Details about our transfer

Yesterday was not at all what I was expecting. I fell asleep fine on Sunday night, I woke up a little earlier than normal on Monday but I wanted to so I could go watch some people redo 14.1 at the gym before we left. I wasn’t feeling anxious or nervous. We left a little later than I wanted and were 11 minutes late (according to my sister who was there long before we were). I was told I had to come with a full bladder so I started drinking water around 8am thinking the fuller the better! By the time I was checked in and changed clothes I was in pain because I was SO full! I was allowed to halfway go to the bathroom. I didn’t think I could…but somehow I was able to. Having my sister there really helped make this a happy moment rather than a scary moment. She set up her phone in the little waiting room we were in and told Kyle and I to get in some selfies with her! I hate taking pictures but I love that she is taking the lead with documenting this process!
Next thing I know we are all walking to the operating room. I get situated on the table and get all strapped in. Everyone in the room was being really great and the mood was pretty calm and light. Kyle sat next to me and Robin stood nearby and filmed. For the most part I felt okay, but when they had to press on my stomach it got pretty uncomfortable because my bladder was so full. I of course started tearing up, not only because I was getting to watch my doctor put these two miracles inside me but also because one of my favorite songs came on Pandora at this time. When he heard the song, Kyle leaned over to me and whispered, “You love this song!” I feel like that was a major sign!
The doctor said everything went great and that it went textbook perfectly. So now we just wait a few weeks and see if this worked! I am on bed rest for 3-4 days and am trying to relax. Luckily the Crossfit Open started last week so every Thursday I can look forward to the workout being released and then on Fridays I can go watch everyone do the workouts! I’m trying to plan small goals to look forward to so the days don’t drag on.
Thank you to everyone who is praying for us and I hope we can share some amazing news in the near future!
