My Journey: 02

Hello and thanks to everyone that read, or commented on my last entry. Since I am home today from work, I decided to give you guys a quick update on things.

Well I got the Lupron shot on the 27th. In order to get the shot, I had to be on my period, which came down on 9/25. I have been on my period ever since. It sucks! It would get light, and heavy, and medium, then heavy again. And when I would think it was going away on the extemely light days, it would come back. I went to the ER this past Saturday night, because my heart had been beating pretty fast that day, and I felt shaky, and my nerves felt shot. Not just that but, I was coagulating a lot and it worried me. Come to find out I had high blood pressure. Luckily my blood count was okay, which meant that I wasn't losing too much blood, and my cervix looked fine. I have an appointment with my GYN today, and I don't know what will be discussed, but I guess it's good to keep her updated and stuff. Whether I'll be getting the second shot today, I don't know, but we'll see.

A big side effect to this, are my mood swings, and my hot flashes. Which suck in the middle of the night. Poor Joe and Rocky, I tend to freeze them a little lol. Again, my loved ones are being awesome about everything. Everyone is sort of going through different things (Like my parents having to give up the family dog, Ossy, yesterday : ( ), which means that we are all constantly calling each other to see how the other is doing. My family is like that, one is going through something, we all feel it.

I just wanted to get this update out of the way, in order to post about other more light hearted and superficial things haha. That was me being very sarcastical yet honest?

I hope each and every one of you are doing great, if not... Then remember, it will pass.
* con mucho amor, c i n d y.
