Day 14

Ugh! I am very uncomfortable at this point. My lower abdomen is really tender, and so is my injection site from last night. With the discomfort I'm a bit on the grumpy side this evening. I'm going to have to make an effort to be nice to Michael. LOL!

This morning's appointment included a quick blood draw - the nurse really stuck me hard, and now I have a big bruise in the crook of my arm. I don't know where they are going to put an IV in the morning...

After that, we got the rundown on everything else that we have to do this week, and the nurse showed my mom and Michael how to do the PIO shots.

We have to be at the surgery center at 5:30 tomorrow morning. Then I'll have the day to rest and recuperate. I promise to post tomorrow with all the information about the retrieval.

Thanks again for your prayers and good wishes.

I have a very 'full' feeling. I couldn't hold my stomach in, if I tried. The pain meds will be our friend, tomorrow. :)

Can't wait to hear how your retrieval goes...praying for you, girl!!

Sorry you are so uncomfortable. I remember sitting was the worst! Have a heating pad ready for tomorrow afternoon. Once the meds from the retrieval wear off, you might be a bit sore. I used tylenol and a heating pad to ward off any extra discomfort.
I will be thinking about you tomorrow morning and praying all goes smoothly.

My dearest J...just caught up with all this though I had got bits and bobs from Facebook! I have been a crumby supporter, cheerleader, blogger and friend and I am ashamed of myself. My dearest one, I am hoping and praying for this to work out for you and M. I have been wrapped up in my own little body and the adventure I am on.....
Fingers, legs and all stuff crossed....
