Today was our first consultation with Dr. Lee. We walked towards Zhongshan Road and took a bus to the next stop where Mackay Memorial Hospital is. We could actually just walk but we didn’t want to be late.
We arrived at Mackay Memorial Hospital in less than 10 minutes.
This was our first consultation for this cycle. I had my first TVS in Mackay. It was quite tricky to get a slot for ultrasound since there were many patients, so thankful that Annie was there to assist us the whole time.
I also had a mock embryo transfer or sounding, so that the doctor would know where to place the embryo. This was not done in the IVF clinic in Manila.
Waited for Dr. Lee to give me prescriptions. Settled our bill at the International Service Desk, but would get to injections the next day since they need to be stored in a cool place, and my injections wouldn’t start until then anyway.
We were done by around 10:30! We decided to walk back going home. We would always walk home from then on, since it only takes not more than 15 minutes. The only time we didn’t walk home was when there was a typhoon and we had to take a cab.
We ate at a vegetarian restaurant just one street away from the hospital. It was our first time to eat in a vegetarian buffet so we observed and asked how we go about ordering food.
After lunch, we walked around our neighborhood. It was a rainy afternoon so we had to buy an umbrella. We took our time to explore a nearby mini-department store called SL to buy household stuff that we needed.
In the evening, we met with our relatives for dinner. One of the best dinners ever in this small dumpling place! Love the potstickers and dumplings 八方雲集 or 8-ways Dumpling House. It is located in the same street where the night market is, just on the other side of the road.
Wow! We were very full. Ended the evening with milk tea 🙂
Lots of places to eat in our neighborhood! We really won’t go hungry here 🙂
