterday at 4:30pm (I was getting ready to leave work), I received a call from the pharmacy confirming the med order for our surrogate!!!!! I was shocked since I didn't expect anything to happen until tomorrow or Monday. Even better, the clinic wants her to receive the meds TODAY.

F, our surrogate, called me after I got home, and she told me that on Tuesday (after Husband had his little chat with the nurse coordinator), a nurse from the clinic called and wants her to come in ASAP for an u/s so she can start lupron. She's going in today and hopefully will have her first lupron shot tonight! I'm still stunned. I haven't heard from the clinic yet about my schedule, but I'm assuming this means that I might start stimming in about 2 weeks. Holy shit! Even if it's a little longer than two weeks, it won't be much longer.

And in true "me" fashion, I actually started to feel a little guilty about being assholes to the clinic. But no. They were jerking us around and there is no reason ever to feel guilty over standing up for yourself, especially when it's a service you've paid a lot of money for.

It's nice being the squeaky wheel for once :-)

That's great news! :) And you might feel guilty about it, but don't! Unfortunately, even though the costs at the clinics are sky-high you don't always get the service you expect for the money. And if you don't keep an eye on your own treatment and ask questions when you think questions should be asked things can get missed! Doctors and nurses are busy and sometimes you just have to say "hey wait!! but what about this?!" So the best bet is to be a nice, pleasant, friendly, squeaky wheel :) I'll start my good positive follicle growing thoughts for you - doesn't hurt to get a head start ;)

Yay! I never seem to be able to get anything accomplished with any medical personnel without an awful lot of squeaking.

Hellz yeah! The first injection of the cycle, whether for you or your surrogate, is always such a HUGE step forward! It's finally happening!
