Step Two Down, On To Step Three

Well, the HSG procedure is complete. It was not pleasant at all. I was actually shocked at how much it hurt. But as soon as it was over the pain ended. They let Roger stay in the whole time. Dr. K said it's the first time in ten years he has let a husband stay in because he usually doesn't like them to see how much pain their wife is in. But Roger told him I have always been there for all his stuff and he wanted to be here with me. Dr. K told us during the procedure that everything looked good to him. The left fallopian tube was completely open and the right was not as open as the left but it should not hinder conception. So we're on to the next step which is the first day of my next cycle I have to call their office to inform them and they will set up a flow chart then make an appointment for me to come in and get the Clomid instructions and get ready to do the IUI. We will also be working with the cryobank to transport the frozen samples to Dr. K's office on the days of the IUI procedure. All this could happen as early as the end of next week but of course we won't know until it happens as my cycle is still not predictable. But of course we'll update the blog when we know something more definite.

Roger's blood work last week showed his white blood count went back up so he can continue on the clinical trial. We know him working 70+ hours a week for 19 days straight was not good for him. He is working towards getting more rest, eating healthier and taking better care of himself and we'll post about that in a few weeks. But the extreme overtime ended and he was able to get rest and is back to normal. We go to MD Anderson in Houston on Monday and Tuesday next week for his next MRI, echo-cardiogram and labs. We are excited about this next MRI as the last one two months ago showed no new growth. We are eager to hear what this one shows.

So please pray for what both of us are going through all at the same time. We hope and pray for everyone to have an amazing Thanksgiving. Of course, I'm hoping Texas A&M beats the hell out of the University of Texas. But Roger is hoping for the opposite. A house divided, only for four or so hours on Thanksgiving day during the football game. ~ Holly
