Whirlwind of a week

I feel like I've been sucked up into a twister. I'm going in four different directions at once. All the roles I play each day is a lot! I'm really ready to have a relaxing week and just chill! I have this time right now because my youngest is asleep and the oldest is watching Calliou having a snack. Phew! *wipes brow*

My Mom is doing better. She is in alot of pain. She had an infection creep up in the cavity where the hernia was and had to sent to the hospital today for an IV bag of antibiotics and some monitoring. She was sent home a couple hours later when the tests came back with no bacterial infection, or something like that. She just had a pussy incision site where the catheter was draining the cavity. The doctor was also concerned about the color of the drainage. Anyway-gross and TMI, I'm sure, but she's slowly getting better. She still hurts and it's hard for her to walk, but she will get there.

I just did IUI Numero cinco and it was a bomb. Bummed about that! We will keep on trying, but I'm about ready to count my blessings and give up. We agreed that nine tries would be our tops and after that we'd discuss other options or just living with our two children we are already so blessed to have. You can read more about my cycles and this stuff at my TTC blog. Most of you have the link. Email me if not.

Jacob will be four next month on the 18th. He is really excited about that. He starts MDO preschool in September at our church. He is growing up too fast. I think he teaches me something everyday. He's so smart!

Joshua will be two on July 5th. He's my little firecracker. He's full of trouble, that boy. He's always into something. He seriously cracks me up and leaves a permagrin on my face just looking at him.

All in all, we're doing good! Can't complain too much. It's just been a busy year for us. I hope things calm down eventually and I'm not running around as much as I am now. We shall see. Maybe the heat of the summer will slow me down. Nah!!

I'm glad your mom is doing okay...I hope she is in less pain soon, too.

Sorry about the failed IUI. It does suck...even if you already have kids, it doesn't stop the wanting. It makes the not having another a bit easier becuase you do count your blessings, but still, it's no fun. I hope that it works out for you, though!
