Haven't been here for a LONG time...

I haven't signed onto this group for a long, long time. Lots of new faces, but a few "old" ones. How is everyone doing? Pamela? Any more kids? Amanda? Catch me up...

How are you doing?  You have been missed!

Hi, Helen. Hmmmm...how have I been doing. So many ways to answer that! Life is definitely changed...I'm not the same person I was three years ago. I think about Ian many, many times every day. He literally changed out lives. I was not well for a very long time after he died. Depression doesn't even describe it. But, about six months ago, I turned a corner. I began to *want* life again. Every day I feel more and more like myself. It's taken a lot of work, a lot of tears...but life is [mostly] good again. No more babies...I had the tubal reversal and they could only fix one tube. We have not been able to get pregnant. At this point, we are accepting that, and making *new* life plans...kids will all be out of the house in six years, so we're making plans to travel quite a bit when that happens. But, we'll see. We just never know what existence has in store for us.

Well, Helen, apparently I haven't been *too* missed. LOL. ;-)

Hi Trica, I remember you although we never really connected or anything I quietly followed your story. I haven't posted much at all in the last few years myself. I cannot even begin to imaging the grief you have experienced since losing Ian, but happy to hear you are doing okay and making plans for the future. Best wishes.

Hey sweets!!!  So great to hear from you, you have been missed.  Nothing new here.  Ryder is now 2 and full of energy.  We would still like another, but I just had my 3rd loss since him, so losing a bit of hope.  

I am so happy to hear that you are beginning to heal and enjoy life a little bit.  I think about you all the time and wonder how you are.  It's so good to hear from you, and I hope you pop in more often.  Sorry it took so long to respond, you know me, every now and then I take a break from this forum and focus elsewhere.  Love ya girl!
