So as it’s getting closer to the end, the little, or not so little things are starting to bother me. Tomorrow is an Irish bank holiday, which means most businesses are closed, but I have a monitoring appointment.
1. I only have one box of Luveris left and it will be used tonight. What if I need another day or two of Luveris? I don’t think any pharmacies are open tomorrow. Grrr
2. I made the mistake of reading a couple of the Irish infertility message boards and there are several comments about my clinic and the doctors people prefer. Everyone has a different personality and finds the best fit, no big deal. However, the more I read, the more it sounds like the RE that people initially consult with isn’t necessarily the RE that does egg retrieval or embryo transfer. WHAT? So yes, I’m having a minor freak out today and will likely have a list of questions for the RE doing my scan tomorrow. I hate being “that” patient, but I really want to know what the plan is. I put a lot of time and thought into choosing the doctor we initially consulted with and that is whom I would like to work with. ::bites nails::
3. Tomorrow of all days is the Dublin Marathon. Not a problem right, I’m not running in it. Oh, but there is a problem. Not only is the marathon path down the main street in our neighborhood, separating the main road to our gated community from the side of the street that we need to be on to get to my monitoring appointment across town, but the more research we do, the more it appears we really are trapped tomorrow. We’re still trying to figure out what to do about this. Cross the street, walk a few blocks, and call a taxi? Park at a friend’s house in another neighborhood?
After closer inspection the marathon route actually has our entire neighborhood surrounded, like a prison. Several panicked phone calls to local friends later, we are being informed to take buses, trains, taxis, anything but trying to drive ourselves. Ack
If I can figure out how to add a map of the marathon route, I will. I have a feeling that a good portion of Dublin is going to be standing still due to the traffic nightmare that will occur tomorrow.
