I've been posting, but I figured this was as good a place to post this news. Some of you many know, my wife and I experienced a miscarriage last summer. It floored us both, and really made me hit rock bottom bringing on a heavy bought with depression and anxiety. Thanks to finally getting medication to help me out back in December, I'm feeling great, plus we have fantastic news. My wife is pregnant with our Son and she is due in early September, so Son Mattionals could share a birthday with his big sister!

My wife happens to suffer from Hyperemesis Gravidarum, which is a fancy latin way of saying pregnancy nearly kills her. I'm not exaggerating on that either. She literally was only gettin 400 calories a day and 5 oz of liquid while getting quite ill. She found an OBGYN who knows the condition and was able to help at week 8, and now at week 20, she is starting to really come around. Lots of bed rest, hardcore medication twice a day, and even more bedrest, but now we can breathe and live a bit more comfortably. All three Mattionals are very excited for our new (and final human) addition to the family at the end of summer!

Good news, man.  Sounds like you and I have more in common than we might both want, but I'm glad for you on the upcoming addition (another thing we have in common!).

Congrats to you man! Yea, it's been a rough handful of months, but things are definitely looking up.
