The Start of Our Journey!! :D

Feb 15, 2016 - 9 comments

Made some phone calls today.  Brian has to have more blood work done before he has his biopsy.  They'll be checking for HIV, yadda yadda yadda because they want to make sure his biopsy isn't contaminated when they store it in the freezer thingy (yeah I don't know these technical terms lol) with the other samples. He'll have to sign a consent form saying they have his permission to freeze it.  SO it's blood work Wednesday morning, then I'll call and make an appointment with the urologists.  The urologists will then help us decide on a day to do the biopsy.  WHAT!!?!!??!!  Wow I cannot believe it's here.  I know it's not tomorrow but ugh, I'm getting so nervous.  All these horrible "what if's " are running through my brain.  :(  I just pray they find something, anything.  Anything!!!!  

So that's where we're at.  

OH and I signed up with Compassionate Care to see if we'd get a discount with future IVF meds and they approved us for up to 50% off.  Now I'm not sure if they only have certain meds they give discounts on or how it works really but my cousin's wife told me it helps a lot.  SO here's crossing my fingers.  :D

Omg des!! Don't dwell on the what if's, if you're going to you need to also dwell on the positive what if's - what if I get pregnant and have a healthy happy pregnancy because of all of this hard work?! I cannot wait to see your positive pregnancy test, your growing bump and your birth announcement, one step at a time and all of this hard work will pay off!!! FX it's sooner rather than later!! Praying for you and Brian!!!

Nice!  I know you will have a lot of unknowns, but just keep your eye on the prize and give your nephew a little cousin!  Can't wait to hear more about this week.  Hugs!!

Thank you ladies SO much!!!   Brian went for extra blood work yesterday morning and we got that out of the way.  He sees the Urologists on March 7th and then we'll schedule his biopsy.  Wow!!!  I asked him the other night if he was nervous and he said "no, not really.  Maybe when it's closer to time I might be, but not right now".  I'm nervous!!!!!! and Scared!!!  

I cannot believe this ball is finally rolling.  Still shocked.

Thank you so much Journey.  I'm going to try to take KT's advice, think about the positive "what if's". :D
