Day 21: Telling Min

Monday 7th March 2016

No use in keeping something so important bottled up from someone so important to me: today I told Min that we are undergoing assisted fertility treatment in a bid to give Kingsley a sibling. She was great: understanding, not many questions asked, agreeing that we have to do what we have to do. I love her for her simplistic maturity on matters that really matter.

It all happened organically: we had just met at our rendezvous spot at The Dubai Mall and began planning our hours together knowing we both must be at Dr. Munira’s clinic at 3:30pm. And so the conversation easily started between us considering we had in the past both seen Dr. Munira to help us start a family. I lifted my top to expose a bruised and punctured lower abdomen and with that visual declared to her that we have begun in earnest this new fresh cycle of ICSI.
