Saturday evening our great friends Alex and Anthony Soto invited Chad and I to the American Heart Association Charity Event at the Embassy Suites in Rogers. It was great to dress up and get fancy with our friends. The charity event was a hit, they had great auction items and the dessert was wonderful. They had chocolate covered strawberries and petit fours... YUMMY!
Chad and I had to depart early from the event because the next day was the Big Race Day.
Thanks again to the Soto family for the invite!
Sunday our morning started at 5AM as we had to get up to prepare for the first shot of our many shots for IVF. I was a bundle of nerves as Chad got everything ready. We didn't take any pictures as at 5AM I was not thinking about taking a picture. The shot was not too bad it burned a bit and I felt dizzy and naused all day, but that is one of the side effects. Plus I will take it if I get the end result of getting pregnant. Sunday evening I gave myself the shot and it went much better. So for this round of shots for the next week I am planning on giving it to myself. I am actually proud of myself that I am able to do this... as I am not a fan of needles or blood.
Now for the best news... Chad finished the Hogeye Half Marathon in 1 hour and 44 minutes. I was so proud of him. The run was in Fayetteville and it had around 8 BIG hills that he had to deal with, plus it was around 45 degrees and very windy. After the race Chad was very tired and his legs were aching, but he was very HAPPY with his results. Sunday afternoon Chad was able to enjoy a one hour massage at Accents. It was heaven for him and much needed... plus I didn't have to do any massaging. Until next year the training is done... which makes me very HAPPY!
I hope everyone enjoys our short version of our busy weekend! Thanks to all your support on the shots. I appreciate your kind and caring comments.
