The doctor was super nice. He asked us how many children we had together (3), the age of our youngest (13), our ages (38 and 36) and how many years we had been together as a couple (21.) Then he burst out laughing and asked us why we wanted more children when we had teenagers together: "You have three teenagers and you aren't crazy yet?" LOL...we get this a lot. Then he examined Mr. R...apparently you can feel when directly palpating the scrotum, where the vasectomy incision is. It had never occurred to me to try and find it. On one side, there is a centimeter between the two parts of the vas deferens, and on the other, only 1/2 of a centimeter. Doctor said Mr. R was an excellent candidate. We, as a couple, only have a 50/50 chance due to our age (mostly mine, actually) and the amount of years since the initial vasectomy, which was 13 years ago. By the way, do you know what's weird? Watching a total stranger, who happens to be a man, touching your husband's private parts. I had to turn around. It was too weird for me. We are scheduled for the vasectomy reversal on June 12, 2012. However, we are on the waiting list to go earlier, but not before January. We still need $4000 to pay for this. I should be getting around $2000 on Dec. 31 when I get my end of the year pay out. That gives me a few months to put cash away, in case they call us before June 12. Plus, Mr. R's mom will have to come to the house to watch the kids (Mr. R is not interested in having the kids around while he's recovering from scrotal surgery...cannot blame him one bit.) Plus hotel room for another three days in Tampa. At this point, I am thinking we need right around $5000 more to make it all happen. Ai yi yi.
Well, we did other things besides seeing scrotum doctors. (I like the word scrotum...it's funny to me. lol) We went to Clearwater Beach!
