Disappointment, My Old Friend

Before I start with my little drama, I just want to send a big CONGRATULATIONS to H2H! It truly filled my heart with joy and hope to hear her good news. I am going to keep praying for you and your little one.

Well, the appointment never happened. I received a call that the doctor was running late, and then I got a call cancelling the appointment. Dr. Fast was called away for emergency surgery.

I was really pissed off at first. The emotional run up to this made it so hard to hear that I was going to have to wait even longer to get this process started. I should have gone back to work, but I just couldn't. I went home, laid down and got some perspective. I thought about the woman on the other end of my appointment who had the same dreams as I do and how she was having a much worse day than I was. The new patient coordinator called a few hours later and we are back on for Thursday afternoon.

In the mean time, there was good news in all of this. I was able to get my OB/GYNs office to fax M's test results to me at work. As far as I can tell from the information on the sheet and my obsessive Googling, he is fine. In fact, he gets an A+. I mean that literally - the bottom of the paper said "Sperm Quality: A+".

One factor eliminated and 10,000 more to go.

I'm sorry to hear that your appointment got cancelled, what a huge letdown. But I'm happy to hear that you've got a certified A+ hubby. :-)

Shit man, this IF stuff just never gets easier does it? There always seems to be a bump in the road.

Great news on the sperm result, praying that your appt goes well and that they find something small that's a quick fix!
