LOL

Had to pay homage to a site someone introduced me to. It's toooo funny.

http://www.999reasonstolaugh.com/ (999 Reasons to Laugh at Infertility).

Couple of hilarious "reasons":

No awkward sex talk to your future children! Explaining the birds and the bees to our children will be fun! “Little Tommy, when a mommy and a daddy love each other they drive to a fertility clinic and 4 years later, you are conceived with a lot of love and a little test tube.”

You get to cry about infertility in random places. Why go to a boring old grocery store if you’re just going to shop? Yawn. Boring. Having a emotional breakdown in the tampon aisle, now that’s interesting!

Trying for a baby is FUN! And by fun we mean - having routine timed intercourse for months on end, and then elevating my legs to help his boys swim upstream; sticking a pink thermometer in my mouth each morning and then logging my basal temperature; examining the toilet paper obsessively; going for acupuncture and sticking needles between my eyes and in my belly while an acupuncturist named Young Mee Kim tells me to relax. Just ask my partner about when he had to provide a sperm analysis test and then openly chat about it with a strange doctor; and it was also a blast during my HSG fertility test (that day - FIVE people saw my vagina); and talking to NUMEROUS people about our sex life. I would also say it was good times during all those transvaginal ultrasounds. Oh yes, trying for a baby is FUN!!



Psychic reading

I had a psychic reading last night!

This is the same psychic who told us back in September that we wouldn't get pregnant until March. I remember Doug and I laughing and thinking she was wrong, because how could it possibly take us 8+ months to get pregnant? That's just silly.

Well, here we are. Only 3 days left in February. If this cycle worked, we'd find out that we're pregnant in March.

So last night we did a phone consult, and her talisman gave her a "shaky" yes to the question, "Is Ms. Kelly Brennan pregnant?" I said, "Well, if I am pregnant, it would be very early. Maybe that's why the yes is shaky." And she said, "Could be!"

I truly hope her first prediction and her talisman are right, and I have a little bun in the oven right now. 

Today is Doug and I's 9-month-iversary. <3 <3 9 months ago today I met the most amazing man I could have ever imagined. I feel TRULY lucky each and every day.

We had to cancel our massage package for tonight - the weather is just TOO crap to try and get there right after work. Sucks, but Doug said he'll make it up to me by taking me to a fancy dinner at Kennedy's. He also promises a full body massage and a hot bath. Oh and some Chapmagne! Hopefully it will be a nice relaxing night at home, which is JUST what Dr. Kelly ordered. :D

Tomorrow night is the Badfish concert! Yay!! Hopefully the weather slows so we can get there and home safely. Should be an AWESOME time. 

4dpo today. Some tingly cramps. Not too abnormal, I get weird feelings all the live long month, so.. not reading too much into it. 6 more days of waiting!!

PSA on IF (infertility)

I wish there was a book people could buy: "How to Talk to Someone You Know That is Going Through Infertility".

It would have the following chapters:

Chapter 1: Why the word, "Relax" will get you punched in the face.
Chapter 2: What else not to say, such as, "You're trying too hard," or, "So are you pregnant yet, or what?"
Chapter 3: When to give "advice" (see Chapters 4 and 5), and when to just be there to lean on.
Chapter 4: If your "advice" consists of any of the phrases from Chapter 1 or Chapter 2, see Chapter 3.
Chapter 5: If you've never tried to get pregnant or if you've gotten pregnant easily, you have no advice to give.

Some people tend to think you don't have to try to get pregnant, it just happens. And for many couples, this may be the case. But for some couples - it doesn't just happen. There are TONS of different things that can inhibit a couple from conceiving. PCOS (an ovulation disorder), MFI (when a man's sperm just isn't what it should be), Endometriosis (see Abbreviations)... and the list goes on and on.

Then there is Unexplained Infertility. UI is when a couple has been trying for over a year and have none of the above more obvious conditions. There is no explanation for why they aren't conceiving - they just aren't. People tend to hear that a couple has been trying for a year, and without even meaning to, automatically think, "Wow, what are they doing wrong?" The answer -- nothing. Why do some people who have never smoked get cancer and others who have smoked their whole lives don't? Why do some perfectly healthy babies suddenly turn cold and pass away from SIDS and others don't? It's just one of those things.

