“Sitting Here in Limbo…”

in IVF #2 (converted to IUI#1), Sean, Song Lyrics

I haven’t gotten “the call” yet and I am excited and anxious to find out which plan we are going with. Sean is taking a nice long nap and so I have had time to get some things done around the house and also wonder why the phone hasn’t rung yet. I started thinking about a song that I really like, sung by Jimmy Cliff, called “Sitting in Limbo.” I did a report on the movie “The Harder They Come” for a film class that I took in college. I fell in love with the soundtrack (which includes “Sitting in Limbo”) and bought the LP record, at the time I wrote the paper, to add to my collection. I was trying to recall the lyrics this afternoon and looked them up online. Though they don’t all apply to me/my situation right now, many of them do and I found reviewing them, with the tune of the song playing in my head, to be a therapeutic way to pass this time. Here are the lyrics, in case you are interested:

Sitting in Limbo

Sitting here in limbo, but I know it won’t be long
Sitting here in limbo, like a bird without a song
Well they’re putting up resistance
But I know my faith will lead me on

Sitting here in limbo, waiting for the dice to roll
Sitting here in limbo, got some time to search my soul
Well they’re putting up resistance
But I know that my faith will lead me on

I don’t know where life will lead me
But I know where I’ve been
I can’t say what life will show me
But I know what I’ve seen
Tried my hand at love and friendship
But all that is passed and gone
This little boy is moving on

Sitting here in limbo waiting for the tide to flow
Sitting here in limbo knowing that I have to go
Well they’re putting up resistance
But I know that my faith will lead me on

Sitting in limbo
Sitting in limbo

I know that our RE’s office was very busy this morning, which probably translates to being busy this afternoon, and thus not making calls until later in the day to patients. So I am trying to be a patient, patient! 😉 I know that regardless of which plan our RE chooses, the nurses will have to call the River North office to either schedule my ER for Wednesday morning or my appointment for tomorrow morning, which, among other things, I imagine has contributed to the fact that I have not gotten an answer either way yet. I will be back! 🙂
