After two weeks of being sick, I woke up this morning and finally felt a bit better. I have only worked one full day this year, and have just been down for the count with some nasty virus. I hit rock bottom on Thursday afternoon. I was in so much pain. My throat hurt so badly. I was just miserable. I went back to the doctor, and they told me that I could take much more pain medication than I had been taking. I think that made the difference. I was able to get past the pain and get some sleep which allowed me to finally start feeling better. I can't tell you how good that feels!
I am planning on going to work tomorrow (weird!). I don't even remember what that is like. Today, I need to get myself together. I'm a wreck. My first mission is to get my nails done. They look terrible! So, I am determined to find a place to get a manicure today! I also need to deal with my eyebrows. Ugh! I think I also need to replace some makeup after the illness, so that should be fun. I need to keep myself from doing too much so that I don't relapse.
On the IVF front, I need to call my nurse on Monday and get her to order my medications. I'll start my IVF cycle in February after my (much needed) vacation. I am hopeful that maybe this will be successful. If it is, I could end up with a baby by my husband's 40th birthday in November. I can't imagine a better gift. I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much, but I need to live in the light a little bit in order to have the courage to take this chance again.