Doug and I haven't made it to the diagnosis "Unexplained Infertility" yet, and I hope we never do. Right now the reason why we haven't conceived yet is unexplained, but we're not technically infertile since we haven't been trying for a year.

When people say things like, "Relax" or, "You're trying too hard"... the only things it accomplishes are 1. pissing me/other gals who are TTC off, and 2. making them look really stupid. Would you tell someone with cancer to try and relax and maybe their cancer would go away? Or that they were too stressed and that is why they got cancer? Uhm, no. Because that would be dumb. Well, being stressed or "trying" too hard do not equal not getting pregnant. Crack whores and cancer survivors and moms of 10 children and extremely stressed out business women all get knocked up. Stress has nothing to do with it. And wtf does "trying too hard" even mean? We're having sex at the right time of the month and spend the rest of the month hoping that it did the trick. We're not traveling to Africa to have Voodoo performed on us in hopes it helps with our fertility. I guess perhaps that might be trying too hard. But wanting a child desperately does not equal trying too hard. And it does not equal infertility. There. Is. NO SUCH THING. As "Trying To Hard." To. Get. Pregnant.

Oh, and don't even GET me started on the whole, "When we stopped trying is when we got pregnant" bullshit. PLEASE people. If you "stopped" trying, that would mean you started taking birth control, or avoided having sex during your fertile time. And clearly you wouldn't get pregnant that way. If by "stopped trying" you mean didn't think about it or obsess about it all the time, okay. Fine. Want to know what that's called? Coincidence. You put TTC out of your mind and happened to get knocked up. Want to know how stories like these make women like me feel? Like jumping off a bridge. It's INSULTING. Please tell me WHAT in life happens when you stop trying? If you want to be a doctor, do you stop going to med school when it gets hard? Uhm, no. In fact, you push your way through and are commended on your dedication, determination and perseverance. If you want to be a police officer, or the President, or earn a raise at work - you try as hard as you can. Well, it's the same thing with making a baby. You try as hard as you can. You try and have as many things on your side as you can so that in the end you get the result you want.

So please. If you are friends with someone dealing with infertility, be kind. THINK about what you say. Eliminate things like, "You're trying too hard" and "Relax" and "When you stop trying it'll happen" from your vocabulary. DON'T try to act like the end-all-know-all of TTC. Be there for your friend. Ask questions if you don't understand something. Be supportive of her just as if she was working really hard at work and things weren't working out as she planned. She probably needs you now more than ever.

Hump day.

I made a new screen name on BBC just so that I could email a few gals (Hi Breigh! Hi Gabby!) and exchange blog info to keep in touch. I decided while I was there to (why not, they're going to boot me again anyways) call out a girl who was a complete MORON and pretty much tell her so. I had to document her response to me because it made all of us lol - "I hope your uterus rots and falls out slut"... Wow. Just wow. That is a gem!! People on the internet can be super funny. And as someone pointed out, she'll probably get her BFP before all of us, because that's the way the world works.

My temps aren't really reflecting O. It's making me really nervous. Although, we're covered as far as BD timing, so it doesn't really matter. And I *feel* like I O'd.. so.. it's just a waiting game. As usual. I wish my mom would have taught me more patience as a child. I have NONE.

Two more days until our massages.
Three more days until the Badfish concert.
Eight more days until I'll even have a CLUE whether I'm pregnant or not (I've been spotting lately around 10/11dpo).
Thirteen more days until I know for sure.

Wait, wait, wait.

Would have been 43 years and 1 day old today.

Yesterday was Bradley Nowell's birthday. RIP buddy, your music changes lives! <3

Slump.

I haaaate my "long" weeks at work. The hours friggin DRAG. Not to mention I'm officially in my 2ww, so time literally goes even slower.

I'm excited about this weekend. Friday is our massages and Saturday is the Badfish concert -- woot woot! From Friday - Sunday I'll be able to keep my mind off things. Just need to make it to Friday!

I've been (a little too) obsessed with finding "owl" items, Etsy in general and looking up "HSG success stories" (gals that got knocked up right after their dye test). It's not healthy, but it's keeping me distracted and optimistic. But then Debbie (Ms. Downer) pops in and says, "Come on. Yes there are some women that have gotten knocked up their first month after an HSG, but really - you're not going to. Most women get knocked up within 6 months - you didn't. What makes you think you'll be so lucky now?" And I go wow, you're right. I hate you, but you're right. I've tried to subdue Debbie but she really wants to come out. I've been thinking of calling and asking for a blood test so that I can know as soon as possible, but eh.. whatever. I might as well just wait. Who knows though, I might.

