You Have To Be Kidding Me

I don't ever remember life being this complicated?  My entire 4 years of college suddenly seem easier than acquiring IVF meds.  Now I need to have my doctorate and pharmacological degree to figure all this out and deal with the "professionals".
Here is the story:  After my last appointment I was told the pharmacy would be calling...they never did.  So I called.  Like I had mentioned my protocal had changed at the last minute so that my trigger shot to help me ovulate would be lupron NOT Ovidrel.  The first thing I told her was that I didn't need the Ovidrel if it was even on the perscription.  She said are you sure????...Then I doubted myself and called the clinic and left a message.  The clinic called back to confirm...NO Ovidrel and they sent an updated prescription.  So I called the pharmacy and she immediately said...Got the new prescription we are all set.  Problem solved???  Yea right!!
Obviously you need to sign when FedEx delivers over $3,100 worth of meds so I worked from home Friday morning to get the delivery.  It is almost noon and nothing...11:45 I get an email..."Sorry we missed you..."  WTF!!! No knock? No doorbell?  Did this guy sneak up to the door.  Ugh so I callex FedEx.  The meds could be delivered now after 4:00.  Ok off to work and now we have to be past all these screw ups right?  Nope.
I get home from work, the FedEx man shows up...I give him a glare (which he didn't notice).  I open up my meds. like it is Christmas morning (yea right) and what is the first thing I pull out? The mother f#%&%# Ovidrel!?!?
You have got to be kidding me.  So it is 4:30 on a Friday afternoon and I have to call the pharmacy and after a short nasty conversation run to the post office to send back the f@#%% Ovidrel.  So that was my day.  How was yours?

Hang in there Julie! Pharmacies are the worst at getting things right, I really hope the rest of the process goes smoothly. <3
