A Funny E-Mail....

What people would say if we were paraplegic instead of infertile...

As soon as you buy a wheelchair, I bet you'll be able to walk again!

You can't use your legs? Boy, I wish I was paralyzed. I get so tired of walking, and if I were paralyzed I wouldn't have to walk anywhere! I could just sit around and relax all day long.

My cousin was paralyzed but she started shaving her legs in the other direction and she could walk again. You should try that.

I guess God just didn't mean for you to be able to walk.

Are you sure you want to be able to walk? It is SUCH hard work!

Oh, I know exactly how you feel, because I have an ingrown toenail.

Sorry, we don't cover treatment for paraplegia, because it's not a life-threatening illness.

So, when are you going to start walking?Oh, I have just the opposite problem. I have to walk everywhere I go!

But don't you want to walk?

You're just trying too hard. Relax and you'll be able to walk.

You're so lucky...think of the money you save on shoes.

I don't know why you're being so selfish. You should at least be happy that *I* can walk.

I hope you don't try those anti-paralyzation drugs. They sometimes make people run too fast and they get hurt.

Look at those people hiking...doesn't that make you want to hike?

Just relax, you'll be walking in no time.

Oh do my legs hurt, I was walking and walking and going up and down the stairs all day.

I broke my leg skiing, and was on crutches for weeks, and was worried I'd have a permanent limp, but I'm 100% healed.

You're being selfish, not coming on the hike with us, and looking at all of my track & field trophies.

Don't complain, you get all the good parking places.

If you just lose weight your legs will work again.

You don't know how to walk? What's wrong with you? Here let a real manshow you how to walk!

You are just trying too hard to walk. Give up, and then you'll walk.

Here, touch my legs, then you'll walk!

Everyone in my family can walk. It must be in the water!

Just take a vacation, and the stress-break will be sure to get you walking!

When _we_ were young we only had to worry about having to walk too much.

And I bet a parapalegic going to a bookstore doesn't find books about paralysis stacked next to all the books on running..."


Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3......

Good News/Bad News. I didn't test positive for APAs. Good because obviously I don't want to have a blood clotting disorder, but bad because it would be an easy treatable problem and a reason why we have failed our last 2 cycles. Anyway, we will electively do the heparin therapy for the first trimester. So no one is allowed to hit me after we do the transfer!! LOL We will also use a different transfer media called "embryo glue". Here is a link to the site if your interested in learning more. We are throwing every trick in the bag at this next transfer, hopefully it will be our last.
