/ The RE's Muse: A hallmark moment

The RE's Muse

After 4 years of infertility, 2 surgeries, 1 miscarriage, and 19 months of high risk pregnancies, hubby and I now have two little women in our lives--one a toddler, the other not far behind. Buckle your seatbelts, it's gonna be a wild ride.

A hallmark moment

Today is our ninth wedding anniversary and--shout out to Jerry--what a long, strange trip it's been.

Somewhere around the four-year mark, we decided to try for a baby. How were we to know it'd take almost five years, lots of tears, some heartbreak, lots of blood, tests, dildocams, money, and more to achieve this "simple" milestone (foolish naive fertiles we then perceived ourselves to be) -- one so easy that teen girls, crack whores, and SILs do it all the time. It would happen for us just.like.that (snaps fingers). Oh, yes, we were naive indeed.

Fast forward five years: I couldn't have imagined where life would take us, nor what we would undergo along the way. There was good and some bad, each with lots of love and--most importantly--lots of laughs. Years from now, when we're both getting on in years, I have no doubt that he'll still be making me laugh...and I could think of no one else I'd rather be doing that with than A.

He believed in me, in my 'broken' body, in what we were going through and why, and imagined, or perhaps saw, the light at the end of the tunnel. His undying optimism buoyed me when I was at my lowest (even if I did think his optimism was plumb crazy at the time), his shoulder saw me through the roughest of times and he propped me up when I could not stand on my own, both figuratively and literally.

So, for the memories of yesterday, the happiness of today, the promise of tomorrow, and so much more, I have A to thank. I wouldn't be who I am today without him by my side, nor would we be where we are now....
