The good news is that when I got weighed in yesterday at the doctor’s office….I had lost 5lbs. Not much, but it’s something. Better than having that 5lbs still there. WAY better than gaining 5lbs.
The bad news is:
#1- I am becoming increasingly more uncomfortable. The talk about endometriosis has come up again. This is a diagnosis I received when I was about 19. But then I became pregnant at 20 and when you become pregnant the symptoms actually stop because of the no period thing when you’re pregnant. But now it’s 2 and half years out from my LAST birth, so the symptoms are back, the cysts are back and I must have 2 ultrasounds done Friday morning at the hospital. Depending on what those show, we take it from there.
#2- Lump is still in breast and so I can be sure at the very least that I will be having a biopsy done in the coming months, but most likely that the good boob doctor will be opening up old wounds and taking it out completely, because he thinks it’s scar tissue left over form my surgery that is flawing his “work”.
God, I love being a girl! (insert heavy sarcasm) periods, pregnancy, child birth, menopause and all the many complications that can arise from any of the above. Men have it so easy. BUT, It could always be worse and with that I digress.
I got to go out with my Mom last night. Just a trip to Wal-Mart for Pull-Ups, but still it’s a very rare occasion that my Mom and I are without one of my children in tow, even if we were still shopping for one. She bought me an ice cream cone from McDonald’s on the way home, which I found very endearing.
Interesting fact of the day
