The reality of infertility, IVF and donor eggs

When It Rains It Pours!

As if we haven’t had to deal with enough death lately- Mike’s dad died yesterday.  He had a sudden heart attack on Wed. and the paramedics had a hard time reviving him.  I guess there wasn’t enough oxygen getting to his brain because he was pretty much brain-dead by the time he got to the hospital.  It hadn’t been sick and there is no family history of heart disease.   He only had 1 artery that was 70% blocked, which when it comes to heart attacks isn’t that bad.  They put him on life support but there really was no hope of recovering.  We removed the life support yesterday and thankfully he died peacefully within minutes.  Honestly I feel like his soul left his body sometime on Wed or Thurs and it was just the machines keeping him “alive” these past few days.  I feel so bad for Mike- he can’t catch a break.
