Get it while the gettin's good!

We are logged on...YEH! At the hotel computer for now, so hoping our laptop will work as well.

We got back late last night from Jaipur and hit the bed. But not before checking a few emails (thanks for making me cry with your sentimental email Mom...must be the hormones!) and making a few phone calls home to family and check on our baby furgirl Frankie. We were exhausted from all of the activity. Yesterday, we went on another elephant ride (had to get as many in as we could as this is probably the only time in our life we will do this). The driver let me get on up around the elephants neck with him so Gerry could take a photo. At one point we stood next to our elephant and his ears flapped and knocked us both over. AMAZING creatures.

Driving back to the airport after a fun filled day the driver didn't want us to be late for the plane, We zoomed in and out of traffic like a race car. We saw camel after camel sharing the road with us, wild pigs, goats, cows, and even wild monkeys. It was fascinating. So much stimulation all at once it is so hard to take it all in.

Early in the morning I went for a full body massage with sauna treatment. WOW it was incredible and SO relaxing. Later our driver took us to a textile mill where we saw them make and design the cloth and materials that are exported all over the world. We bought pillow cases and when we picked out material for curtains, they made them while we waited and had them delivered to our hotel room. Now that is service. We paid next to nothing for the beautiful material and we will be able to see it everyday. We then went to a gem store and saw where they cut and polished precious gem stones and we even got me a few little gifts to bring home. Gerry says I am spoiled! We will try and add some photos too...hopefully.

Today we are headed back to the clinic for our cycle day 9 ultrasound so we are hoping and praying for more numbers and bigger sizes of follicles. CK our fellow support group member arrived on Tuesday and so we will be going for our ultrasounds together. What fun to share in this wonderful experience. We hear the horns and the drums out on the streets as we type this as today is the start of the 11 day Ganesh festival. Rain or shine these people never stop to celebrate. Should make for some more exciting sights as we venture out into Mumbai (the city of dreams).

Thanks again to all of you who are following and so supportive in our journey.

Looking forward to further updates.

Hi guys,
Hope you can receive messages on your e-mail even though you are not able to transmit. Sounds as though everything is going well and I am so happy to hear that you didn't fall off the elephant or the camel.I wouldn't get up there, OH NO!
I am constantly thinking of you and am keeping the prayers going.It is very hard to know that you have had to go through so much to be a Mom. I just hope and pray that all your dreams come true, as you know how much I love you and you deserve to become a Mom.You will be a great one.I am not leaving you out either Gerry as you will be a great Dad. You both have been such great parents to my baby Frankie.
Come on follicles keep coming.
Lots of Love Forever and Always Mom & Dad XXXXXXOOOOO
P.S. the extra kisses are for my future grand baby.
