I have a special nurse who is a huge help. She's this old little lady, and a typical 60 year old nurse who works the night shift. Still wearing the old school white shoes, tights and dress and last night she has pink over coat on. Last night I couldn't bear to look at my journal anymore. I made Joel go to the house and get my Paint Shop Pro cd and a couple font cd's so I can install it on my laptop. He didn't want to leave me alone. Ms. Sally (the nurse) said she could stay with me since she didn't have to rounds for another 3 hours and another nurse could cover her if needed. I'm on a regular floor, not the maternity floor. Joel took almost 5 hours because he couldn't find it and wanted to put up the few baby stuff that we bought over the weekend. She staid with me all but 15 minutes just so she could get her dinner. Ms. Sally shared her dinner with me. It was the best homemade potato pancakes I ever had! We talked a lot. We staid up til 5:30am talking when the sleeping pill finally kicked in. We talked about everything. Her loss of her husband and children. I asked a lot of questions on how she handled the depression and all the anger and if was I feel is normal or not. Tonight she said we'll have another dinner date if I am still up. I am actually looking forward to it. She asked what I was in the mood for and I told her anything but fish so we'll see what she brings.
I'm 26 years old. Married to hubby (29 years old) for 8 years. YIKES! Our Daughter is 5 years old and our Son is 1 years old. We were trying to conceive a 3rd child but we ended up getting a 3rd, 4th and 5th that are on the way. Thanks to a little.. okay A LOT of help from a fertility specialist and taking Clomid and doing IUI's. We live as Green (eco friendly) as we can. Our marriage had it major ups and downs, but we road the waves and smooth sailing now. We've had 7 miscarriages.. YES seven, from 5 weeks pregnant to the the most recent one "Triplet B" Emilie Alyssa at 12 weeks into the pregnancy. Read the "Dreaded About Me Post" for more about me and my family. You can read "Our Infertility In a Nutshell" to get a good idea of what we've been threw in the past 5 years while TTC. The links are right below!
