Work, Life, and Love

I’ve been back to work for a week now.  I am finally almost back to normal.  I would say 99%.  Every now and again if I move the wrong the way the boys give me a little reminder of what they went through.  I would say this is the official start of the doctor free summer.  Nothing to do, but sit back relax and heal.  No appointments, no cups to fill, no blood tests, no dropping the drawers, or manhandling of the boys.  (The last of which I am very happy about.)  This will however, not be a infertility free summer.  Regardless of how hard Jess and I try, and knowing that  there is nothing we can do till October,  there is no way to forget the fact that I am spermally challenged!  It stays with us everyday.  Some days we joke about it, and others we hurt.  Our roller coaster ride of infertility has had more ups than downs lately.  We both try to stay positive, and when things do get bad, we remind each other that we are in this together.  We chose to be together before infertility.  In good times and bad, sickness and health, till death do us part!  I look at infertility as a bump in the road of our lives together.  We haven’t figured out how to get over it yet, but the ride up to it has made us stronger as a couple.  We WILL get over the bump!  It might not be the outcome that we wish for, but dammit, we Will get over the bump together!!   

I Love You Jess, and I couldn’t do this without you!!

    IF is crap but I’m so relieved that I have such a great partner dealing with it with me. This is such a sweet post!

    I came across this great quote that sums up what “we” (couples dealing with infertility) should take to heart. I would love to give credit to whomever wrote it, but I can’t find who did. This sums it all up!

    My husband and I are also dealing with an MFI diagnosis and are going through IVF with ICSI now. It is so refreshing to read about the struggle from a male perspective. Thanks for sharing your journey with the blogger community. I wish my husband would blog, but sadly he doesn’t share his emotions even in cyberspace. Best of luck to you and your wife. I hope that this fall I will be reasing some great news from you.
