tagged, etc

I’ve been tagged by both Dramalish and Lut C. And maybe others?

5 things in my fridge:

There are lots of things in my fridge, I’ll just list a few…
1) one lonely remaining slice of peach pie that my sister made last weekend
2) leftover chicken mixture for baked chicken chimichangas
3) queso fresco
4) strawberries
5) asparagus

5 things in my closet:

1) lots of clothes – both mine and J’s – of course?
2) an empty dresser that has no home
3) a straw hat
4) a broken lamp
5) a loose change vase (we don’t have any jars large enough)

5 things in my car:

1) an old paper cup that had yummy tea in it from my yoga class
2) a key to the mailbox
3) several CDs
4) 4 maroon “dog” towels – my girl runs with me and gets dirty a lot
5) an umbrella

5 things in my purse:

1) my watch (the battery is dead and I put it in there so I can get it changed)
2) a pair of contact lenses
3) 3 types of medication (birth control pills, Parlodel (for the nipple discharge), and Lexapro (anti-depressant))
4) shiny pink lip gloss
5) a fluorescent orange pen

I’m not going to tag, I think the entire blogiverse has already been tagged.

My big news for the day, week, month? I have my pre-Lupron sonogram one week from today. Yeah, you read that right. They are going to attempt to let me cycle again NOW. Well, really in July.

I didn’t expect this – I am both excited and nervous. I’m a little scared, too. Excited – well – we all know why – this could be “the one”.

Nervous – mostly about whether or not the sonogram in a week will look good – 5 weeks ago I still had a nasty cyst on the left and some fluid on the right. Hopefully that will be gone?

Scared – that I can’t handle this again so soon. That it will fail (again).

On the other hand, I know I can handle it. I know I am strong enough. The sonos, the shots, the retrieval – those are the easy parts. It’s all the stuff after.

I think I need to actually update this blog.

  1. I know you have mixed feelings, and that is natural, but I am happy to hear that they are prepared to let you cycle again so soon as that likely means you are doing much better, physically at least. Good luck!

  2. You are strong… and you CAN handle it. That’s why they are going forward! ! GOOD LUCK!!!

  3. Waiting can be torture. I hated waiting when I wanted to be cycling. Every month I wasn’t in treatment felt like a waste of time. Now, of course, I’m “getting stronger” or hiding my head in the sand — it depends on my self esteem which way I look at it 😉

    You are strong. Mixed feelings are normal, but forward motion can be cathartic.

  4. Your girl looks like one of my favorite dogs EVER. His name is Danka, and he lives on an island off the coast of Cartagena. He’s up for anything all the time. Whenever I go to that island I look forward to seeing Danka.

    Your girl even smiles like him.

  5. Mrs. Hope, WOW! Sonogram next week?! I’m excited for you. After all you’ve been through of course you’re nervous and scared and hopeful. I’m all of those things for you too!

    G-d knows you’ve experienced enough bad luck, it’s certainly time for only good things to happen. Wishing you the all-clear at the u/s next week.

  6. I think you’re strong enough. And we will be here to support you the whole way.

  7. Oh, how exciting! I can understand being apprehensive, but at least you’ll get to tackle this cycle while you’re off work over the summer. I’m glad you posted, I’ll be one more person praying for you!

  8. That’s wonderful that they are going to persue another cycle before the office is closed.

    I will continue to keep you in my prayers and thoughts. You are right this could be the ONE!

  9. Oooh! Isn’t that exciting! Good luck with the sonogram.

  10. Good for you, Mrs. Hope, for getting back up there again.

  11. I understand the mixed feelings. But going forward is at least going somewhere and it’s better than doing nothing and wondering “what if?” Good luck.
    I will be trying a frozen embryo transfer in August again. The odds are against me, but I have to try. After the infertility, the IUIs, the failed IVF, the ectopic pregnancy, the failed methotrexate, and the surgery to remove the ectopic (and my tubes), it is the only option I have left. I am praying for both of us.
