They were open, and we are proceeding with this cycle after all. I started the Dexamethasone today, and get to pump myself full of 150ius of FSH tonight. I go back in on Thursday for a monitoring appointment.
I am still in awe about how much nicer this new clinic is.
The doctor actually recognized me when I walked in, so did the nurse. They actually remembered my history, have looked at my charts, were talking about the blood work and about it not being in yet and trying to find out more. They're extremely helpful, eager to answer questions and to give me whatever I might need. It is amazing.
Even if this doesn't work out, I am still really glad I found this office. Just the personal touches, the bedside manner, being proactive and up on new research, well... it's enough of a difference for me.
I'm still not an optimist, but I feel a little better about things today.
