I have been so distracted and busy lately.

Between work, school and training I barely have the ability to cook and sleep properly. Thus, the bloggie, and my IF world attentions has suffered. But, seriously…who is dying to read about my laparotomy drama. Honestly.

Regardless and for the record, it’s been pushed off until November due to the fact that this three-hour, tandem surgery requires two specialists who’s dance cards are apparently almost full. But, it’s now finalized at last. So, I get to watch my poor husband fumble with our Thanksgiving turkey as I sit by and watch helplessly in the name of recovery.

All I know is, I got a “Go.Lytely” scrip hanging on my cork board laughing at me as the day before surgery grows near.


In my best Aunt Linda voice:  “This get’s one ‘Oh, brother’ and three ‘Criiiiippes’!”

Tomorrow morning is the first of three Lupron Depot shots. These are to ensure a proper healing phase after my Laparotomy in December 2008. Since I have been on Lupron before, this is nothing new, but I do have to say I am torn.  See? Not getting your period is super fantastic. You go to the gym with ease, you rarely get awful cravings around flo-time and there is no pain every month!! It is lovely.  The pain was truly unbearable and getting it to a manageable place is, and will be, an ongoing process.

It’s just this whole “trying-to-get-pregnant-and have-a-baby” thing that consumes us right now. I know, I know…”boo-hoo”. There are people that have been trying for kids for YEARS. This is a fact that I am slowly starting to snuggle into.  We are becoming those people.  Going on three years of treatments and surgeries for me, yeah…I’m one of those gals now.
