I posted yesterday about my career stress. I was worried because my 2 best home health care clients are in the hospital, which cut down my hours to almost nothing. I’m happy to say that the office has assigned me some new clients starting next week!
It’s still not as many hours as I need, but it’s a start. I’m so glad they came through for me. They said they would work on getting me some more hours, too. Phew, that is a load off of me! I’m also looking into getting another position with a different home health care agency (basically doing the same work & flexible schedule), just so I have a back up plan and hours when needed. Plus, I still have my 2 days a week at Children’s Hospital, at least for awhile.
Yay! Crisis averted 🙂
TTC-wise, I started Femara last night! Woot! I’m getting so pumped about this cycle. I didn’t notice any side effects from my first dose, other than feeling warmer perhaps. I get hot flashes on all fertility drugs though, so it’s nothing I can’t handle. I don’t really expect to get any major side effects, at least not for a few days or more. I’ve managed pretty well with other fertility drugs, although it’s not the most fun thing in the world (to say the least). 🙂 But it will be worth it in the end.
Anytime I try something *new*, I start to feel those hopeful/optimistic feelings creep in, which is nice. It feels refreshing. Especially this cycle — we’re pulling out so many new things along with Lovenox. Right now, I have a really good feeling about this working. I don’t want to get my hopes up TOO high, but just high enough is okay. And I suppose if it doesn’t work, we can tweak a few things next time. I just feel like we’re getting closer to our take home baby. I hope that I’m right!
