Prep Time Almost Complete!

I visited the doctor again today, and am pleased to report that all systems are go!  We are due to have the egg retrieval on Thursday.  I have six follicles (huge) on the left, and five follicles on the right.  I've decided to name the ones on the left Greg, Marsha, Peter, Jan, Bobby and Cindy.  The ones on the right I've named Marlon, Jackie, Jermaine, Tito and Michael. 

I would like to take a minute to publicly thank two dear people for their help in this process.  Mrs. Hair Stylist and Mrs. Chicken Farmer both donated medicine to me.  Mrs. Hair Stylist gave me medicine and tons of syringes and stuff.  Also, she's a great hair dresser.  I know you can't see me, but I'm pointing to my hair right now, and trust me, it looks fabulous.

Mrs. Chicken Farmer also donated medicine, and has just been genuinely supportive and is quite possibly one of the sweetest people on earth.  She and Mr. Chicken Farmer are expecting their Teeny Tiny Chick in January.

So I extend my heartfelt gratitude to those two, and everyone else who has supported both Mr. Muffin and myself through this.  We hope to have some great news to share with you in a couple of weeks!  In the meantime, I will let you know how the retrieval goes.


  1. Oh, Carrie...good luck to you! I am praying, crossing my fingers, and lighting a candle for you. Well, the candle is just a figurative one (they have rules against open flames at work).

  2. I'm hoping and praying for you girl!!! You can do it!!!
