It’s not over yet…

I have an overwhelming sense of sadness with every step in this cycle knowing that once it’s done, it’s done. Bottom of the ninth, down by 2. Two out. Bases empty. The other team has last at bat. Pack up the clothes. List gear on crai$#ist. Clear away all the little baby things.

But today is not that day. We’re not out of the game yet. We retrieved 3 eggs today. Three. The RE gave us some positive examples. He’s not ready to call it a day. But he also said, when he came to check on me and found me sitting silently with tears streaming down my face, that we don’t know what we don’t know. It’s one day at a time. We just have to wait and see. And it only takes one.

It only takes one and we have three. Which is my favourite number. My hockey number. My lucky number. And 2 more than 1.
So it’s not over yet.

    Third time’s the charm, 3’s a lucky number… I will try to think many positive thoughts for those 3 little ones over the next couple of days.

      Tried to comment over at your blog. not sure if it went through. Good Luck with your retrieval. Fingers are crossed it goes smoothly. I’ll be waiting right along with you.

  3. Fingers crossed that one of those is the golden charm (or all 3!) x
