Pifer Life

Count Down With The Pifers

No countdowns at the moment...although it's getting closer to October which means I will get to decorate for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas pretty soon (yeaa!!) :)

Family Updates

Zach
- his knee is great, but please pray for strength throughout the next couple weeks as it's hard on him not being near Poppee during his last days.

Poppee- he is coherent and not in any pain--Please pray his last days are peaceful and comfortable.

Me-I am doing alright! Alot better than Friday--this by far was one of the hardest cycles ever. We invested so much into this cycle, time, emotions, money, and lots of faith...I know and trust that God has his reasonings-but this one was def. a hard one. God has given me the strength to overcome this difficult time and for that I am thankful.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
News

I want to take this time and tell each one of you "THANK YOU"...thank you all for the sweet emails, cards, comments, calls, texts and most importantly prayers. Your support means more than you will ever know!!!

We will not be going forth with another cycle right now. Not because we don't want to, but because it's too expensive to go back to back. It's very hard on us knowing that we won't be able to try again for a little while. We will not be going on a complete "break", as we will continue to try naturally and pray that God blesses us with a true miracle...in the mean time we will be saving and hopefully in a few months we will be able to start this process again.

For those who have asked me to please test just to make sure---I have and with no surprise to me it's a negative. Again, we are ok with this...are hearts our saddened that this wasn't God's time...however he has his reasoning's and we trust in him.

I apologize...I still have purple pictures that I need to add, I am so sorry I have yet to add them--I will do so this week.

Big events over the weekend…

Our weekend consisted in a whole lot of nothing :)
Here is a fast rundown of what we did over the weekend...

It started in tears...and ended in tears!

I cried until my eyes were swollen beyond belief...Zach made me wear this lovely little eye mask thing then tried to make me laugh my calling me a "super hero" (he succeed!)...curling up on the couch...crying some more, but laughing while crying as I wanted to stop but I couldn't and my sweet husband was trying everything possible to make me stop crying...waking up to cinnimon rolls in the oven...laying around the house...heading to the mall to grab a few things only to remember that it was tax free weekend and everyone else decided to go up there...off to eat on the patio of Don Carlos...head to Hollywood Video to rent movies (all my choices-- :) I never get to pick all of the movies!!), home to watch them...curled up again on the couch-yet this time with all three dogs...pass out, wake up...chased each other around the house (literally)...danced in the kitchen (just because)...head to church (spoke straight to me!)...off to eat breakfast, then vist my mom--came home...washed clothes...layed around...had to run to Lowes...got a cherry cheesecake snowcone (so good!)...came home and watched my husband kill about 50 yellow jackets (laughing my rear off, while looking at the backdoor to see him running around in circles spraying the air...)...ate dinner...washed more clothes...set at my computer while Zach did "man work"...got tickled till I was red in the face...soaked in the tub...watched Big Brother (because it's a sin to miss an eposode...ok so I am just that addicted to it!)...sat around and made fun of each other (thats love!) ....and laughed until we cried!
My husband is amazing and I am so thankful for him. This news was just as hard on him as it was me (not to mention the hurt he has in his heart about his Poppee), yet he bent over backwards to do everything possible to make me smile this weekend. So although I am not blessed with a baby this cycle, I was reminded just how much I love my husband and how blessed I am that he loves me! Zach--if your reading this I want you to know that you mean the world to me and I am so thankful to have you in my life! Thank you for being everything I've ever needed and wanted. You definatly are my sunshine on a rainy day! :)

I know that weekend all to well (unfortunately). Each day does get a little better, but I really hope your journey comes to a successful resolution soon.

Total sin to ever miss BB! LOL! Keep your spirits up and love in your heart, it will get better!

I've commented a few times, but I don't think that I've ever mentioned my brother and his wife. Everything about you reminds me of my brother and SIL. I don't know you in life, but I feel like I have come to know you through what you give us on your blog. My brother and his wife had their fist miscarriage 12 years ago. They have had three miscarriages all together and a lot of trouble even concieving at all. They are now in the process of adoption which they aren't even sure is going to work out, but they have more faith in their pinkies than I could ever claim to have on any given day. As much as this infertility problem seems to be a curse, it also seems to be a blessing. The kind of strength and faith that seems to be associated with having a problem that causes you to have no choice but to lean on God is a true gift and one day you will all be gifted with your prize for your patience!! I do continue to keep you in my prayers and I feel certain that you will have that prize soon!! I hope you caught all of that because I'm pretty sure I just rambled my way through it. Lol..oh well hope you have a blessed day!!!

Lauren Kelly said...

Tiffany said...

I was having a very rought morning I read your post and looked down at my "God grant me Serenity" mouse pad. My mood is lifted and I Pray for you and your most definate amazing husband! (that is wonderful how he took such great care of you) I will also keep his poppy in my prayers

Ashley said...

Y'all are so cute and perfect for each other!! Woohoo for fall! I am so excited and you can't forget the fair is in October :). Glad you had a relaxing weekend. Praying for Poppee!

G & H said...

That was so sweet! Husbands are such a wonderful blessing!

BTW I LOVE Big brother too! I missed 5 epsidoes while on vacation and caught up last night ( yes I sat and watched that much tv :) and oh man it was soooo good! who are ya rooting for!

Abbie said...

I am right there with you. I got a negative on Thursday, which is the last medicated cycle we are on until April at the earliest, mostly because of money reasons for us as well. I've heard that infertility can either drive a couple apart or bring them closer together. It sounds like for you, as it is for us, that it is the latter, which is awesome. I, too, am blessed with an amazing husband that dried my tears after I cried very hard. My prayers are with you!

Heather said...

Hey Tiff-

I know you had a hrad weekend, mine was too. I am 9dp3dt, and we are BFN still. My sweetness is so amazing also. Thank God for wonderful supportive husbands! May God be with all of us as we struggle. I understand the money thing. We are feeling it too!
Praying for you!
