ABC News Segment

Here it is... the link to watch my interview with Houston ABC News... and for those of you who are curious, the answer to your question is no, I didn't cut my hair short... I'm now bald and sporting a spunky wig :)

I'm still in awe of God's provision in this story. My first consultation with Dr. Timothy Hickman was in July... at that time there had never been a successful pregnancy in Texas from frozen eggs (which is different than frozen embryos). However, just 4 days prior to my appointment Dr. Hickman had started a clinical trial using a new technique on a patient named Ivonne Pena that showed promise... fast forward to current day and as you will see in the news segment she is pregnant with twins! This is the first time this has ever happened in Texas... and I am SO grateful that the technique was available.

I had 17 eggs successfully frozen in September... I'm the first cancer patient in Texas to use this new technique. So, now we wait until I'm finished with all of my treatment which includes 5 years on Tamoxifen... and we watch with great anticipation for Mr. Wonderful to come into my life. :)
