Belated Update

I got a call last week that my beloved grandmother was in a hospice and wasn’t doing well.  So I flew back to the Midwest to see her (more on this later). But I was able to keep my appointment with Dr. Ambitious.

His take on the last cycle was that it was another chemical pregnancy (I think that makes 5 or 6 now).  We talked about testing for “killer cells”.  As we only have until the end of January and no real financial resources to work with, he was going to try to get the lab to do it for my co-pay.  I’m still waiting to hear on the status of that.

We talked about the possibility of getting a December cycle in, as their offices are closed the entire week of Christmas.  Of course, my first day back home, my period started, which would have put my IUI right in the middle of it, so that’s now a mute point.  We now wait for January and our truly final last ditch effort.

Not much else to report on the fertility front.  More on life in general later, once I’ve caught up with work and caught my breath in general.



  1. I am so sorry to hear about your grandmother. I hope you’re taking care of yourself.

    I’m impressed by your doctor — he certainly seems on board with following the clues to try to discover what’s going on.

    I think I’m in the middle of a clinic-closure issue too — trying to get my bloodwork done to get approved for our shared risk b.s. — but it occurs to me that like your clinic, my cycle will begin while they’re closed.


    I hope you’re settling back to work and finding some equilibrilum,
