I found a distraction (and not one I recommend) to thinking, worrying, plotting, researching, and overall obsessing with fertility issues: a natural disaster. I live in San Diego County and we've been under siege by wildfires since Sunday. DH and I (and our pets) have evacuated to a relative who lives in a safer area. Our house is ok now but the fire isn't over yet so we are watching everything very closely.

That being said, I haven't thought much about my surgery, my fertility issues, and even the fact that in the middle of all this, AF arrived on cd 22 (what??). Normally you'd get a whole post about cd 22 and just how wrong it is for AF to start that early. Something ain't right.

But, that will all have to wait. There are bigger issues going on here now.

I was tagged by Chris and I promise to respond when I am in the right mindset. (I'm not ignoring it).

I hope everyone is well. Pray for the wind to die down.

Until almost 3 years ago I lived in Orange County so I remember the fires well. It is such a scary and uncertain time and I am praying for you and your family.

Oh, and it looks like I may be out of luck on the donor embryo thing as there are availability issues. Now I don't know where to turn ...

Wow, I am so sorry for you that you had to leave your house. I hope it all works out ok and the wind blows away all of your troubles.

I hope you are doing ok, and that you can go back to a safe and sound home.
