thoughts,

MyBigger Brother & MyMama - Cozumel, Mexico December 2009

MyMama & MyDaddy - Christmas 2008

66 and effortlessly fabulous.

She is a breast cancer survivor.

December 9, 2009 marked her sixth year cancer free.

On Saturday morning she found a lump about the size of a nickel in her right breast.

The same breast that her cancer was in before.

Because she is effortlessly fabulous,

she’s taking this in stride.

She called her oncologist right after she found the lump.

She’s being scheduled for an ultrasound & mammogram.

She is in good spirits,

concerned but not afraid.

She does BSE (breast self exams) every time she showers.

THIS is something new.

Something that basically popped up overnight.

MyBrothers & I are falling apart.

We’ve been able to handle MyDaddy’s renal cancer and subsequent renal failure for the past 11 years.

But  MyMama?!?!

She has always been in good health.

Even when she had her lumpectomy and radiation.

She was still the picture of good health.

This is scary!

We’re walking on faith.

If you pray,

please pray for MyMama.

If you chant,

please chant for MyMama.

However you worship, pray, praise……

Whatever you do!

Please keep MyMama in your thoughts and prayers.

My Fabulous Mama!

*UPDATE*

PRAISE GOD & BABY JESUS!

IT’S A FATTY CYST.

IT WILL BE MONITORED,

BUT SHE IS FINE!

WHEW!!

MY FABULOUS MAMA!!

123So I’ve been quiet again.

Not really talking about infertility.

Not talking about how I really feel about infertility.

Not talking about much of anything.

The truth is,

we’re wasting our time doing anything other than IVF.

The truth is,

we can’t afford IVF.

The truth is,

we can afford IVF internationally & could possibly make it happen next year.

The truth is,

I don’t really want to do international IVF.

The truth is,

I think we’re done.

I think we’re done.

It hurts to type that,

but it’s time to be honest.

It hurts to admit it,

but it’s time to be honest.

54 months is a long time.

We should have two children by now.

I’m tired.

I’m tired of hoping,

wishing,

and praying.

I’m tired of jumping at imaginary pregnancy symptoms.

I’m tired of getting my hopes up when my period is late.

I’m tired.

Shug is tired.

We’re tired.

Unless God blesses us with a true miracle,

we probably will not be parents.

Ummm…… yeah,

it’s time to be honest.

Sharing the cake topper on our first anniversary.

Sharing the cake topper on our first anniversary.

Four years ago today we got married.

Three weeks after Hurricane Katrina.

Three weeks after we lost everything.

It was a small,

but perfect ceremony.

Just family and close friends.

We exchanged white gold wedding bands that we purchased  from a Zales outlet for $500.

A year later Shug got me a beautiful wedding set.

As much as I love my rings;

I only wear them on weekends

or on special occasions.

I wear my simple band everyday.

It was purchased with all that we had,

and it’s more precious than anything that I own.

I love him with all that I have.

And he loves me as well.

He’s my heart.

I wish that I could give him what I know he wants.

Prayerfully,

hopefully,

miraculously.

I love you Shug!

Thank you for making me your wife.

Mom & DadMyMama is donating a kidney to MyDaddy!!!

She starts her work up on Tuesday,

and the transplant will take place in about two weeks!

We’re so excited.

MyDaddy had renal cancer in his left kidney,

it was removed in December 1999.

He’s been on dialysis since his right kidney failed in May 2005.

In March 2007,

he started home dialysis.

My mother dialyzes him six days a week.

He’s been on the transplant list for three years.

They celebrated their 45th anniversary on August 22nd.

And now,

he’s getting MyMama’s kidney!

TODAY IS A GOOD DAY!!!

AloneLittle flashes of anger,

have me doubting that we got lucky this month.

I feel the same way I usually do after I ovulate.

Heavy burning uterus,

heavy ovaries,

and PMDD.

Trying to walk on faith here,

but all of this has me filled with…..

DOUBT!
