How can I process hurting someone I never wanted to hurt, but HAD to hurt, in order to save them?

How can I move forward from a decision made not with malice, but that carried malice along with it because I BROUGHT it.  Because I needed to, in order to justify to others...

You know what happens to me every year? 

I screw up the Christmas cards. 

Seriously, every year!  I think, "oh I have plenty of time" and then before you know it- it's January 10th and I'm just getting those suckers in the mail.  Sorry family!  Thanks for knowing me well...

A couple days ago, I received a box of all the medications I will be using for IVF.   I knew the box was coming, since I was the one who ordered it, so there was no surprise when I saw the package on the doorstep.  

What WAS surprising, however, was how L...

Summertime.  The time for kids to be outside, just being kids.  Since we are currently a little "backyard challenged" I will have to come up with some creative activities to keep Avie entertained this summer.

I can't help but wonder what kind of bug could withstand the fumigating antibiotic that Avie inhales twice a day.  I guess the simple answer is some kind of virus.  so I go back a few days, try to peel the layers of the onion that is my memory, but I can't find any obv...

I did something today that terrified me: I took my daughter to lunch at a restaurant- by myself.

We take her out with us all the time, but it's a whole new ballgame when you don't have a partner to help.  Just getting the enzymes and applesauce into her mouth takes two...

I had such a precious moment this morning that made me realize something deep and profound.  It dawned on me that all I have ever done, in my whole life, was preparing me for for that moment and every minute of every day moving forward.

I was in bed, still exh...

When I start to worry about Avie's future, I find comfort in knowing that programs are available for us.

Avie is still young, but I'm connected enough to know that CF patients can have a tough time living "normal" lives.  Their health issues (hospital stays or not) take...

We want Avalyn to have a sibling.  That single statement could open up a whole platform for debate about the benefits, or not, of having a sibling- but that's not why I'm posting this.  Honestly, I am posting this because I feel like it might help someone else struggli...

I am not the type of Mother who has all sorts of fun activities at hand.   I've heard of those women and I kneel at their feet.  However, I've noticed that the older Avalyn gets, the quicker and more halting her boredom is.  It forces me to come up with something for h...
