Curveballs and Searching for Opal


After a couple of days to reflect, pray and nestle into the cocoon of supportive blogger and in-real-life friends and family, I'm ready to get back on the saddle.

Thank you to everyone who followed my blog, text messaged, called, and emailed. I can't tell you what it meant to feel surrounded by so much love during this time of great disappointment.

On Wednesday I felt like someone had snatched tickets to the World Series out of my hand and replaced them with admittance to a minor league baseball game. I was deeply moved this week by an e-mail message from a good friend of mine: Even curveballs produce homeruns, you know.

So today, we head two hours north for an IUI tomorrow morning.

Final numbers:
E2=712
3 (measurable) follicles (20, 20, 16.5)
Trigger shot last night.

Praying for the best and a little Opal Optimism in lieu of my good friend Debbie D.

I don't know what the numbers mean, but wishing you all the best tomorrow.

Thanks for telling me about your friend. That gives me a little encouragement for this last cycle.

I hope you don't feel too bummed about tomorrow, you have three follicles, which increases your odds.

Good luck, I'll be thinking about you tomorrow!

Good luck for your morning IUI. I've known ~many~ girls who have had their IUIs work for them. Wishing you all the luck they had!
