Ch, Ch, Ch, CHANGES!

Remember that little gem? You're welcome.

This marks the first week of my externship.


I knew I would like the medical aspect of it. But I honestly thought I would just have to grin and bare the 'dealing with the patients' part. Yes, I'm aware that sounds cold and heartless.  Bite me.

After dealing with only nonverbal, furry, just needed some love, patients I really thought I wouldn't be able to feel the draw and compassion to human patients as I did my animal ones. But I do. I really really do!

My geriatric patients make my day. They come out with the most ridiculous shit.

One lady told me that she hates kids because they are dumb and messy. HAHA! I mean who says that?! I laughed hysterically. They don't give a rat's ass what anyone thinks and they say whatever comes to mind.

Some are so sweet that I can barely contain myself from squeezing the life right out of them.

This experience gave me the reassurance that needed to move forward with nursing. I know now that it's what I'm meant to do.

On the IF front AF is here with what can only be described as a ho.ney bad.ger in my uterus.

Ho.ney bad.ger don't give a shit.

I forgot how painful the first AF is after a D&C. While blow drying my hair yesterday morning I had a cramp so intense that I may have lost consciousness. I don't understand how I could have built up a lining of epic proportions in such a short amount of time.

With CD1 came the lovely HSG which will be scheduled for Thursday afternoon. I'm not able to miss a day of my externship so I have to have it done during my lunch break. That will be the!!!


Once I get the all clear from the HSG results we'll be looking at our next FET cycle the second week of February. Just in time for my nimrod boss to change health insurance companies. He does this every single year and I have to force him to wait until I'm done my cycle. Talk about awkward. Although I have openly told him we are doing IVF he still says things like "I don't know the specifics but I know you need notice for health insurance changes." I always pull out my calendar and let him know the dates of upcoming treatments just to make him cringe. 

I'm a sadistic little troll, aren't I?

We're going to J's parents tonight to celebrate his Dad's birthday and watch Ti.m Te.bow get his ass handed to him by the one and only dynasty that is the New Engl.and Pat.riots. Ya, can you tell we're fans? Of course we'll also be watching the Bru.ins game.

I'm sure by now you've narrowed down where we live. You sneaky little devil you.


  1. You must have really enjoyed the game! I didn't watch, but was quite satisfied later when I saw the end score. I'm not a football fan, but I do like Tom Brady simply because he's from U-M (Go Blue!). Sorry about the Honey Badger and the HSG. That stuff is so un-fun.

  2. Oh my gosh, I have been missing out on your blog! This is so funny! But, I'm so sorry for what you've had to go through. I'm praying for you. Thinking of you often <3
    That crazy ass nasty honey badger! :-)
