I had to call the Wizard's office to let them know that my period started. They called me back this afternoon. Apparently the Wizard's regular nurse was out, and they had another nurse returning the phone calls. The Wizard was with the nurse when she called me. Apparently the cycle is going well so far. I am on schedule with my meds, and so far, everything looks good. I am really surprised at how well things have gone so far. So far, so good seems to be the theme. It sort of scares me that things have gone so well. My baseline is Thursday, so we will see what happens. The Wizard is going to proceed as if everything is fine. I keep going with lu.pron, and start folli.stim on Saturday. I do have a few questions, so I probably ought to call and ask them soon.
I told Hubby about my conversation with the substitute nurse. How the Wizard was right there asking questions and telling me what he said. He finally did get talk to me at the end of the conversation. I have been the interpreting nurse before, so I understand what she is going through. It happens often in the OR when the surgeon is scrubbed in. Hubby apparently has had secretaries return calls while he is there. Not sure why. We both had a chuckle about the experience.

In other news...
  • I am going to the grandparents for Easter. This is likely the last Easter we may have my grandfather around. My grandmother wants my grandfather to be able to get a picture with the family dogs. This may be the best chance to get it.
  • I really need to get the dogs bathed before we leave for the grandparents. I need to call for an appointment. Hopefully I can get them groomed on Saturday.
  • I finally got in to learn to scrub eyes. I played with a retinal surgeon today, and he said I did really well. I had a great day, and I got to leave early. Good times all round.
  • Hubby wants to go on record as doing all the work with the tomatoes. So here it is: Hubby did all the the work with the tomatoes. He put the containers together, he planted them in the pots, he waters them, and he is taking care of them. They look pretty happy, despite the chill in the air, of late. We chose several different heirloom varieties, which hopefully will work out for us. I know I need to post some pictures. (I am slacking in the photo department.)
That is about all that is going on. I guess that is enough.

I can't believe it's warm enough where you are to put in tomato plants! I've got a good month yet. So unfair! Glad your cycle is going well so far, and hoping it continues that way.

I hope you have a nice Easter with your grandparents.

Scrubbing eyes? Is that really what is sounds like?

Sounds like things are looking up! AND tomatoes! That's great.

Something new for the resume..."accomplished eye scrubber". LOL Did Hubby have supervision while constructing the tomato repository?

Thank you for your very reasonable clarification re. the tomatoes. I look forward to reading more about them in the future.
