Resistant Ovaries

I know it might seem shocking that any part of my being might be resistant or stubborn, but it is true. The doctor referred to my ovaries as resistant because he has pumped them full and they still are not giving him the results he wants. He was rather surprised. So, we are upping the dose to 225 in each shot, and instead of checking on me after three days, he is having me do the shots for five days and come back Tuesday morning. A few days ago, i cried while driving to work because i have such wonderful and caring friends. On the upped dose, i might just break into tears over the beautiful and magical snow that is being dumped on us as i type. Yeah, the drive wasn't fun this morning.

To use a half or whole sick day next Tuesday. That is the question. It is pool school day. Can i expose a sub to such madness? I will be cutting it kind of close because we leave early on pool school days and my appointment is an hour later than normal, but i am using so many sick days and my students are getting so many subs because of my appointments and curriculum work. Pool school days are absolutely exhausting and i don't get any planning time and TJ is taking the whole day. I can't, can i? Hummmmmm. . .

I think i will go finish my second reading of The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. I was really hopeful with this appointment, but i should have known that things just don't work out simply for me. There could be a line of problems once i finally do ovulate. We just never know, but God does.
