Flights, drugs and getting old(er).
Just 25 days til I fly to Delhi, gulp!!! I really dread the travel, its a 26 hour trip with a 10.5 hour time change, and I have never done it while cycling so this should add some extra spice. I will start my stims on November 30th and hope all goes well and that my retrieval will happen a few days before we fly home. The flight home happens to be on my 40th birthday! What a way to celebrate huh! Stuck in a plane, in an airport, back on a plane then home, exhausted and more than likely swollen from retrieval. Yehaw! Hopefully I can muster up enough strength and energy on the last flight home to have a glass of red wine in celebration of my birthday and anticipation of a pregnancy. Nothing like airline wine to celebrate! I am always thankful and grateful for what life gives me, and sometimes it gives me really special people. Most of you know and love Mandy, and are cheering her on for a pregnancy. Mandy and I have become the last of the graduating class of 2008 surrogacy students to have not had success. In pure generosity, Mandy has FedEx'd me 5 gonal f pens that should land on Canadian soil today. What an amazing gift from her. With all the greatness she puts out into the universe, I think the universe owes her big time! Now, lets just see how Canada customs handles this shipment! Thanks a million Mandy! I think this lot of gonal f will give both of us the babies we so want and deserve!
