After a very long week...I'm pooped.

I feel like I totally asked a very important question of all of you and then went MIA. I kind of did, sorry! The reason being, last week, was my by far busiest week of the year. The last week of January, I typically have to have our prior year's financials tied up in a big fat bow, which usually equates to a few  long days and late nights. So I'll apologize now for my lack of response or update or participation in some of my threads. It was a crazy week!!!

First of all, so sorry for anyone that's been singing Whitney Houston's "How Will I Know" every time they visit my blog and read my last post title. Didn't even cross my mind, thill that was pointed out to me. I've been doing it since then as well. Crap.

Now that is out of the way, lets get down to business. I'm on cycle day 3, so my hope for a miracle BFP on a natural cycle kinda went up in flames. Who am I kidding? I knew it would, but hey, gotta still give it that honest effort. However, I was in a bit of a funk this weekend. I've been doing so good as far as keeping the faith and a good attitude. Leave it to AF to really bring you down. God love my husband for dealing with my ups and downs. A little image I found that really struck at my heart. 



That means...I'm still on for surgery on Tuesday. After my question last week I took all of your advice. I looked up the reports online for each doctor. I also emailed Dr. Chicago a few questions and 1) I emailed him at 7 pm at night and he responded right away. I emailed him again that next morning and again, he responded right away. The nurse even called me later that morning. So obviously, the response time is great. I love that I have an "assigned" nurse to me. They maybe a large clinic, but I certainly feel like they are on it regardless of how many patients they may have. 2) He was completely on board with me having the surgery here. Honestly, it makes more sense. A routine surgery like this, is obviously better to have close to home vs. 3 hours away. 

That said, Dr. Indy was so nice. He was so positive and reassuring. That was what made me like him so much. However, his stats don't show much as far as DOR patients. Chicago does. They do ALOT more in volume as well. My gut says Chicago, but I can do my monitoring here in Indy, so I guess I'll kind of have 2 doctors. That's not necessarily a bad thing. 

So, surgery is Tuesday at 3:30 pm. Sheesh. I can't eat/drink after midnight. Hello torture?!?! What does suck, is that my hubby will be traveling this week. So I'm on my own for surgery. Not really, the BFF, is going to take me to surgery and my SIL will be staying with me the night of. However, I know that I can be puny when sick or in pain, so I'm really gonna miss him. I didn't want to put things off another month, so I'm just going to suck it up. I do have this sweet guy to help get me through this week...


So unlike the first time I had a lap 5 years ago, I do NOT plan to return to work the day after. I plan on staying home for the rest of the week, resting up and healing. Luckily, I can work from home and see no point in rushing back to work. I plan on cuddling with the fat furbabies, snacking on some dill pickle tater chips and noshing on the carrot cupcakes with orange cream cheese icing I made today! I may throw in a bubble bath towards the end of the week if I'm allowed. Have I mentioned this guy will even follow me into a bath tub?! Crazy cat. 


I'll update a lot more Tuesday or Wednesday once the anesthesia has worn off with the deets on the surgery. I also plan on having a come to jesus chat with my reproductive organs. Maybe that's what they need to really put this into high gear. 

For now, I'm going to go back to this Super Bowl game that has officially become a GAME since I started writing this. Did I mention I'm drinking champagne from a can. With a straw. 



C-L-A-S-S-Y!

  1. Ha, ha. I'm laughing at your champagne. I love those cans. :) Good luck with your lap on Tuesday. Thinking you won't be able to take a bath this week with open wounds. My doc cut me off from baths. But I hope your surgery goes really smoothly.

    1. You know, I'm pretty picky about my wine/champagne and it was pretty good. Straw and all!! :)

      Kinda knew I wouldn't get a bath in for a while. I'll probably try for one tonight before surgery. It's just my peaceful, happy place, so a girl has to dream!!

  2. I forgot to tell you...my hubby leaned over to look at my computer and saw your first pic...he said "yeah, it does" and looks at me. LOL. What a brat! I think he just called me broken. :)

  3. It's sounds like you've come to a good decision. I will be thinking of you on Tuesday as you embark on this surgery and the recovery after. I am a firm believer in the healing powers of of fur babies. I've got the canine variety. Every month Bobo (my sensitive soul) will lay on my tummy when I have cramps. It's almost as if he feels my pain. Oh and hey. CD3 buddy. I swear our cycles have been spot on since connecting in November.

    1. It's almost like roommates that end up on the same cycle. You chat/hang out enough, you sync up!!

      Love fur babies. All varieties. They are the best.

  4. I have always wondered how that champagne is. They don't sell it down here, but my sisters who live in St. Louis have it. I will have to try that out next time I'm up there!

    Your kitties are soooo cute! I'm glad you have someone helping you this week, and I'm sure your hubby will be spoiling you the minute he gets back. Please let us know how you're doing after for sure.

    Glad you did some more research, threw out some feelers to the RE's and are formulating a plan based on the response. It sounds like you've got a good game plan going! I think our RE's (your Dr.Chicago) sounds similar. Being in a bigger practice has it's benefits because of their expertise, and it is nice having your own personal nurse. Just because it's bigger doesn't always mean it's less personal if the machine works well. I'm so excited for you to have good new people to work with!

  5. Oh my gosh, I love the champagne in the can with a straw! I've never heard of such a thing but that is amazing :) I'll definitely have to see if I can find it somewhere around here.

    I love your cats, they are so cute! That's fun that you have a bath buddy :) Hopefully they are good snugglers and can keep you company after your surgery. I'm glad that you are going to take it easy and not go back to work right away. Keep us posted how it goes, you're in my prayers!

  6. Hey! Just started following your journey.... Good luck on your lap. I had one last summer and it went really well. I was only out of commission for about a week and half, but it took about 6 to heal completely.

  7. Sounds like your Dr's have a good game plan. Isnt it nice to have your own personal nurse? I dont have one but when I do get to speak to the same one it feels more comforting. Best of luck on your surgery and take your time to relax afterwards to heal properly.

  8. I like your double RE plan! Sounds perfect! I hope everything went well with your lap today and you are at home recovering and resting now. Glad you took the week off so you can rest and take care of yourself. I LOVE your little buddy. I have one that likes to hang out on the tub too and keep me company. I totally understand feeling down even with a good RE and a plan and I go back and forth with how I feel. *hugs* I'm excited for this next chapter.
