Looking At My Options With Hope

Well today I finally got the email I've been waiting very impatiently for.  Oh and it made me happy.

I have yet to tell J the good news with the email but I'll share it with him later on. 

As for the doctor now.  Okay RE's office called me yesterday and told me that they wanted a blood count done. I got it done.  It was just fine.  I'm fine too.

Thankfully the bleeding is light today.  I'm hoping it will be done in a day or two since its now CD 10.

So back to the email.  I got my password today for the donor egg bank.  I've been viewing profiles ever since.  I'm a little dismayed that there aren't more donors than originally given at a glance.  But that is okay too.  I have looked at each profile.  I have written down information and will sort through it tonight with any luck. 

Yes I want to get this ball rolling as soon as we get word.  The word being whether or not J can re-enlist.  I'll deal with the rest of the gynecological issues as they crop up.  I do have a real worry with the endometriosis.  I know that prostaglandins can cause me to miscarry early on.  Again I'll worry about that when I have to.  I lose enough sleep with the fibromyalgia.

Thank you to all my blogger friends out there that have given me so much support.  Now its just a wait and see.  For now all I can think of is the cyst that is not going away and how it might make all this a bust.

    1. I'm excited and really want this to happen. Sure I would have loved to have used my own eggs but that in reality isn't an option now.

    1. Me too. I want, sounds sick, to get the injections and pills soon. I want the hormone roller coaster but for a reason that means I'll have excellent grade A eggs to work with.

    1. Sometime in October I think. He has to have full recovery time from his surgery, pass a PT test and find a new job in the Army where they'll want to keep him. This drawn down of forces means big budget cuts.

  5. This IS great news! I remember sorting through the donors. You'll find a terrific one, no doubt.

    Advice: look for and choose a proven donor. We did.

    1. I only looked at proven donors. I didn't even think about looking at any others. Oh and last night we picked our two favorites out of about a dozen. I went primarily by my blood type.
