need serious t&ps

Well, we all know how stuff goes for me...things seem to be going well and then BAM! bad news...never fails.

We are supposed to be hit with a pretty bad winter storm Sunday night/Monday morning...lots of snow and freezing rain. And us southerners do not do snow and ice. We just don't. Even so much as a threat of bad weather and stuff closes. The news is predicting a complete closure of interstates, fallen trees, massive power outages, the whole 9 yards. And I'm freaking out. What if my clinic is closed on Monday? That would be very, very bad. Or worse yet, what if my clinic in Montgomery is open but the medical courier can't get my blood sample from Montgomery to Birmingham to be processed? OMG. I'm really, really freaking out.

I talked to my IVF nurse and she said that in her 8 years at the clinic they've never closed. They've been open through hurricanes. But the south handles hurricanes better than snow and ice. She said that if they do close they will just put a message on their phone line Monday morning. She said she *thinks* I'll be ok to wait until Tuesday to go in if need be but, of course, that isn't ideal. I asked about going in on Sunday but she said I wouldn't be ready yet so it would essentially be a wasted trip because I'd still have to go back Monday (if open) or Tuesday.

So, I'm begging you. If you have any thoughts or prayers to spare, I need them. If this cycle is ruined because of this damn snow, I'm going to need to be committed I swear.

I knew there was always a reason that I've HATED winter more than any person I've ever know.

  1. I know this isn't ideal, but could you drive up the night before and stay in a hotel? That way you would already be there and wouldn't have to drive in the bad weather so far.

    Praying things are ok! Send the winter weather to me in Michigan, God!
