You're FIRED!!!

It's been a few weeks now, but we finally bit hte bullet and fired our doctor. It was a long coming decision with all the things that kept happening with each cycle. The last straw was when I was a few minutes late for a specific cycle day US, (by a few minutes, I mean 5 or 10) and I was told I would have to reschedule because they schedule their ultrasounds every 15 minutes the whole day and have no leeway for anything different. Rescheduling would have meant being put back yet another month. I was at my wits end. I think Jason and I both new it was only a matter of time anyway. We both never really felt like that was the place we were going to get the help we need. This whole process can be so incredibly daunting and lonely, it was hard to finally make the leap and find a new doc, even though, in our heart of hearts, we probably knew from day one.

Out of all this was born the need to delve in and find out who I should make an appointment with, so I started doing some research. I asked around and I searched online and read several different MD profiles and qualifications. After a few days, I started making some calls and came up with an office in Ann Arbor that just so happened to take our insurance. **BONUS** I was able to make an appointment and got in just a few weeks. **BONUS #2**

We had our appointment last Friday and I'm happy to report, it went extrememly well. I felt comfortbale from the first phone call all the way through the appointment. Everyone was professional and kind. The doctor was, without a doubt, the best doctor I have ever seen. Extremely thourough and encouraging. Very knowledgable. I can't say enough good things about him or anyone else I have dealt with in the office. It was so refreshing and relieving to have them truly seem like they care about what we are going through.

For the first time in several months, I actually feel hopeful again. It is nice to have a little of that restored, even if we do have a long road ahead of us.

Well I know it was a big leap but I'm glad you switched! I've heard nothing but great things about your new doc and I find his cutsie comment that you will be "a boring case" for their office reassuring. Hugs, sweet sister!

Hi - I'm new to your blog, but I read your sister's blog...I actually met up with Melba and Charlie in Ann Arbor over the summer, too.

I'm sorry that you are dealing with infertility; we did, too, and it's not easy. I'm glad to hear that you switched doctors -- that really makes such a huge difference. Sounds like you'll be in much better hands now -- good luck! :)

As always, thanks for the support, Melba. And Wendy, thank you for reading my blog. It definitely isn't an easy road, but it is nice to have people that understand and can relate. With my sisters story, your story and other similar stories, it brings hope and possibility, even through the difficult path infertility creates.
