Please send some positive, healing vibes to my husband. He is slowly recovering on the couch at home. I’m doubting there will be anything new to watch on Netflix by the time he goes back to work. 🙂 The swelling has gone down, but it’s still got a long ways to go. Yesterday was probably his most painful day. The recovery process makes him feel uncertain about the decision to have surgery. Let’s just say it ain’t a pretty picture right now. I keep telling him everything will be fine once it’s healed.
To give him ample time to recover, we’ve decided to extend our fertility break to 2, maybe even 3 months. We are still meeting with the RE next Monday to discuss next steps.
The break is nice, but just when the waters seem calm, life always slaps you across the face with something else. Translation: More family drama. I’m praying for the peace I was so hoping for during this period, but I know the strength we gain from these experiences is valuable as well.
One of my best friends just shared this link on Facebook: 8 things to remember when everything goes wrong
Yes, Facebook does offer some good – hence the reason I haven’t deleted my account yet. I love the positive, inspirational messages you can find on there.
The advice within the article can definitely be applied to our fertility journeys.
The last part of the article offers this daily TO-DO list:
- Think positively.
- Eat healthy.
- Exercise today.
- Worry less.
- Work hard.
- Laugh often.
- Sleep well.
Starting today, I’m going focus on this and I’m going to challenge my husband to as well.
