This morning Rebecca and I returned to Dr. Danzers office, for another round of IVF. Of our 13 original fertilized follicles, we are down to 3. We decided to thaw out, and implant the two healthiest, and our Doc picked these two:
Good looking pair, huh? Well Danzer thinks so. And after about five years of sex, specialists, surgeries, blood samples, not to mention test tubes, time tables, follicles and freezers, it all came down to one moment. Five or six of us in a room, Rebecca in her paper gown, Danzer with his scrubs and headlamp on, and we are all just waiting.. Suddenly a nurse barges in elevating a large goofy floppy syringe. She checks the label, and then Rebecca's wrist band, and hands it to Danzer.
Within 30 seconds he has found 'tranquility base' and the 2 follicles take their first steps on the planet Rebecca. Soon every one exits, leaving Rebecca and I, fingers crossed, staring at some bland photo of a wheat field.
