I have no idea if today was my 1,000th RE appointment or not, but there was something new about this appointment.
Today I told Dr. H that Al and I are stopping treatments after I run out of the medications I have. Of course he told me that he completely understands after all we have been through and that he still has a few months left to try. Okay doctor if that makes you feel better, but please don't say it for my benefit.
Phew. Telling him felt good. It is making all of this real for me and that is exactly what I needed.
Okay for today's news. I had three left over cysts from this past cycle. The biggest was 26x27. I will know later today if my E2 levels are low enough to proceed. If not then we take a break on this cycle. Which at this point doesn't bother me.
So yesterday we took both our dogs to the "dog wash". Since it is winter here, I am tired of trying to wash them in my bathtub. As much as I love my pups, I hate having to share a tub with them. So we found a place that is a self service dog wash and decided to try it out. At first the boys were so excited at the fact they were going on a road trip. We pulled up and opened the back, they both ran to the front and would not get out. After some persuading we were able to get them out of the car. Izzy was shaking horribly, he was so scared. I almost felt bad for them, but that was overtaken by the feeling that they needed a nice bath.
Here are a few pictures:
Before I leave this post today I would love some advice. I started walking/running and would love some suggestions on good shoes and something to hold my phone when I am exercising.
