next time

written 08.03.09

Called the RE today to see what my options could be if I decide to not do another IUI but would like a little assistance (both financially & medically). My nurse called me back with a little confusion, which I was anticipating... I don't want treatment for free and by the sound of her tone, you would've thought that I was asking for such. I honestly called to see if they would let us take Clomid without doing another IUI.

She said that they don't let us just take Clomid without an ultrasound, at the least. So my options are to get my drugs needed (Clomid & the HcG shot) from an apothecary shop in town and just do the Clomid, ultrasound and trigger shot from their end. Then they will just have us time up intercourse at home without the Sperm wash/IUI. This will save us $350.00+.

Right now, we're 5 days into our cycle so this option will have to wait until the next time around. We're thinking that if it doesn't happen this time around that we'll move forward with this option. We're still hopeful this cycle will work on our own...

Keep your fingers crossed please and if you are into it... say some prayers for us too!

Thank you for always being so kind and supportive.

wowweee $350,000!! I'd say that's a lot of money to save.

Hey--on a serious note, I am praying you get your little prize at the end of this.

Not $350,000, just $350.00 + $180 for the sperm wash. :)

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 …
