Taking the plunge

Safe - plunging into a contained environment!

Sometimes we just have to take the plunge!

No use hanging out toes over the edge and thinking of all the reasons why we shouldn’t…the what ifs…

Last night we were privileged to observe (and feel) the pain and anguish of Jay-jay and Dom – well-known radio hosts – while they went through the roller-coaster ride that is IV treatment. Desperate to have a child, they had already unsuccessfully gone through three attempts. It was heart-rending – I so wanted a good outcome for them, but it was not to be.

We cried with them.

It must have been so hard making their decision to try again, but what do you do? If you don’t give it a go, you’re left wondering if you should have. And if you do, you’re know the journey has a huge emotional toll and likely to end in pain.

I feel very deeply for Jay-jay and Dom and I thank them for opening our eyes and letting us in and sharing their lives. While I have always been sympathetic for friends unable to have children, I have never appreciated what they have had to put their body and soul through.

The pain is immeasurable.
