Talk about anti-climactic

Well, the good news is that I do not have a kidney infection, nor do I have any of the other potential things that quite honestly, were a bit scary. I did have an ovarian cyst that burst, apparently, which is kind of sucky, but in terms of things I would rather have it be, there's not really that many.

Better news, there weren't any more abnormal cysts on the CT scan, and now that I'm not completely losing my shit, I should really start feeling better. Which, I do. At the very least, I'm much more calm, and that really does help a lot. Things are not perfect, but at the very least I have a diagnosis, and I have a timeline besides "we don't know".

Work... kinda still sucks, but now that I have one less thing to worry about, it's a little easier to take.

Mostly what I've been up to, I guess you could call nesting. I cleaned the blankets for my bed, and I made a wreath for my front door, and I'm cooking and baking again. I'm also starting a container garden on my back porch, which so far includes garlic. Yup, pretty awesome. I'm going to put some tulips in later this week. One of my garlic cloves is already sprouting (which I am told they tend to do and is totally okay), so that is exciting, because my green thumb, not usually so green.

Other than that, I am waiting on ski season. Oh, and feeling obligated (by no one but myself) to spend Thanksgiving with Jay's family. This puts a slight kink in my plans to go skiing on Thanksgiving again. Skiing just might win out, familial relations be damned.

Very glad it's not something more serious. Ick on the ovarian cyst rupture; was that the problem all along?

And yes, the weather change causes me to go into High Nesting Mode too. Heh.

Skiing, eh? I like watching other people doing it while sipping hot chocolate; preferably while sitting in a nice hot jacuzzi. hehehe

But enjoy! You young whippersnappers with your skiing and such. ;-P

Oy jebus!!! My coworker had ovarian cysts that got so bad they had to remov her ovaries. One ruptured and caused her to bleed so heavily she passed out. The other ruptured just as she was on the operating table to have everything removed. I'm glad they have found the course of your troubles and you know how to attack it should anything like this ever happen again. And after all this shit you've been through, you should go skiing instead!

I had a huge ovarian cyst way back before I got married. The ob/gyn I saw then insisted that it had to be removed immediately (it was causing me a lot of pain) and couldn't wait until after my wedding. Allan said he wanted a second opinion and when we went to the doctor who wound up being my ob/gyn for 25 years, he said that we should wait and see. And three months later it had disappeared. From the size of a grapefruit to gone and it never returned, so that's what I hoping for you, too! Our bodies do some weird things.

I'll be sitting in front of a roaring fire with my hot chocolate chatting with Amber while you shuss(?) down the slopes. Don't let the cold air in when you open the door. :)

Thanks, you guys. I'm glad it wasn't anything more serious either.

And I am so going skiing as soon as we get any snow. With luck, the day after Thanksgiving will be my first day on the slopes again :)

Y'all enjoy your hot chocolate; I'll try not to track too much snow in the house ;)
