(cross-posted)

Yesterday the office supervisor left me a message saying she couldn't schedule the donor for her initial appointment till after the Dr. and nurse coordinator came back from vacation in Sept. I took that to mean she couldn't even make the appointment, but either I misunderstood or she was mistaken, because today she called back and said the donor is scheduled for her consultation and bloodwork the third week of Sept. (I guess that's as specific as she can be). YAY! We also have our first payment due before then. BOO! So after that as long as she passes her screening it will be a matter of where she is in her cycle. I doubt we'll start before mid-Oct, but maybe if things line up well it'll be before then I hope, I hope!

Best wishes,

Thanks, Gabrielle...this first payment is pretty small, so at least they are easing us into it, HAHA!
