Three things for this post...all which will happen "in their own divine time," as Hubby reminded me yesterday.
Issue number one...Hubby and I talked a bit about yesterday's issue. I sincerely thank each of you that offered your thoughts and thought processes. We left things in the "think on it" category. Exactly where I expected them to be, and exactly where they should be for where we are in the process. I should also add that after our conversation tonight we're leaning a bit more toward a few IUIs and then perhaps the next IVF clinical trial sometime after first quarter 2010. But, when the RE shares with us the percentages of successful IUI, I may change my mind on this...again. In time all of that will be clear, I trust,
Issue number two...I'm fuming about the fact that we're still waiting on the morphology results from last Saturday's SA. Perhaps we've just been spoiled by the uro who could get us results, all of them-- including morphology, in an hour or two. But, seven days later seems more than excessive...and unacceptable. We've called a few times; they just haven't gotten to it yet. I guess it comes down to this: If they're going to take seven days to tell us it's another 0% normal, I will be even more PO'd. However, if the results are better, they can take all the time they need to count the little guys.
---------------------------------------------Finally, issue number three...This is the one that Hubby actually said "all its own divine time." Ironically, it has absolutely nothing to do with TTC. Though he didn't say it, I do think he thought it was a message that wouldn't hurt to be applied to more than just one aspect of our current lives. It's a message I can often stand to be reminded of. Patience is not my forte.
Anyway, back to the issue at hand...On Thursday, my manager was called into a meeting with our director, the two other directors from our department and the VP to discuss "changes, all good changes, coming to the department." I just had a hunch this was going to have something to do with me. Sure enough, on Friday I came into work to find a meeting request for Monday with the same group (manager, three directors and the VP) to discuss "exciting updates" coming our way.
My department is sort of in the midst of a reorganization and I've been openly pulling for cross utilization of my role since the beginning. I suspect this meeting has something to do with that. It's almost certainly a positive thing for me. I'm expecting anything from a promotion to a title increase to a job diversification without promotion or title increase. Any of them would be a step in the right direction (though I'd prefer either of the former to the latter). My biggest concern, though, is it may include a change in managers, which is something I'll be pretty disappointed about. My manager and I have a great working relationship; I don't want to give that up just yet.
So, just to prove to you all what a worrier I am...here I sit on Saturday morning worried about undoubtedly good news I'm (hopefully) going to receive around lunch time on Monday. Such a silly girl! This is about the time Hubby said that whatever the change is, it will be positive, and though my path may not be the one I expected, it will all happen "in its own divine time." Since we did he get to be so philosophical, you ask? It was something his grandma used to remind him. Wise hubby; Wise grandma!
