Nothing to tell.

Nothing going on really.

My goal for my workday is to get stuff cleaned up while the kids are working on all the "lasts".

No definite news on B-dog yet. They sent the tests out, so we will know more later today. It is probably the lymphoma, though, so now we need to make a decision about the level of treatment. I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around some of this. We will probably not do the full chemo treatment again, because it is unlikely to give us another six months so the cost will not be worthwhile. At the same time, we have the money to be able to do it so part of me is having a hard time accepting that we are not going to do it.

I'm feeling okay today. Just tired, but I stayed up an hour later than usual because I am attempting a new knitting project. I hope I am not tempting fate, because I am trying to knit a baby sweater. It's not for any specific purpose (ie: my future child) but because it is an easy beginner's pattern and a baby's sweater is smaller than an adult one, so it will progress more quickly.

The last thing I was contemplating is the sex/no sex rule after transfer. It sounds like different docs say different things, which is interesting. Some say no sex or org.asm until 1st u/s with heartbeat. Mine says it's okay 48 hours after transfer. (I looked it up on my "after transfer" instructions.) I found a study that says that people who have sex right before or right after transfer have a higher incidence of pregnancy- something about the introduction to semen. So many different opinions... shows us that so much in medicine is still arbitrary and/or uncertain.

Not that I'm having sex anytime soon. There's too much nasty stuff resulting from my 3x a day suppositories. Poor III.

((HUGS)) I had sex during one of my 2ww and I always regretted it after my m/c.

You are almost there!
