I haven't posted for a while. I've been really busy in work and only
fit to lie on the sofa with a hot water bottle when I come home.
Anyway, I'm heading to Dr Korell in Germany at the beginning of November
(I'm still waiting a definite date). It's going to cost us a fortune
and I hope to God it will be worth it. Mary (Pomroy) has been lifting
my spirits and calming my fears) Mary has to go back to Germany at the
beginning of November and I'm hoping we both might be there together.
I've to take a low dose cortiscosteroid before the surgery so Mary will
probably see a big balloon bouncing along the hospital corridor!
I really do hope I'm doing the right thing. We are going to get a bank
loan (we're estimating, that's my husband and I, that it's going to cost
about £3,500) I just hate the thought of getting the loan, having the
surgery, the surgery not going very well and us paying for it for the
next year. I know I should probably wait until we save the money but
our problem is we had IVF treatment in July 1996. We have fourteen
embryos but they can't be implanted because of the pain and pain-killers
I am taking. The embryos can only be frozen for five years so I have
until July next year.
Please forgive me for babbling I just wanted a chat. I was looking for
you all over the week-end too and there was no-one here. I think you
were all out partying and it wasn't a clitch in the system at all!!!!!
You know, I have in my head that I'm going to go to Dr Korell he will
"fix" me completely and I won't have any pain at all. I can't get it
into my head that he might only be able to help me a little bit. How do
I prepare myself for that? I want someone to stop the pain and god bless
poor Dr Korell for the hope I have put on him.
Goodnight and hugs to all my special friends.
