The Gift of Life: Part Seven

On April 28, 2013, my parents moved back home. It was bittersweet, leaving behind the friends that they had made but so looking forward to all the memories to be made at home. His transplant journey was far from over though. He would have to continue visiting St Louis for the rest of his life. […]

The Gift of Life: Part Six

The recovery process had started. The transplant program focused on a fast rehabilitation process, with lots of vigorous conditioning, preventing the body from getting used to being in bed and keeping his new lungs in the shape they were in before transplant. He was sitting up in bed just two days after surgery and out […]

The Gift of Life: Part One

Story time! I don’t know that I’ve ever mentioned this on my blog before. I was going to write one post about it, but soon realized that there was way too much back story for it to be in one single post. So I’ll be doing a series instead. Coming up on five years ago […]

Amalia is three weeks old! She’s still doing great! She is starting to outgrow some of her newborn clothes. It depends on the brand, but I’ve noticed that her footless sleepers are getting short and my all time favorite tank top onsie is getting snug – insert cry face emoji here. Her hair is still […]

Cycle2 TTC3 13DPO

I am really surprised. This cycle, too, was a bust. Completely blank BFNs for four straight days. I was shocked. I was sure that we had done our job perfectly this time and that everything was going smoothly. I don’t know what happened. I was doing so good this cycle too. I wasn’t antsy at all […]

Cycle 1 TTC3 6DPO

I am officially in the TWW. Gosh I sure do hate this part. I started my progesterone suppository last night so I’m on dose 2 now. I had some mild twingy pain yesterday so I decided that I would start the prometrium a day early. So far so good. I don’t feel any symptoms yet […]

I’ve Got the Fever

Oh man, guys. I am really surprised that I’ve caught it this early. Two words. Baby fever. I can’t not think about babies. I am overcome with a giddy feeling of joy when I think about babies, see babies, smell babies and hold babies. Babies babies babies…… my pinterest is overflowing with them. I didn’t […]
