In the last 10 days...

* Celebrated my birthday

* Lost my last living grandparent

* Sent invitations for Piper's first birthday party

* Attended a 20 year reunion for my old summer camp

* Which happened to be across a river from where I got married

* Made an initial consult appointment to get back to IVF

This sort of intersection of events, seemingly engineered to give one perspective on our scope of time on earth, feels more like some cheesy Nicholas Sparks type novel than real life. In other trite observations, I keep mistyping my appointment with Dr. Chang next Tuesday as with Dr. Change. Oh yes and today is CD1.

wow. First of all, I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm glad your grandparent got to meet Piper and hope that there was no suffering.

That is a LOT of life changes for a week and a half! How are you holding up?

And...a YEAR? Really?? Wow.

I hope you're taking some time for yourself to absorb everything. Keep us posted! We'll be thinking of you.

Oh Sarah, I am so sorry about the loss of your grandparent. What a combination of events in such a short time span.

That is a lot. Wow.

I lost my last living grandparent in 2000 - and he was the only one who lived to see great-grandchildren, even though my parents were fairly young (my mom was 48 when Hadas was born).

Congratulations to Piper (and to you, of course). How exciting.

I hope things go well with your appointment!
