- My husband, David, and I had been trying to have a baby since November of 2007. After 'letting things happen', we got the amazing news that we were pregnant in June of 2008. Sadly, that pregnancy ended at 9 weeks with a natural miscarriage. After two more chemical pregnancies, we turned to fertility treatments in 2009. That decision was a disaster, with lousy medical care and poor monitoring. In December of 2009, we made the huge decision to move onto IVF. Things fell into place like magic and we began treatment on January 15, 2010. After a blighted ovum in March, we did a successful FET in June, only to endure another blighted ovum in July. We kept up and underwent another IVF in September/October of 2010 with the arrival of our son, Brogan in July of 2011! After our lovely success (finally) we decided to undertake yet another IVF treatment and hope for a sibling for our little red headed boy. Well... so far it's worked. Our story continues below!

So it felt a massive loss when she passed away on April 10th.
I was close to her, so I knew she was dying. I accepted it a long time ago. You just don't beat cancer like she had it.. it was everywhere. I prayed for her death to be swift. She was in so.much.pain. And, she was far away from family with only one sister nearby to help in her care, and a very loving, but tired and in his late 50's husband.
I struggle with anger, and I know to try and understand is useless. I can't change anyone, and why would I want to? But this wasn't about them. I think they all forgot that while they might not think of me as a close sister, she did.
