It's been a long time since I've last posted, but this summer has been super busy. It seems like after we found our donor things have just been cruzin along. Both good and bad.
When we went to Portland July 18th and 19th we got the all clear to go ahead with the donor cycle. The Doppler u/s that I had down there gave me better numbers then the one we had here - doesn't surprise me, they didn't really know what they were doing here. The lining check went great at 9mm and I even had the triple strip that they look for so FX that I get the same, if not better, results when we go there for DE retrieval around the end of September.
Yes that's right, we're going back to Portland that soon!! I'm so happy that I didn't have to wait long to get things underway. I picked up all my meds this week at RFP and also went to Customs - again - so they would release my 2 viles of Delestrogen so now I'm set. I start my Lupron, Prenatal Vitamins, Asprin 81mg and Doxycycline all on August 29th. My last BCP for a total of 32 days is September 2nd. It sure is happening fast, I'm getting so excited!!
Yesterday G and I had to go to his Grandpa's funeral, which was sad but was done beautifully. He was in the police force many many years ago so he go a police escort to the cemetary which was very nice. Both my Mom and Dad came to the funeral. It was a little sad though because after the precession we all went to the reception room and then all of a sudden my Dad started to cry. It caught me so off guard that I asked him why he was crying, to which he answered "it a funeral, people cry" but I think I know why, I think it was because of everything that he's been going through with his cancer. I think it just really hit him hard seeing all those people grieving... it was sad.
Dad's been good this last month after he had the blood transfusion when he went into the hospital July 23rd. His swelling has gone down in the last week and he's now able to fit into his regular shoes, which is nice because all he could get on his feet were Crocs... I just keep praying everyday that we have a long time with him.
So that's some of it in a nut shell.
