What Else?

Today was one of those days where you just have to say WTF?

For starters it was an OPK positive day. Great news overall, except my donor is fishing in Alaska. Or at least he was....until his BFF called me this morning to say he was taking Mr. W to the ER. Huh???

Apparently Mr. W had some excruciating amount of pain and decided he needed to go. I can only imagine how bad it must have been if Mr. W allowed himself to be driven to the emergency room. (Doctors are the worst patients.) Meanwhile, I'm a total train wreck but BFF calls to say they saw him right away and that Mr. W diagnosed himself (on the way to the ER) with a kidney stone. Turns out, he was right! A CT scan confirmed he had a 3mm stone in his distal ureter. They gave him some painkillers, a band-aid, and shipped him back out to finish his fishing trip. He comes home tomorrow - salmon, halibut, and a kidney stone heavy. So begins the process of getting the damn thing passed. (BIL is a urologist and wants to surgically remove it when he gets back. thanks...if possible. We don't need to be doing any unnecessary tampering with what jewels we've got to work with.)

As for me...I haven't really updated the GI issue, because well, I really don't have a lot of info yet. I'm still waiting for test results, followed by more results. To make matters worse, Top Doc's clinic (RE opinion #2)requires a slew of tests that my local lab managed to fucq up. So I have to go back for a redraw (as does Mr. W) and a repeat of the missed labs. Ok fine. But of course that doesn't move me to the head of the class anytime soon. And well, time's a ticking for August. Ticking right on by...

Ya know, if we could both just get our sorry asses healthy, maybe we could have a freakin kid or two.


  1. Poor Mr. W! I understand that passing a kidney stone can be horribly painful, I'm wishing him the best. If he gets home tomorrow and is not in too much pain, will you still be in the window of your + OPK? I'm convinced that you will eventually get pregnant under unusual, makes-a-really-cool-story set of circumstances.

  2. Sorry to hear about Mr. W. That truly sucks and the poor man has to show up and PERFORM on top of that?!? What a trooper. Hoping that everything gets resolved quickly between the issues and you both are better very soon.

  3. Ugh. If it aint one thing, it's another... Hope he gets that stone passed as easily and painlessly as possible and I hope this doesn't mess up your schedule too much.

    Thinking of you.

  4. I hope he is feeling better. And that you were able to stay on schedule!
