Good news and bad news
I talked to the billing lady at PPVI and got the cost for the various procedures. Dr. Hilgers and the hospital are in network, so we only have 20% to pay. I don't know the hospital cost, but I'm guessing a minimum total cost with all procedures/labs it will be at least $17,000. That means we have at least $4,000 to pay out of pocket. However, I'm not sure if we are going to be able to ever afford to actually do anything, since we aren't going to go into debt again to do it. D has basketball tonight, and of course he wouldn't give me a time frame other than 10 years (which I think is a joke...maybe). If he wasn't joking, then we are totally screwed. I'm actually thinking that it's going to be around fall 2011 (around my 31st birthday) based on looking at our finances. That means that I can't replace my computer which is continuously saying that the hard drive is full is, runs pretty slowly, and the case is physically broken. I don't know if we are ever going to be able to afford adoption either if we can't have biological children.
I am 8 DPO/Peak+7 and I've had some spotting/bleeding so there's a 99% chance that I'm already out for this cycle. I might be able to do the hormone series, which is supposedly covered under my insurance at 100%, the next cycle or the one after but I'll believe it when I see it. There's a good chance that I have almost 3 more years of this crap to deal with. I think I need to get a weekend job. The problem is finding one where I could work 8 hours on Saturday and Sunday, plus be able to go to church. I'm really in a freak out mode right now. I need to pray about this when I do my evening prayer tonight.
D is talking to me again since Sunday.
