i'd like some cheese with my whine

In less than an hour, Joey will be going in for his third (and hopefully final) SA. I'm trying to stay positive and think that, this time, the numbers will be better. My hope is that they will have the results for me on Monday at my post-op appointment, but we'll see. At this point, I've accepted the fact that things usually don't go easily for us or happen how we plan them.

Evidence of this: home buying. Our realtor and loan officer are practically pulling teeth trying to get the bank to give them the closing day. They had planned on March 19, since that's the last possible day the contract will allow, but that is the day that my lumpectomy is now scheduled for. So we've thrown them for a loop and apparently closing one day earlier than that is a huge inconvenience or something.

(You can't see me, but I'm rolling my eyes.)

Generally, I am feeling better. My "issues" from my last post are still not 100% resolved. I'm hoping it works itself out so I don't need to take another one of those pills. Or drink more prune juice. NASTY. I'm sorer than usual today. Not sure if that's from almost a week of wearing dress pants, riding in the car, or something else. But the bleeding has calmed down, which is great considering I thought I was going to have to start wearing Depends in about a week.

I'm emotional. I'm tired. My body aches. And I just wish today was Friday.

I completely forgot when you said your lumpectomy was on the 19th that that was your closing day also. I would think that they would be so happy to sell a home in this economy that this wouldn't be an issue! UGH!

Hopefully things went well today for Joey and he (and you) dont' have to go through it again. I hope that the weekend comes quickly for you and that you two can enjoy yourselves, hopefully in sweats. Confining clothes after surgery is not fun.

UGH....nothing ever goes smoothly does it? If it's not one thing, it's another.

Wishing you guys the best SA results to date and that they can move the closing date up a day. Thinking of you.

Stefanie Blakely said...

Agreed. Totally ready for Friday.

I'm so sorry that you aren't feeling well today-- it sounds like a rough recovery. :( I hope that each day gets a little better.

On a side note, I am so excited for you about the house. I know the home buying process is a pain in the ass, but what a huge accomplishment!!

Good luck to Joey today!!!

I hope your DH's SA has better results than in the past.

Our closing was insane as well. They actually cancelled it a few hours before we closed on one day because of something going on with one of the attorneys. Seriously, they need to regulate when that stuff is gonna happen.

Let us know how Joey's SA goes.

Rebecca said...

So sorry that so much is on top of you at once!!!

Thinking all sorts of positive thoughts for the S/A.

I hope everything goes well for you - the SA, the lumpectomy and the closing date. You have a ton on your plate right now - that is never fun.

I've had you in my T&P for a while now, just know you're still there.

Arlyne said...

you're a true champ going through all this crap at the same time!

Hope the SA went well, & that you get some great news at your pot op appointment!

Ashley said...

Ugh. I hope everything works out! And for your "issue" have you tried figs? I think they are nasty, but I've been eating them and they have helped a little. And even just a little bit more relief is appreciated!

JC said...

I'm hoping you have better SA results, really hoping! And I also hope they can work it out to close a day earlier, I mean REALLY, can't they do that??!! Ugh!

I hope Joey's SA went well today and that you get great results!

I know this closing thing has been such a pain for you. Can't anything in life be easy??

Glad you're feeling better although I know you must be looking forward to the weekend and wearing sweats! Dress pants aren't comfortable even on good days! :)

Katie said...

I hope things went well at the sa today! (xxfingers crossedxx)

I'm sorry you're not feeling too fantastic and I know getting the run-around about the house closing only makes everything more frustrating!

((hugs))

Dawn said...

Sending you positive thoughts for Joey's SA.

I hope the can move that closing day up!

Alice said...

I'm glad your on the mend, but I hear you about Friday!

Sorry to hear about the closing date issues. Can't these people get some perspective in life!

Wishing all the best with SA results. You guys deserve some smooth sailing.