Tuesday. 9 more days of waiting. UGH!

O Day!

Well, my doctor may be smart, but I know my body better. He said I probably wouldn't ovulate until at least Sunday. I knew I'd get a +OPK on Sunday and O on Monday. And here we are -- + yesterday and ovulating today. Yay for O day!

This weekend was fun. Friday night Jason came over and he and Doug and I hung out. Saturday I went to breakfast with my Mom and got my taxes done (horray for big refund check!). On Sunday we went over to Doug's friend Jay's house and I got to play with his ADORABLE 20 month old twins -- Ava and Noah. They are ridiculously cute and getting so big! When we got home Doug made an amazing dinner. All in all a great weekend, even if I did throw my neck out. Doc says nothing but Tylenol and I don't even wanna chance it with that, so I'm toughing it out.

So, we'll know by probably March 4th or March 5th if I'm pregnant or not. That's usually when I start spotting brown and we know my period is coming. AF is due on March 8th. So we'll definitely know by then whether we'll start our 3 month IUI protocol or if we're going to have a 11/15/11 baby. <3 <3

Let the 2ww begin!!

I think we're pretty set on our names, which is pretty crazy since we're not even pregnant yet. Parker Alexander or Avery Grace. I was dead set on Layla Grace for the last 8 months, but Avery has been growing on me. I asked Doug which he preferred and he said Avery, so I think it's settled. We're hoping for a little Thanksgiving turkey!



I'm also excited about the fact that Doug and I will be opening a bank account together (awww). We'll open a checking to use for things like our vacation (we're thinking Dominican Republic or St. Martin!) and new couches for our new place, and a savings account to save for baby Parker or baby Avery. We're like almost real grown ups now!! ;)

Doug has already advised me that all purchases need to be run by him first, hehe. I guess he's nervous since I've been on Etsy a LOT lately looking at adorable nursery items, onsies, tutus (fingers crossed for a girl, cuz Parker may not be thrilled about tutus LOL) and adorable beanies. Some cute items I've found:

Urban Owls...fall...bib

Tea Party Standard Tutu Size 2T to 4T - More Sizes and Colors Available

Customize OWLY is sooo cute earflat hat Boy or Girl sizes preeme to 4 years.

And yep, we're going on vacation for our 1 year anniversary (end of May). Somewhere HOT and all-inclusive (although hopefully by then, only 1 of us will be able to drink)! Can't wait!!

If this cycle works (please oh please oh please!!), I'll have to credit one of these things.

CD10 - Acupuncture
CD11 - HSG test

BD - 2 days before O
         1 day before O
        O day (I'm counting my chickens, but it better happen!!)

4DPO - Massage (edit - canceled)
8DPO - Acupuncture (edit - 9dpo)

Acupuncture is supposed to be good for "opening" you up to conception. And I've heard more than one HSG success story. Add in a massage for relaxation, some Yoga (starting tonight!) and drinking more water - and hopefully you get a BFP! We'll see!

What's in a name?

We're pretty much set on Parker Alexander for a boy, but we've been going back and forth between Layla Grace and Avery Grace for a girl. You can vote on all of the names we've been tossing around by clicking here!



More nursery stuff.

I've become obsessed with nursery ideas. My favorite decal for above the crib (which I first posted about here) is a go for sure. I've found a couple other cute variations of it as well.









I'm thinking an owl or little birdie theme. I've found some adorable wall decals.

For a boy (but it also comes in pink):



For a girl:




Here's an adorable girl owl room:



And some really cute birdie art:




The room that will be our nursery is already a gorgeous shade of (my favorite color) green! So that's perfect. And I found an awesome 4-in-1 crib, changing table and clothing organizer at Walmart, for only $250. What a steal! And it's my favorite wood color - Espresso!
 Thank you SO MUCH to my friend Erin for introducing me to http://www.dalidecals.com/ and the other gals on BBC for introducing me to http://www.etsy.com/. Both amazing websites that I know I'll be purchasing a lot from!

Can't wait to REALLY start planning a nursery! TGIF, looking forward to the weekend! It's O time, baby! <3


Badfish - 8 days!


