Swim Baby, Swim

Today was a good day. We had my husband's second appointment post surgery. At his last appointment we were told that his mobility wasn't that great. Well... It's improved, A LOT!! Hallelujah!

Like I mentioned in my post from his first appointment, peak results usually aren't seen till 6-9 months post surgery. We are 5 months in and on the right track!

My husband has to continue to take all of his same vitamins and supplements and we will see his doctor again in January.

The surgery worked! The vitamins and supplements are working! What a relief!

I was angry and mad and had to channel that somehow. So, I started to write. And to think, here we are a full year later, and I'm still not pregnant. It's freaking frustrating.

Tomorrow my husband has yet another follow up appointment to see how his sperm quality has improved post his May surgery. It's been 5 months and I'm ready to get the show on the road. But I am scared to death about what tomorrow's analysis will tell us. Hopefully, things will h…
