Health care is a basic human right, not a privilege. For some reason, we’ve allowed ourselves as Americans to be fooled into accepting that one must be blessed with “means” to actuate appropriate health care. As a nation we have failed to realize that our health care system is a barometer of our society’s value for human life.

You Give Me Fever

Ahhhh. Baby baby baby baby.

Baby Fever. I have a bit of baby fever.

Baby Fever is not without its own complications. Seeing as how I am a type 1 diabetic with more than one complication accompanied by a completely different chronic condition, I am no stranger to complications (t-1 diabetes 17 years, gastroparesis, hypoglycemic unawareness, degenerative disc disease accompanied by neuropathic pain.) Complications that complicate that whole innocent baby making process (well perhaps not the making process itself….)

That being said….ahhhhh little baby baby baby baby baby. How does one decide that a baby baby baby should not be a baby baby baby inside of me? I want to believe that any baby of mine would be content simmering amidst my other internal organs, happy to some extent with the environment I have prepared for it, lacking though it may be in perfection. Thirty something baby-making with a complication or two may not be complication free for baby too.

But in the end, I do believe, that despite med changes and body rages, that whatever baby baby baby God may grant to me and Bob the Babe-y may wallow quite contentedly in the womb that happens to be mine.

Ah well, god’s will is more prescient than my own and we will see what baby baby baby may come to pass.


Minnesota Nice said..., I duly swear that if you stop blogging now I will head up '94 and do something very unpleasant to someone (don't exactly know who).
My very best wishes - if it's meant to be, the kidlet will get here.
And, in no uncertain terms, I mean KEEP US POSTED!!

I'm sure you know this already, but if you're serious about trying to get pregnant, talk to your endo about it and get your A1c where it should be. No idea about the disk stuff, but the type 1 fears can be minimized so much if your A1c is under 7, or even under 6, once you conceive.
