The first night in the hospital involved intense itching (from the antibiotic that I was given) and a blood transfusion -- which I was not happy about, although I could barely articulate why.
I didn't expect to still be childless, one year later. And I am trying not to dwell on the disappointment.
I made plans, and God did laugh.
But He also has lead us down a new path.
Thank you again for all of you support and prayers. One day, I hope soon, I will be able to look back and see why our Lord has chosen this particular road for us.
