4 days of Lupron

So far so good. Slight headache and some cramping last night. I was able to sleep with a little help from my good friend Advil PM. I sure hope things continue on this path while I am on this med.

These two are what make me smile many times a day. They are the sweetest, silliest, funniest parts of my life. They are worth every minute of work I have to do. When you look at their silly faces, how can you NOT smile?

What makes you SMILE?

I got these questions here Enjoy!

1. How’s your tolerance for alcohol? It depends on what I am drinking.
2. How’s your tolerance for noisy neighbors? Shoot em. Ok not really, they cut my grass.
3. How’s your tolerance for physical pain? You want to ask me this now? I have been in pain since the end of June. I would say I am almost used to it now.
4. How’s your tolerance for intolerant people? I hate intolerant people. Really I just hate everyone equally.
5. How’s your tolerance for bad music? If I don't like it, I will just change the station or sing over it. Gotta love the booby song.

The City of Wyoming is having a hot air balloon launch tomorrow in celebration of its 50th Anniversary. I think I am going to have to take the boys. In addition there will be concessions set up for food and drinks. Now let's just hope the weather cooperates. I am so over this fall like weather. I want it hot and I want it now!

These were my favorite ones but you can see more here! Some will make you giggle, while others will make you scratch your head and think what the eff?


Tomorrow will mark my one year wedding anniversary. My husband and I got married after dating for 10 years. I did not expect much to change since we had lived together (oh the sin) for so long but in reality we have grown closer to each other. I am so excited for our date tomorrow night, we are going back to Outback Steakhouse, which is where we ate on our wedding night.

Day 3 of Lupron

Here we are, my third day of Lupron. My headache is not nearly as severe as yesterday but now I am battling insomnia. On a good note, I am not tired today. Rather I feel like I could run in a marathon. The pain was pretty intense in my lower back last night, which I remedied with some good ole Vicodin aka my best friend. Not too many complaints besides that.

Holy Hot flash!

Well I guess the dreaded Lupron hot flashes have begun. Aside from a mild headache and feeling a little groggy from last nights sleeping pill, I feel fine. I have had two hot flashes, pretty close together and it was bearable. Annoying, but bearable. I will have to remember when I go out to layer my tops so that if one comes on I can just remove my top layer. Thankfully we are having a cool "summer" day here in Michigan. Perhaps cleaning the boys rooms brought it on, perhaps I should refrain from cleaning. It must be a sign that my body does not like to clean. How I wish.

Lupron.... day 1

Today was my first shot of Lupron. After spending the past 10 days reading every horror story on the net, I went through with it. I got a one month injection and if I can tolerate it I will receive another next month, and continuously for 3 to 6 months, depending on my response. So far my only side effect is a nagging headache that will not go away. I bought some Advil PM this evening because I need sleep. I was up most of last night trying to decide if I was going to do the shot or opt for a hysterectomy. I am hoping to use my blog now to help me through the next few weeks and to keep track of my Lupron experience, whatever it may be.

What a summer

This summer has been pretty rough for me health wise. In June I went to Ohio to see my family and while I was there I happened to gain some weight.... for no reason. When I got home I was very bloated and started to have pains near my right ovary. After an ultrasound it was found that I had a 6 cm cyst on my right ovary. Surgery was scheduled and all went well. I had a cyst removed from my right ovary, an adhesion removed from my left, some endometriosis removed, and a whole slew of other things as well. SO fast forward a month and once again the pain begins. At first I was blown off by the OB/GYN that performed my surgery so I went to the OB who treated me while I was pregnant. So the decision came to be that I would try Lupron to shut down my ovaries and put me into a menopause like state. Today was my first shot. I was so scared to take it! I am hoping it works and I can finally feel better. I am so glad that all these problems started after I had my children.