I couldn't possibly be MORE excited. This is the best concert I've ever been to. It's soo fun.
1 week and 1 day from today!!

I forgot!

I have to say Happy Birthday to Sophie Ann!
She turned 5 on February 13th. <3





The day after

((Lots of TTC abbreviations this post - check out the abbreviations page if you need to.) Well..... it wasn't as bad as I thought! The tech had some trouble inserting the catheter and didn't get it in all the way. She said it would have been worse (the pain) if she could have, but it didn't matter - the dye still went through anyways and they were able to get a clear picture of my inside lady parts. Doug couldn't go in with me - that really sucked, but the assistant tech let me hold/squeeze her hand lol. That was so nice of her and I made sure I filled out a comment card with, "Lindsay was awesome!" before I left.

Doug and I saw the RE afterwards and it went great! He said he didn't see the issue the tech was talking about (that my cervix was extremely narrow), and that I looked "normal" and "fine". He took a look at my follicles and said I probably won't ovulate until at least Sunday. Since it's too late this cycle, we're going to start Femara next cycle (CD3-7). If no BFP still, we'll do one more Femara cycle and then..... move on to IUI cycle #11!!!!!!!!! I'm SO excited. That's exactly what I wanted - no Clomid (he prefers Femara because he says it has same effect yet no side effects) and to move on to IUI around 1 year. I didn't even have to suggest either. He was amazing.

I'm supposed to call if AF comes and schedule CD2 b/w so that I can start Femara on CD3. I'll also then have a CD12 u/s to check on my progress. Also, the u/s didn't show any cysts, so that's good. The doc made sure we were BDing with enough frequency and glanced at my charts to make sure they were bi-phasic.

Hoping that maybe the HSG opened me up enough that we get our BFP this cycle. If not, maybe all I need is an O boost, and the Femara will do the trick. I'm thrilled that he seems so aggressive. For some reason, ever since this all started, I've just felt that Doug and I would need an IUI to get a BFP. Maybe I'm wrong. Hopefully! That would involve time off work for both of us and we've done enough of that lately (first my ER visit and then yesterday's extravaganza). But I'm so happy that if it comes to that, the doc is more than willing.

I've had such a great team of people working with me so far - everyone from my OBGYN to the woman that draws my blood to the HSG techs. And now the RE is amazing. I feel very lucky, and I hope that we get what we all want - for me to be pregnant!

Yesterday was a very special day for another reason as well. *L* I'm looking very forward and hope I don't get disappointed. <3

Happy Thursday!

Today is the day.

The day I've been dreading for months. Praying I got a BFP before I would need this procedure. But alas, just like I knew it would, the day has come. No BFP, and therefore going in for the HSG. I'll live. I'll be okay. But I'm nervous as shit. Very excited about seeing the RE though. Hoping he has all kinds of good things to say. Hoping I walk out of the visit feeling a little more optimistic.

I'm so glad Doug's going with me. I couldn't do this without him.

Nursery

I decided, boy or girl, this is the decal art that will be above the baby's crib in our nursery.




How true that statement will be.


Loss & Hope

First I just have to say I'm so sorry to my friends, Nicole and Ashley. I truly hope you girls get your Rainbow babies soon. <3

I also have to say congrats to my friend Brooke! Brooke, I know this is your Rainbow baby! Love you hun! One of my first friends on BBC. <3 <3

Yesterday went by so fast. Too fast. I'm so freaking nervous about tomorrow. I've been talking and thinking about it non-stop. I know I'm being such a baby, but soo many people have told me how much it hurts! It's scaring me! Hopefully the anticipation is worse than the procedure (but I doubt it :(...). I can tell Doug is nervous for me. I hope he doesn't pass out, lol.

Today is CD10.. getting close to O time. There's a little bit of hope in the air, but something deep inside me is truly telling me that I have endo, and an embryo could never implant. I'm hoping so so hard that I'm wrong and that maybe this HSG will "clear the cobwebs out", as Doug put it this morning LOL. He's right though, it has happened for some. It's like draino for yer tubes. Well, I guess we'll see what the HSG shows and what the RE has to say.

I want a baby bump. SO. Bad. :(

Glee-full weekend :D

This weekend was a blast. Friday night I went over to Cam & Maria's with Jason and ate TONS of junk food, attempted to play Friends Scene It, and watched some of Natural Born Killers (I've seen it before, but they hadn't). I <3 my besties.

