Earlier today, I was having a good day. I got a solid smiley on my CB Advanced Ovulation test thing. I called, sure I was on hold for over 20 minutes, but, maybe they had a lot going on that day?
I got a lot done at work and was working late, to preemptively make up for coming in late tomorrow…
Then I got this in the mail a little after 5.
So, the bank received my returned vials.
Cue heart stopping. I didn’t check to make sure the lab tech emptied the canister, I mean, she was diligent enough to actually reseal it with the enclosed tie, so of course she’s competent enough to unload the vials too, right? I mean, she’s got a degree so she couldn’t have been that stupid right?
A very hurried call to NW later (thankfully all my coworkers had left by that point). Only one vial had been shipped back.
Still. I have to say to P*** N*******
Wish me luck at getting in a new place.
The only silver lining is that they did manage to unpack one of the vials.
I’m going to get an IUI there tomorrow, it’s already scheduled, and they have one vial, so there’s not much else I can do with it. But after that, I really feel like I can’t count on them and am annoyed about having to pay a storage fee at the bank (it’s not the bank’s fault), and having to pay for effing shipping AGAIN on the vial. And they let me know that they can’t promise me anything about the vial anymore. So it could be totally dead. And Ginger Jesus only has IVF vials left. So basically, worst case, I’m out a lot of money and our first choice donor. Best case, I get to spend $250 on storage and re-shipping it.
So much for this being the cheap option anymore.
Next year, we’ll be at a new place. Maybe end up having to have a new donor. Hopefully things will go better there.
