i’m alive, i promise…

hello friends… the volume of ”are you ok” emails is picking up… i realize it has been FOREVER since i last posted…

i am ok… i am πŸ™‚ and things move slow and that is hard.

i am working on my resume – it is close to ready for the unveiling – i mean ready to send to potential employers… i have to give a special shout out to my fabulous pal and lifesaver at word to your mother(s). with out her help my resume would still be a puddle of words at the bottom of a crumpled page.

we are moving forward with our ivf plan as well…

on march 18th, two days after i got my period, i was put on 10 units of lupron a day (shots) to suppress my ovaries. if dakota had gotten her period before me or to close to when i got mine, she would have gone on birth control till i was ”ready”… she got her period right at the time she would have been coming off the birth control (3/30) so she got to skip that part.

now she will go through the stimulation process for about two weeks and i will be doing estrogen (patches and pills? and maybe lower doses of lupron?) to build my lining and then sometime during the week of 4/14 – (the first of two weeks that i produce big meetings) they will do the retrieval from dakota and 3 – 5 days later they will put a couple embryos in me.

if i were not SO consumed by the fact that i have to produce big meetings with my production team having been ripped apart and the management having striped me and the other producer of our decision making powers – and – the fact that when the meetings are all over i will not have a job… i would be SUPER excited. the thought of carrying my sweetie’s child, as you all know, is a thought that brings me GREAT JOY.

well, i feel more joyous just typing that… i guess i will have to spend more time over the next few weeks thinking about the embryos coming my way if i am to have joy in this time of laid-off-ness…

more later, just thought if i didn’t write, you all might send a posse out after me to make sure i was not dead in a ditch somewhere πŸ˜‰

mulberry, signing off for now
