2 Volumes of The Walking Dead, a Question.

I am really digging the zombie thing running rampant in books right now. I tore through 2 volumes of The Walking Dead tonight and will be checking out McKay's shortly to see about picking up another few. Both get 5's from me.

The Walking Dead, Vol. 1: Days Gone Bye by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore begins with a normal, everyday shootout between a couple small town cops and an escaped prisoner. Rick, who is the hero of this tale, gets shot, then wakes up in a hospital. This next scene is straight out of 28 Days Later, so i wonder which came out first. Finding the hospital abandoned, except for a few zombies, he stumbles out and goes looking for his family.


The Walking Dead, Vol. 2: Miles Behind Us by Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard, and Cliff Rathburn takes up just a few hours after the last book ends. The story turns more toward group dynamics and we find out what's happening as the group breaks camp and travels away from Atlanta.

As for the question, it relates to the fact that i'm doing IComLeavWe this month. Hosted over on Stirrup Queens, you comment on 5 blogs every day for a week, as well as respond to one who's commented on yours. There are a good many blogs on the list that deal with infertility, having kids, parenting and adoption. i'm learning a lot as none of those topics are anything i know about. so what do mfi, PCOS and IUI stand for? I know what IVF/IF stand for and have figured out what TTC means. as for the others, i'm really just curious honestly, so thanks!

  1. The only one of those I know is PCOS - polycystic ovary syndrome, which is when the ovary develops cysts, which (I believe) make it hard to produce eggs and which has a negative impact on a woman's fertility. My best friend has this, which is how I know it. The other two...not sure.

  2. Another great zombie book: The Stupidest Angel:A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror, by Christopher Moore. It's top notch!

  3. I kind've like zombies as well, but I've always found them to be more funny than scary. I don't know what that says about me.

  4. To help you out, MFI stands for "male factor infertility." Meaning the issue lies with the man. Low sperm count, motility, whatever. Like a previous commenter said, PCOS is "poly-cystic ovarian syndrome." And IUI stands for "intrauterine insemination." It's a form of artificial insemination where the sperm are put straight into the uterus. Hope that helps!

    Happy ICLW!

  5. Lexi and Laurel- Thanks for the info!
    Poor Lucky Me- i've heard of that one but haven't picked it up yet.
    Laurel-they do seem to be the most ridiculous of monsters when you think about it.
