Long Version of Our "Journey"

Because the right side of my blog has become quite full with this chronological "novel" of our Infertility, I decided to change what you see to the cliff's notes version and have this available for people who want the whole story....enjoy. Or, please don't enjoy. It sucks. Balls.
