I think all the ladies on my reading list have been nominated, so I am not adding any nominations right now...you are all wonderful and I treasure you!!

I heard from Dr. A's office with the results from yesterday's bloodwork...hcg is down to 70...so I get to back next Monday for another stick. I wish I could go on Saturday instead...going to see if that is possible.

My Mom told me a great story from her job yesterday that I want to share with you. My Mom works on the Maternity Ward at a local hospital...while going over one of the charts with an aide it was noted that a patient had 8 pregnancies but only 3 live births (there is a technical term for this but I don't remember what it is). The aide looked at it and said "Wow can you believe her numbers?!?!" My Mom looked at her and said "T, you have no idea what this woman's story is and you cannot judge her based on those numbers. When my daughter has a baby her numbers are going to be 5 and 1." My Mom said T's face just dropped. She apologized and said that my Mom was right - you have no idea what the story is behind the numbers. I was so proud of my Mom for standing up for that patient and saying something to the aide.


  1. I absolutely love your mom. And clearly, she loves you a lot too.

  2. Glad your mom did that...I hate it when ppl are sooo judgmental when they have no clue

  3. Love the story about your mom - especially her faith and confidence in the future: "WHEN my daughter has a baby ...."

    Also, I believe the technical term you're looking for is "one big giant universe-fuck."

  4. Thanks for answering all of the questions~! A House in Belize would be wonderful! :) You sound like your have a great, strong mom!
