La Vida in Vitro, Part 2 - Follow-up ~ Friday, August 22, 2008
Update for the first day:
The young resident administering the ultrasounds (who looks startlingly like Jonathan Crombie, who played Gilbert Blythe in the Anne of Green Gables t.v. series starring Megan Follows) says that we've got a few "potentials" sitting about in my left ovary (the one they can see and will be working with). He's going to recommend maximum dosage to the doctor and discuss whether that's worth doing, given how little they've got to work with--and the fact that I'm a poor responder to boot. You go, Gilbert! Next time I see him, I'll have to ask him how Anne's teaching career is progressing. I expect he'd really love that--if he actually even knew what I was talking about.
U of T:
In the mean time, ALL the courses, in the faculties that interest me, are overenrolled. They've all got waiting lists. I'm #111 on one of those waiting lists--and can only sign up for a maximum of two. So--no classes, two waiting list rankings.
So far, it looks like IVF is in the lead! Wahoo! It also looks like my injections, at max dosage, will set us back about $360 per day (uninsured). Well, as they say, go big or go home.
