Thank you all again for the sweet congratulations on the RESOLVE award nomination. Voting does not close until July 11, so please make sure you take time between now and then to read the entries and cast your ballot. There are some great books about infertility up for a Hope Award, as well.
We still don't have our crib. We ordered it several weeks ago online, and two weeks later, we were told the order was canceled after the company (I won't name them, to be nice) lost the order in transit. When I asked the customer service woman on the phone WHY they canceled it rather than simply sending us a new one, she asked, "Do you need it now because you're expecting a baby?"
The question caught me off guard. Not because I'm not expecting a baby in a traditional way. But because, well, what the hell else would you put in a crib? I wanted to reply, "No, I just want somewhere to put my husband when he misbehaves." But I didn't. I wasn't sure if she would get my sarcasm.
So, we still need to order a crib. Again. I think I'll be paying the extra money to order it from a store that actually plans on ensuring it arrives. I'd like it to be here by the time we finish the home study paperwork.
Speaking of paperwork, we are on our way. Much of the answers are coming easily, but some are more difficult to navigate. I'm happy to say that about half of the self study questions are complete.
Last, but not least, my MRI was this morning. I hate MRIs. I can do surgeries, blood draws, all kinds of other things just fine. But MRIs? Hell. No. Being stuck in a tiny little tube with absolutely nowhere to go freaks me out.
I CAN do it, though. I work myself up before I get in there, but once I am in there, I can usually talk myself down. I must have done a good job today because the MRI tech said she thought I fell asleep in there since I was so still. She of course couldn't give me any indication (tumor or no tumor). She did say that my doctor should receive the results within the next day or so. Hopefully this means I will hear from RE #3 this week.
Basically, we're waiting. We're always waiting.
