Well, this Friday we have our referrals. Again. 🙂
We are going up to the Academic center for our urology referral to find out when the POW/MIA retrieval mission will happen. I think as far as that goes the limiting factors will just be time.
We need to time it based on :
- the urologists surgical schedule
- my husband’s work schedule
- our trip to Hawai’i
- my hopeful weight loss if we do a cycle at the same time
The urology dept. called to verify King.man’s insurance and to inform us that we are total self pay. Ugh. I hate that word. Makes me feel like I am to stupid to have the right insurance to cover infertility. The tab is starting. Perhaps I should make a sidebar underneath my timeline to keep track of it all.
Academic Urology Consult: $111. (Yes, really 111. Not 110 or 115..or even something even. 111)
MESA (if that is what UroGod decides how to liberate the troops): $3500 (including all anesthesia, OR room, etc. I think that is pretty good or an I delustional?)
I also have the Academic second RE consult tomorrow. I am lucky to LOVE my local RE, but they are just more expensive. To the tune of about $2500 a cycle. SO, that is why I am meeting with the Academic RE that is down the hall from UroGod. I figure if we can do it all in one place that is cheaper..maybe it will save money.
The Academic Center is hours from my house- and not a day trip either. I am blessed to have plenty of family and friends I could crash with up there if we cycle there. I have not made up my mind, and it may not even be an option. I do know that I spent about 20-30 minutes on the phone with the embryologist at the academic center last month and already love him.
I know I am still far off from actually doing anything- but it is nice to get to the next step. I have been following along long enough to see my bloggy friends through numerous cycles. Some good, some heartbreaking. Sometimes things go to fast, others to slow. I am glad that things are just GOING. I am blessed to be able to keep on going.
My back is doing better- I am in PT and it is going great. No exercising for 2 weeks. hum…in 3.5 we are going to Hawaii so I guess I am going to fat and sassy in Hawaii!! 🙂 Love it!
Wanna hear daily dose of Karma? At the fundraiser that I totally killed my back over I bid on a few things for a silent auction to get the prices up….you know to get bids going, etc. 🙂 I did very well, except on ONE THING. I was the opening and closing bid.
$100…tax deductible to the Ron.a.l.d M.c Don.ald House.
FOR……6 weeks for 4 days a week of BOOT CAMP. Yes….BOOT FREAKIN‘ CAMP. Are you effin‘ kidding me? Me!?!?! Who has lifting restrictions currently of 10 pounds by a doctor? No repetitive bending or stooping. No standing or sitting for longer than 60 minutes without 10 minutes of stretching?!? OMG.
Obviously the first thing I did was call and ask when it expires. I have to get my back healthy first!!! Considering I originally ‘tweaked’ my back working out doing Cleans, AND THEN finished it off slinging boxes and said fundraiser. The certificate expires 12/2009 so I have plenty of time.
The plus side is that this will help REALLY get me into shape. I mean 1 hour day- 4 days a week…for 6 effin weeks?!?!? Who wouldn’t get into shape. Second plus side? The package also came with a free one hour massage. 🙂 I am totally going to use that waaaaaaaayyyy before I do the boot camp.
