14 shots done as of this morning!

Vials, Powders and Needles - Oh My!
We started our stimulation med's on Saturday morning so as of now I am on 4 shots a day. Two in the morning and two in the evening. The mixing of one of the med's is a bit tricky as it comes in powder form, so you have to mix it and change needles. Roon has been AMAZING! He has taken on all duties of the shot giver. This has helped - because I tend to be overly obsessive about making sure everything is done exactly to the letter and he has taken some of that stress off of me. He makes sure everything is done right and keeps the instruction sheet's handy just in case he needs reference. The lupron shot is tiny - and it goes it my leg - so it really does not hurt. I only have one bruise from that. The other shots go in my stomach area on the outer sides of my belly button. Honestly - the mixing of one of these med's was more stressful than the shot itself. Sometimes I feel these med's sting a bit - but that is not that bad.
Thanks so much for your prayers! We appreciate everyone so much. I go to the Dr. Wednesday for more blood work and another sonogram - so I can see how everything is progressing and get my updated medication schedule!
