Egg Retrieval

The ER went well today. I was so nervous while we were waiting. They were so busy it was like an assembly line for ER today. At about 8:30, Dr. J(best Dr. in the world) came and got me and wheeled me back to the OR. When we got there, he was like, "ok let's get this done right this time." I just love him! I also had a nurse that I used to work with at Riley as one of my nurses. She was really sweet and as her and Dr. J where putting my legs up into the stirrups, I was luckily drifting off to sleep. So I didn't have too much time to think about the fact that someone from work was all down in my business;). For all of you Riley girls reading this, it was Stacey M. from Mod 6. Thank you everyone for your encouraging words over the last few days and all of the prayers that were being said for us this morning. We appreciate it so much...and now we just wait for the fertilization report in the AM. I am pretty sleepy so hopefully I'll sleep the day away so it will go by fast!!. Oh yeah...Dr. J gave Rob a thumbs up, when he brought me back to my recovery room(i was still out of it) and said that he got 5 good eggs and seemed to be happy with that. We are too! Keep praying that our little eggs and spermies turn into embies...healthy embies! :) Thanks!

Us "patiently" waiting for our turn:)
Me a little out of it(or a lot.lol.wow!)...saying we got 5!!

Yeah! I am so excited it went well and Dr. J was the one doing the retrieval. I couldn't agree more - the best doctor!! :-) Can't wait to hear how the fertilization report comes back tomorrow!! I assume you'll be doing a 3-day transfer on Friday?

Oh my goodness Lindsey!!! My computer has been down for the past few days and I had no idea you were so close to your ER. I wasn't able to pray for your specific prayer requests, but it sounds like God answered the ones who were praying. He is so AWESOME!! I didn't know you could be "asleep" during an ER. I wish I know that for our two we did. Can't wait to read more posts. I was actually in Indy last night and thought about calling you, but...
I am so happy for you!!! Call if you need anything.
