Ugh, started off with a rough morning. I’d just given myself my progesterone injection, and was holding pressure on the site with one hand, and putting the PIO bottle back in its box with the other. Except somehow the bottle slipped out of my hand, and rolled off the counter, falling on the floor with a sickening crack. Glass and precious medication on the ground! Quickly cleaned it up, which meant I didn’t hold pressure on the injection site for very long, and by the time I looked again, there was blood all over my glute!
That was my last bottle of PIO, and I’d just started it yesterday. My own clinic’s pharmacy didn’t carry it, so I called the hospital pharmacy, and it took them a while, but they did find some. Placed an order myself, but couldn’t make it over there until after work and my desperately-needed yoga class – it’s been almost 2 weeks since I last did any sort of exercise! So by the time I checked in at the pharmacy it was 8:15. At 8:30 they called my name and said they didn’t have it – huh?! The tech said this morning’s tech must’ve put it somewhere she can’t find, but that I should sit down and the rest of my meds would be ready soon – which made no sense since that was the ONLY med I’d checked in for. She checked with another tech, who I could see holding the right box – the first tech said never mind! It’ll be ready soon. Half an hour later, I’ve seen at least a dozen other patients check in and pick up their meds! Go up again, am told will be just 2 more minutes. 9:10, and the pharmacist calls me up, with many questions – the dose is different from their standard (dunno what standard that is – 1 mL once a day seems pretty kosher for IVF), and was I sure I’d taken this medication already since I ordered it? Um YES, I explained the dropped bottle fiasco, and he finally seemed satisfied. So I finally picked up my bottle and got out of there an hour later.
I am so going to crash tonight – I have a 12-hour work day tomorrow! 😦
