A few weeks ago I imagined what it would be like to write this pregnancy blog post I’m sitting down to write right now. Today something BIG happened and yes, some tears were shed. That may not be a big deal with Pregnancy Jane’s hormones kicking in off the charts lately, but yeah, I’ll admit, I have some misty eyes today, too.
Pregnant Jane and I did it. We did it! We made the what seemed to be nearly impossible happen. No doubt that we had all the odds stacked against us. We were inches away from listing our house for sale in hopes we’d be able to sell it in under a month. We had no idea how we’d be able to come up with the money to pay for our doctor bills, and the huge bills from the hospital to bring Baby Tarzan into this world.
We were inches away from some really tough times ahead in nearly every aspect of our lives. The stress had been taken some big tolls on us – as you know from my previous blog posts about my visits to the doctor and the hospital thanks to stress.
Pregnant Jane and I can finally sit back this evening and take a DEEP breath. We did it.
Thanks to Jane and I working hard as a team and brainstorming some ideas and working together, we not only can afford to pay all of the hospital bills, but we do not have to worry about our house. We don’t have to sell… We can stay!
Because of this little windfall we worked for and received, I can now start my new business and things are already looking very, very good. Today was a magical day in so many ways. The right contacts I needed to make things happen to get my business started all fell into place. It was an amazing day!
It was also a very emotional day in between the 20-30 calls I was on and off. During the little breaks in between my calls, Jane and I would realize more and more. One big one that caused a little water fall for my beautiful pregnant wife was of the realization that we WILL have a nursery for Tarzan!
I feel soooo good knowing that we’re able to create a nursery for our little Baby Tarzan. I know that it meant the world to Jane to have a nursery, and it killed me to think that there was a possibility that we wouldn’t because we’d be renting some small house somewhere.
It was so good today to hold Jane and be able to tell her that everything is going to be alright. She’ll have her nursery. We don’t have to sell our home. We can pay all of the doctor bills. We can start my business. We can BREATHE again.
There’s so much I want to add here – but I’ve got a lot to do tonight and I’ll be writing more about this soon. Jane and I want to share how we were able to make something big happen in our lives and save ourselves so we can help other couples who are going through the absolute hell we’ve been going through for way too many months to count.
I’ll be sharing more about all of this as soon as I can.
Jane and I also wanted to send everyone a BIG thank you for being there for us during this crazy time. It’s because of all of your comments that made it a little easier to get through this. We appreciate all of you so very much. Thank you.
Also… something else is about to change….
Jane and I have worked hard to post a new blog everyday to share our journey with you and of course, someday Tarzan. Since we launched this blog on December 26, 2008, we only missed one day. However, this weekend we will not be posting at all.
Because our little pregnancy blog here is going to be getting a complete makeover. And for those of you who are our readers and commenters, we’ll have some special things in place for you that you’ll love. :)
So sometime next week we’ll launch the new His Boys Can Swim blog and we’re really excited about that too! It’s actually been a little project we’ve been working on for quite some time because there’s a lot of fun things we’ve wanted to do here, but we’ve been limited by our current design. Besides that, we want to run some more contests for you because we had so much fun and the way things are set up currently, it’s just way too much work for us.
Anyway, today is a good day. I feel about 382 pounds lighter… like a big 4,000 pound rock has been lifted from my chest. Well, I guess that would make me 4,000 pounds lighter, wouldn’t it? And come to think about it, I have no craving for ice cream tonight for the first time in over three months!
P.S… A private little note to my beautiful pregnant Jane… Beautiful, I just wanted to tell you that I love you so very, very much and I am so proud of you. We couldn’t have made this happen without each other and I’m so lucky to have such an incredible woman like you in my life. You are my everything and it means the world to me that you not only stuck it out with me during some of the toughest and stressful periods of our lives, but the fact that we pulled together as a team and made something big happen. You’re amazing and Baby Tarzan is going to have such an incredible mother that he’ll be so proud of. You and I make a pretty good team, don’t we? The fact that we did this only continue to proves that you and I can do anything we want when we set our minds to it. I’m so proud of you – and thanks for being such a great teammate. I love you so, so much.
