Strange things, these artificial cycles. My last period was the first week of April, 4/6 I think (I would have to check my phone to be sure, because, well, there's an app for that). That period started only because I stopped taking the Estrace and Endometrin. This period was quite late, but it wasn't the first time that my body called a time out after cycling. I decided that I wasn't going to stress about it and just let things happen as they will.
I had my blood work and ultrasound today (and, for what seems like the tenth time, I needed to prove to the FDA that I do not have HIV). When the results came in, the nurse said that everything appeared as though I am really in mid-cycle (lining was thicker than it should have been at CD3, ovaries looked like they were in mid-cycle, and my numbers were high on the blood work). On the other hand, my period is definitely acting "normal."
My doctor is at a conference, so they are going to let him decide what to do. Options are to come back in a few days and look again, or to wait for another cycle.
I am not stressing about it. If there is a pot of gold at the end of this rainbow, then it will be worth the wait. If there isn't, don't you think it's better to live in a state of possibility as opposed to being at the end of the road? I can see pluses and minuses in both.
Our weather is supposed to be fantastic during this long weekend, and I'm looking forward to it. We have a small Memorial Day parade in our neighborhood. There are service members of all stripes, and usually a horse and carriage with a woman dressed widow's weeds of a bygone era, presumably symbolizing all the widows who've lost a loved one. Many people follow the parade to an old cemetery, and then they have a short service. People who have served in the military are called up, and they receive a medal recognizing their service. Very nice.
I won't be able to walk this time, because I just found out that I have plantar fascitis (sp?) (with a bonus foot sprain!). Such a joy. But, I do want my father to come to the ceremony. He was in the Army (Korea), and they received so little recognition. Perhaps we can drive there ahead of the parade, and I'll get a chance to cheer for him.Hope that you have a wonderful holiday.
