Feeling a little better today...

I always feel better after a good night's sleep.  And minus the fact that I can't sleep through the night without having to go to the bathroom (crazy enlarged ovaries still!!), I felt better this morning.  I am still very much saddened by the news of my grandma's downward turn, but I cannot let fear and sadness get the best of me at such an important time. 
I'm at my inlaws cottage this weekend, and they have seemed kinder than usual.  I don't want sympathy but I'm glad they are recognizing that this is a difficult time for us.  The dog goes crazy up here with all the smells and wildlife so chasing her around keeps me busy.  She is currently stalking a chipmunk and her persistence at the wood pile makes me laugh.  The laughter definitely helps too!
We did get some great news yesterday; they were able to freeze nine embryos.  I am so grateful for this as I know some of my DS friends were not able to get any successfully frozen so I realize what a gift (and a second chance if needed) that this really is!
My very favorite prayer as of late to St. Gerard has been especially comforting to me as he is the patron saint of those desiring motherhood:Good St. Gerard, powerful intercessor before the throne of God, wonder-worker of our day, I call upon you and seek your aid.  You know that our marriage has not as yet been blessed with a child and how much my husband and I desire this gift.  Please present our fervent pleas to the Creator of life from whom all parenthood proceeds and beseech Him to bless us with a child whom we may raise as His child and heir of heaven.
AMEN!  God is great.



There\'s a website that will send you a free St. Gerard medal and will also put your name on a prayer roster for fertility. It\'s one of the top sites on Google if you type in St. Gerard, and the medal comes pretty quickly, (but maybe not before your beta)

AWESOME!!! I can\'t wait to find it. Even if it\'s after my beta, I\'ll take it! Thank you so much!
BTW, DH had a condo when we first got married and we buried the old statue of St. Joseph in a plant in one bedroom, and prayed about it every night, and it sold in 3 weeks. None of the condos around us even got looked at. I am a believer!! Thanks again.
