Seven Beautiful Eggs

Hey y'all, this is "Sweetness" aka Heather's hubby. The day is over and I gotta tell you, its been a roller coaster. We got to the doctors office and, just like the military, it was hurry up and wait. When we were finally called back, I was directed to the "blue room" and my babe was taken back to see the anesthesiologist. So...I'm sitting there and sent a little prayer up to God. We've had some stressful moments this week and He has always lifted us up through those times, so I knew that He would listen today. It was then that I found out the coffee machine was empty...ummm, not so good. Hey, I had my blackberry and a full battery, so time to surf.

After about two hours, they called me to go back with her in recovery and she was looking...a little frazzled. Turns out that the team had a difficult time putting and keeping her under. So much so that they had to "bag" her twice. Yea, I wasn't digging that too much either. But the good news came next. Seven beautiful eggs all ready for my swimmers. I wont go into that experience only to say that...umm...it was awkward.

So the nurse went over the meds...what to take and what not to take and we were off. A Chic-fil-a stop later we were at the house and my babe was resting for a couple hours. Then...fifteen minutes ago...it was time. Time for me to give my first shot EVAR. Now, I can hold my own with a calculator, but a syringe??? Have you SEEN the needle? You have GOT to be kidding me. But I gotta say, I came through like a champ. 2 cc's of something or other is now coursing through her body thanks to me.

So the remainder of the evening will be relaxing in bed while I keep poking my head in asking if I can get her anything.

Today was the first of many great days to come and I'm looking forward to the months ahead, waiting for the little ones to make their entrance into the world. Sometimes, I wonder if I'm going to be a good dad, but the reaction I get from my babe pushes those doubts away. I'm so far from perfect, but I want to be the best husband and dad that I can be. With my babe, my family and the Lord, I know there's nothing we cant do.

So we want to thank everyone for their prayers. We should hear tomorrow late afternoon how many embryos are fertilized. So stay tuned, same bat channel, same bat time.

Take care,
Sweetness
