Kitty Recovered!

2 Apr

In a miraculous series of events our cat is fighting cancer back again.  He’s regained his strength and even gained a pound in only a week.  We’ve gone from night and day with him and I am SO grateful to see him back his happy self.  He is even eating on his own, which is a relief after watching him almost starve himself down to a bony little guy.  I know it is just a matter of time before we have to revisit the grim reaper again with him as time ticks away, but I am grateful that I can finally rest mentally.  For now, we can just rest and be happy to have him one more day.

After my rather painful experience with the Repeat Loss Expert overloading my brain with pregnancy loss research facts (or lack thereof) I am feeling some optimism again.   She basically confirmed that we’ve turned over all the stones and the only ones left are not proven to have any benefit.  On her advice we’ve gone back and repeated some tests for me.  It sounded overwhelming at the time, but it came down to me just making one more trip to the lab for another poke.  Wow, those guys basically know me there now.  I have a few favorites there and I am starting to go when I know they are scheduled.  I used to dread blood tests and I’ve even fainted on occasion.  Now, I am so used to them that I’ve definitely become less of a wuss when I have to do it.

Mr. Starfish is also getting the level 2 sperm analysis to see if there is any more we can learn about his raw materials.  Finally a test that isn’t just for me!  There is undoubtedly an awkwardness around that one, but he’s a good sport.

The last thing is the hysteroscopy she suggested.  I was dreading this as it would require me to wait even longer to TTC.  Fortunately, my RE thinks that when my cycle starts up, it will naturally cleanse out anything and then the hysteroscopy will no longer be necessary.  Yeah!  Good news!  One less procedure!

Fingers crossed my cycle starts soon!  I am REALLY antsy to get back on the wagon.  I feel like I’ve been sitting on the bench for way too long stewing in my last loss.  That first Green light to TTC again really helps me mentally move forward.

At the same time we have our appt. with the adoption consultant in May.  Very mixed about it, but my hope is that with more knowledge I’ll have less fear about it and be able to form a more confident and informed opinion about if it is a way for us to go.  Mr. Starfish is even less on board, but willing to listen at least.  Now that we have scheduled it we are at least starting to have this important conversation.

    This is the best news. and must be such huge weight off your shoulders. Crazy enough, I sent you a card after I read your first post about Mr Kitty, but it was returned to me. Even the postal service knew that it wasn’t time to say goodbye!

    My mom and I are headed back to the spa next Sunday and we’d love to have you join us.

      Even though I didn’t received it, thank you so much for the card. You are incredibly thoughtful! Your kind thoughts mean so much. Thank you for the spa invitation. It would be great to see you and your mom again. This Sunday I am busy, but I would be up for joining you another time.

    Yes! I’m so happy to hear about Mr. Kitty. That is such good news.

    And it really sounds like your head is in a great place…and awesome that the mister is getting checked. How in the world did you convince him? I have a feeling I’ll have to do that with Tim, but I’m putting it off.
