date me

July 14, 2008

we got our dates late last week (yay!) and my do things take longer than i’d imagined to get up and running. i’ll start bcp on july 25th as well as lovanox and then all the other fun will fall into place. at the end of two months of needles galore we’ll have our transfer on either sept 3rd or 5th. the craziest thing about the transfer dates is that it would put my due date (if we’re lucky enough to make it that far) May 29th. Which coincidentally is my cancerversary. which to me is nuts. i can’t think of a better present on my six year anniversary of living past all that sick. so here we go. i’m freaked out for sure but super excited and so ready to begin. does it usually take 6 plus months to make it this far? don’t answer that, i might just jinx myself.

geez. that was a long time underwater. that’s what it seemed like to me. but here i am past another hurdle. i’m sorry to have disappeared for geez, well, like forever, but after losing donor #3 and #4 i felt like i needed to keep to myself for a while until i had something more to say than, “lost another one”. i mean who would have thunk it would take five separate donors to actually get to the schedule dates phase. we haven’t even begun the cycle yet. five donors, six months, and hundreds of rolled eyes and disappointed glances. but we’re back!

so now where are we, well i got the word today that we’ll start BCP in two weeks and then go from there. i’ve never been so excited to have someone start jabbing me with needles. yehaw! it’s taken so long to get to this stage for us and i hope to hell i’m not coming out of the woodwork too soon. don’t want to jinx myself but i just feel so flipping excited that we’ve made it one more step closer.

ahh. so there you have it. i’m back. and hopefully for a full cycle. yipe! let the games begin!
