I was on one of the regular boards I visit this morning and found out that the CGH results are coming back really really fast for some people now. One woman had her eggs retrieved on February 13th so her day 6 report was on February 20th (about a week and a half before my day 6) and she got her results yesterday! She said this is probably exactly 3 weeks from the date the lab received them! But there's more! She said that right after her day 3 report, she found out about the problems with CGH so she was calling the embryology lab and her RE so she told them to hold back on sending the embies out and she thinks they may have - for almost a week! So, her results came back anywhere from 2 to 3 weeks from the day the lab received her biopsies. Cut to me. Here I am calmly going through life, knowing that I won't hear a THING for weeks still to come. I've been having a half a cup of coffee daily, a glass of wine at night, helping my mom move out of her house, babysitting her 3 dogs (add that to my 2 and we've got 5 - don't worry, I'll post funny pics soon), and just having a calm and grand old time. Now I am freaking out. Isn't that funny? The very idea that the phone call can come anytime between now and 5 weeks from now makes me beyond nervous.
The woman who just got her results didn't go through CCRM or SIRM but with an RE in Chicago who is starting to use CGH. She may have been their first patient - do you think that is why they rushed her results? Maybe b/c CCRM is a long standing client, their results will still take the usual 6 weeks? or have other patients been hearing about the CGH problems and so less clients have been using CGH and instead opting for the lab that does microarray so they have a faster turn around all of a sudden? What do you guys think? Eeek. Its funny - I'm actually usually a pretty calm person but you guys get the real crazy me on this blog.
Anyway, I'm going to pretend that I didn't learn that little tidbit (b/c we all know my cell phone will literally be ATTACHED to me for weeks to come). I'm going to go and take care of my zoo (my 2 boxers, an old man mixed schnauzer-poodle, a papillon, and a fat chihuahua), I'm going to run out to the store, do some yard work (it is going to hit 60 today!), and just be myself. And then later tonight, Brett and I are meeting some of his work friends at the Dino.saur BBQ for some great food and beer. Of course, I think it is insane to actually go out on St. Pat's day - I never do it- but we've been wanting to go out with this other couple for a while and today was the day they chose. I am so going to regret it. Oh well.
