Feeling a Little Optimistic Tonight

18 Mar

I went to my routine 3-month check-up with the oncologist today.  I love my doctor.  I’m so glad God blessed me with him.  He always walks in, looks at Kevan & me and says, “It is my favorite couple!”  I’m sure he says that to everyone, but it still makes us feel good.  If Kevan isn’t with me for some reason he always jokes that he lost his “husband-of-the-year status”.  My mother-in-law also goes to him for her post-cancer check-ups and she says he talks more about us than he does about her.  Haha!  Anyway, my blood work came back well.  Tumor markers are good and no indication that cancer has returned.  Praising the Lord for another appointment with great news.

We discussed menopause and he ordered some blood work to see how my levels are now.  I may not know for a few days.  We also talked about my thyroid a little and if the menopause could be caused by my thyroid levels (although they are perfect right now and are normally low) or my thyroid medication (it was changed a couple months ago).  He referred us to a fertility specialist (who happens to be the ex-wife of the doctor that did my mastectomy).  He’s referred several of his cancer survivor patients and they’ve had successful pregnancies.  He even said that they were 1 or 2 babies and not 5 or 6.  lol!  We are going to see if we can “retrieve” some of my own eggs (if there are any left in there) and see what our options are.  Kevan still has a lot of hope and thinks God is going to do a miracle and the crazy menopause lady (me) is going to have a baby.  I keep telling him to keep his hope to himself so that I don’t get disappointed again.  I know it sounds negative, but it will be too hard if I hope too much.  I am a little optimistic….but am trying to shove it far far down.

Thanks all for now…..good night!

    Jayde, DO NOT push your hope far, far down. Hope deferred makes the heart sick, according to the Word. Stand on that. Love you!!!
