I've received an update this morning from the clinic. My time it's about 3 days past retrieval (give or take half a day as far as I can calculate. The status thus far is two-8 cells, one-5 and one-4. I did a cursory web check but actually developed an upset stomach. Weak as water am I!
Any ideas from those more experienced?
My transfer is set for Sunday at 9am so it sounds like the clinic expects at least something to make it.
I experienced my first travel bump today. I stayed last night in a midieval (yet surprisingly well touristed) city. I got there from Vienna by shuttle van and had a very nice room at a family-run pension. I was to be picked up by another shuttle company at 5pm to get to the city where the clinic is. The shuttle driver received wrong pick up info and left without me. An hour later they sent a driver (who was probably in the middle of dinner and sports on the tv from the looks of it) who drove like a maniac to the closest city with a train station. He gave me cash back for half of what I paid via PayPal (around $25). So I get to this town and the mean soup Nazi-ish woman at the ticket office says what I finally realize is that no more trains to the city I need to get to tonight. I then go across the street to the bus station. Same results. So now I'm standing there at 7:45pm in a strange bus station wondering what the heck to do. Thank goodness for my iPhone! I found a hotel with availability for about $45. I hopped in a cab and here I am. I emailed the hotel where I was supposed to be tonight and promised to pay for tonight when I arrive tomorrow. I also sent the shuttle company a disgruntled email and they said they would refund the other half of my fare via PayPal. I won't hold my breath though. Anyway, standing there in that Communistic era train station I felt rather alone and scared. I found some teenagers who spoke a little English and who helped me figure out how to get to the busses and how to read the schedules. I'm so glad now I allowed one "cushion" day before transfer. Just a minor bump and I think I'll forget it as soon as I leave tomorrow morning.
