Just a little update on how things are going....first of all I want to thank everyone for their prayers and sweet comments about my Mom. We went to a neurologist last week and it his oppinion that she does NOT have Alzheimer's! Praise the Lord! He seems to think she had an episode of "Transient Global Amnesia" and that it was more than likely a one time incident. Her spirits have lifted quite a bit and so have mine! Even though I was telling myself I could handle whatever happened I am so glad we won't be facing such a devastating thing as Alzheimer's. I REALLY do appreciate everyone that reached out to us and offered support. Thank You!

Now on to more exciting things...we are still actively trying for our "miracle" and I am going back to see the fertility specialist next week to discuss IUI. This is the most "affordable" option for us right now and the least invasive. Has anyone had any experience (good or bad)with this that you would be willing to share? I can use all the advice I can get!

Things are really crazy for me at work right now, we are going through a transition and so many people are worried about the future of our company. I am trying to take it all in stride and not worry, but anyone who knows me knows I WORRY. I just pray that things will work out and that this economy of ours will pickup soon! Lord knows we need some change!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Response to Anonymous:My Mother takes Pravachol (Pravastatin)-she has been on it for a little over a year now (she had an MI last August) Are there some links to these drugs and TGA??

Amanda-we went to see Dr. Gibson @ Northgate Neurology, thanks so much for your sweet words!

PTL! That is fabulous news! I am so happy for you, who was the neurologist that you saw?
I am praying for you to make the right decision about IUI. Keep us updated!

Great news about your mom!!!
Kara - I thought IUI's were very easy and they work for SO MANY people!!! I pray it works for you! (You won't hardly even feel anything - it's not bad at all!)

I did four IUI's and the most important thing I can tell you is to make sure you feel comfortable with the timing. With IUI's the timing is everything! Unfortunatly, they didn't work for me, but they do work for a lot of women! The best of luck to you!
