Well this entry is LOOOOOOOOOOOOONG overdue. As I sat down to try to sort out where to start and what to say, I realised I have quite a bit to say so this might be the first update of many.
I think I will do it in bullet lists to help make things a bit easier to understand:
* I recovered from my surgery quite well. No other complications (except scars that look like division signs).
* I found it surprisingly easy to come to terms with what the Doctor said about my future chances (30%).
* I was coping quite well, until we got a depressing letter a few days before Christmas that made things sound A LOT more bleak. I do believe the number 10% was used. It was awful to get right before an already difficult holiday, and put a different “spin” on how Chris and I celebrated the holidays.
* We finally got a new appointment for the end of January (this was an URGENT appointment made 2 months later – welcome to the NHS system). The Doctor was very nice and said I would need further surgery and a bit more serious. At the end of the day, my chances to conceive naturally are just as good as IVF (to me that is hopeful). They said to call in 10 days after the appointment to find out when the surgery was… now over a month later… we are still waiting (nearly 2 whole years since the whole process started – you’d think 2 months wouldn’t make a huge difference – BUT IT DOES!)
I have so many things that I want to talk about, complain about, and be thankful about – but it is late, so that will have to wait.
I continue to be amazed at the support I get from dear friends and family. Thank you… your comments are not ever read without a tear in my eye and a prayer of thanks in my heart.
More later… and be prepared, BOY do I have some complaints to get off my chest!
P.S. I just added the option to “follow me” – because I post so irregularly it might help you to know what I actually write.
