Thank you to all of you who prayed for our IUI yesterday. It went very, very well. We were almost completely free from anxiety during both the “preparation” and the procedure. Aaron’s counts basically tripled from the numbers in the past. As a result, our attitudes have shifted from expecting next to nothing out of this cycle to cautious optimism that it might actually be a success. We really pray that it is so. In the meantime, we are seeking to set our minds on the Spirit rather than on the possibility of conception, because “to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace” (Rom. 8:6). Who doesn’t want life and peace?
Next medical step: a progesterone check on Monday.
Coming this week on the blog (schedule permitting): thoughts on God’s word.
