Plan B Sperm

In my head, I've decided that in a year- we won't need IVF. Too hopeful? Maybe. But who cares. I have a year to wait so I'll just spend it being delusional about my future sperm prognosis. Mmmmkay?

But just in case- plan B is to freeze the boys. JC has a very romantic appointment at the RE today so we can freeze sperm. Back up sperm. Cause I won't need them.

Side Note: I've directed him to ask for the count. Just curious, that's all.

What's good for the goose...

Is good for the gander? Isn't that the saying?

I'm hoping that JC having weight loss surgery will be good for me too. I had gastric bypass almost 4 years ago and in the last 3 years have managed to put on 40lbs. There. I said it. 40lbs. I'm hoping that he'll be in charge of what he needs to eat and I can be in charge of what I need to eat and that eventually we'll meet in the middle somewhere.

I'm also looking foward to starting to try new things for exercise. JC wants to canoe and hike this summer. Once this surgery and RAI is over, we'll have a good year of trying new things together to look foward to. It's nice to have good things ahead for once.

Tour de Food

So surgery for JC is May 9th. Starting Monday the 2nd- he's on a full liquid diet. So we spent the week prior on what I called the "Tour de Food". We ate our way through each night of the week- including a trip to Morton's Steakhouse- and I was ready to vomit by Saturday.

Pizza, wings, steak...all of it. Thank god it's over! I am done eating.

I think JC going on this little adventure is good for me too. I'll be able to cook for just myself for quite sometime and hopefully it will help me get my weight back under control.
