And what a weird start it was to. Got to the clinic this am, all prepared for my CD2 scan (lovely) and my progesterone and oestrogen blood tests.  All ready to leave carrying a carrier bag loaded with injecatbles. But typically, as with all things fertility, things did not pan out the way I anticipated.

I did not get to leave the clinic with a giant bag over flowing with injectables. Instead, I was asked to report back to the clinic tomorrow at 7am for the first of my Intralipid Infusions! :-0

See, when last Dr G and I’d discussed treatment for NKC, I was freaking relieved to hear that I wouldn’t require IVIg that I made the stupid assumption that the replacement treatment, Intralipids, which I was told is a soy protein, would be a pill. Ha! You know what they say about assumptions??? So I’ve had to do a mad dash scramble this am to contact our MD, let him know I won’t be in tomorrow morning and then contact some of my clients and reschedule all my meetings I had planned for tomorrow. Because tomorrow morning at 7am I shall be admitted to VL’s day ward for a 4 hour transfusion of Intralipids.

Lord, this all better be so worth it when its over and done.

    wow. Sounds big…but also sounds like something! I’m so glad your doc listened to you, took you seriously, and you are taking actions that may lead to a very positive result. Yeah, it might have helped to know ahead of time you’d need a day off for it…but hey, when it comes to IF, shit happens. I’m so excited and scared for you as you get started, but I’m cheering you all the way.

    Is it just one infusion, or multiple???

    Oh no! That’s not fun that you suddenly have to sit through a 4 hour infusion, and that you didn’t plan for it either!

    Will you only need one or will it be more often?

    I’m very glad though that your doctor is able to give you something that might help this round be a success!

    Hugs, prayers and thoughts!

    Ugh no that can’t have been a nice surprise – BUT I have to say your doc sounds awesome, I’m so great that he took you seriously and is following through on this!!

    Will be thinking of you and anxiously awaiting your report back in the pm!

    Good luck…

    OMW! Sounds quite hectic. To be honest I made the same assumption as you did. I’m sure everything will go according to plan and I really hope this will be all worth it my friend.

    Oh no, I would also have assumed it was pills. It sounded like it was.

    Shaz I am so hoping for your miracle this month. I think about and pray for you all the time.
