Nod in the direction of.........

Australian Federal Government who extend Medicare benefits to IVF processes. I recieved my reimbursement cheque which means I am down a total of $500 at the end of a frozen cycle (Instead of $3000). I am very grateful that finances is not a barrier for treatments here.

My cousin.... who is a joy to hang out with. In many ways like a sister. We beached it together last night as the sun was going down. The wind hot, the water cool, the light soft and coloured, the waves breaking even and strong. We body surfed together and because our bodies are pretty much replicas of each other we would swim onto the wave and then surface at the same spot at the end of our ride - grinning, cahooting and pulling togs back over our bits. (I did a serious nipple flash while jumping around going "Yes" after catching a particularly good ride - no wonder the other swimmers were grinning. I thought they were sharing my joy!)

Yourself... why not. You 're great.

I know the whole northern and southern hemisphere thing is real, but it's still weird to think of you basking in long summer days while we're getting drenched in winter rains with long nights. Makes me happy to think of the beach...thanks for the great visual ;-)

I'm amazed that a government would do that. Speechless.

I just spent $40k on a cycle ... so $500, that would be SWEET!

I'm glad you've got that support/help ... I wish we had that :-(
