Halfway There

2 down... 2 to go...

Now yesterday I vented about my husband... well today I get to say nope he's a fabulous guy...

He told both my mother and my in laws of the impending d/c. He told them because my mom - has been there, done that. My in laws... wanted us to come to birthdays. The people that are at birthdays are the LAST people I want to spend time with. I would probably be popping vicodin and say a FEW things that shouldn't be said. D doesn't want to be around them either. So he told them as well of what we're doing this Friday. My mil asked a bunch of questions that D didn't know the answer to, and my fil just said - are you guys doing okay? Which D promptly replied - yes, we've got each other and we keep each other sane. He also took the liberty of arranging to have this Friday off rather than going to work. Though he would have left me in my mom's capable hands and truly I'm rather capable of taking care of myself... it is nice to occasionally be pampered.

Today also found me refilling my gonal-f... just in case new insurance doesn't cover it... old insurance blessedly does.

Now on to the real questions - do I need to get preauthorization for an in office d/c? I have no clue about these things...

So still no going away party - maybe they won't have one... Someone wants to do an exit interview.. I'd hate to have to tell her one of the reasons why I'm leaving was her, but that'd be the truth...

Now lets see... since I'm doing a flashbacks kind of thing.. would you like to hear of my experiences with versed or valium? How I do with any sort of narcotic, benzo? Boy do I have a story to tell you...

I'd err on the side of getting your insurance to ok the operation - you don't want to get there and find out they won't pay.

I'm glad your husband is stepping up. I would not want to have done the ERPC without him.

Oh I should clarify - D works nights as well... so he'd be there for that, but we'd have to drive 3 hours to the other side of the state afterwards. Not ideal. So we're going to stay at our home and then go the next day to spend the weekend with my mom and D can finish working for the city he's currently working for.

I hadn't realized you were having a D&C. Those are the worst - insult to injury, as you know.

Do tell about the drug stories. We can numb ourselves with laughter (and wine).

You are clearly very strong and capable of looking after yourself, but I am glad D is taking care of you.
I am so sorry you are having to go through this.

Okay, I give up - I have just spent about 10 minutes going through your old posts in an attempt to figure out if this is your last day at the old job. I think it is - 2 to go from Monday would make it today if you work consecutive days, right? (And to think that I actually have a degree in math.)
Anyway, assuming today is the last day - horaay! And I hope you were honest on your exit interview (not mean, just honest).
I also hope everything else is okay (I'm never quite sure how to refer to the whole MC issue).

Sorry, just me again - I found your wedding picture!!!! Maybe it's worthwhile going through old posts after all.
I love being able to put a face to a blog name - thank-you.
