    Thank you everyone for your kind words and sharing your experiences. No, they are not monitoring me every other day. I spent 3 days/2 nights in the hospital, and have a followup appointment next Thursday. My HCG levels had actually risen (from about 503 to 550) in those 3 days AFTER the methotrexate.
