Count Dracula

We finally got the call from the doctor with the result from Jareds "count test." Let me back it up real quick and give you some background so you'll have something to refrence to: the average males sperm count is between 10 million and 40 million. With 40-50% motility. (use-able sperm) When Jared was first tested in 2004, his results were 400,000 with less than 5% motility. Quick math will tell you that's less than 20,000 of use-able sperm. In 2006 after going to Dr. Keh and doing serious sesions of acupunture and NAET therapy, his results were 9 million (told you she was a miracle worker) and 5% motility. (That gave us 450,000 good ones to choose from- and from that batch, we got Lennix) Now onto todays results: 2.5 million with 20% motility. YEAH YEAH YEAH!! That means if we had to do IVF today, we would have 500,000 little ones swimming around. This is great news because Jared just started with Dr. Keh again, so I have all the faith in the world that she will be able to do some drastic things. Im excited. Really excited. I feel hope for the first time in a long time.


Sorry for the graphic picture but it was the only one I could find and I was in a hurry!!

my fav was when you guys had to wear the latex gloves and jared had to wear them all day at the pharm and he was all mad because you got to wear yours at home where nobody could see you. oh man, kat and i were laughing all day!

Oh Carly- those days are right around the corner for us again! He does 2 weeks straight acupuncture and then 12 weeks of NAET.(gloves included!) He's such a trooper for doing all this but seriously- he's gotta suck it up- it's not THAT bad right? The best about the gloves at the pharmacy was that he just told people that he was "making stuff in the back." Sick.

You'll have to fill me in on the reason for the gloves later, but for now I have to say, YAY! So excited for you guys- what promising news! Join the multiples club with me :)
