I have a duck in my pond

I had a 7:45 appointment with Jaffe this morning. I fell asleep twice in the exam room before she came in about one hour later (all of you ladies can feel my pain---I was undressed from the waist down and it was freezing cold in the exam room- the only thing I had to cover with was the paper drape across my lap.) Once the exam started I saw the usual- fluid filled tube-my ovary-and then all of a sudden out of no where comes this HUGE cyst with a blob in it. Cysts are normal for me but this one had a life of its own and it had a visitor. Jaffe's exact words were "oh my gosh!!!!!!", not good, not good at all when the doctor has a probe inside of you and is saying "oh my gosh!!!!!!". She said " Oh it looks like you have a duck swimming in your pond", WHAT?? What pond? What duck? What is she talking about????????? She was talking about a Hemorrhagic Cyst. Hemorrhagic cysts occur when a blood vessel in the wall of a cyst breaks, causing blood to enter into the cyst. The nurse asked me if I was in a lot of pain. Thankfully I am not in any more pain than what is normal. So no IVF for us this month, we are obviously not ready. She has put me back on the birth control pills so hopefully no more cysts will grow. I am not sure if it is suppose to try and shrink this "pond" (my cyst with the duck) or not. I will have another scan in 2 to 3 weeks. So, please keep us in your prayers and ask God to take away the pond and the duck!!!!!

Carie, I was thinking and praying for you guys this morning. I hope everything goes well and this can go away. I love you guys.

Those exams always make my stomach hurt. I always take a pair of socks to help me not feel so naked!


I will add you to my prayer list. I love the picture of you and your hubbie. I know God has something special for you two.
