a sincere thank you

All I can say is that I am sooo beyond blessed to have such an outpouring of support over the last few days.  I never thought that sharing my experience would cause so many people to share their stories or just their support for what I'm going through.  Not only have my friends and family been so amazing, but the ladies of blogland have also been so wonderful.  I've really learned a lot about people in the last few days.  People that you think would be behind won't always be behind you.  And people that you never thought would be rooting for you, actually are.  I want to sincerely thank each and every one of you who sent a text, called, emailed, read my blog, left a comment, or came to visit me.  So many kind words & nice surprises & gifts.  

my little sis-in-law Delaney came home from Blo-No and brought my a Gotta Have It
Birthday Cake Remix from Coldstone!  YUMMMM!

my bestie Jen brought me over Avojuice in Sweet Tea (hell yeah), Essie All Tied Up, 
Essie Sleek Stick Over the Moon nail applique's and OPI Top Coat & a file.  She's so sweet :)

I'm sure there are people who read my blog (or not) and wonder why I am sharing all of this personal stuff about myself and our lives.  First of all, #idgaf (got it?!) yeah, that's right, I Don't Give A Fuck what anyone thinks about what I write.  And after all of the awesome comments and emails I got today, I feel even more validation that what I'm talking about, people can relate to. Ultimately,  I'm doing it for me, and no one else, but if someone can relate, if someone feels less alone about their situation, than I'm accomplishing more than what I set out to in the first place.   I'll leave this thought with this quote from the oh-so-delicious Johnny Depp...

I spoke with Deena today, Dr. G's nurse, she called to check on me & schedule our next appointment. We are scheduled to go back to Peoria on November 5th to start the next step of this process.  I'm continuing with birth control (skipping a period) until the appointment so that they will have control of my cycle at that time and I can get started on Clomid.  I can't believe how quickly this process is going compared to the slow and arduous two years that we've just gone through.  

So next weekend we go to Galena (hopefully on the bike) with my parents for our anniversary celebrations & the following weekend we are headed to Vegas for Joe's lifelong friends wedding. We also have a settlement conference from our accident next Friday so lots of things going on to occupy the time while we wait for this next big step...loving life & feeling so blessed.  

One other thing, be on the lookout for a new blog layout coming very soon!  I feel like we've turned a new and exciting leaf so I'm going to spruce up the blog a bit, add a pop of color, & a little more excitement to it in the next couple days!  Can't wait to see the finished product! 


  1. I am excited for you. Clomid does great things in your body. I wish you luck. I have thought the same things when I write my blog post. Oh well if you don't like it.....don't read it!

    1. Yes I can't wait to see what is in store for us next!! And I agree, this is my slice of the internet to write about what I want, if you don't like it then don't read it!!

  2. Ive been catching up on all the blogs ive missed and I am so inspired by your positive outlook!! You are one tough little lady elena and im so rooting for you and Joe as ive told you before!! Cant wait for some good news after you start this next process...could be an amazing Christmas present:-)
