Our vacation to our IF relatives was fun. We didn't have a big long emotional conversation about IF or anything, but it was always there as an undercurrent. They are going back to Taiwan to try IVF #2 at the end of March.
One thing I found really dissapointing was their nutrition. DH said his cousin ate really poorly while she was in University - I think like instant noodles every night type of thing. Could this have contributed to her tubes being blocked? I would never say such a thing though.
On the way home (we drove) we stopped at a Per.kins and Cr.acker Barr.el. I mean - this is fun sometimes food. Cr.acker Ba.rrel is espeically fun for us since we just don't have that type of food here. And I know it is mostly older people that frequent these restaurants - but - everyone just looked so unhealthy and doughy. It was pretty sad.
And we ate ridiculously on the trip, since we were on vacation. There was a day were our only vegetables were a bit of lettuce and tomato on a fat sandwich. Yikes.
Which brings me to - man, I got sick. Sunday night the fever/chills came on. The day long drive home I was in the back of the car being uncomfortable. But yesterday - woah, yesterday was rough. I am the type that had a lot of body pain with a fever. It hurt to move, so I spent yesterday lying in one spot as much as possible. Thankfully, I think I sweat it out last night. Today I am just a normal sort of sick.
I looked up my lenten prayer buddy today - she is me, but 1 year ago. Sort of breaks the heart. I hope she doesn't have to go through another year of this!
