For your eyes only


Excuse my lack of posting this week, I’ve been hit with my annual Fall cold. My joints ache, and I have the worst sore throat. Eh.

The title above.. For your eyes only. After I wrote it, all I could think about was Sheena Easton. Whatever happened to her anyway? Now I am stuck with that song in my head, and it’s all my fault.

Anyway, on to the post.

I’ve been busy doing research offline regarding the DE cycle. Besides trying to figure out how I am going to come up with the money, I’ve been putting together my exhaustive list of questions for the donor coordinator, Nurse T. I have a meeting with her on Monday.

Over the last week, I’ve put a lot of thought to how I want to handle this going forward, in so far as privacy. Those who know me IRL have been following my journey for years now, and my failures have certainly NOT been a secret to my family and those close to me. Which I am entirely okay about.

But as I embark on this new journey, I have a request:

My lovely SIL’s read my blog, as do some close friends and family. I would ask that if you do know me IRL, please keep my thoughts here and the clinical details under your hat. Please don’t share the specifics with anyone.

I am not exactly sure how much I want people to know about pursuing a genetic donor. This is merely a way to safeguard myself, and any potential offspring that may result.

There are so many emotions not sorted out yet, so please do indulge me as I morph into over-protective mom-mode.

You know that I am usually the person wearing my heart on my sleeve… an open book if you will… but for this part of the journey I wish to retain a little privacy.

As far as the world is concerned outside of this blog, I will merely be chasing another fresh IVF cycle. One more step along the path. And I invite you all to join me.
