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.

Hugs to you. I'm sorry the universe keeps dumping on you guys. There really is no "right" or "fair" in these things. Feel free to vent here anytime you need and we will listen.

So sorry to hear about your partner's illness. Hopefully by now she is doing better. And by the way, I'm still really hoping for you that all your dreams of having a child to love will come true. Soon! (Or whenever it's meant to happen.) -Monica

Hi there:
This is not for posting, but rather an inquiry. I’m a reporter at the Baltimore Sun and I’m working on a story about infertility blogs. I see that you haven't posted in a while, but I'm still hoping you're checking here. I'm wondering if you would be willing to answer a few questions about your blog for my story? I can be reached at Drop me a note and we can set something up-- if you’re up for it. Thanks!
