Lately I’ve been spending a lot of time near my old RE’s office. You know, the guy who after a year and a half of treatment including 4 IUIs, 1 IVF, 3 FETs, 1 miscarriage and 1 chemical pregnancy, basically fired me as his patient and told me to go on vacation and maybe I’d be “surprised.” I keep hoping I’ll run into him or some of his staff in the street. They’ll look at me with pity like they did the last time they saw me but this time the joke would be on them. I guess you could say I’m still holding on to some hard feelings.
I took a cute photo of the boys and turned it into a thank you card. I want to send one to my old RE so badly. Here’s what I’d say:
Dear RE #1,
I wanted to take a moment to thank you from the bottom of my heart for suggesting we part ways in late summer 2010. My husband and I took a few months off before deciding to try another IVF cycle with our new RE. We transferred two embryos in November of that year and those embryos turned into the two beautiful boys on the front of this card. Just thought you should know because I know how much you cared. Sorry for ruining your success statistics!
There, I feel better already. 🙂
