I’m working hard on a post about what not to say and what replacements are more helpful, but it’s a delicate topic and taking more emotional energy than expected, so in the meantime, here’s a little update:
I went to my January blood test on the 23rd and my hCG levels have stayed at zero since they dropped the week before Christmas. This is good news, and means, at least so far, that there is no indication of cancer! Now only 4 more months worth of blood tests. If they stay clear of hCG then we will get the green light to start trying to get pregnant again.
What do you do in the waiting? For better or worse, we decided to buy a condo! We’re so over renting and this will give us lots of distraction from our circumstances with the renovation. We are excited to pick out flooring and redo the kitchen. Don’t mind me channeling my inner HGTV star.
My next objective? Convince Jeff to buy me a puppy! I hear they are very therapeutic..
