Just a quick update to say that egg collection is definitely tomorrow. Monday's scan was looking good, and the consultants have a meeting in the afternoon to confirm when they will do the collection procedure, and agreed on Wednesday. I'm first on the list apparently, so will have a light brekkie before 7am, then nothing for 2 hours. We have to be there at 8.30am to start the procedure at 9am. It is all quite precise as you have to take an injection of HCG hormone exactly 34 hours before - get it wrong and you ovulate and the collection can't be done.
They give you a conscious sedation (woozy, given painkillers, but awake - gulp!) throughout, but I am expecting to be sleepy in the afternoon. Quite looking forward to an afternoon on the sofa...!
Work continuing as usual. Went to Frenchay campus today for a meeting and ended up being 20 minutes late as it took 40 minutes to get through the last junction. I could see the campus from the queue at the lights, but the traffic was crawling along. It's been bad before, but never known it that slow!! Most amusing bit of the meeting was when we were talking about the revised staff appraisal process which is now called the Performance and Development review - one person commented that people might think we were looking at whether they were doing their job! No! Really?!!! I was chuckling to myself. And when another person wasn't impressed the feedback they might give would not be anonymous, in case they get 'attacked' about what they have said. Methinks that person needs to learn how to give feedback constructively!!
G and I are both a bit anxious about tomorrow, and I am feeling on and off sick (usually immediately after eating something), so our response to that is to order a curry!!! Best go and place that phone call..... Will update tomorrow (about the hospital stuff, not the curry! lol) xxx
