Its no joke. I've been waiting a long time for another one, a year to be exact. I really needed this too; especially today.
Let me start off by the visit to the RE today. Lt.Col. B. has some mixed news for me today. He is excited about J and I wanting to pursue donor eggs but understands that we will only do so if he is able to re-enlist. If he can't re-enlist then there will be no children for us. Sorry but we can't afford to fork over almost 20k and have no income. We need to have our nest egg if he gets out.
So yes, I still have a cyst. It did shrink a little. I've been trying to follow a good diet and maybe its helping to reduce some of estrogen in my body because it shrank to 5 x 5 cm...maybe its not a cyst but a wooden building block? I guess I'll forgo getting a puppy since the tennis ball is deflating.
The nice doctor is however worried. I shouldn't have the cyst. It seems that the next step in the process, if I don't respond to the chemical treatment, is going to be surgery to remove my ovaries. Well and good if I weren't still wanting to have children! Lt.Col. B did agree that we might still have a slim chance with the Femera but its doubtful considering how my ovaries are now performing.
Now I'm waiting to hear back from the RE office as to the blood results on the HCG beta and Estridol. If the first is negative I'll be starting the Provera today.
Fun side note: Provera has another brand name called AMEN. I kid you not. I think perhaps a female waiting and waiting, its CD 92 for me today, for her AF to start might have had a say in naming that particular brand name.
Without further to-do here is the big reveal.....
From Harry Potter...the Monster Book of Monsters cake! Now I just need to decide where to put the candle. Just one this year. Its a special wish too. Last year I picked out a design for a Tardis Cake this year I searched long and hard to decide what I wanted my cake to look like finally deciding on one I saw on a search engine query. I love Harry Potter and I love Doctor Who. Now time for cake.
