2012's Motto: You're only defeated if you allow yourself to quit. We aren't quitting!Our basic theme of self-pity, anger, and acceptance has run its course (we move quickly) and we are once again back on the road facing forward. While it would have been fan-flippin-tastic to have had a positive on the first attempt, it's not what we got. So, we're going to find a way to get over it and head back to India for another attempt this year.
I get out of school around the second week in June so there would be no secrecy or planning for FMLA leave this time on my end. For the first time in decades, there will be no baseball in the town where we live and Harris will work normal hours (rather than 100+ hour weeks). FMLA would have to happen for him again, but our doctor told us today that he'd work with us again to do whatever he could to support us in our efforts to have a child. Did I ever mention that our doctor ROCKS??
Current plan, that I have not run past the wonderful folks in India, would include us getting there around the middle of June and doing another retrieval. Harris should only need to do a fresh sample the day of retrieval as there are either one or two on ice for him right now. I will be sad to not have a baby in 2012, as we just knew that this was our year to be parents, but again - we'll get over it. We're going to work to pay off as much acquired debt as possible between now and then. Maybe we should start playing the lottery?!?!
