Thursday's Connections Abound

Welcome to today's edition of Connections Abound. The Lost and Found page is permanently located beneath this current post. Old Connections Abound can be accessed via the date or subject archives listed on the sidebar. Check the submissions page, FAQ, and ways to get involved for additional information. Email me at with any questions/concerns.

Please support the list as well as anyone posting announcements below.

Connections Abound

  • An update from Mary: "Someone is really messing with me. My numbers EXACTLY doubled. I test again on Friday. I don't want to go on this roller coaster again if we don't get the prize at the end. I don't want to start hoping, but it is creeping in. We never have had a number that doubled before. What to think?"
  • Tomorrow is the 50th Connections Abound! Happy anniversary, little Lost and Found.
  • Serenity on the move. She's packing her bags and moving to Wordpress. Find her in her new home at Serenity Now!.
  • Forever Hopeful is going password-protected...sniff. If you are a reader or would like to be a reader, please send her an email at to get an invite.
  • Leave a wish. Support a wish.
NEW BLOGS (started in September or October of 2007)
BIRTHDAYS AND ANNIVERSARIES:A new section. Celebrate your birthday or blogoversary with the community. Send me dates for October/November right now and I'll post them on the correct day.
  • None Today.
MISCELLANEOUS SUPPORT:Bed rest, scary scans, OHSS, and a host of other reasons why these bloggers could use some additional support right now. Also, celebrations!
  • Sharah has her professional licensing exam tomorrow (Friday). Let's flood her comments box today with encouragement and good thoughts to give her energy for tomorrow's 8-hour exam.
  • Polkadot seems to be doing okay this week, but she could still use a hug. Tuesday was the anniversary of her first unfulfilled due date and today is the anniversary of her second. Please go over and give some support.
  • Go wish Baby Quest good luck--they're doing another round of IVF right now!
  • Steinbockfrau's Hep C test came back positive. She could really use your support right now.
  • Tina saw the heartbeat!
  • A positive for Farah at Fertilize Me. Beta of 473! Go over and wish her congratulations.

Happy 50th post to our little treasure LaFaCA! (Okay, I'm a day early but I don't think I'll have a chance to get on the computer tomorrow.)

I thought I was hopelessly hooked on Bloglines until you started this up. Now I salivate on my keyboard each day, dying to see what little nuggets of information are being told. I love being able to drop in on someone new to offer support or congratulations! Thank you for yet another beautiful brainchild.

To Mary: hang in there. Hoping it all works out. Unfortunately, only time will tell, but in the meantime, doubling is good. It means you're still in the game.
