Home again

We're back! The trip went pretty well I think. Some highlights for me included:
-Meeting the infertility doctor that will be doing my embryo transfer. He was hilarious. Anyone that could make me laugh while giving me a sonohysterogram is ok by me.
-Seeing the really beautiful part of LA. In case you're wondering, that part is the thin strip in between the tick layer of trash on the ground and the thick blanket of smog in the sky,
-The hotel we stayed in. It was really nice and it was fun to order room service.
-The doctor telling me I was a "golden surrogate" and that he was certain that I would be matched soon.

Some highlights for Jesse included:
-The $36 steak he ordered from room service. I had a few bites and it was the best steak that has ever been cooked. It just melted in your mouth. I want to go back!
-Watching "You, Me and Dupree" on the plane ride out there.

Some lowlights for me included:
-The above mentioned sonohysterogram. That hurt like a son of a bitch, I won't lie.
-A sandwich at the airport that had bread so hard that biting into it made my jaw pop.
-Watching "Broken Bridges" on the plane ride home. That movie was so bad it made me want to punch someone in the face.

Some lowlights for Jesse included:
-Very, very nearly passing out when they took a teeny, tiny bit of blood from him at the doctor's office. I'm sure he'll look back and laugh at that someday. I've already laughed about it. A lot.

All in all, it went well. We won't know anything for sure until after Thanksgiving when all the test results have come back but I'm really not expecting any problems. If it all continues to go forward without a hitch I could expect the transfer to be as soon as January or February. Eek! But for now it's good to be back home with the kids. I was a little suprised that I missed them as much as I did. It was strange being away from Elle especially. They did good though so that's a relief. (Of course, that doesn't mean I'm not looking forward to when I go for the transfer and have to stay at the hotel for several days. A vacation is always nice.)
