A little 'bullet' post...

* I have 'still' been sick...I finally found time to go to the Dr. yesterday, they told me that I most likely had the flu early last week when I was really down and out because it looks like I have a secondary infection right now...(not sinuses, just infection in my chest/throat/nose)... icky-ness! I was given a coratzon shot, z-pak and some pill (I can't think of the name) for my throat. Mornings and nights are the worst for me, I wake up/go to sleep with the scratchiest throat and literally have no voice from 9pm on and don't get it back until about 8am...it's strange! It IS getting better, and I am totally function-able, just have felt crummy...I do feel sooo much better now, still not back to my 100%, but I'm finally starting to feel better!

* We got a much needed new roof on our house, it looks so much better + will help the resale value on our house when we decide to officially put it on the market!!

* Zach is changing positions at work; for those who do not know he works for an environmental company that deposes properly of hazardous waste-he has been in charge of the oil route for about 6 years, Zach wants to eventually move up in the company and the only route he hasn't worked is the parts-washer route, it's a little different. So, although he has amazing customers who will greatly miss him (some he will still see) he is changing positions...his boss told him this is a really smart move because this year they will be looking within to promote within the company...Zach is an excellent employee, very hard worker! He goes in some days as early as 4 and doesn't get off some days as late as 9 (has gotten off later before, but thats not frequent!)...he is very eager to advance within the company, and I hope by making this transition it will lead him down the management path he so deserves!

*I have called a couple infertility clinics in my area, Austin, the one we went to last year defiantly takes my new insurance, so thats really great news. The only disappointing factor here is my 15,000 max coverage could potentially be used with just ONE IVF...I was hoping to get at least 2-3 out of it, but I can't complain too much, one is one more than I've had done, and it may be the one that I need...I had to leave a message for the insurance coordinator to call me back at the other 3 places, maybe they will be a little different...

* My mom had a little procedure done on her throat, they expanded her esophagus (she has problems with this due to where her tumor sits in her brain), it makes it very hard for her to swallow...so that expanded this and took a couple biopsies while in there...we won't get the full reports for about another 7 days...please keep her in your prayers...

*Question for my Illinoisans and Pennsylvanians, can y'all tell me if there is snow on the ground? How long has there been snow on the ground and how long will it last!? Please say another couple weeks :) :) We are planning our roadtrip up north for my birthday to see THE groundhog (can't wait!)...and I am just curious if I will for sure see snow!? :)

Sending all positive thoughts & energy to you and your mum.
I hope you do get to play in the snow on your road trip... I would love it too. We are currently in the middle of the strangest summer, so hot & humid as well as major flooding up north.

I am in Ohio and we just got dumped on last night and unless we have a huge heat wave, it'll probably still be here plus more in a few weeks. We had a 55 degree day on New Years Eve which finally melted everything from the previous month. Have a great trip.

One round of IVF and I'm almost 24 weeks pregnant with twins! Keep hope and have faith (as I know you do)! You are right, one is all it takes!! Exciting, exciting!! Can't wait to follow that journey! If you ever have questions, I'd be glad to answer them if I can!

My wife is just like you, strong and optimistic. We've been busy in our home lately. We have to replace the roof of our house in Omaha. Roofing needs is our primary concern because of the weather we got. With respect to roofing, Omaha is home to trusted and dependable contractors, so my wife is very optimistic that we could complete the task properly.
