This week is a pretty important one in our house. We are leaving for San Antonio tomorrow for Kyle to have surgery. As most of you know this is for fertility purposes and we are hopeful that it will be a turning point in our journey. To be honest it could be THE turning point in this entire journey and that is exciting.
As you all know I have been more than transparent when it comes to this journey but of course there are things that I don't share, that I do feel are personal. I have always tried to find a happy medium between not sharing and oversharing. There will never come a point where I stop sharing because I have been there before and it is not a fun place to be. Sharing our journey has brought me a sense of peace because it has opened my eyes to a community that I had no idea existed.
With any journey you will encounter those who feel that how you are going about things isn't right. Throughout this journey I have had people tell me that running isn't healthy, going on vacations isn't right, or that I am sharing too much. I cannot let this journey consume every aspect of my life because if I do then I will miss out on so many other amazing experiences. We choose to embrace every moment that we have together and that is important to us. When it comes to the depression side of it I have been working very hard to get better, I cannot be afraid to live and I won't let anything stand in the way of that. Everyone's journey is unique and it's important to do what is best for yourself and your situation.
Infertility is all about timing, timing of treatments, timing of blood tests, etc and there will always be waiting involved. No two journeys are alike and ours is unique to us because our circumstances are unique. We are choosing to exhaust every option we possibly can, we have done everything from timed intercourse to IUI and those were experiences that have given us a lot of information. Again, these are choices that we have made that have been the best for us.
I will likely be somewhat off the grid this week taking care of Kyle and focusing on this very important step in our journey. We are hopeful that this is the beginning of something amazing.
I hope you all have a very wonderful week!
