Not an easy decision...

but the right one. We have decided to forgo the FET next month while we figure out what's going on with Michael and how best to treat it. He really wanted me to move ahead as planned, but I would rather wait until this battle is behind us and we can proceed without so many other concerns swirling around our heads. After discussing it a couple times yesterday, we are now on the same page. I remember our doctor telling us that it doesn't really matter how old I am to do an FET, so it's not like we're in a race against my biological clock on this one.

Once again, I just have peace about this decision. Michael is my number one priority right now. Lord willing, we'll move through this challenge, and come out on the other side healthy and whole and ready to start a family.

For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.

It sounds like you made a well-thought-out decision. That's a lot of pressure for a couple to put on themselves.

I totally understand you wanting to wait. Your a wonderful wife. Praying they figure out what is going on very soon.

((hugs))

I seriously don't know how you were able to make this decision! I hope it's the only hard one you have to make for a long, long while.

I'm so sorry you've got these tough decisions to make right now. I'm really praying for you both, that Mike is fully restored and you can begin down that path to expanding your family really soon.
How was the service tonight?

Good choice, babe. I think that the beauty of the FET is the ease of less "stress" of the cycle vs. a full-on IVF cycle (less drugs, too). Considering what is going on with Michael, waiting a wee while would prob. be a very, very wise idea. Thinking, hoping and praying for you guys.

Big love, you. xo

I think this was a good choice my friend. Let this water roll under the bridge first then focus on the other. You guys are so strong together. I am so proud of you for your resolve.
Thinking of you both.

I'm so sorry that you and Michael are in such unknown territory. I wish there was something I could do to make this easier on you both. The decision to postpone your FET must have been a difficult one, but I'm sure it is the right one for you at this time. Thinking about you always.
