Father's Day

Oh, Father's Day Smather's Day.  Yet another year that my crappy body doesn't allow my husband to be a father.  Hopefully the huge bottle of bourbon from the dogs helps to take the sting out of it for him.  Better than an ugly tie - maybe.

I had an OB/gyn once tell me that I had PMDD.  I don't believe him.  He must've caught me on a bad day or something.  I'm really just a crazy, emotional, psychotic bitch no matter what time of the month it is.

IF-Free Zone

I oftentimes finding myself in a debate with my own self:
"Do I post _____ on my FR blog or on our blog?"
"Should _____ be on my FR blog?"  
 "Nah, maybe I should post _____ on our blog instead."  
"I shouldn't post _____ on our blog.  Someone might be uncomfortable (gasp!)."
               "Should I post this on any blog or just shut up?"

Not much (okay, nothing) is happening in our IF journey right now other than some discussions, so I haven't had much to say anyway.  Well, thanks to the awesome Keiko, she gave me the reminder that I can post whatever I want, wherever I want, whenever I want.  She has an "IF-Free Zone" label on her blog, and I'm going to so the same.  Her explanation is better than I could share, so give it a read.

Sometimes it gets old having to talk about IF and listening about IF all the time.  Thanks, Keiko!

Prayers Needed

Your prayers are needed for the daughter of a fellow infertile. I "met" Lindsey on an online infertility forum a couple of years ago when becoming a family was simply a dream for both of us. The dream that Lindsey and her husband, Alex, had finally came true with the birth of their pretty daughter Kate a little over nine months ago.

Precious little Kate was diagnosed on Monday with Congenital Amegakaryocytic Thrombocytopenia, a failure in the genetic makeup of her bone marrow.  She is going to require a complete bone marrow transplant ASAP. This would undoubtedly shatter any parents to the core, but Lindsey & Alex are prepared for battle to help their daughter.

Infertility sucks.  For many, the pain is eased into joy with the birth of a child.  But to overcome IF and then find yourself in yet another battle - one that involves the life of your child? That's beyond unfair.

More information and details will be coming on Lindsey & Alex's blog, but you can begin by including Kate in your fervent prayers. Share her story with you family, friends, and church groups. Ask them to pray. Let us blanket this family in prayer for as long as they need it. You and others you know can register with the National Marrow Donor Program. Help however you feel led, but let's all do something.

Include this button on your blog, and ask your readers to pray.
