This week is already off to a better start than last week when I was feeling off, and I feel like I'm back on schedule. For starters, LOST is new tonight. By the time I finish the new episode, it will be bedtime...and then it will be tomorrow...which means that I finally get to see the baby again. I admit that I woke up this morning with the "Tomorrow" song from Little Orphan Annie in my head...can you tell that I'm anxious?
As I write this, I think I'm continuing to feel (what could be) the baby moving around, so I'm hoping that everything will go wonderfully tomorrow. But I admit that part of me is still a bit nervous. As I've shared plenty of times before, I'm acutely aware of the fragility of life. I realize that anything can happen, and I have to accept that it is beyond my control, and have faith that God has an amazing plan for me. I just pray that His plan includes bringing this child home with us in September.
I really appreciate everyone's supportive comments from yesterday, and all of the prayers that are being said for us as we look forward to the anatomy scan tomorrow. Our appointment is at 2:30 pm (Arizona time), and the plan is to stay in town to go out to dinner afterwards to celebrate. So bear with me, and trust that it's a "good thing" if I'm not able to post right away...but will as soon as I get a chance.
Today's blessing was the chance to reconnect with a friend and former colleague who I haven't seen in about five years. In fact, many of you may know her as well--at least through her Busted Plumbing blog. Yes, I know the fabulous Kate (like, in real life), and I can attest to the fact that she really is as genuine, determined, hilarious, and strong as she comes across to be in her blog (perhaps even more so). I am very proud of Kate for all that she has done to bring attention to the infertility struggles that so many of us face. If you haven't checked out her blog yet, I strongly encourage you to do so. It's always great for a good laugh (yes, she has found ways to continue to find humor, even while struggling with loss and infertility) and a valuable perspective on life (and all that comes with it). I'm blessed to call Kate a friend, and I am so appreciative of the work that she does through sharing her story.
