The Day After

Life goes on and everything continues; that is reality. It does not make it any easier though. I am not one to dwell for long but this time things felt really different so the letdown was that much harder hitting. Pam and I are doing okay, bolstered by all the comments and calls, love and attention. It has helped a lot, I assure you, and we are forever grateful for the support and prayers and well wishes. We have an appointment lined up with the good doctor to go over what he thinks did not happen and why and what our next options and steps may be. I think that this really hurts because, due to the circumstances of everything, we are back to square one essentially and starting from scratch again in every way. For two over-achieving IT people, who love children not their own like their own, who want this so very much, it is a very hard, large, uncomfortable pill to swallow.

That said, we have lots of water. :)

We're not going anywhere just yet and you will continue to hear from us and we will continue to cheer and share with the rest of you in your attempts. There is always a reason for things, I truly believe. I just haven't found it yet. Maybe looking for it is part of the problem.

DW will be along to give you your normal insightful and relevant posts. She just needs a little more time.

From the both of us, once again, thank you all.

Just sending (((hugs))) to you both. I remember how much it sucked getting that news on New Years Eve that our FET didn't work and we were back at square one again.

Fight the good fight... there are lots of folks cheering for you!

We definitely will. Thanks MTW. :)

Take care, take your time, and drink heavily. And if you want the name of the Doc I was using, let me know. He's the guy doing the DHEA protocol and WTF, a second opinion never hurt anyone, right?

Reading back, I'm not sure that you guys could've done anything more than what you were doing to help implantation. Really.

I am sorry you guys. I heard my
2nd IVF didn't work last week, and I am still in a funk. I know what you guys are going through, the whole thing SUCKS.
