It's about time

The Nobel Prize committee awarded biologist Robert G. Edwards, who along with his colleague M.D. Patrick Steptoe pioneered the in-vitro fertilization procedure for treating infertility, the Nobel Prize in medicine this morning.

Well done Nobel Prize committee. Four million children (so far) and their grateful families agree that Edwards and Steptoe's work is well worth honoring.

I'm so excited about this - I think it's the first time I've shed tears of joy over a Nobel prize.

Hey there! So glad you dropped by my blog to say hi and pass on condolences. I have thought about you a lot since FF. I found your blog AGES ago, somehow, by which time you seemed to have stopped posting for a very great length of time, so I never commented. I just assumed you'd stopped blogging, as lots of people do. So I stopped checking.

I am glad you haven't stopped, and that we've made contact again. I'm sorry your latest/last IVF was unsuccessful, but I totally understand your feelings on closure and am glad you have some peace with it. And that you are happy in your life.

Soon I am moving my blog to a new site with password protection. email me on if you want a password.

Much love. xx
