She is getting so big. No longer are folks telling me what a small baby she is. They are often mistaking her for being a one year old.
She is taken steps when I hold her hands.
She loves to dance when I hold her hands and music is playing. Just yesterday she was dancing to The Count as he was counting to nine with the beat of the music. So cute!
She loves to shop. Yesterday I took her shopping for a few fill-in items (socks and a sun hat) and some bigger sizes for her closet. Of course, like most babies her age, she is attracted to the bright colors. When I placed neon pink pants on the counter to purchase my husband commented on how bright they were and I explained that she liked them. Yes, I give her some choices in colors and patterns.
I saw the pain doctor in Savannah yesterday. I want to get better and I will have to start with drugs first. If the drugs don't help they'll move me on to the next step. I really don't like taking drugs. For now I'm to start topamax back up. I used to take it for my migraines but it is also used for fibromyalgia treatment Dr.K. told me. Dr.K. doesn't like the idea of me putting off the carpal tunnel surgery for a few years. I want to wait until E is bigger; maybe school age.
I'll be using tramadol for the pain in my various spinal areas. I asked to not be put on a narcotic. I'll be using lidoderm patches as well. I was hoping for a new TENS unit but I guess that is in the far future. My old unit died.
The oophrectomy is set for the 28th of January. I'm not looking forward to the surgery but I am looking forward to the relief it is supposed to give me. I'm hoping that Dr.R. will be able to remove all of the visible endometriosis and adhesions too. The pain has been getting worse. Also the idea of losing my ovaries and possibly not being able to tolerate hormone therapy is not so pleasing. I have never done well with the hormone therapy even in the IVF and DEIVF.
Here is a photo of my little ballerina who did an accidental split this morning:
