Surgery

I had my d and c surgery yesterday at Sacred Heart Hospital in Spokane. We had to be there at 7am to fill out some paperwork and to have blood taken. My actual surgery was at 9am and everything went fine. The dr. showed Bobby the before and after pictures of my uterus, which totally grossed him out, but he said that it looks really good.

I am feeling pretty good today. No pain meds - just some mild cramping that really isn't too bad. I decided to take today off work to let my body rest one more day. It probably wasn't overly necessary, but I just feel like I have put my body through so much these past couple months, that I should give it a little time to recoup.

Dr. Robins said that we will definitely want to go ahead with the frozen embryo transfer soon since the polyps would most likely grow back in about 3 months. Yuck. He did mention that the d and c should actually increase our odds of implantation, so I was very excited about that. I was told to stop my birth control (I only had 2 days left anyway) and to go ahead and let my body have a normal cycle.

It sounds like I might be getting my calendar soon, so that is great news. I like being able to know what is coming up....I'm a planner.

Anyway, I'll let you all know when I get started on the series :-)
