The meds have been ordered and the cycle has been paid for. The reality that this is all happening is snapping almost audibly into place. To say that we are excited is a gross understatement.

Chance and Apollo leave out tomorrow morning for their two-day trip here. They'll make it into the Savannah area sometime Monday evening.

They're coming over for dinner Tuesday evening. Baked tilapia, corn on the cob, broccoli, and roasted red potatoes are on the menu. Lemon lover's white chocolate cake and/or chocolate chip cookies are for dessert.

Frank and I are going back to Savannah with them Tuesday night. Can you say slumber party in the most teeny-bopper sense of the word? Seriously – we have matching pj's and plan to spend all night talking like a couple of giggly girls. Chance and I will demand that the menfolk keep us fed with a constant flow of incoming ice cream.

Wednesday morning we'll get up early and make the 2.5 hour drive to the clinic. Chance and Apollo have their initial in-house appointments with Dr. Sleepy. Technically, Frank and I don't have to be there. Chance wanted the support and I'm more than happy to provide.

One shot down and hopefully a zillion more to go.

    oh that first shot is always so exciting, no matter how many of those first shots you have done, lol
    can’t wait to be following in your footsteps yet again. This time you will have a prego belly to rub for me!!!

    I don’t think I’ve been so thrilled to see someone inject themselves. I’m just beside myself with excitement and anticipation . . . .eep!

  8. Becky on December 13, 2008 at 9:21 pm

    Dude, I’m with Tash! I’m usually not so thrilled to hear that someone is giving themselves shots! But today, today, my friend, that is AWESOME.

  9. Nancy on December 13, 2008 at 9:48 pm

    Woohoo! Good luck! And isn’t it a teeny bit weird I’m a little ‘jealous’ of the injection? What the hell is wrong with me?

  10. debbie on December 14, 2008 at 1:05 am

    Yay!! So exciting! Have a wonderful visit, the menu sounds fantastic. (I vote for the lemon lover’s cake–if Frank’s up for making it).

  11. Medela on December 14, 2008 at 8:22 am

    you are really a very strong lady, I am completely zero in front of you as far as the strongness is concern, I can never inject myself.

  12. charmedgirl on December 14, 2008 at 10:12 am

    OMG that photo totally gave me chills…

  13. Melanie on December 14, 2008 at 2:24 pm

    WTG!! I’m excited for all of you and looking forward to sharing this with you!!

  14. girlh on December 14, 2008 at 3:26 pm

    and now, cried Max, let the wild rumpus start!

  15. PJ on December 14, 2008 at 8:11 pm

    I’m loving girlh’s comment!!!
    There’s something about getting that box of meds that makes it real! I’ll be reading to see how this story progresses.
    Mmmmmm… Tilapia!!!

  16. Kathy on December 15, 2008 at 12:08 am

    You continue to inspire me Moxie… I am so excited and too hope for you, Chance and Apollo that today’s shot was the first of many that will lead to a beautiful baby! (((HUGS)))

  18. niobe on December 15, 2008 at 12:37 pm

    Wow. Wow. Wow. I want this so much for all of you that it hurts.

    I’m so excited for all of you!!!

  20. Kate on December 15, 2008 at 6:56 pm

    Yay for you all! I’m so glad everything fell in to place. I personally recommend Ben and Jerry’s Oatmeal Cookie Dough ice cream if you’re looking for something special. I love that sh*t.
    Lemon lovers white chocolate cake?!?! Why, I love lemon AND white chocolate! How do you make it?
