Adam was admitted to the hospital on the 14th. He wasn't feeling good at the beginning of the week and luckily had an appointment that Friday. Usually when he gets admitted I have a hard time with it because it messes with plans and life in general. I feel like this time was different. It was an answer to many questions I had about why our IVF cycle kept getting pushed back. If we did it when originally planned to do it the second time then he would have been in the hospital. Imagine that. I am thankful to have received an answer. I am also glad that he will most likely be healthy for the holidays. He's been coming in every 3 months lately so we'll have to see.
IVF update: I started my Lupron injections on Sunday. So far I have not had any side effects but a friend of mine said when she took it the side effects showed up in the second week. Soon I will stop taking the birth control. Then in the beginning of October, I will have another ultrasound. That is all we have scheduled for now. I will try and update on how things are going. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
The Utes won against BYU a couple weeks ago! Wahoo! It was a good game and I was really worried that they weren't going to win. A cool thing that happened while we've been here is that Adam got to meet the current starting quarterback of the Utes! One of Adam's respiratory therapists happens to be his girlfriend and asked him to come up and visit him. I was at the Train concert which was totally worth missing meeting him but I was still bummed I wasn't here. But it was really sweet that he came up here and talk to Adam. Unfortunately, the Utes didn't do too well this last week against Arizona State. I hope they do better against USC!
Let's see, what else has happened. Oh..one of my friends passed away this week. His name is Aaron and he has CF. I meet him when I started working at the Utes and we became friends. He was one of the sweetest people I have meet. I will miss him so much. I hope that they find a cure for this disease. Breathe easy my friend.
We went to Capitol Reef at the beginning of September. I went down with Adam's parents because Adam was SUPPOSED to be working that weekend. He asked if he could have that Saturday off to come down and surprise everyone. We had a blast with his family like always!
One of my coworkers posted a status this morning and said think of 10 things you are thankful for and find ways to show them appreciation! I think with my new motto this would be a great thing to do.
10 things I am thankful for:
-I think I could pray more and read my scriptures.
2. My husband.
-Be a good wife and spend all the time I can with him.
3. My wonderful friends and family.
-I feel like I need to be more attentive to my friends/family. I want to try and spend more time with them or at least call or text them to make sure everything is going ok.
4. The autumn season is upon us.
-Fall is my favorite season and I am not sure how to show it appreciation.
5. My ability to work and make money for my family.
-I think I am going to not complain about work as much and try to be a better employee.
6. My health (although it has kind of been terrible lately).
-Eat healthier and exercise more often.
7. My coworkers.
-Be a good coworker and be someone who is fun and pleasant to work with.
8. Utah football.
-I think I show them appreciation by watching or going to the games and cheering until I have no voice! =)
9. Delicious food.
-Eat it! =)
10. The possibility that we can have children through IVF.
-Be grateful for the people who have helped us through this journey. Infertility is so hard. I never imagined it to be this hard and if you haven't dealt with inferility it is hard to know what someone is going through. I am so thankful to know people who have gone through it or are going through it with me. I need to show them appreciation because it takes a really strong person to deal with this process.
There are so many things to be thankful for and I think some times I get caught up in the terrible things that are going on. I hope that this list will be a reminder for me that there are so many more wonderful things to think about. I hope you will all take a minute to think about 10 things you are thankful for and how we can show those people or things our appreciation.
