If there was an award this post would get it

No, no, no, not my post, this one that Lollipop Goldstein, a.k.a. our beloved Mel over at the new Stirrup-Queens wrote.

I know that all of you feel as I do, grateful to Mel for providing so many resources for those of us in the online ALI community.

I always think of Mel as like our den mother, or our RA in the dorm, or the cool teacher at school, or the lady in front of you in line at the grocery store who just excudes something special and you want to talk to her. Her brilliant writing and sincerity really come through in this one.


In other news, we met with Dr. K yesterday, turned out to be an early appointment actually, 7:30pm, LOL. The really cool thing is that he called me! I was suppose to call him and hadn't yet by late afternoon and he called asking what time we could come in.

So in a nutshell, we are making some changes for IVF #4 this month. Won't go into too much detail now, but may share some later. I feel good about it and hope that the tweaks will help. It does involve some testing and appropriate treatments if we find we need them.

We stayed for three hours talking, and mind you this was not a pay appointment. Just like a pop-in conference, on him i guess? He's actually like a friend now- we invited him and his family to come to our home if he ever takes time off, which we told him we are sure he does.

Its so different here, you really feel at ease with doctors, or at least we have been lucky and its happened that way for us. We always have their mobile (cell) number, emails, etc. and can really call anytime we need to. Maybe you can too, I don't know, but this relationship with Dr. K is a special one. When we thanked him so much for meeting with us, he told us his wish is to always be able to see us and for our baby to arrive soon. He is so sincere and I swear it makes all the difference.

So fingers crossed, prayers ready, candles lit, whatever it is you do, join me in hoping maybe, just maybe four (4th IVF trial) and eight (8th embryo transfer) will be our lucky numbers. Hope you're weekend was great! xoxoxoxo

    I'm so happy for you that your meeting went well and I'm keeping both fingers and toes crossed that this is THE ONE!

    Great that you have a great doctor. When I chose my dr. it was important to me that he would be a caring, nice person who doesn't see me as just another patient of his.

  4. Praying for you and hubby to get that little one...or two(?)
