Wow & K's Penthouse Uterus

Wow is really all I can think to say. When I told J that 78 people commented that they regularly read my blog his response was "wow, did you say 78?" Yep and that doesn't include my non-blogging friends who can't post comments without signing up for a account. I can literally feel the love and positive thoughts flowing our way and it makes me smile. I can not thank you enough for coming out of the shadows to say hello and for following my journey!

It warms my heart to hear that so many of you watched my tribute video to Myles and that it moved you in some small or big way. It is music to my ears to hear you whisper the soft syllables of my son's name and to hear you say that his fight was an inspiration to you. Although I wish that my words did not resonate with so many of you, I am happy that you are able to find comfort in knowing that you are not alone in this struggle. You are all brave women (and men) who face each hurdle with as much grace and dignity as possible. Please don't ever forget that. For those of you who read, but do not know the pain of infertility or babyloss I must say thank you for trying to learn and understand. I wish more people were willing to look into the sad eyes and broken heart of an infertile and attempt to empathize with our daily struggles. For those of you who are following my blog because you are inspired and moved by K's generosity and strength I must tell you I'm right there with you. There isn't a day that goes by when I don't say praises for K and her wonderful, supportive family. K is an amazing, brave woman and a damn good teammate! I am grateful for whatever brought you hear and keeps you coming back. It's an incredible feeling to know that I have a such a strong, supportive army of people surrounding me as I continue to walk through the "flames" in pursuit of our dream.

Um, no I don't mean the smutty kind of when I'm talking about K's uterus (although it did look rather sexy on the ultrasound today), but rather the posh, highrise luxury apartment kind. I joked with K at the beginning of our journey that her uterus is like a penthouse and mine is more like a dilapidated shack. Well today K's uterus maintained its penthouse reputation and looked perfect on the SHG. My RE said that the D&C didn't seem to cause any problems for K's uterus and that we are all clear to go ahead with our cycle in June! We are over the moon and now anxiously await our calendar, which I was assured we'd have by the end of next week. :)

That's great news Niki! AND wow to K's uterus, I like the metaphor, it's cool that your one(ies) will be living it up in style for 9 months or so.
Can I too say that having K in your life is a blessing? To be able to share this journey with a friend, a cousin, someone who is doing it all for love. Excited to follow along in June!
