No Time for Work

So, John Dear and I had our big consultation with Urologist #2. At least this time, the doc did a physical exam. But, the answers turn out basically the same. Either, John Dear has a "normal" SA done at Giant Fertility Clinic, they do a biopsy (pushing us into IVF) or they zap him. Will have to discuss these answers with our RE. I guess we'll try to have an SA done at GFC, either there or bringing in from home, with hopes to freeze.

Uro2 also referred us to a neurologist to see if there are any spinal cord issues causing JD's problems.

I wish this were all simpler.

On The Boy front, The Boy is still in a lot of pain and SIL recommended that we bring him in this afternoon to get evaluated by the Pet Physical Therapist. Yeah, that job actually exists. So, PPT will tell us whether The Boy needs surgery or is just having normal arthritis. Either way, SIL would like The Boy to be on some muscle relaxants right now.

I'm sorry. I wish it were easier for you too.

I hope The Boy feels better. Get him some of those beef flavored pain killers. My dogs love those.

So sorry to hear that things are difficult right now. It would all be so much easier if things weren't so complicated. Sometimes in this journey I just want to be a kid again - not to have to make difficult, complex decisions, and just be able to rely on somebody who loves me to tell me what to do all the time. Hope things get better for you soon.

And your poor Boy! Hope the anti-inflammatories work really well for him - my neighbour's dog was completely transformed when he started taking them.

Hugs! My dh had so many urology appointments.... and still they are not done. Even though we stopped all fertility treatments years ago. He ended up with scar tissue (they think!) and is having surgery next week :(
