That’s right, ladies...I have a tentative date for ER. I mean, it’s only been almost a month since our match was completed (at lightning speed), right? I received an e-mail from my nurse this morning with a few details. She has consent forms to send me. I need to make an appointment with Dr. M. Retrieval is tentatively set for April 26 with transfer schedule for either 4/29 or 5/1. She needs to order my meds and would like to know where to get them from. Yay for progress! I made my appointment with Dr. M for 4/18. I was worried that something was wrong but this is just standard procedure so that made me feel better. She’ll order my meds from Freedom and they are usually very good so hopefully I’ll hear from them later today or tomorrow to set up delivery. I realize that things can change but it’s really comforting to know that we are finally moving forward.
The only bad thing is that the delestrogen injection is pretty expensive. You would think that after paying $29,000 (plus all the other money we spent over the years) that my medications would be included. Not so much. I have very good insurance and they have covered all of my meds to date. The most I’ve had to pay for any one medication is $15. I’m very lucky and I know that. But given the cost of these treatments I don’t understand why we still have to pay out of pocket for things. My insurance doesn’t cover delestrogen but should cover everything else like they have in the past. I don’t know how much it’s going to cost yet as the internet has listed several different strengths but they are all over $100. I don’t like it but will pay it, of course. I’m just thankful to have this opportunity, really.
So we are moving in the right direction. BJ and I were just talking last night about how we feel this process is dragging out. He actually said that they were just going to take our money and not do anything. He’s the pessimist around the house. When he calls me today I can fill him in and I’m sure he’ll wonder why it isn’t happening next week. *sigh* My husband, the poster child for impatience.
I was planning on posting something else today but it will have to wait since I used my free time to write this post. :-)
