Is it possible to Show and Tell about two completely different things? I'll try. Let's see how it works out.

First, the show:

Our new puppy Polly. She's about ten days old and I can't wait for her to come home.

Next, the tell:
I'd like to continue the story of my recent hospitalization, but honestly, I'm getting to the traumatic part that I keep reliving over and over and I don't think I'm quite ready to write about it. If you missed the beginning of the story, read this first, then read this one. You'll have to check back soon to get the most intense part of the story. I promise I'll write about it. I just need a minute to catch my breath.

Wow...if anybody needs a puppy, you do. I'm so sorry you've had such a horrendous experience. I hope you have smooth sailing from here on out. So, so, so sorry! What a sweet face on that Polly...I hope the next few weeks go by quickly and PAINLESSLY for you and that the FET is sucessful.

I would really love to hug that puppy right now.

OHSS is terrifying. I'm scared to read part 3 for you.

Tara said...

That puppy is so cute! What kind is she/he?

The OHSS sounds terrifying. I am so sorry that you experienced that and that the symptoms were not described in more detail for you.

Here to read as you write it. Reliving is such a scary aftershock.

I agree that you deserve a puppy after all that! Waiting to read part threewhen you're ready.

That puppy is too adorable for words - puppies are the reason I'm happy to go to work every day! Absolutely gorgeous.

I'm sorry you had such a rotten experience. I hope you're feeling better.

Dear Gina, Polly is really pretty...and I think she is bound to bring in a lot of cheer...I am not sure what Part 3 contains....but I hope that anything after that is sunny at best.

Good Luck!

Polly is a German Shorthair - a hunting dog. I don't like the hunting part, but GS's are such sweet, loving dogs!

Lavender Luz said...

What a harrowing experience, Gina.

That is one cute puppy. I hope you'll soon be cuddling with him.

OMG... I knew OHSS was a serious thing, but wow! You have been through the wringer! I hope all gets better quickly for you and that you get to have your beautiful puppy home with you soon!

Your new puppy is adorable! I know my puggins puppy was a huge help when dealing with infertility/miscarriage stress a couple of years ago (and she still is).
