Updates

We are headed out to Denver tomorrow for my post op appointment. I am scheduled for a diagnostic hysteroscopy so Dr. Schoolcraft can see if my uterine cavity looks any bigger now. 

While we are there, DH needs to give a sample which they will freeze as a backup sample for our IVF cycle. 

Also while we are there, we are meeting with the finance / insurance people in CCRM's business office. I am going to carry with me the benefits summary that my HR manager has sent me. If my HR manager can get any more information out to me today, I will take it all along as well. We just want to make sure that we talk everything out and know our options. We also need to know how much we will end up paying out of pocket if things don't fall in place with the insurance. 

After we are done with everything at CCRM, we plan to go to the hotel that we're booked at to see the size of the rooms, and to see what they provide in the kitchen etc. That way we can be prepared better when we go there at the end of this month. 

My goodie bag (IVF meds) will be shipped tomorrow, and I will receive it on Thursday. It's like a Christmas present for me - I'm that excited! :-)

It does finally seem like everything is getting set and put into place. My last IVF was in June 2008. I have been waiting 6 months to get started again. The last 6 months have been absolutely crazy! But the amazing part of the journey has been the knowledge we've gained. I know so much more now than I did even 6 months ago. And I definitely know SO much more than I did 6 years ago. Not just about the topic of infertility, but about life, about who we are as people, and about relationships. 

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for tomorrow. Will you guys do the same please?

Nikki, This is a very exciting time! I know what you mean about the meds being like a goodie bag... it's all a matter of perspective. Most people would not be quite as excited about a box full of syringes. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

That's so exciting!! I hope the trip goes well and that you have great results from your surgery. You should be proud of yourself for handling this insurance fiasco the way you have. I'll be keeping all my fingers and toes crossed that you won't have to pay out of pocket for this next round, and of course, that you get the ultimate result that you're looking for. Lots of luck to you!!

I am sending you TONS of luck your way and will be keeping you in my thoughts today. I'm anxious to hear about your sexy new uterus! (haha, yeah, I'm well aware that nothing is sexy in this business)

Nikki, the candle is on all day for you (and our other friend who was there at lunch on Sunday). I will be so thinking of you and imagining a nice, flexible, healthy, happy, open uterus, willing to accept and nourish one (or two?) happy inhabitant.
