Let's Do It...

I am so tired right now I'm not sure anyone is going to be able to understand this post. Yesterday started at 5:30am due to a very early doctor's appointment. TOIAW went with me because I was afraid of bad news. That wasn't necessary because I received very good news (7-8 follicles which some of you may not consider great, but it's better than the 4-5 I had Friday)! The arrangements were made for the tomorrow's (Wednesday) egg retrieval.

I was sent to meet with Dr. Funk, as in Dr. Wolfgang Funk. [Just thinking his name makes me laugh.] For some reason, the Germans insist on an anesthesiology consultation prior to every surgery. In theory, I can see the merit but the reality is you fill out a questionnaire and they tell you the side effects are nausea and vomiting. Dr. Google can tell me that. In any event, I checked that box. Who knows, with enough time I might even learn to embrace all this beauracracy!

I was glad TOIAW made it to his important meeting because he received orders not to go on the short business trip to the combat zone. Woo-Hoo! Also, a briefing he was set to give tomorrow was rescheduled for today freeing him to be my caretaker all day.

I'm praying God will watch me and protect me and grant the desire of my heart: a baby. I trust Him; He is my strength.

I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?

My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;

Indeed he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;

The sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;

The LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

Psalm 121 (NIV)
