More Drama

Stupid Thyroid.

I went to get a thyroid sonogram at the request of my new endocrinologist. I used to work in a radiology office when I was in college. I know that in a radiology office- they never get the doctor unless it's bad news. So the tech did the scan and said to me "Ok- I'm going to go get the doctor."
And then I was in a panic.

So turns out that I have 2 nodules on my thyroid. Of course I immediately consulted Dr. Google. And everything I'm reading says that I shouldn't panic and that 98% of these are totally not an issue and no big deal. (PS- When has Dr. Google ever given out good news?!?) And then I get a cryptic message from the nurse that says "We can't start the process" until I have my lab work completed. WTF does that mean??

One sleepless night and a call to the endo's nurse later- she tells me that I'm fine and they were just reminding me to get my labs done. Whaaaaaaaaat?? If you say so?

And now- more waiting.
Follow up is 3/11. Need my stupid tyroid to behave and be in the 3's!

Big Step

We have 100% secured our financing for IVF. I won't get into how we got it, but we have the money to pay for shared risk and our first round of meds.

A HUGE weight lifted off our shoulders. And a huge blessing.
