Quebec will fund IF treatments!

Today, there is some great news on the infertility front here in Canada. At least ONE province has stepped up to the plate...

Quebec to fund in vitro fertility treatments (link to the article on the CBC News site)

It's wonderful to see some movement by a provincial government on this issue. I know the Ontario government has begun their own studies and made recommendations to the same effect (I was interviewed by Ontario's Expert Panel for this process). And with some luck, the same funding will soon be available in Ontario. I can only hope.

Makes me wonder if I ought to hold out a bit, if we're going to try for a second child. Who knows, it may be funded after all...

On a personal note, I'm looking for two bloggers.

The first is Mick (previously from and more recently from irishpolishdad at wordpress). Both blogs are MIA and I've no e-mail address for Mick and his wife. I'd love to know how things are going and/or follow along with his story. If you know where to find Mick (or Mick, you're visiting my blog today!) jot me a note with your contact details please! You can find me at jiliana2 (at) gmail (dot) com.

The second is a dear blogger who said she would like a Refund On These Ovaries ( The title of her blog had changed to Over My Ovaries and On With my Life and detailed her and her DH's efforts to pursue adoption in their state. I haven't been as diligent with commenting over there and now I've lost access! If you have her e-mail address, let me know so I can get in touch and request access.

Petite's RSV isn't as severe. She's still not 100% so a planned driving trip to WV and VA next week had to be cancelled. C'est la vie. One of many sacrifices for our daughter in the years to come.
