Rockstar

My wife is a total infertility-treatment rockstar. This is the same woman who refused a steroid shot while she was having an allergic reaction that caused vertigo, hot flashes and itchy red welts to cover her entire body making her every waking moment miserable. She opted for the pills that would take up to 24 hours to kick in instead of having nearly instant relief just to avoid that needle. She's chosen to have dental work done with no Novaca1ne because having her cavity filled with full sensation caused less mental anguish than a simple local anesthetic. The fact that she is willing to be in the same room as a needle, let alone stick it into her own muscle is a testament as to how badly she wants to be pregnant. She is amazing and I couldn't be more proud of her. :)

This is gearing her up for the epideral! She is doing a great job!

Maybe this will help her overcome her needle phobia. ;)
