CD 1 Again and Again and Again
On 25 October 1906, the British sailing vessel the Peter Iredale landed on a sandbar off the coast of Clatsop Beach where it stuck and is still today. No known deaths.
This was perhaps the only day I didn't have to use my cane on the trip. Because of this our first day of a mini holiday I wore myself out. I climbed, walked and played. I paid for it the following days but really it was worth it to just have fun for one day.
The Column stands 125 feet high and has 164 steps half of which I climbed. It was dedicated on 22 July 1926 and its original cost was $27,133.96. However the cost to restore the column alone in 1995 was one million, the staircase another six hundred thousand and that was done in 2008. Crazy how much stuff costs these days.
Okay so today is the beginning of hopefully a long cycle for me. I'd like this cycle to last approximately 40 weeks give or take a couple of weeks. You ladies know what I mean.
J had the last two of his wisdom teeth pulled at 0720 hrs today so I'll get my HCG blood test tomorrow and pick up my clomid at the pharmacy while I'm at it. This is our very last chance with my DNA. I'm not worried, I can always do donor eggs. I know its still a pipe dream but hey I know for a fact all of us infertile bloggers keep trying against the odds.
By the way the test results for the Celiac came back as unequivocal unpronounced. I only have a sensitivity to the gluten which is a good thing but still sucks. Still my stomach has been hurting more and more with anything I put in it. I'll have to keep that appointment with the gastroenterologist for later this month.
This coming Monday I have an ultrasound to see if I'm ovulating. I hope I will be, fingers crossed. I'll post more photos and information tomorrow. Now its time to go baby my hubby as I'm sure after having two teeth pulled he needs some loving care.
