Finished reading the updates and am so encouraged by the positive results from Jill and Alex(http://hopefromtheashes.wordpress.com/) and Bernadette and Duane (http://rastalesstraveled.blogspot.com/)! I am so happy that you both have such wonderful results to write about from your time in Delhi at SCI.
I can't help but appreciate the community of support that we are able to find online during this process. It has been such a blessing for me to find support in real life for the infertility process and, now, online for the surrogacy and infertility process. It's human nature to fear the unknown but, thanks to some gracious and open people willing to share the intimate parts of their journey to have children, it's less scary somehow. One of the best and most comforting things I've read lately has been from Jill and Alex as they've been in Delhi. I love that Alex gave Jill her injections just like Harris does for me. Somehow, reading what everyone is going thru in order to reach the ultimate goal helps me to feel a lot less alone in this process. It lets me live vicariously thru others and I am now emotionally invested in their lives, success, bumps, and questions. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR BEING WILLING TO SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCES!!!
In that spirit, I do have a question for those of you who have travelled to India already. What did you do to combat the mosquitoes and malaria? The foreign travel nurse said there were 3 options but one was an antibiotic (that's probably out, right?). How did you handle this?
Off to do my infectious diseases panel in the morning. This will be my third day of needles this week. Urrr!
