I have the nicest RE

1 Comment

One year ago today E and I went in for our third and final shot at an IUI and we hoped with everything that we had that it would work. I can not believe it was a whole year ago! I decided to send our RE an update as he made me promise to do so and I just haven’t had the time. I really wasn’t expecting him to write me back but low and behold he did!! I kept it short and sweet and sent the following:

Hi Dr. M,

I hope all is well with you! It has been one year to
the day that I had my third IUI that turned out to be successful! I
just wanted to give you an update on me and our baby boy.

I had a picture perfect pregnancy and went into labor on my due date!
Grant Hugh was born the following day, August 30th, at 5:52am. He
weighed in at 8 pounds 8 ounces and 20 inches long and was absolutely
perfect. I am loving life being a mom and I have you to thank for it.
I can’t express how much I appreciate all your help and guidance.

I attached a few pictures for you as well.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday season!!

This is what he sent back:

Oh my gosh.  He has the cutest dimples.  No way I could pick a favorite out of all the picture.  You are so kind to include me in on this joyous occurrence.  All of us send you our heartfelt congratulations.  Please come visit.

I really enjoyed having him as a doctor and was sad when I was released to my actual OB. When/if we try for number 2, we will for sure be going back to see him!!

One thought on “I have the nicest RE

  1. That is so sweet. I was also surprised to get a letter from my husband’s urologist (who helped us with MFI) after sending him a photo Christmas card last year. It is so nice to find those drs that really truly do care. 🙂 I am glad you have one.
