We're okay!

I just wanted to let everyone know that we are okay! Our garage and Garett's car, on the otherhand, are not--but more about that later.

Our power finally came back on Friday night (after a full week) and I can actually say that it made me tear up. Being 8 months pregnant and having no power is absolutly miserable. Nathan did okay with the whole ordeal because we spend A LOT of time outside--taking walks, painting, playing with the neighbor kids, etc. He actually had a blast.

Anyway, as I said earlier, G's car and our garage didn't fare so well. About 4 in the morning on Saturday during IKE, I heard this loud crash. I thought for sure that a tree fell on our house. In the morning, we could finally see that thankfully that didn't happen. But, our big 100 year old oak tree in the back fell right on the garage and G's car that was in front of the garage. It took out our gumball tree with it. G's car is pretty much totalled and the garage has seen better days. We had some tree people come out this last Friday and rescue my car (which was in the garage) and take the tree off of everything. You should see the pile of debris in our front yard.

I will post pictures later once I get them downloaded. For now, though, I just wanted to let everyone know that we are all safe.

Hi Sarah! I'm glad you all turned out ok! I'm sorry I have been missing your calls. I am home from school right now sick! I came home Fri with fever and crud, the dr started me on a ZPack Friday, and I still don't feel great so I staye dhome again today. I would give anything to not be working right now. I hate working at the moment. Pregnancy has been hard on me. Anyway, I'm glad you guys are safe, and I bet your ready to have that baby girl!

Hi Sarah-
I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your recommendation of Dr. Roach. I had my ER today and everything went well (12 eggs - hopefully most mature!), but more than that I just love everyone in that office. I feel so welcomed and cared about and I don't doubt for a second that I'm in wonderfully capable hands. Even if this cycle doesn't turn out how we hope, I know everything that could've been done has been, and I can't ask for anything more than that. So thank you for sending me to her - I just can't thank you enough.
