Mook pleads to you all

Hello blog-o-sphere. Two posts in one week...I know, I know...Please hold all applause until the end of my presentation plea. This is merely a begging of mercy from me, the husband not your usual attempt at comic relief.

As you all know by now, JJ is in her resting state after the current IVF with ICSI. As most of you know by now JJ is self admittedly a worry wart. She has more than enough reason to show concern with our current point of life (and I am right there with her). I can not however get enough help in easing her mind.

I assure JJ that the "Planets" (cause there's nine! Pluto counts damnit!), are in the best possible place they can be in. These doctors know what it is, that they do. I jokingly bring up the evidence of me not being able to keep up with a pair of socks much less nine microscopic embryos, so its a good thing they didn't send them home in a cooler. She doesn't quite find the humor in my speech. So, I digest. (A little Family Guy there...anyone? anyone?)

I have asked that JJ take a small break from the blogging world. This isn't to say she won't be chatting it up on email. Two reasons: 1.) She lives on the Internet with both work and normal life and 2.) Shes stubborn as a mule when it comes to things like this. I have simply asked that she refrain from Internet searches (preggo/IVF related) as well as yous guys' blogs. I hope you all can understand. I really just want her to relax and keep her mind occupied. This is a short term thing, I swear!

So my plea to you is to be understanding in her short absence and I certainly welcome any and all positive comments or support. She is a great woman and I love her dearly. So, with everything I can possibly muster, thank you for everyone's support and understanding. You all are wonderful!

  4. JJ- We'll miss you, but you've earned a break from worrying about the blogosphere! Relax (that's what gets you knocked up right??? Hee!) and know that we're all still here thinking the best possible thoughts for you and your "planets"!

  7. First, I tried this blog about three times today and a few times yesterday and it crashed. That was from my google reader. When I clicked on it from my sites' blogroll, it came up. Strange.

    Next, I just caught up and am excited about the fabulous nine! Nine is good. Nine is clearly enough to work with. Keeping fingers crossed for you! And you're in my thoughts and prayers.

    Last, Mook I know that we completely understand the leave of absense, and support whatever works for JJ. She is fabulous!

    Best of luck and good wishes and baby dust!!!

  11. JJ, just enjoy the break and kick those feet up. We're always here for when you're ready to come back. Hugs!

  12. So, Mook, you'd better keep giving us our fix of ReproJeans or well come after y'all.

  13. Totally understand where you're coming from, Mook. Enjoy the break, JJ and I'm pulling for your 9 embies. 9 is an awesome number!!!! Come visit when you're back in action.

  14. She can refrain but not relax. There's no relaxing allowed out here in the IF-blogosphere, cuz if it gets credited with making babies, we might all have to scream.

    Enjoy the break JJ.

  15. A very wise choice. Sometimes the blogging can just be so overwhelming and can really mess with a girl's head.

    We'll still be all wishing, hoping, praying and finger crossing in the meantime.

  24. You know we'll miss you sweetie but I think that it's a brilliant idea and maybe just what you need. We all need a break sometimes and now is as perfect a time as any other!

    I'm so happy about your little 9, try not to compare...more is not always better! Will be hoping and praying as always for you dear fried xxx

  26. I think that is a GREAT idea...the internet will drive you mad during times like these. My hubby made me very aware of how "addicted" I was to a certain infertility website during our IUI cycles so I deleted my account and it was honestly one of the best things I could have done. There's just too much out there.
    Have a nice break and pass along a hug to JJ!!

  34. JJ, so glad that everything went so well with retrieval. Nine is a great number! That's how many I had (I hope it doesn't break the rules to tell you that, but remember, I am loving the similarities in our cycles . . . ducks/geese and now NINE embryos).

    Enjoy your rest, Sweet Pea.

  38. Mook, dude, you are the Bomb! I'm so proud of you both, taking this step toward sanity. I pray that you have the most wonderful time together and I applaud both of you for being so strong. Curl up with a good Dr Cross novel, JJ. We will all be thinking of you with a full heart. Mook, might I suggest some foot massages and smelly good candles? Aromatherapy and relaxation... good for what ails ya!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I agree with Mook 100% rest and don't Google anything -- you can find anything true or not online and its not good for a worry wart - believe me I am one!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Yep, Google is evil. If you are a search engine addict like me, staying away from the computer is probably the best thing right now. Here's hoping for you!
