    As some of you know, My wife and I have been going through the long process of IVF, (Invitro). We have 2 adopted children, One just started College and another is a sophmore in HS.

    We go in for the actual Embryo Transfer in 1 week. b::

    Found this hanging on one of the gun cases tonight.... a baby suit... Reminded me of a look into E.L.'s laundry room when I was in TX.. 6 or 7 baby suits hanging in the window. I am more excited about this than anything else in the world.

    I can't wait..

    I am on my sixth beer and 2nd bloody mary this afternoon as I prepare for the family party this evening that requires lots of booze to "make it through".

    I apologize, the the samples are going to be late since I missed the ice cube tray on the last 3 tries. If I can't hit it with number 4, you are going to have to fill it yourself. Its a lot of work to try ot get 12 samples in those little depressions.

    Well, there are 8 little melbos lving and dividing in a Dish tonight. We go in for Embryo transfer in the morning. They are going to Implant 2 and freeze the rest.

    I tried to talk te wife into taking all 8 at once but even the idea of being on CNN didn't sway her into the task. We'll get the rest later.

    ALready bought a 'babies first knife' on Sunday when the fertization occured...

    We'll know if anything takes 10 days from tomorrow. I'll try to remember to update... [grlft]

    Well, at 8 AM yesterday morning, he looked like this with 4 cells. By Noon, right before the transfer, he was 8 celled...

    Now we wait 10 days to see if he likes his new digs. I would ;)
