Today started off nerve racked. At 6:30 this morning after I completed my daily "StickFest," I realized I was looking at Tuesday instead of Wednesday. According to the calendar, I was to decrease my Lupron injection to 5 units today, which I was more than well aware of this morning, as I was more than well aware of it this time last night too. I guess I must've slept way too good last night and forgot what day to look at. Anyway, after a moment of panic, I calmed myself down and e-mailed my nurse at the clinic. Thankfully, she responded quickly and assured me I was not a lost cause and to just make sure I only do 5 units tomorrow. I've now marked thru each completed day on that calendar so I hopefully don't get confused anymore. I also asked my nurse, Titi (which is pronounced "Tee Tee!!!") about the Royal Jelly supplement I've been taking and whether or not to continue taking it. She said there is no proof that it increases egg quality. So, in an effort to stay completely on protocol, I'm not going to take it anymore. She also approved a celebratory beverage to ring in the new year if I so choose. Goodbye 2009, hello 2010! I've decided next year, I'm going to eliminate the word "thousand" when saying the year. Instead of saying, for instance, "Friday is January first, two thousand ten"; I will instead say "Friday is January first, TWENTY ten." Fewer syllables, and it sounds like a Sci-Fi movie.
Still no major side effects happening. Just hungry and unsatisfied with everything I eat. We went to eat at Papa Poblanos tonight. I usually barely touch the beans and rice. Tonight was another story. Once I finally put down my fork, K said "I think you've missed one bite of beans." I replied. Not with words, but by scooping up the last bite w/a chip. MMMM, it was good!
