If there is a possibility that something can go wrong it will…that seems to always be the case when it comes to me and my infertility journey.
Last week my phone follow-up with Dr.Kwak-Kim was supposed to take place, but things didn’t go as planned. Three weeks ago my father invited me on a dive trip to the Galapagos Islands and I couldn’t resist. The only problem…..I would be in Ecuador when my appointment was supposed to take place. Originally I had tried to change the appointment, but they couldn’t get me another time slot until May and that was not going to cut it for me. I had to figure out a plan B, because I didn’t want to miss out on this trip. I knew that my phone wouldn’t have service as I don’t have an international plan on and I didn’t feel like going through the steps to get it working abroad. But, it would all be ok because another phone would work and I could use that number. So, I called the office and explained to them the situation and had them write down the number to call me on. The front office assistant assured me that the new number was in my file and I would be called on that number for the scheduled time.
Everything was planned and I was ready for the phone call.
But, nope. Things never work out as planned.
Turns out Dr. Kwak-Kim doesn’t look at the notes provided to her by the staff and she continually dialed my cell phone number that wasn’t turned on. I never received the call and by the time I waited around for the phone to ring and then tried to find internet to look up her number the office was closed. The phone consult was a no go. I was upset that there was a mix up but realized that I couldn’t dwell on it and would have to figure things out when I got back to the states.
Now I am back in the states and am still in limbo as I wait to get scheduled for the phone consult. Luckily, the office realizes it was their mistake as I had everything planned out and they are trying to squeeze me into a new time slot very soon.
I am frustrated that I have to wait a little bit longer to see what Dr.Kwak-Kim has to say, but I am also willing to wait as I wouldn’t have wanted to miss out on the amazing trip I took.
I’ll post more pictures of my trip once I get them organized.
