Default update...including big, exciting news

I'm calling the doctor and Aetna tomorrow to schedule this month's u/s and IUI's...they BETTER be able to see me this time or else I will explode!

My wisdom teeth are healing up nicely! I was very worried about getting 'dry sockets' as I hear they are worse than the procedure. I have been meticulous about following doctor's orders. I'm sure that helped.

Now for my big
 
exciting
 
news
 
that's even more off topic than a wisdom tooth update!

I have made contact with my biological father. I have not seen or heard from him since I was three years old, with the exception of one failed attenpt to connect back in 1991. So far, so good! I sent him a long letter explaining how his actions affected me through the years. He responded by sending an equally long letter explaining why he did what he did. It's of course very complicated but I am at a place in my life where I am actually okay with his explanation. It's so exciting for me. I am about to burst. We have started emailing. Hopefully, it will continue and I will get to meet him in the near future. I am trying very hard NOT to get my hopes up too much...but it's hard. I have always wanted my father in my life and maybe, just maybe it will happen!!!

That certainly is BIG news! I believe things happen for a reason. I have been in relationships where I thought things would have been different if it happened at another place and time. 1991 was not the right time. The time is now.

Good luck with your scheduling

Looks like you're on a happy upswing in life!
 
Good luck this cycle!

Your news about your dad warms my heart. My biological father never wanted me (told me to my face when I was 22) and he is not in my life at all. I have a huge hole in my life but I know that he would not be a good or positive influence on my children so it's all for the best. It's nice to know that there are some good men out there that DO love their children, and I wish you all the best in cultivating your relationship - it's really wonderful!
