Hollywood, CA

I've been in L.A. since Saturday for a business trip. Sunny California is quite a difference from cold and snowy Chicago! It's been 96 degrees here. I was lucky enough to bring my husband with me. So, in between business meetings, we've been trying to soak up as much of L.A. as possible. It was so nice to take a break from my reality and experience something different. Putting my feet in the Pacific was a wonderful way to relax.

Of course, I brought my Lupron 24 hour migraine with me for the first day. Good times! Maybe that's why my smile is a bit wonky in this photo.

So, it's back to reality this afternoon. I have my ultrasound and blood test tomorrow at 7a.m. to determine if I'm supressed. That should be fun after getting home at 9:30 p.m. and adjusting to Chicago time.


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! And welcome to the IF blogosphere. :)

    Lots of luck with your u/s and blood test. If there is one thing that damned Lupron is good for, it's suppression. Isn't that the most evil med ever?!?!

  2. I guess that's a good way for me to think of it. I'm miserable on Lupron but at least I'm not in Sou CA and on Lupron. I can't imagine the heat there would improve this experience.

  3. "There I'm smiling just take the dang picture already!"

  4. Yes, we are baking hot here in CA! Sounds like you had a good trip; I'm glad. Good luck with the appointment tomorrow, I'll be looking forward to your update!

  5. Glad that you are so soaking up LA! Hey, Lupron the 0-0 witch! Oh! All the very best for the upcoming cycle and I did not think you looked wonky at all in the photos...


  6. You are smiling bravely for the camera in the photo! Good for you! Glad you are making the best of it, although 96 degrees has got to be brutal for someone from Chicago.

    Good luck on your suppression!


  7. Good luck with your appt!


  8. Happy ICLW! I hope you enjoy the rest of your time in CA.
