Drumroll please...

I am about to go take my first Lupron shot. I am so excited, although I know I am going to be let down. It is a tiny insulin needle, and I am taking 10 tiny units of it. I guess it is symbolic though. Like the Iditarod in Alaska - they ceremonial start is in Anchorage, although that is not when the actual race starts. It signifies the beginning of something great, rich in tradition, a true competitors sport, something that only the strong can survive. Kind of like IVF. Well this shot is my ceremonial start. The real competition doesn't begin until August 2nd, when I start stims, but today I am letting my body know that my team (David, my RE, and me) aren't giving up without a fight.
