Impotent

For once, a post title not related to infertility, but to the way I feel, sitting at the computer, looking at the radar. Watching the chaotic swirl of the eye of the hurricane, passing over the heads of my mother and father. Knowing there is absolutely nothing I can do, except yearn for their safety.

Hang on, Florida. Hang on.

UPDATE:

They are OK, and were given the go-ahead to return home. The worst of it missed them by a hair. We are very relieved, and very grateful that it has turned out all right, but I think they are unnnerved and saddened by terrible devastation which has occurred elsewhere. Thank you for all your kind messages. I had a very sleepless night-it was odd to be so taken up with fretting about something other than my fertility woes!

Oh Mare - hope your parents are OK.
Have you been able to speak to them?

What an awful thing to have to do--sit and wait. I am fervently hoping that your parents are not in harm's way.
