Couple of Updates...

My friend, Becky: She is in a deep coma. There is slow brain activity but there IS brain activity. I can't wait until she wakes up and sees how every one made a fuss over her. She is still on a vent and she has not had any deterioration from yesterday. The neurologist said we will have to wait and see. I am heading to Kansas tomorrow morning to help out with our Bike MS event this weekend. With Becky not being able to work it and Erin being there all by herself to man the entire event, well, I was able to ask to go help Erin. Brooke will be leading my Bike MS event in Arkansas (thank you, Brooke!) and I will be in Kansas until Monday.

I will get to see Becky sometime this weekend. My plan is to talk her head off and sing "this is the song that never ends" until she wakes up. LOL...maybe read some Twilight to her. Just aggravate her until she says STOP! Becky has a long way to go; however, there is HOPE and that is what we need right now! Keep praying for a full and speedy recovery!!!

I also went to the doctor today for a follow up appointment. It was two hours...sigh. I had a qHCG to see where my hormone level is but I haven't gotten the results back yet. They need to be under 5 he said so I can start my period. That is the next step. I should start any time from 4-8 weeks. As soon as I do, I will start estrogen patches. They want to suppress my ovaries so I will not ovulate. After two weeks of patches they will check me and hopefully my uterus will be ready for the frozen embryo transfer or FET. I will start progesterone. At first he said 11-12 weeks of DAILY progesterone shots...after my face went WHITE and I threw up a little in my mouth, he said there was another progesterone treatment called, Endometrim (sp). It is a three times a day vaginal insert for 12 weeks. It is expensive if insurance doesn't cover...about $10/day...$1200. However, my insurance covers...so $50 copay :-) God is good.

Anyway, I have a busy weekend ahead and need a ton of strength...say a prayer that Becky continues to get better and I stay strong through this emotional time...
