Nothing new - T minus 11 hours and counting...

Just wanted to write that it is getting closer to time...My mind cannot grasp the enormity of what Matt and I are about to go through. I am excited that we will hopefully have some closure with the process...but the other side (the downward plunge of the roller coaster) it just makes me angry that Matt and I cannot have a "fun - spontaneous - just let it happen" trying-to-have-a-baby time. Matt and I have to drop $9500 tomorrow...we are gambling that we will "win" a baby. We could so use that $9500 for other things...diapers, formula, baby food, clothes, toys, college funds...

I got the billing statement from St. Vincent's yesterday from my surgery. Thank God for insurance because the laparoscopy was $20,394. Anyway, that was a fun statement to open...Thank you Blue Cross Blue Shield!

Two weeks from now we should know how many eggs they retrieved and we will be praying as they fertilize. The process begins tomorrow...I am just ready for it to be over with. Thank you for your prayers. I do feel God is up to something here.

what if you gamble and come out with 8 babies, that would be fun
