Well it seems that Murphy just couldn't resist the urge to ruin my fun! Frank has been awfully sick the past few days, he's had a fever ranging from 38C to 39.3C for two days!

We went to the dr after the first night that we couldn't break his temp, I've never seen him so sick before, she did some blood test and came back saying that it's a bacterial infection of some sort. The poor man, his fever kept on spiking - it would shoot up, stay up for an hour and break and then the same thing would happen. This went on for two days but now it seems that we've finally managed to get it under control and the antibiotics are finally starting to kick in! I'm worried because he's not really eating and everything that goes in comes out, it's really quite frightening but I'm trying to stop him from getting dehydrated by making sure he's getting lots of fluids.

It does seem like he's finally on the mend but obviously the fever that he had for two days puts a bit of a spanner in the works when it comes to planning our IVF. It's been a year now since our first IVF so I pressume they'd want to do another SA anyway to make sure that all the boys are still doing okay. I'm worried tho that the fever that he's had now will affect our IVF in two months time - any ideas?

I think that I'll mail Dr. V and ask him what he thinks, I know it takes 72 days for sperm to grow and mature so hopefully the fever wouldn't have affected the sperm that was already maturing because if things work out right, we'll need his "contribution" in about 54 days....

Murphy, you mo-fo!

In other news, if any of you have seen the O fairy of late, please send her my way once you finished with her! I'm on CD16 today, temp still low but have had EWCM for the last 3 days so hoepefully somethings gonna happen soon. Frank and I have had to make peace with the fact that there will be no trying on our own this month since he is man down, I'm okay with that would have been nice if by some chance we could have done this ourselves but hey, IVF it is because I'm not putting this off any longer!!
