I started to write a post the other day about my reaction to OBL's death, but I couldn't quite find the right words. I deleted and rewrote numerous times, and I finally trashed it after I watched this video last night. Because Anderson Cooper says it a million times better than I ever could.
Over the past couple of weeks, I realize I've been both absent from commenting and vague in my posts. I think I needed a break.
Some of you follow me on Twitter and know that I bit the bullet and made an appointment with yet another doctor - this time at a teaching hospital in Tampa. I first called and made an appointment with a general gynecologist. But then a friend of mine who had IVF done at this same hospital's RE clinic emailed the top two REs and explained my situation. One wrote back almost immediately and, after exchanging several emails, his assistant called and booked me an appointment for tomorrow morning.
I made perfectly clear to him in my emails that we have no interest in getting pregnant. We simply want a solution (or at least a reason) for the chronic cysts. Overall, I'm hopeful, but at the same time, I'm trying not to get my hopes up. The last thing I want is to be let down by yet another doctor (RE#3). So, we head to Tampa tomorrow morning with guarded excitement. Wish me luck. The way my record is with medical professionals, I might need it.
