One Step At A Time

I apologize for my lack of posting-  I'm a bit overwhelmed.

I came home from work on Saturday to find a huge box on my front porch. It's taken 2 weeks and a bizarre game of phone tag between Walgreen's Specialty Pharmacy, Houston IVF, my insurance company and myself, but my meds have finally arrived. After I unpacked the box, I sat and stared at this mass of syringes, needles and vials and my first thought was, "What the HELL am I going to do with all of this?".     :)

My Giant Basket-O-Meds

There are days where I wish I could warp through some pipe like Mario and come out in another world- where the outcome of this process has already been revealed. Other days, I want to hold on so tightly to each second, because I feel like things are on the edge of spinning dangerously out of my control.  This is all completely normal, I know.  It's just a new feeling for me, because I am usually so completely in control.   There aren't enough adjectives to describe the gamut of feelings I run through in any given day.

One adjective that works every day?  Hopeful.  For the outcome of this IVF cycle of course, and also for the fact that it seems Fall is attempting to arrive!  We haven't had a 100+ degree day in almost a week, and it has rained recently. Here's proof!

Hope all is well in your corner of the world, and that you're enjoying great weather as well.   I appreciate all of you that stop by to see how our story is unfolding!
