We went for Ashley's first IVF check today and everything looked great!!! We thought it looked not great as Ash has been taking Lupron to suppress her ovaries and she had 6 follicles growing, go figure, we never had that many follicles when we were TTC and now that we need to be suppressed she's uber producing. We spoke with the clinician at CFA and she said everything was good, they aren't worried about the follicles so we're a go so far. Ash will start a couple more medications tomorrow and we go back next month for another check. It's crazy how close we're getting.
I also got a phone call from my son today. I haven't heard from him since before Christmas so I was really needing to hear his voice. Just hearing it soothes my soul enough that I can come to grips with him being in Afghanistan. He just received a ton of packages that everyone has been sending him so he was very happy. It must have seemed like Christmas to him. He seemed to be in really good spirits, he didn't complain about anything except the cold. He's managed to get frostbite on a few of his toes but he said the Dr said he'd be fine.