Saturday, Maria and I went to "lawyer Donnie's" and then to lunch. And then spent the rest of the day watching Glee! It was faaaaabulous.

Sunday, Doug and I spent the day alone together, which was a nice change. We watched movies, ate pizza (I'm bad) and cuddled a lot. I gave him his Valentine's Day present (a day early, I couldn't help it!) - a 30-minute jacuzzi soak followed by a 60-minute couples side-by-side massage, complete with complementary Champagne and strawberries. What a romantic Friday night (Feb. 25th) that will be! It will also be our 9 month-a-versary. <3 <3

I'm glad to have had a relaxing weekend. I feel like this week is going to be very tense. I'm supposed to have my first fertility-related acupuncture tonight (I've done it once before, a year or two ago, but not for trying to get pregnant), but I need to call and make sure they don't need money up front. If they do, I'll need to reschedule it for after Thursday's pay day.

Then Wednesday, of course, is HSG (11am) / RE appt (1pm) day. The big day. The test I've been dreading for months, and the appointment I've been looking forward to. Thursday is my first fertility therapist appointment - a therapist that specializes in infertility. I'm hoping she can give me some tips/advice on dealing with the emotional rollercoaster. Sometime the week of the 21st, I should be getting a +OPK and we'll have to schedule the post-coital test (PCT). I'm a bit stressed about letting work know about that. I'm going to have to tell someone sometime this week though.

I wonder if the RE will do/want to do the PCT. It would be easier for me - he's only 15 minutes from my work, whereas my OBGYN is about 40. I also wonder if he'll want to talk about meds, or endo/lap surgery.. or if he'll suggest IUI.. or just tell us to keep doing what we're doing. Who knows! I'm so excited.

Sometime around the 24th, I'll enter the 2ww. The beginning isn't too bad. You've still got beginning-of-the-cycle-optimism syndrome, as I call it lol. That weekend will be great at keeping my/our mind off things. Our Valentine's Day fun on Friday, Badfish (yay!!) concert on Saturday night, and a nice alone day on Sunday. I bet by the time Monday rolls around, I'll (most likely) be 7dpo and THEN the crazy will kick in! The last week of the 2-week-wait is T-O-R-T-U-R-E!!

So, BOTH appointments Wednesday could help us to get pregnant. As could this week's acupuncture appointment. We're taking a lot of steps this cycle! I've also had more than one person mention, *maybe* that (2/7) cyst was preventing us from getting pregnant, and now that it ruptured and is gone, we'll get our BFP.

So, I'm very hopeful for this cycle - lots of things going on different. <3

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY to my honey. <3 <3 xoxoxo <3 <3

.xoxo Alexander xoxo.

Today is my brother's birthday! I can't believe he's 20. Wow. I truly remember this day 20 years ago. I was pissed he wasn't a girl (they told my mom she was having another girl throughout her entire pregnancy!) lol. But I wouldn't have it any other way. ;) (I still painted his nails and put curlers in his hair when he was little, so, I think it evens out.)





Love you little broder! <3




 

One good thing about music...

...when it hits you, you feel no pain.

My music playlist this morning included: What I Got (Reprise), Santeria and Garden Grove. I'm psyched about the Badfish (Sublime cover band) concert in 15 days.

I couldn't fall asleep last night. I was thinking, and worrying, about the HSG. 5 more "wake ups" as my friend Dianna calls it. I've just been thinking about how much it's going to hurt.. I know many of my friends have had it done. Everyone lived. And I think I have a pretty good pain tolerance. It's just new. Something I've never done before. And with the discomfort of Monday's vaginal u/s, and people telling me it's MUCH worse than that - I'm nervous. Very, very nervous.

It seems it will be a sunny, fun weekend. Hopefully it will help keep my mind off of Wednesday.

Monday not-so-fun day

On Friday night I started having some pelvic pain. It was reminiscent of a night back before Christmas. The pain subsided, but I had horrible cramps all weekend. Monday morning I wasn't feeling great, but went to work anyways. I ended up having the pain again and my mom rushed me to the ER.

I was there for 7 hours without food, water or even ice chips. I got to hear the elderly man in the room next to me get a catheter put in. My legs were hairy and I was on my period. It was a ball.

I had a urinalysis, blood was taken, and they did a pelvic exam. They decided to go ahead and do a vaginal u/s, which showed a small cyst on my left ovary that had ruptured. There was some fluid in my abdomen as well.

