My Ticker

And the hits just keep on coming...

Did anyone watch the TV show the Gilmore Girls? It is my favorte show, minus the craptastic season 7, in which they got rid of the main writers, creator and directors. The title of this entry is from an episode in season 1.

About a week and a half ago, My Love got pancreatitis caused by gallstones... For crying out loud, come on!! It took multiple doctor's visits, an ER visit, tons of blood work, lots of pain medicine, a CT Scan, and an MRI to get a diagnosis. It has pretty much immobilized her. She is starting to do better, but VERY slowly. We will find out in a day or so if her Amalase and Lipase levels are dropping back to normal. Those are the enzymes that break down fat and protien. She is on a modified diet where she can not eat fat or protien... That leaves prety much bread and applesause. Although, I did find a "butter" that is fat free and protien free. It is better than dry toast...

Am I a terrible person for being tired of taking care of everything? I'm so tired.

If I could just find a way to win a few million dollars, all my problems would be solved... :)

I told you updates would be depressing... You have been warned.

I'm still here

I had envisioned this blog to be about my pregnancy journey. I know that it is a TTC blog, but I really thought I'd be pregnant by now. If you want to know what was in my heart of hearts, I really thought I'd have a newborn baby by now. We are on hold until at least September, and this is if life picks up soon and things turn around. I'm sorry, I am trying to be more positive, I should have said, when life picks up VERY soon and hopefully things have already started to turn around. I just can't see it yet be cause I am in the middle of it all.

My love lost her job suddenly a few months ago. Being a mostly one income houshold is hard, and affirms for me that I will work after I have our baby. (I always thought I would.) Unemployment adds very little to the mix, financially.

I saw my acupuncturist and I am really going to work on putting postive energy out in the world. I imagine updates will be spotty.
