I'll Just Keep Breathing

Last night's trigger shot went well. No dropped medicine vials, no catastrophe with the most important injection. No bleeding and it's just a little sore today.

Tomorrow morning we report to the doctor's office at 8:15. That means we will need to leave here no later than 6:45, maybe even earlier. I'm so worried about being held up in traffic.

I'm very excited about tomorrow, but a little nervous as well. I'm glad I won't be awake for the actual retrieval. I'm looking forward to waking up and having it all be over. It's just so weird and mind boggeling to be hoping for the very, very best yet still knowing that the outcome just can't be known. Further, it's the kind of thing that no matter what your intuition tells you, your intuition doesn't mean squat.

I just have to rest easy in the fact that so far everything has gone very well. There is no reason to think that things won't continue to go well. I trust my doctor, and I trust that God already has this all worked out. All I have to do is keep breathing and hang on for the ride.

So, if you could, please keep us in your prayers and hold a good thought for us.

Oh, and it's opening night at the hockey arena tonight. That should help to keep me distracted for a few hours.


  1. I hope it goes well with lots of perfectly formed mature eggs! You are in my prayers.

  2. I am thinking of you and I'm sending lots of good vibes for tomorrow's ER! I'll be at work when you leave so I'll be sure to send some love your way :)

    Very excited for you! XOXO

  3. Thinking of you and praying for your ER tomorrow!! I hope you're having a blast at the hockey game and that you're able to get some rest tonight! You've done a great job so far - you're so close!! :)

  4. Wow - time has flown by, I remember your contest to name the cycle and it seems like it was just yesterday! I hope they retrieve lots of perfect eggs. Fertilize, Fertilize, Fertilize! Can't wait to hear what happened.

  5. Will be thinking about you this weekend!

  6. Good luck today with everything - I am praying this all works out for the absolute best!!!

  7. I hope everything went great today! Good luck - i can't wait to hear.
