Roll Call

  1. Received the results from the morphology.  My husbands sperm is 1% out of the normal range and because of that they have decided they want to do a sperm wash to weed out the bad and keep the good.
  2. With that said, the nurse said that the dr. would like to go ahead with an IUI.
  3. Drugs were prescribed and I picked them up.  Tamoxifen, three pills daily for days 3 - 7 of my cycle.  HCG shot to be given on the day of my ultrasound or a few days following at home.
  4. I have an appointment scheduled for an internal ultrasound on March 25th.
  5. From there an IUI would be done 36 hours following the injection of the HCG.

I've been taking the Tamoxifen for 2 days now and you wouldn't know it, unlike Clomid.  The side effects that I experienced with Clomid were just through the roof.  With Tamoxifen I feel like my self, I'm acting like myself, my boobs are not sore and  I don't feel off at all.  It's amazing what a difference this medicine is doing!

So, what does the outcome look like?  Well the nurse indicated that We could potentially do this IUI and be pregnant in this one cycle.  There isn't really anything standing in our way.  We are lucky to have a small obstacle to overcome and it's something that the dr. feels very comfortable in saying that it should be an easy fix.

What am I feeling?  Well initially, I was a little freaked out because our insurance doesn't cover this procedure.  After I worked through some things, I have found myself  completely over joyed with the idea of potentially being pregnant THIS month!  This reality is still a little surreal but it could be the future and with that, I'm thankful and grateful!

The goods...

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
