I Got the Gon

The Gonal-F RFF Pen that is! I started the gonal shots on Friday evening. When DH and I were packing to head to my parents for the weekend, I said I packed the gonal. He got the giggles and started saying, "I hope we don't pass the gon around at Thanksgiving." He's such a nerd sometimes!

Anyways, so Friday night I gave myself the 10 units of Lupron. Then I took the Gonal-F pen and my laptop. I watched the video and did all the steps along with the video. I thought it was weird that I had to wipe the area I shot with gauze instead of an alcohol pad like the Lupron. It did bleed but I expected that since I was using gauze to wipe up...surprised I didn't bleed out chocolate pie! The Gonal-F RFF Pen...on 225 units right now:
All went well until the end of the shot. When I was screwing the lid back on the needle came out of the plastic and stuck me in the finger! Ow-chee-wawa!!! DH was in an intense ping pong game when it was shot time so when I was done, he came to check on me and I told him about the needle. Guess we'll have to watch that! You can see the needle sticking out here.

More bloodwork tomorrow morning and then we'll see where things go from there! Hope you all had a good Thanksgiving weekend!
