11/11/11-Happy Wish Day!

11/11/11 seems to be a day full of babies being brought into the world and a day full of new beginnings. Happy Veteran's Day and Happy Make a Wish Day. I'm sorry that I have been gone for so long from my blog. I'm trying to catch up with all of you. Some of you have received wonderful news. My life changed and took a new direction in August and time has just flown away from me. I can't believe it is already November. In August, my best friend had to have a heart transplant at the age of thirty-seven. I learned a lot about the body and it's amazing strength. She is doing well and will be able to see her five year old son grow up due to advances in medicine and a loving individual and family who was strong enough to make a decision to leave their organs to others. As a side note, I signed up to be a organ donor recently. I'm hoping to live a long, long time but as I've learned with my struggle with infertility, no one knows what the future holds, there are no guarantees. In August, I also started two new jobs. I'm teaching at a community college and a local university. Both jobs are part time but I'm happy to have my foot in the door and I absolutely love teaching. It's a great feeling to feel like I'm actually doing what I was meant to do. Everything has been flowing easily but I have to admit at times the workload has been overwhelming. I don't care what anyone says teaching is a lot of work. I'm also still working part time as a career counselor. Yes, I am working three jobs and it has been crazy. My social life, my fertility treatments and my writing has all been put on hold. But for some reason I'm okay with this, I just keep trying to focus on the big picture. I've been able to make a bump in our debt and I finally feel ready to move forward. This weekend I'm taking some well deserved time off, drinking a glass of wine, going on a date with mu husband and trying to catch up on all of your blogs! Next week back to the fertility doctor and also time to get serious about adoption. I feel peaceful at least for the moment. I feel confident that we eventually will become parents and that I will one day become a mother! For now, I'm still wishing for my miracle and wishing the same for all of you no matter where you are in your journey!

  5. I wanted to message you this, but I can't figure out how. Anywho, I wanted to let you know about the clinical trial I'm in, as it's for women with unexplained infertility. It's called the AMIGOS trial, and it's being conducted both at UofM and Wayne State. If you go to clinicaltrials.gov you can find out more info. Or just ask, I'd be happy to answe any questions I can. Someone told me about it, and I'm grateful they did, as it's made it possible for us to get some more testing and 4 medicated IUI cycles at no cost. I hope you don't mind me leaving this as a comment. :)
