Random Thoughts

U/S and blood draw was this morning, and I’m down to just two lead follies (one on each side….. a little less exciting than last cycle) 16×15 and 15×15. Another check on Friday, and possible IUI Saturday or Monday.

Did you watch American Idol last night? It was my hometown (Philly) night, and I am now convinced that I live in the land of crazies and crack whores. Most of the people that got through to the next round weren’t even from Philadelphia. Am I going to do another season of weekly AI posts here when the finals start? Hmmmmmm… I don’t know, I’ll have to see if the mood strikes me.

Work…. has been heinous. I am working myself into the ground, all while surfing job postings. I’ve decided I need a change.

I started walking two weeks ago as a means to get healthier and lose weight while I am in infertility hell. Yesterday, I almost had a heart attack when a neighbors dog (tied to a tree… don’t get me started) lunged at me as I walked by and almost cracked its neck. That’s the second time in two weeks that I had a dog incident. Now I know why people use treadmills. It’s not always safe on the mean streets of the Jersey suburbs.

It’s 3 weeks to my 40th birthday (Feb. 2nd). Sigh.

another Senior moment

We had to take our dog, Teddi, to the vet yesterday to remove a small tumor on her eye. As luck would have it, the vet ran some bloodwork before the surgery and it didn’t look good.
Do you see what I mean when I say 2006 has not been a banner year in my house?
David is still not over the death of dear kitty in September, and now we are in waiting with our dear dog.
She is going to be 12, so she’s not a puppy for sure… we know that she is in her “golden years” as far as pets go, and her breed lifespan. It’s just that it’s Christmas, and I don’t want David to lose a second pet so soon.
So here’s the lowdown… $800 bucks later (well, at least her eye is fixed now) we were told that the bloodwork on her liver came back very abnormal. The likely diagnosis at this point is Cushing’s disease (treatable, but expensive and can extend her life minimally) OR cancer. To diagnose the issue, we are faced with about another $500 in tests.
Neither hubby and I were ready to put down more money. We decided to bring her home and think about it. The odd thing is she is not having any symptoms yet… so we are watching to see if her appetite changes, or anything out of the ordinary.
I hate making these type of decisions… S. does too.
OK 2006 (again) please stop torturing me!
