Our Infertility Adoption Story- There's No Such Thing As An Unwanted Child or Pregnancy

Quick Update

I had my ultrasound this morning and it confirmed that I do have a cyst on my left ovary about 4cm.  It's still weird to me that it's on my left side since it's my right side where I feel so much discomfort.  The tech said I have the typical PCOS cysts on both ovaries (lots of little cysts) and then there's the larger one on the left.  Dr Su called me by lunchtime with the results and said we would not be able to do clomid again until the cyst goes down in size.  He suggested that if we want to do clomid again that I see him in the beginning of November (in about 5 weeks) to see how things are at that time.  He basically said this will give me time to "cycle out".  So more waiting...
I've decided that I AM going to ask him about the ovarian drilling procedure.  I want to know how successful, how dangerous, has HE ever actually done one, and is it something that he would recommend as treatment for my PCOS/lack of ovulating problems. 
In the mean time, I am prepping for the fostering/adoption process (again, SHOULD that be the route we take).  Getting a little more organized is a necessity for me whether we adopt or not.  I actually spent today trying to clean out and organize a little. I'm shredding so much paper that it looks like Enron around here.   It's amazing to me how much crap I have around my house.  (Did I mention I have a slight hoarding problem?)  I'm not "careful, you'll find a dead animal carcass" bad but I do need to get a handle on this problem. So there's the update.
I'd also like to thank each person who reads this for their support, love, kind words and prayers.  I appreciate it more than I can say.

Thank you!
