One week from today at 1:20 pm Mountain Time we will be at the RE’s office for our very first appointment. One week. I can’t believe the it is finally so close. I know we could still have a long road ahead of us, but this is a door opening. We won’t get all the answers next Tuesday, I know, but it’s the beginning of what will hopefully be a very good thing. I hope the doctor re-affirms that we should be there and it’s not just because I’m being overly neurotic (for J’s sake – I need him to know that it’s not too early for us to be pursuing this and I think it would help if it came from a third party).
From everything I have read and heard about our RE, he’s very good. His name is Dr. Jason Min and he has the highest rating (4.8/5) of any RE in Calgary on ratemymd.com (I know that my doctor parents would cringe because they hate Rate My MD, even though they aren’t even on it) and a friend’s RE in Ottawa previously worked with him and said I should request him. We just so happened to get assigned to his caseload, so it was a lucky chance. Dr. Min reportedly has a great, thorough bedside manner and one of his specialties is quality assurance in ART. So I am sure that he will only recommend what he thinks truly has a good shot of working rather than just throwing a dart and hoping it sticks. I really hope that our session leaves me feeling confident going forward.
