Another Door Opens

It's been a crazy week for us. Work has been super busy which I always expect when I get back from vacation. But my patients were extra "special" this week which makes for an even longer week than usual. I sat in patient rooms watching the clock tick off seconds...

Also, Aaron found out this week that he has a varicocele which is a common cause of male infertility. Bad news is that it adversely affects his counts. Good news is that it is fixable. Bad news is that surgery is the best option.

It kinda changes everything for us from here as far as I'm concerned. If we can get those counts up, our chances increase a ton. I'll be calling Dr. Haas to make a consult appointment so we can discuss our latest discovery. Not sure what he'll suggest we do, but I trust him to guide us in the right direction.

Great news about Baby Kate: she was extubated this morning (removed the breathing tube) and she is doing well. They will be keeping her in the hospital until her 2nd heart surgery which is done between 4-6 months old. So, please keep them in your thoughts and prayers since my cousin is super tired of living away from home with her other baby.

  1. I'm sorry to hear about your hubby, but I'm glad it is fixable. We thought G had that last week, did your hubby have an ultrasound? Hang in there sweetie, at least you are getting on the right track and moving things along. It is better to know something is wrong and to fix it then not to know. We learned G had an infection a few days ago and it made me so sad to know all my clomid cycles were wasted on his "bad" sperm, lol.

    YAY for baby Kate! What wonderful news, so glad she is going home!
