Isaiah 40:31

Just dawned on me...

The title of my blog is outdated. The title of my blog is also the URL. So do I keep on going with the "BEFORE there were more" thing, or now move on to something else? Its hard to say goodbye to the past.
I have 2 good friends that are going through dIUI now. They just got another negative today. It breaks my heart to think of them hurting, just as we hurt. I want to open my brain and spill out the vast amount of knowledge and azzvice about all this I can. But I think the thing thats so rough with all this is that for what I've learned about this process, you have to learn it on your own. No matter how hard I try, I can't spare them the pain that is involved in this, and it hurts. Some parts of life are just meant to be lived, whether its good or bad, you have to live through it. I think this will be true as I watch my son grow up. Im going to want to shield him from so much, but he's got to have the good with the bad experiences in life.
When I talk with my friends about their experience, I start using the jargon that IFers use and it all comes flooding back. Its not something that I can really leave behind, just something I carry with me. Im still the infertile woman that started this blog, I've just been blessed with a child.

Life and Hospitalization

Hey Gang,
Quick note, I think my account was hacked. But I think its okay now... we shall see. Just getting back to my reader, getting ALL my subscriptions back in order.
HM is doing well. Since my last post, 2 months ago, we've had various colds and our first GI bug over Easter weekend. That I got and it just wasn't pretty at our household. HM ended up going to the hospital for fluids for a few days. His eating has picked back up and Im hoping to have some smooth days ahead. I keep seeing everyone's cute Easter pics, but alas, for my child's first Easter, I have none. NO pictures of the "antenna" IV line hanging out of his head, too painful to remember. Im pretty sad about it all. SO Im hoping that I can at least get some good spring type pictures in the next few gorgeous days outside in his new outfit.
HM is now 6 months old, taking over the household. He is pulling up from a sitting to standing position. He does this about 1000 times a day. He is so proud of this accomplishment. He hates being on his tummy or his back, so standing and sitting are good positions. I believe he will walk before crawling. If I put him on his tummy, he flips over every time. Just not interested.
Thats all for now. Hopefully, I'll have some good pictures to post soon.
