Project Delayed

Hi all. We've been sitting on this decision for a couple weeks, but putting this blog on hold isn't as easy as it was to start it up. For a whole bunch of reasons, we've decided to delay project: baby for a couple years. But it has not been for nought! Here's the recap:
  • On the plus side, I am completely free of prescription drugs for the first time since 1989 (when I started prescription allergy meds.) I have had a drastic decrease in migraines--one or two a month instead of 3 or 4 a week.
  • Unfortunately, my endometriosis symptoms are returning, a little bit worse each month. I can live with it for now, but may need to remedicate if it keeps getting worse.
  • As much as we both know it's the right choice for us right now, we're sad. We've gotten to the point now, though, where we can talk about hypothetical baby without being sad, knowing that he/she is still in our future.

Thank you for reading, thank you for lurking and commenting. We'll take this up again when the time is right.

awww, she says as she crawls out of her lurking space which was small and dark and cozy...

despite all the issues surrounding the decision to produce and temporarily postpone project baby, you have both grown into such strong, interwoven, beautiful people through this experience, and it was a pleasure to be present for it.

Lisa: Love you too! Thank you for the hugs, encouragement and perspective.
Auds: I can't wait for October. I get to hang out with you and Curt, and by then, I'll know whether I'm endorsed for ordination ... a big step. If you still want to lurk, check out http://rev-swiftbright.livejournal.com/ ... Sean and I are deciding if we want to do another co-blog, but until then I'll be livejournaling.
