Well, I'm dreading writing this post.  I am still in shock about the entire situation.  My IPs have decided to put the surrogacy off indefinitely.  My coordinator emailed me the news yesterday.  My mouth literally dropped as I read it.  I was not expecting this at all.  We have been matched since April!  All these things keep going through my head.  I guess it just wasn't meant to be.  Best of luck in the future, D & S!!  I'm truly sorry things didn't work out.

So, we will be moving on to try to find another match.  At least I'm more aware of how things work up until this point, but it's still such an utter disappointment.  My coordinator said they have a waiting list of IPs, so matching could be fairly quick.  I'm feeling a bit more guarded now, knowing they could just walk away like that.  Hopefully we can help someone become parents in 2012!!

<sigh>  Moving on...praying 2012 will be a better year all around.

Oh, Skype!

I was so looking forward to yesterday.  It was going to be my first Skype video chat with D&S.  My wonderful laptop was not cooperative.  Skype wouldn't work at all, not even to type.  I even un-installed it and re-installed....nothing.  Ahhh!  I will have to keep trying to figure out what's going on since it's the only computer I have to video chat with. 

I can't believe Christmas is a week away!  Time is going by so quickly right now.  I hope to have "Santa" give L a call sometime in the coming days.  He will absolutely LOVE that!  Off to the doc today to get D's broken arm x-rayed and checked out again.  Hopefully only 2 more weeks of wearing the cast. 

Merry Christmas to you all!  Have a wonderful New Year as well if I don't "chat" with you before then.  :)

Time is actually moving

Well, not much new going on yet.  So sorry for being such a bore!  I will be going for more testing sometime this month.  My coordinator will be letting me know the timing of that fairly soon.  Then we will get the results back from those and then hopefully I will get my calendar noting all the important dates and medication schedules.  I just really can't believe it's December already.  Time during the holidays just flies by, which is a very good thing!  :)  I was worried I would be staring at the calendar as each day dragged on. 

My middle son broke his arm at about 9am the Sunday after Thanksgiving.  That threw a wrench into my hubby's last day of deer hunting...oops!  He is doing well though.  It really hasn't slowed him down, which is a good and a bad thing.  I don't think it really phased him at all, unfortunately, since he still tries to climb and jump off everything he can.  He is ALL boy, that's for sure!  Ugh, I hate to say it, but I feel this is just the first of several broken bones that dear child will have! 

Here's to December flying by, but still enjoying all the wonderful time with family during Christmas and all the gatherings that go along with it.  Ciao!
