We are fine here

Hey! I wanted to first thank so many of you for sending me emails and asking about us here in Cairo. We are fine, and are FAR AWAY, approx. 7-8 hours away from the Rafah border. There have been lots of protests here in Cairo, but downtown- also far from where we are.

It is madness what is going on in the Gaza Strip! We pray for all the people who are suffering and dying each day. Peace is something that we wish for so badly in this region, but honestly, I do not think it will ever come easy, as its not a fair playing field.

Now on to my tube.... I am SO READY to remove this baby! Thanks so much for all of your comments, they encouraged me and helped me cement my decision to get rid of it, once and for all. Wouldn't it be amazing if indeed this was standing in the way of implantation? That would be so cool! I will call my doctor later today or tomorrow and schedule the surgery.

All else ok, nothing too exciting. Oh wait, actually my husband bought me a really cool present yesterday, its corny as hell, but the best to me! I will take a picture and post later.  Miss you all and a belated Happy 2009 to us all! xoxoxoxoxoxox


  1. So glad to know you're okay. I've been worried. Happy New Year!

  2. Glad to hear it! What a horribly difficult situation...

    Fingers crossed on the surgery!

  3. You sound really upbeat! I hope 2009 is the best for all of us!

  4. I read your blog and I realize how much I take for granted each day. I will keep you and your hubbs in my thoughts and daily prayers.

    Stay safe and yes 2009 is going to ROCK!!

  5. So glad to hear you are okay and I hope things start to get better soon.

    It's great you were able to come to a decision about your tube. Overcoming the decision hurdle usually helps our state of mind so much. Keep us posted!

    Oh, and I'm looking forward to seeing your gift. (-;

  6. Happy to hear you guys are far from the madness. I was making Alex show me on a map, just how far you guys were from it. Seeing the pics on tv, have just made me's so sad.

    Praying for you guys...
