No more PIA or PIO

I talked with my nurse today. I'm going in tomorrow for my beta despite being sick. My doctor this morning said if the plague I have is the flu, I should be better by tomorrow, and if it's not, it's probably bacterial, and I'm now on antibiotics just in case, so I should be okay to breathe my germs on them by tomorrow.

That being said, my nurse gave me her blessing not to take my PIO tonight since my HPT is still snowy white. I told her she needn't worry about how to make that uncomfortable phone call tomorrow with the negative beta and she said, "Oh thank heavens!" Apparently those phone calls aren't easy to make, and occasionally get pretty dicey. She hopes to give me a pleasantly surprising phone call tomorrow, but meanwhile she said it was okay to skip the PIO tonight. Whahoo!

Meanwhile, there's nothing much interesting going on here in perky-land.

At least you can ditch the PIO.

Feel better, ok?

Nothing cheery to say, but feel better soon and glad your bottom is spared the PIO.

Send me an email if you get a sec- I hope you are doing okay.

I gotta say, I do feel a lot of sympathy with the folks who have to make those phone calls. Not as much as I do with those who have to get them, but still. Did you know there are some practices where the nurses make the 'bad' calls and the doctor makes the 'good' ones? Those doctors should be taken out and spanked.

Feel better soon!
