Unsolicited call from one of the RE's nurses today. That essentially never happens, so I was afraid something had gone wrong- but how could it when they haven't seen me, my blood, or my ovaries since giving me the all-clear on Monday? It turned out they wanted to share information. Critical information. Information that might have led to a completely useless cycle had they not decided to share it with me.
I was instructed to order the donor sperm TODAY. For delivery Monday. To the HOSPITAL. Now, they've emphasized again and again that DS needs to be shipped to me because they're not equipped to store it. Presumably, the hospital is equipped, while the satellite clinic is not. Good to know. Also, another nurse told me on Monday that I could have the DS shipped to the hospital, but only if it arrived within 24 hours of the ER. At this point (CD6 or Lupron day 15 for those keeping track), no one is willing even to guess when ER will happen. DS is good in the shipping tank for 5 days. So even though no one has seen me since I started stimming, and no one has any more information than they did on Monday, they suddenly know that ER will happen between Monday and Wednesday? And they still won't "predict" that ER will occur between Monday and Wednesday?
Then again, maybe the hospital has cryo-facilities so shelf-life in a portable tank isn't an issue.
Hopefully, someone will tell me tomorrow to expect ER to be some time between Monday and Wednesday. Otherwise, I will worry.
My other worry- no one gave me the hospital's address, and I forgot to ask for it until I was on the phone with the bank. I pulled it off the hospital's web site, but then called the RE's office to confirm I had the right address- left a voicemail, but no one called me back and they all leave at 3:30. Aaargghh! I was feeling so good, and so calm. Now I have new things to worry about.
