Because I know you are wondering...

Naturally I assume that you are all wondering about my current IVF status. We are now 5 shots down (6 as soon as I make it upstairs to where my stash is) and things are going as they should. I went in for an appointment this morning and although it was early my lining was thin (it will thicken as the days go by), my bloodwork is good, and I already have one ovary that had three very clear follicles... potential as my favorite nurse, Rachael, said! I get nervous at every appointment because I'm more than aware that my ultrasounds could show something detrimental or my bloodwork could come back wacky and do this cycle in. So each time I make it through one, I am very thankful. I will continue on with my same dosage of meds, one shot in the am, and one shot in the pm. I'll go back on Monday for my next appointment. I really suspect that my ER will be around July 11th (give or take a day or two). Considering I will be 32 (I know, I don't look a day over 25) on July 13th, I think this will be a great birthday present!

On a side note, I'm sending out a prayer request. A man that used to work with Jeff is in the hospital with fl.esh bacteria. It has gotten worse and at this point they have had to amputate part of his fingers/hand and there is a possibility that they will have to take more in the days to come. Please, please pray that everything will be ok. He is a husband and a father of three small children. He was also recently laid-off due to cutbacks and his insurance ends as of Monday. With all my heart, I pray that the Lord will give him and his family strength, courage, and healing. I'm a firm believer in the power of prayers, my Chase is proof that they work. TIA!

*I am grateful for:
1) friends that care enough to pray
2) the time I get to spend just having fun w/Jeff and Chase
3) Molly our Bulldog, she rocks
4) that today is Friday
5) another great IVF appointment
