March Update

Things have been crazy around here! Toby had his 7th eye surgery, which was two surgeries in one. We are keeping our fingers crossed that it works this time. His dr thought there was no scar tissue before the surgery, but when he got in there he found some. The scar tissue has always caused the problems before. We are just praying that since it was so small it won't be a problem. Now we just wait.

Noah has really been into throwing fits lately. It is awful! We have tried time out and it seems to work most of the time. We tell him to go to his room until he is done, and he does. He waits until he calms down and then comes out. We'll see how long this works! He is getting so big. I cannot believe that he will be 2 in less than 2 months! I am not quite ready for that.

As for me, the third round of clomid didn't work (well I guess the clomid worked, b/c I ovulated, but I did not get pregnant). So we are now on round 4. If this one doesn't work, we are going to do one more round before we move on to iui. I am keeping my fingers crossed that it will work before that!

Well I thought things were supposed to go better this year, but it has not happened yet. Yesterday, my parents had to put down their dog Shep. They just lost their other dog Baby in early 2007. Shep was a good, sweet dog that everyone loved. He developed cancer and it was so bad that all of his organs were pushed to one side of his body. I found out that possibly due to the progesterone shot, I have developed cellulitis. It is a fun skin infection. I have to stay on the nastiest antibiotics known to man for 2 days then go back and make sure that it will not have to be surgically opened to get the infection out. Fun times! My papa is having surgery tomorrow, so most of my family is in Houston (the one bit of good news we had is that his surgery is not going to be as bad as we expected). On top of all of this, we are trying to get pregnant. We are hoping everything happens on time, because if not Toby's surgery will interfere with us ttc. I will be so happy when March is over! I am trying to convince Toby to take us on vacation during the first half of spring break. If I don't get away, I may go insane! :)