I had had a cyst rupture when I was 13. That pain was much worse, much more sudden and strong. This wasn't the same, but I guess it doesn't always feel the same.

They gave me some pain meds and an IV of fluids and then sent me home. I took Tuesday off of work to rest. I've been sore and exhausted, and have had a headache or migraine every day since.

My OBGYN is still waiting for the u/s results to be sent to her from the hospital. She's concerned since I told her I had the SAME pain last month, that these cysts might be a problem.

I'm convinced I have endo. My mom and Aunt had it. My Aunt had several m/c and was in the process of adopting before she finally conceived. My cousin also had trouble getting pregnant. I was only 10 when I started my period (a risk factor in itself) and this is the 2nd time I've been officially diagnosed with having a ruptured cyst. My periods are also becoming increasingly painful. Some other symptoms of endo: hypoglycemia, anxiety and depression. Check, check and check.

I have my HSG scheduled on Wednesday, my OBGYN says to go ahead with it. I also meet with the RE that day. Hopefully if I present to him all of this evidence, he will be more willing to perform a lap on me to diagnose endo. I will be THRILLED if I don't have it, but I really think that might be the problem keeping us from conceiving.

I'm nervous as shit about the HSG, but if it helps us or at least gives us more answers then I'm all for it.

5 more days. Wait, wait, wait.

..

CD2 today, and kicked off BBC again. Fun stuff.

I'm in some pretty bad pain and thinking of leaving work to go to the Immediate Care Center. I just don't know if I can. :(

Friday, February 4, 2011

No such luck.

I had really hoped this would be our cycle, but it looks like we're moving on to Cycle #8.

We have some testing we need to get done this month, it's not going to be fun, it's not going to be easy, but it is necessary and important and I'm glad we're taking these steps.

A November baby will be even better than an October baby. :)

And congrats to my friend Britts, who also got her BFP! Congrats hun. <3 <3

Today.

Today is a really rough day for me. I've done great all day, but after lunch I started doing too much research -- Google is bad when you're trying to get pregnant (and can't)!!

Most stats I've found have led me to believe that if it takes you longer than 6 months to get pregnant, it either won't happen for a long time, won't happen without help (fertility treatments), or won't happen at all.

One study (715 people responded):

1st month trying -- 243 people (34%)
2-6 months -- 192 people (27%)
7+ months -- 80 people (11%)
Needed fertility help -- 59 people (8%)
Got pregnant on accident -- 141 people (20%)
 
Another study (2,899 people responded):
 
 
50% got pregnant within 3 months or less.
12% got pregnant within 3-6 months.
6% got pregnant within 6-9 months.
5% got pregnant within 9 months to 1 year.
7% got pregnant within 1-2 years.
8% got pregnant after 2+ years TTC.
13% "other" (chose to adopt, etc.)


Yet another study:
 
30% get pregnant the 1st month.
29% get pregnant within 3 months.
21% get pregnant within 6 months.
5% get pregnant within 1 year.
6% get pregnant within 3 years.
2-4% get pregnant within 4 years.
And I guess the 5-7% rest of the folks either take 4+ years, or don't conceive at all. Or adopt.

So as you can see, in each study most got pregnant within 6 months. After that, the chance of conceiving decrease dramatically. And only one of those studies took into account fertility treatments (Clomid, Femara, IUI, IVF, Gonal F, injections, etc.)

All of us gals have heard over and over, "It can take a healthy couple up to a year to conceive." But I don't think I believe that anymore. From the studies above, it takes MOST couples 6 months to conceive (at most). After that - you either need some REALLY good luck... or a good Reproductive Endocrinologist.

Some quotes I like:

"Millions of couples suffer from infertility. So why the FUCK is everyone pregnant but me?"

"If you can't find hope, look in a new direction."

Cute onsie: "My parents spent $30,000 on fertility treatments and all I got was this lousy onsie."

"The jump is so frightening between where I am and where I want to be... because of all I may become, I will close my eyes and leap!"

"To achieve the life you want, you must first give up the life that you have."

"I hope that we can be happy where we are, be grateful for our blessings now, accept the challenge that is ours and make the most of it, and not be envious of others."

"Never give up, because you never know what tomorrow will bring."

"You cannot have a testimony without a test."
