IVF CD19: A thief! (Non-ttc related)


 *This post is non-TTC related with the exception of the at-a-glance section at the bottom.

Well, if I were looking for a way to keep my mind occupied as we enter out #TWW, I’ve located one!
This morning, S. discovered that someone had broken into his work office and stole his personal laptop and professional video camera (both used daily for his job). The video camera was an industry pro and utilized as he handles his company’s media, editing, and layout. The laptop is his and is loaded with his professional software (he self-purchased) and all of that cost a lot. But even worse, (because tangible material stuff can be replaced), the laptop has our family’s personal information on. Socials, addresses, budget spreadsheets, appointments, etc. All of it. And someone just walked away with ALL of it.

When he told me, my mind wanted to panic. But I managed to sigh and take a deep breath. The discharge instructions and our nurse have clearly said NOT to stress during the next few days. I couldn’t get crazy. So, I listened as S. and I created a divide and conquer plan. I’ve contacted the credit bureaus and have initiated fraud alerts to prevent new accounts and credit from being opened. I’ve also contacted my companies’ security office(s) to make sure they are aware of it in case anything untoward happens.

The good news is I had a colleague tell me that the operating system that S. uses is one of the most difficult to encrypt and even if by some magic they were able to use the computer, they wouldn’t be able to access the files without being a hacker extraordinaire based on the additional protocols we use. That made me feel better. The bad news is the computer also had some sentimental pictures and things on it that are irreplaceable. Those things S. can’t get back and as he isn’t a big fan of clouds. It can pretty much be counted gone.  Also, are the notes and projects he has already started for his job.  That's okay though.  He is still in good spirits and I know it will be okay.

I hope everyone has a good evening and I will write again, soon.
