Is it just me...

....Or, do people just don't want to do their jobs anymore???

I went to Dr. McC's office for my "alleged" 5:00 pm appointment... I say "alleged" because, well, I have a feeling everyone can figure out what happened yesterday...
















Yep, they had no record of a scheduled appointment for me at 5:00 pm in their computer! So, after I left work early (skipping my lunch) to get there and sitting in the waiting room for 45 minutes, they finally call me to the window and say, "We don't have you in the schedule."

So, having just come off my PMS-bitch tyrade that I now get in the one to two weeks before I get my periods now, I told the girl at the window that 1) I didn't come here to wait for an appointment just because I had nothing better to do with my time, 2) I didn't skip my lunch and leave work at 3:30 pm because I was bored there and had no work to do and 3) she better find out if I can get in with the doc TODAY since I took the time to get there and the dope who made the appointment should have hit the ENTER key to schedule my appointment in the first place (like, duh! I had a confirmation card in my calendar!)!

All I can say is they are lucky this was not Tuesday or Wednesday, when I was slightly more homoc.idal than yesterday...

Anyways, I did finally get in to see Dr. McC - except it was 7:15 pm instead of the 5:00 pm scheduled time. I didn't leave the office until 7:45 pm = I was starving!

*** This is where Tina must remember if she doesn't get a confirming phone call for my next appointment on May 14th, then she had better call the office to confirm herself!!! ***

Anyways, I did obviously get in and we made some progress in the appointment yesterday...
  1. Dr. McC is going to re-run the full auto-immune blood panels, now that Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (auto-immune thyroid disease) is confirmed. He decided that since I now have a diagnosed auto-immune issue and my mom has several different auto-immune disorders, it would be best to re-run the panels. Sometimes, issues remain dormant until one is confirmed, and we don't want to get surprised later on if something develops and he didn't test for it.
  2. He agrees with Dr. S about the Hashimoto's and doesn't think I will lose any more weight from the Levoxyl. It should hold my weight where it is (141 pounds again).
  3. I told him about Dr. S' thought that my blood pressure last week was low (she measured it as 99/65). So, he checked it a few times and looking back in his records, it seems to hang around 104/66. He is not worried about that right now - it seems to be my normal, especially since losing 30 or so pounds.
  4. He is going to call Dr. D about how to handle my being on Lexapro and TTC again. Since June/July might be the target time for it, he is going to have me come back on May 14th to see if either I can start coming off it completely (average time to be on meds is six months, so I might be ready by then to come off it) or see if Dr. D would consider letting me switch to Zoloft, which should be safe to TTC on. Obviously, I need to be off Xanex completely...
So, now I have to wait for my thyroid u/s on April 10th, this next appointment with Dr. McC and repeat thyroid b/w in May and my follow-up endocrinologist appointment on July 2nd. Hopefully, all signs will be a GO for TTC in June/July - just gotta see if Dr. D will be closing his office for the July 4th holiday again this year (his office is usally closed for the week) so that we can time Provera, Clomid and IUI!

Keep your fingers crossed!
