letters, 2

(IUI #4)

Day 2 - Saturday 01.16.10:

Activities: Sean to a Blue Jackets game, stopped by my mom's house, visited with my friend Lauren at Starbucks, Dominos for dinner and laundry at home.

Day 3 - Sunday 01.17.10:

Activities: Church with my family, lunch & ceremony after church, relaxing at home and dinner with my in-laws at our house.

Follistim, 1st dosage: 75 units given at 8:38pm. It went in fine. My husband supervised and made me a little nervous at first. No one likes shots and I especially don't like them. Now I'm having to give myself 5 shots in the next couple of weeks so it should get better soon. I bled a little when I was done with the shot but it felt fine.

Day 4 - Monday 01.18.10:

How do I feel after first dosage of Follistim (75 units)?

{written at 8:30am}I didn't feel anything. I still don't. I didn't have any pain, I didn't feel loopy, I didn't have soreness anywhere, I didn't have any bloating, lack of appetite, or back pain. And as one person said, I didn't even have stingy following the infection. So far so good and I couldn't be happier.

{written at 3pm} I have a mild headach that could be a result of the Follistim, or could just be from everyday work stress. Either way, I just wanted to note it.

Activities: Work. Sean didn't have work, must be nice... Picked up retainer from dentist. {Yes, I'm 27 years old and I'll be wearing a retainer. (More on that later.)} Ran. Started packing for my ski trip/friend's bachelorette party this coming weekend. Picked up dinner on the way home {Panera Bread}.

Read online about success rates with follistim & iui's... feeling really positive.
Follistim, 2nd dosage: 75 units given at 8:30pm under the supervision of my dh. It went so smoothly. I've got this down pat! I didn't bleed either!

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 …
