I don't have anything new to report or anything exciting to mention, but I felt like posting none-the-less. I keep checking my calendar to be sure that I'm not forgetting something, but I think I check it more often just to count down the days to our potential transfer date :) Allison will be starting her meds soon, so we can chat & be hormonal together! My first doctor's appointment and "lining check" (as in uterine lining) is scheduled for next Friday, so until then I will continue to stick myself every morning for my Lupron shots, and will begin my asprin regimen tomorrow. Sunday will signal the start of my Vivelle patches (estrogen), so all is moving along smoothly!

I think the point of the post is to simply say thank you all for your kind words of encouragement & support. Receiving reassurance from people I don't know, and to have complete strangers say that they are praying for us (all of us) means so very much - you just cannot imagine. I know that I have chosen the path less-traveled, but have found such strength and support in others that I have crossed paths with, those that are traveling this same road along side me. And to those that may not understand the reasons or reasoning behind my decision to be a surrogate, I simply say that I don't need you to understand, but trust that I am sitting in the center of my Savior's hands. I haven't entered into this decision lightly or without allot of prayer, but I trust that He has guided me to this place in my life, for a time such as this.

May the Lord richly bless you this weekend!

Thank you Katrina and Membership Required. I just received my meds yesterday and I am very excited. It's just right around the corner. It's really going to happen. :)
