Off the ledge

I have been reading and absorbing all of your comforting words. I am feeling much less anxious, thanks to your reassurances and information, and was even able to talk coherently to Dr. FYC yesterday evening and get a better idea of how optimistic he is. He said everything looked "as he would have expected" and he feels that #1 is pretty strong, and that #2 might, indeed, make it, too. I can not quite bring myself to think optimistic twin thoughts as it seems strangely greedy to want anything more than the one I had tentatively started to imagine before the ultrasound. But I'm trying to keep hopefulness from outweighing fear, and I think the balance has truly started to shift.

Thank you, kind people. I can't imagine trying to go through this without you.

Your LDL ldl cholesterol may go out of control and there will not be enough HDL ldl cholesterol to aid in unclogging your arteries. If your body cannot maintain a proper balance then there are many medications to keep your ldl cholesterol levels in check, although it is possible to raise your HDL ldl cholesterol levels with exercise and quitting smoking, if you were a smoker. These drugs are called statins, and if you have a ldl cholesterol problem then you should ask your doctor whether or not you should be taking them. This good ldl cholesterol does the exact opposite of low density lipoprotein, or LDL which just build up inside your bloodstream and get stuck on the walls of your arteries. When your body ages, this system falls apart. What exactly is good ldl cholesterol? The HDL then comes to the rescue, and unsticks the HDL ldl cholesterol from your artery walls, and prevents your arteries from being clogged, and saving you from a possible heart attack. 5, but that could rarely happen naturally in you later years of life. This gradual breakdown occurs over many years, and takes place in men at about age 45 and in women it happens when they reach menopause. It is known in the medical field as high density lipoprotein, or just HDL to make it simple. If there is a ratio of below 1 to 5 with your HDL ldl cholesterol and your total ldl cholesterol level then you are considered okay, and it is best if you can have a ratio of 1 to 3.

"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Global Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth before they can
be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number of other benefits.
Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and the lack of oils and sap found in the wood
make it resistant to forest fire, ensuring higher returns on investments.

the wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140 Million
with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With anticipated
growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153 Million in revenues.
As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree continues to grow around the world
EGTY believes additional multi-million dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of 250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business owners in New Zealand,
Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular and profitable fast growing infant tree plants.
Inquiries from the governments of Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
This stock will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!

I understand how nervous you were about those numbers, this is a very tentative and fragile time, both in our hearts and in our bodies. I'm glad to hear you're feeling better about it. Maybe we could come up with some kind of game to make the next couple of weeks go faster.........

Oh, Bugs! You certainly do sound more hopeful, and it's wonderful.

So glad you're feeling a bit less anxious. Wouldn't it be great if you could be like Monica & Chandler and think you had one healthy one and only find out about twins at the actual birth? (How can that happen in this day and age?)Regardless, the fact is the IVF worked and that is glorious. So happy for you and Jeff.

I'm glad you are feeling better. Don't feel bad about feeling "greedy"- I obsess daily about the fact that if The Cutie Pie had been twins, I wouldn't have had to go through IVF #s 2, 3, & now 4.

P.S. What is up with all these really bizarre comments (eg, cholesterol)?

I think greedy is totally appropriate, but since you're hesitant to appear so, I'll do it for you, and also throw healthy, safe and trouble free onto my wish list for you.

Good Lord Woman! Clean up around here will ya?? (lol). Between the trolls and the spam, I've been doing nothing but cleaning up my blog comments these days!

I'm glad your doctor has been reassuring you. Keep up the positive thought!

Oh my God where have I been the last two days! I can't imagine what all must be going through your mind right now. Twins! One! Who the heck knows? I will just keep saying prayers that both sacs keep developing healthily. Wow. I am getting kind of excited for you!

Glad to hear you're feeling better about things.

Never thought I'd be quoting Godon Gekko but "Greed is Good."
