Ya know how we were waiting to find out Toms new shift at work? He knew he would find out today, after being off the past 2 days. He called me on his break and shared the news. He got 7am-3pm shift, with FRIDAYS AND SATURDAYS off. Can you believe it?! There are two bad parts. One is that he will be in the psych division. Hello, worried wife. Two is our IVF schedule! There is a 50/50 chance our retrieval will be on the Thursday. That creates a BIG problem. Tom can not call into work sick..he will be fired. Hes on probation for the 1st year of employment. We have a few options..freezing sperm and using that, seeing if he can go in a few hours early to give his sample, finding someone to cover his shift for the first few hours, etc. I am going to call my nurse tomorrow and see what she thinks. I am really hoping we have retrieval on that Friday, anyway. It would mean no problems at work for Tom and less problems at work for me. The good outweighs the bad here. I mean, we will be a normal family again. Work at the same time..have dinner together..be able to go out Friday nights..have ALL DAY on Saturday to do family things. This summer went from good to better. Tom will be joining me for the 3 weddings, we can go to the cottage and use the boat, Daddy can come with us to the Dells in August, the list goes on and on. I was just saying how I was really upset about doing all of the IVF shots alone..now I don't have to. Ill take it as a "sign" that everything is going to work out just fine. :) I am so happy!
A cheerful giver
