After a bit of chaos, we’re off

Hello everyone.  If you follow the Instagram feed you already know this story.  If not, I’ll fill you in. We had a scare yesterday when we received a call telling us that the already arranged payment by S. and I would not be executed in one day because they can’t release such a large payment in one day. Bull (sorry for the language).  We know they can do so.  We went through this during our daughter’s adoption.

Our financial coordinator (officer) at the RE office told us if we didn’t have the final payment in today, we would have to cancel the cycle and wouldn’t be put back in until next year because that would be the next availability and when everything (body wise) would restart.  Sigh.  so of course I started to worry.  The post released earlier today (should have been last night, but I fell asleep) speaks to it. But S. told me not to worry and to continue as if everything was okay.  It would be.

I have to be honest.  I wasn’t so sure, but I prayed and told God that I wasn’t sure what would happen, but I would trust in His plan.  I meant it.  This morning, I woke up crack of dawn for my early morning appointment.

I left my house at 6:40 and that should have been more than enough time for my 7:15 appointment. But it was raining and in our area, people panic in precipitation.  So there were accidents.  Several accidents.  I didn’t get to my appointment until just about 0840.  Yeah.  I was so exhausted when I got there.

Fortunately, when I walked in, S. was on the phone with the front clerk.  She, he, and the company coordinator responsible for the execution of our funds were on the phone trying to get everything executed.  They [the finance company} gave the excuse of daily spending limits, but that was proved false by the large payment made on yesterday.  Long story short, a compromised was reached that allow us to pay and break no rules.  We get to go forward in treatment!  Yay!

I went in for my bloodwork and my ultrasound.  The technician and doctor said everything was gorgeous (her words). She then told me my nurse, A. would call me this afternoon with the confirmation that everything was good and the sub nurse handed me this:

My injection schedule..so far..

This afternoon, A. called and confirmed.  This Friday, barring any more issues, I take my first stims injections.  I am to take them between the hours of 6 and 10PM and must take them at the same time consistently from now on.  I’m thinking of 9:30.  Everyone is pretty settled and I will have time to do it without interruption (and if I need to re-psyche myself up).

So, that’s all for the moment.  Things will be pretty quiet for a few days.  I’m going to continue to work out and try and prep my body for what it’s about to undergo.  I feel like neither one of us (body nor I) are truly prepared.  BUT I’m so ready for the journey.

-K
