I Should B Insured

So, I realize I just posted something, but that was mostly about my sister. Plus, I am trying to keep busy to stay awake.

I am currently on day 20 of my new full-time position at work. The first day of the month after my 90 days I will have medical insurance !!!

No, you did not read that incorrectly.


whoop, whoop

I am just a little excited about it.

My main concern and focus will be to get checked out for uterian cancer or really any cancer. My mother had uterian cancer at 33 which resulted in a hysterectomy. My sister is 36 and it all just happened to her. Both of my grandmothers had breast cancer. I am currenlty 32.

Let's just say the odds are NOT in my favor, no even a little.

If all should come back okay (please God) then we will be pursuing this crazy TTC thing again. However, my insurance has an "exclusion" section and of course infertility is listed. It is actually worded in an extremely tricky way. I posted it to my support groups and every interpretation of it was different. I will have to visit the benefits specialist to truely get an understanding of it.

Oh, and I bet you are thinking to yourself, "wait, why is she so excited about medical insurance?"
The answer is tha,t I have not had insurance in 4 years. While in college I was able to use the school clinic and that is where I was able to get TTC help but it was super limited. It did not offer me access to "The Big Guns" a.k.a. an RE. I am excited about the prospect but afraid of the cost and what they will say. I'll worry about that when the time comes.

June 1st is when it will be active. That is 99 days away....

Be good Bloggie World and have a fantastic day.

I Should B Asleep

As the title states I should be asleep. Not because it is 0355 in the morning but because I'm so exhausted I am struggling to keep upright. Being that I am at work it is extremely difficult to perform the task needed for me.


I bet you are curious as to why I am so tired.

Care to take a guess?

FYI. It is not because of anything fun or IF related.

Give up?

ok, I'll tell you.

It is my sister. She was back in the ER yesterday and I was with her every step of the way. for the last 2 weeks she has had difficulty walking and eating. It got prgressively worse and she finally told me about it yesterday. She said she didn't tell me earlier because she didn't want me to worry or miss any work. Well I took her imediately to the ER where they did more tests than I can remember.

The verdict?

A complication from her surgery at the end of December.

First of all she had an infection just after the surgery that was just gross ( I am sparing you the details. You're welcome). It took two rounds of heavy antibiotic to clear up. we thought she was past it.

Guess not...

So turns out she had a swollen spleen and GI. Apparently it is something that "can" occur in women that have heserectomys. My poor sister just can't seem to get a break.

Luckily she is slowly on the mend but this along with the infection will set back her recovery even further. She is still not cleared from the doctor and supposed to be on bed rest.

Being that she is stubborn and getting cabin fever she keeps pushing herself adn gosh darn her she WILL NOT LISTEN and stay the heck in bed!

So, that is what is going on. I have been awake for so many hours and running on 2 hours of sleep before that. Lucky me I "get" to work a double tomorrow/today to make up for my missed shift last night.

Have a good day Bloggie world and for goodness sake get some sleep :-)
