Birthday, Countdown and Irony

Please look over to your right... --->
Over there on the sidebar...
Do you see some major irony? No? Well... Let me explain.

I never took down the ticker I created for my little girl.

The ticker's current message is ironic, don't you think?

"Our appologies.
Due to a hardware failure this ticker has been lost.
It will need to be replaced with another ticker."

I'm working on it Lilliepad, I really am...

Luckily, through the blessing of the "hardware failure" I don't have to see just how many days I am from that due date. Sigh.

Trying again starting in 3, 2, 1...

My Egg Retrieval is tomorrow morning - 8 AM. We have a babysitter to come stay with Jim while we sneak off and retrieve some eggs.

I've been told that the 3 day/5 day transfer question will be decided based on how many embies we have and how well they are growing. I would like very much to transfer on day 3, but I expect I'll have to leave it up to the lab.

Egg count on Thursday was 14! YAY! Now I'm just hoping for some good fertilization rates and good growth.

Why is it that I feel like I'm in a marathon? A marathon that is scary win or loose.

Birthday? Whose Birthday? Oh, you mean that BIG boy, Jim! Yeah, turned 2 today... We had a party at school for him. His coolio Momma made Elmo cupcakes and bought plates, hats, and napkins to match.

Happy Birthday, Jim! Yeah for turning two! You're a very lucky guy to have a mommy who makes cupcakes like that! :-)

14 is AWESOME!!! Wow! Everything's crossed for a smooth retrieval and successful fert tomorrow!

Good Luck with the retrieval!

What great cupcakes.
Happy birthday Jim!

I'm hoping everything goes fantastic this morning!!!

Happy Birthday Jim!! Those cupcakes are ADORABLE!!! You are so super talented.

I'm glad the ticker had a "hardware" issue.
