Surgery Day

Surgery Day

Nurse l33t Joy was bright eyes and bushy tailed at 8am today!

We were not so much, but after 15 shots in 8 days (the last being Sat night at 10:15 pm ON THE DOT!) can you really blame us? At least Derrian gets to be put to sleep for a little bit and then do nothing the rest of the day.

Great people in these situations are always the best, explaining, calming, joking. It is the best way to keep the nervousness away. Surgeries are simple, and fun really (from what Derrian says). They give you happy drugs, warm blankets, and food after!

All for only 15-20 minutes of sleep.

CKnight had a harder time with it, but got to chuckle at his ‘out-of-it’ wife and balance Oreos on her nose to take pictures to send to family.

He’ll make up for it later when he has to wait on Derrian hand and foot since she is not allowed to get of the couch for 24 hours. Lol.

Some Dates have been set!

Black Friday visits to the Doctor! We can’t wait for a nap! Ugh.

But some good news came out of the early morning appointment. We have our special Harvest date lined up. One full day early!

November 30th!

It is exciting for sure, and also a little frightening. It is amazing how quickly you go from ‘start this routine now’, to ‘stop everything and we are going to put you to sleepy for a little bit and take things out of you.’

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

(yes that is a White Castle Crave Case we use to make Stuffing)

We host the ‘orphans’ during the Holidays. Open our doors and cook way to much food and see who shows up. It is normally a house full, and today was no different. It was great having friends around and chit chatting. Forgetting all the crazy that has been going on the past year (and more important the past week).

We learned a long time around that speaking about the issues you have during a tough adventure is so much easier than trying to hide it from the companions you have in the world. We are amazed that more people don’t do so, it is a big relief to have that support system.

So house of people, full bellies, and a slightly traumatic couple of evening shots during that time (why does that second one in a row cause so much angst!) and it was a good day!

Now some late late night shopping with family and friends, before a 7 am appointment with Nurse l33t Joy. Who needs sleep anyway ;P

4 Days and 4 needles. Not so bad right?

Well we took a visit to Nurse l33t Joy to see how the little microscoptic tenticales were forming and things soundsed good. In fact our big ‘mission’ days might move forward! Sounds amazing! Get this hard journey done sooner then planned! Right?

Wrong!

Nurse l33t Joy upped one shot a day to 3… for 3 days… Starting today. Ouch ouch ouch.

We’ll just keep repeating out mantra… “It’s all to beat the bag guy… It’s all to beat the bad guy… It’s all to beat the a-hole of a bad guy!”

4 Days and 4 needles. Not so bad right?

Well we took a visit to Doctor Leonard to see how the little follicles were forming and things sounded good. In fact our big ‘harvest’ day might move forward! Sounds amazing! Get this hard journey done sooner then planned! Right?

Wrong!

The Doctor upped 1 shot a day to 3… for 3 days… Starting today. Ouch ouch ouch.

We’ll just keep repeating out mantra… “It’s all to make a baby. It’s all to make a baby. It’s all to make a baby that your really REALLY want!”

Shots

Shots

11/21 the worst of the checkpoints. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to touch one of Jolteon’s spikes of your own free will? Maybe casually with your stomach?

Nope, nope, nope.

Why?!

Cause Nurse l33t Joy said we had to…. *insert the biggest, saddest faced meme we can find here*

We invited over an old friend of ours, a fellow nerd who turned medical person, to show us the ins and outs of mixing herbal drugs and administering them in the stomach with a cute little needle.

The anticipation was really the worst part, the unknown of what is around that dark corner… Derrian only had a small little bruise to show for the mental fight she put up with. It is a load off our minds.

One needle down! (How many more is there again?)

11/21 the worst of the checkpoints. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to give yourself an injection in your stomach?

Nope, nope, nope.

Cause the Doctor said we had to…. *insert the biggest, saddest faced we can find here*

We invited over an old friend of ours, she is in the medical field and can show us the ins and outs of mixing drugs into a needle ourselves and administering them in to Derrian’s stomach with a cute little needle.

Dates, dates, dates

No, not one of those hentai dating video games you see in an anime featuring a harem of cutesy little girls and a single boy of is socially award around every single one of them.

We mean the paper that shows us each checkpoint we have to make during this last leg of our journey to defeat the bad guy named Killer T.

10/8, 10/14, 11/3, 11/10, 11/11, 11/16, 11/17, 11/21, 12/1

We are sure there will be more reveal soon, the story is still unfolding before us at this point. That castle, that you just ‘know’ is the final one that you have been fighting towards for a such a long while. We have been crossing them off as we pass each, there are now more crossed off then not. That is an accomplishment in and of itself. But with each one we take pen to, the scarier it gets.

We have no guarantees of the outcome to this adventure.

 

 

Dates, dates, dates

No, not one of those dating websites that are advertised on the TV, radio, computers, and really just everywhere!

We mean the paper that shows us each checkpoint we have to make during this whole IVF process.

10/8, 10/14, 11/3, 11/10, 11/11, 11/16, 11/17, 11/21, 12/1
