At Least We have our Miracle: A Story of Infertility

Watching "Old MacDonald Had a Farm"

Being tickled by Daddy

Hi Mom and Dad! I got all dirty on the front porch!

After a long conversation about the test results...(my own rendition of the conversation):

Doctor: "well...from here we can try infertility treatment."

Me: "Infertility? But, I had a baby. I want eight babies. I want them all by age 32, and I don't want to wait any longer."

Doctor: "Well, we could try infertility treatment."

Me: "Does my insurance cover it? How much does it cost?"

Doctor: "I'm not sure if they cover it. It's expensive (hundreds to thousands of dollars expensive...)"

Me: " wow. wow. wow. But Doctor, everyone I know is pregnant. My sisters-in-law are
pregnant. MY friends are pregnant. This lady is stealing all of the rest of the world's babies. "

Doctor: "We can try infertility treatment."


Brother (had a baby after me, having another one before me): "Sis, I'm sorry. I know I can't fix it, but at least you have your Lincoln. He is your miracle baby."
Me (lying out my teeth): "Yeah, I am fine."
Me (no longer lying): "At least we have our Lincoln. He is a miracle."

One down, two to go!

We have made it through our first year of Law School....actually we have made it through David's first year of Law School, and we actually haven't made it until tomorrow at about 4:30 p.m. The first year wasn't as bad as all of those horror stories people told us. The hardest part was during both semesters at finals time. David has been at the Law Library from about 9:00a.m. until 11 p.m. or midnight! Lincoln misses his daddy and I miss my husband, but we know this will all be worth it in the end!
While David has been studying, I have learned how to mow the lawn--what great fun! Also, our mudroom is now painted and tiled. And, our fence in the backyard is now white instead of brown! Lincoln and I have been to almost all the different parks in Lincoln and the zoo numerous times a week. We have stayed busy, and we have already begun the annual farmer's tan!
We have been productive waiting for our daddy to finish finals! We can't wait for Jack Bauer to figure things out...again, for the poor people LOST on the island to figure out the mystery, for Rory Gilmore to decide what she wants to do with her life, for George to fess up to Callie about Izzie, for Jim to imitate Dwight every week, for someone other than Charla and Mirna to win the AMAZING RACE, for Alex to get back in on the good side of the other remaining SURVIVORs, and for Andy Baldwin to pick his bride! Yes, we have been very productive!
COME HOME DARLING! we miss you.
