Lessons I am learning along the way

The screwed up lesson I am learning is that if scream and cry like a lunatic, it actually gets me somewhere. Tufts has approved another IUI. I am all set to go for next week.

I really have to stop this sort of behavior before a baby is born- or I suspect I am in for some sweet justice/ironic humor. At the very least, I am certainly not making any friends around here. Oh well. Hopefully they are used to the crazy highs and lows that happen to a woman in mourning, a woman obsessed with having a baby.

I'm sorry this has been so hard for you.

Lisa, I've been thinking about you every single day for the past three weeks or so. I keep seeing that image of you standing outside the door to my then-office, all ultra pregnant. I've realized that... you have a giant belly in that vision. I don't think that version of you has happened yet.
Love you.. xoxo

If they aren't used to overly emotional baby-obsessed women, they are in the wroooong business.

I hope the thrombin issue has an easy fix, like just heparin and everything's fine. It would be so nice to have a clear answer!

GOOD! But jesus, it shouldn't be so difficult.

You go girl! Give 'em heck! Glad you're all approved for next week.

Lisa- IT WORKS and BTW it continues to work regardless of your motivation! (ie- if your child is having a rough time transitioning to ...ah let's say - Kingergarten and you want the teachers to step up!).

Seriouly, soooooooooo excited for you. Can't wait to hear!
