We got back to Memphis around 5:30 this afternoon, having started the day with a wake-up call at 8:15 this morning.
The details are more than I'm willing to explore right now. It's been a long day of talking and driving, and I want to lose myself in wrapping paper. What I will say is that I'm not going to play surrogate; it's too expensive and complicated. I will also say that the IVF package runs about $8,800... and the medications start at about $4,000 but some can be found on Craigslist.
Heather and I have both been anxious, sad, or angry-- or some combination thereof-- for the past ten hours, and I can't imagine what this will feel like later in the process. We had lunch at Denny's.
