Throw us a bone Lord!

We just got some bad news.

A friend of Mr. JB's just passed away from cancer. She was 39 with two little kids. Needless to say, Mr. JB is quite shaken up.

Please pray for her family, especially her husband and children.

Also we just found out that my father-in-law's girlfriend has a huge blood clot in her brain, she hasn't had a stroke. Apparently, the initial diagnosis was completely wrong. The reason why her condition has been deteriorating so quickly is that her brain isn't getting enough blood. She's moving into assisted living on Saturday, and it doesn't seem like it's not a moment too soon.

It's been a little bit of a stressful week at casa JellyBelly.

We'll do the draw tomorrow or Friday.

Sorry!

p.s. In happier news, All You Who Hope picked up her baby today. Go over there and wish her congratulations!

  9. Hello!

    My name is Elisabeth, and I am an infertility / repeated pregnancy loss "veteran". You can read a little bit about me and my experiences in my blog: drhousewife.blogspot.com . I am completing a PhD in Counseling Psychology, and my dissertation is focused upon the impact of infertility on marriage. I believe strongly that there is a need for better support services for men and women who are undergoing IF diagnosis and treatment, and my hope is that this study will aid in the development of such services.

    I am contacting you after stumbling across your blog. I am recruiting participants for my study, and wanted to invite you and your husband to take part. All that would be involved would be the completion of an online survey, that would take approximately 20 minutes. All couples who complete the surveys will receive a voucher good for a pair of free movie tickets at a Regal Cinemas.

    Please let me know if you are interested by emailing me at UTInfertilityResearch@gmail.com .

    Best of luck to you!
    Elisabeth
