PUPO... for the Last Time....


So.... Snap, Krackle & Pop made it "home" safe and sound yesterday morning. The whole thing was almost bittersweet know it will be the last time I will see the nurses who work in the retrieval/transfer area. The cell counts were good with an 8 cell, and 2 7 cells. All 3 got assisted hatching done right before they were transferred. Now I just sit back and wait for my Beta on the 5th.
Clark has had a little bit of a bad week. Monday he hit a deer with his car, so we had it put in the shop, not much damage really, but just enough. So yesterday he takes the van that we use to drive Kent in, and ends up calling me at 4:30 to inform me that he is broken down along the freeway and I need to get him a tow. So I did, and the $500 deductible that we didn't have to pay due to the deer being an "act of God", we now have to shell out plus some for the vans water pump!! Good times I tell you!! I told him that he had to walk to work on Friday for fear of him making it a trifecta!!
Kent actually left the house today. He road the handicap bus system and went out to a movie. Although Clark will have to pick him up as he misjudged the time that his movie was going to end, and the last bus out to this end of the county runs at 4pm. It worked out for him because Clark will be in town dropping his truck off and picking up the van. I know it was a little off timing, but it was an attempt at something towards him being more independent... never mind that we have been telling him to do this for 2 years!! :o)
Oh I almost forgot, I guess my whining to you guys about his surgery date must have been heard by "someone" we now have a surgery date for Kent of the 24th of August. The bad thing.... school starts the 25th. I will have to let the school know, but his recovery time should be minimal. I also told them to leave us on the cancellation list just in case we can get in earlier!!
Well, I am off to rest as much as I can with a very high maintenance 18 month old!!! Hugs to the Internets!!

Vaguely remembered something about these elves from a history of animation class I took about twenty years ago... here is the google info:

Snap is the oldest of the group. He solves the problems his two brothers create and wears a chef's hat.

Crackle is the good-hearted, fun middle child.He's the leader of the group and the smartest of the trio. He gets stuck keeping order between his brothers’ personalities and wears a red-and-white-striped stocking cap.

Pop is the clumsy younger child. He plays jokes, doesn’t take things seriously and wears a band leader's hat.

There was a fourth elf character who was named Pow who was supposed to represent the explosive nutritional value of Rice Krispies but who was later discontinued.

For what it's worth, seems like problem-solving Snap is the one to watch!

Sorry I'm joining the party late but wanted to let you know that you have my prayers and all the good thoughts I can muster.

Hope your vehicles behave from here on out and glad to hear Kent is making efforts.
