I just don't know what I would do without all of you. Thank you all so much for being there for me during the two- (almost three-) month saga of the lump. It wasn't fun, but ultimately it had a good outcome and that's all that matters. The follow-up plan from my surgeon was minimal: continue doing self exams and scheduling regular appointment with my gyn. If another lump appears, they may consider doing regular mammograms, but since I'm so young and the lump didn't show up on the mammo anyway, they aren't going to require me to do any of that just yet.
And now my mind can shift back to my focus of having a baby. I can stop wondering whether or not I'm going to be able to continue treatments and start getting myself mentally prepped for next cycle and IUI#3. AF still is showing no signs of her arrival, which is a little frustrating. I'd really like her to arrive today or Sunday, for a number of scheduling reasons, but I fear that's being too picky.
Tonight I am going to dinner with a group of good friends. In a way, it will be my "celebration" of yesterday's good news. The rest of the weekend will be spent getting work done at the new place. This will be the first full weekend of work. I promise to post pictures of our progress. And I will also be signing up to take the GRE. Yes, you read that right. I'm going to grad school. Or I'm at least going to try. Library science has been an interest of mine for a while and one of the major universities here in Florida (coincidentally, my alma mater's biggest rival) offers a 100% online program. As long as we can get financial aid to cover the full cost, I'll be starting in the fall. I am going to try and take two courses a semester, but with working full time and getting pregnant (positive energy, positive energy), there may be semesters when I can only take one course at a time. So I'm not sure if I'm stupid or just certifiably nuts, but I think if I don't do it now, I'm never going to do it. Joey and I will be holding many study sessions together this fall!
What are your plans for the weekend?
