The tree is gone...

My neighbor's tree is gone. I am so sad, during my months of bedrest during my PG last spring/summer I spent many days gazing out the window looking at this beautiful tree across the alley. It is old and big or shall I say it was old and big, probably the height of a walk up apartment building. It was intertwined with another tree with dark Burgundy leaves, it was so nice to see the green and Burgundy together. I was glad I was home to see the poor old thing go down though at least I could say goodbye to my old friend. Ya I used to watch the resident squirrel jump from the neighbours fence, to the tree, then to the garage. It always used to amaze me how it would jump back from the garage to the tree. Sometimes mother nature does do wonderful things. I think the tree with the burgundy leaves is still there it is much smaller but I am sure it will grown faster now that it has more sun and probably more water too. My poor squirrel still needs a tree to jump from and too!

Well it was a beautiful day to be outside so I opened my window and watched the removal and shredding of my favorite tree. It was amazing though to watch the tree removal company take the tree down. Bit by bit and piece by piece. I enjoyed watching the process I just wish it wasn't 'my' tree! LOL. Some skinny dude (probably a good thing he was skinny) tied himself to the tree and climbed on up, before I realized what was going on so I missed the first part of the climb. I was a little disappointed I missed the first bit but what can I do.

He carefully took the tree down in bits from the top. He would move then re-anchor himself to the tree. I was glad to see that he was using safety equipment as I am afraid of heights and it even bothers me to see others up high. He had some cool tree climbing shoes on too (If I liked to climb trees I think I would have had to get me some!). He could stand on the side of the tree, pick up his chain saw and zippo there goes another branch. I was wondering about the chain saw, it was tied to a long cord which was tied to him... I wondered why him and not the tree? Even if it was off if he fell it would be attached to him and he could fall on it? (So many silly questions!) I am always interested in things I haven't done before so it was pretty cool to watch! I was sad when they took 'my' tree bits and threw them into the dreaded shredder! (Probably not as sad as the tree! LOL!)

It was a beautiful day I am just sad to see a hole where 'my' tree used to be.

FET Thoughts
Got my paperwork for my u/s next Monday and my req for my PG test. Wow it's really happening. Finally the side effects from my estrace have subsided.... for now. I suppose they may come back tomorrow after I increase my dosage again, but hopefully not.

There has been way to many BFN's lately I sure hope things change soon for the gals that are waiting. A little piece of me is always so sad everytime I hear of a failed cycle, I remember how difficult it can be. I wish all those in their waits success, and those with failures, the strength to make it through another day.

By the way is it just me or is this the slowest week ever? Frig it feels like it's never going to end!

Warning kids discussed
Well I traded my Dr's appt today for my sons since they couldn't get him in. I only needed my paperwork for my u/s and I figured the rest of my 'issues' could wait anyway.

Well my poor babe has an awful wheeze. I don't know how the poor thing is getting any oxygen or sleep for that matter. It is terrible to listen to him. Well they now have him on ventolin and something else to help clear him up (can't remember the name). He was really good for his first dose, I hope it stays that way. (I do think he was a bit annoyed because he thought he was getting a bottle!) Well the dr. said if it gets any worse to take him to the hospital again. I am afraid to sleep, I am so terrified that he may stop breathing. (Well I sure am getting a distraction from the wait for my current FET, not exactly what I was looking for that's for sure!) I do feel slightly better as crazy lady (my mother) says that I did the same thing when I was sick when I was a baby.

I sure hope they both get over their colds very soon... the other fella is still sick too but he isn't wheezing at least.

I was so excited I picked up their 'Easter' pictures today. They look so cute (I know I am the mom so of course they are cute), but the lady told me they were cute too so I must be right! :) Anyway I was so excited, she requested my permission to enter the picture in a photo competition, they could end up as 'poster' babies, that would be sooo cool!

Thats about all I have to say today folks... take care and BFP's to all that want them!!

Neat story about the tree. Our neighbours agreed to cut a tree down in their yard that is really ugly and blocks out all the sun in our backyard (yes, it's a small backyard!)So I'll look forward to seeing how they bring it down! It was a shame that they took down 'your' tree though. It is hard to say goodbye to the things around us that we have gotten attached to. Take care!

It's a shame they took down your tree! That was such a relaxing place for you. Glad to hear your side effects have subsided! Mine are horrible right now (sorry about the drunken ramble)

I always get sad when I see a live tree being taken down. It just seems like such a waste.

Thank you for the kind thoughts on my blog.

Good luck with your cycle!

I hope that babies feel better soon. I remember when Alex was little and would get a cold or stuffy nose, no sleep for me on those nights.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, you made me smile, I needed that.

I just wanted to say hi, and discover you are also Canadian, but I assume West Coast eh?
I love the fact that you have twins. It must be so hectic and now that they are sick, wow, how do you deal with both at the same time. We women must be praised more often for the magic we do to keep things going.... I cross my fingers for your FET. Are you ready for two more?...It could happen!

I hope that your u/s goes well next Monday!

But why did it have to come down? How sad.

And I agree. Way to many BFNs.

What a beautiful quote:

"Out of difficulties grow miracles."

We are also cutting our evergreen down in the front yard. There is a maple tree growing in the middle of it and it is killing the bigger tree.

slowest week ever. One more week until I beta, hopefully we can pull off a few success stories because there hasn't been much lately.
Funny story for you. My husband decided to trim a tree. I was sitting on the deck. Well, the branch came down funny, tipped right over and hit my right on the head. I didn't see it coming and thought somebody was trying to kill me it hurt so bad. Morale of the story - tree cutting/trimming is best left to professionals, glad you neighbours went that route.

see, as proof of the tree branch story, I haven't been able to spell since!

Happy to hear that your little guy is doing better. That must have been kind of scary to see him wheezing like that.

Keep us updated on how the FET cycle is going!
