Wasn't expecting this call.....

This is Allison

Well, I got a call this afternoon from our Dr at the clinic telling me that we wouldn't be doing the egg retrieval tomorrow. I got a sick feeling in my stomach. He was so nice and calm and I'm sure he truly hated to have to call me. After all of the delays I've had during this whole journey...I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I'm not trying to have a pity party, but it has been one road block after another. But we will overcome and get through it. This news has kind of knocked me down....but not out. It's a crushing blow to the anticipation I had in for the egg retrieval tomorrow and the transfer next week. But, it will happen. Jenn and many others have been so supportive and sweet after hearing about it. The TOSS members are way awesome and have given so many encouraging words. It's hard to make it through a journey like this without support, encouragement, faith and trust. I'm trusting that there was a reason why it's not happening right now. This specific virus that Doug has could possibly cause birth defects. So, thank God they caught it and we didn't go through with the transfer and end up with a baby that has disabilities or something wrong. When I think of that, the waiting makes it worth it and makes it a little easier.

Thanks for everyone's comments. We read all of them and are thankful for your prayers and continual support.

All things happen in God's time, not ours. This may be frustrating to us at the moment, but in the end, you'll look back and realize His great wisdom in it all. I'm keeping you in my prayers!

Hang in there, Allison. It will all be good in due time.

Praying for all of you!
