This week has totally sucked eggs...and I don't mean the fun, colorful, Easter kind, either.

Erik and I called things off permanently this week. He can't handle my life (meaning Joel) no matter how much he tries to or wants to. Oh well. His timing is atrocious though, as usual. Between my job and my health issues I feel like he's kicking me while I'm already down.

I have some interesting health news. I had my endometrial biopsy yesterday. I've had it done before but it wasn't like this. Today I'm in horrific pain and the bleeding is really bad. I'm also running a fever today and I'm hoping I don't have some kind of infection from the procedure. The dr told me, though, that unless the biopsy shows something really bad, he doesn't think I'll need the hysterectomy. This is because apparently all my labs from last time came back showing post-menopausal levels! He thinks I should try to wait it out and see if the bleeding just stops for good, because from the looks of my hormone levels that should be happening soon. YAYYYYY!!!! I really didn't want to have the surgery, so that's a big load off! Of course, we're not out of the woods completely until we get the results back on the biopsy, but I really think, based on my other symptoms, that this is probably what the problem has been.

My mom freaked out, wanted to know why it would happen to me so young (I'm 39) but I was like...who cares?LOL She was pretty young, too, when she went thru the change. SHe finished at 42.

So that's my life. I need to sleep all weekend...this week has been too much for me. If it weren't for that pesky kid I just might give it a try!LOL

Have a great weekend!

Hey Lauren,

It's good to hear from you.Sorry to hear that you and Erik broke up.((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))I am sorry to hear that you aren't feeling well either.I hope that you get feeling better soon.I hope nothing shows up on the biopsy.Let us know how it turns out.I can't wait till I don't have a period anymore either.Since I cannot have any more kids I don't see a use for me to be having one.But I know I am too young to be going through menopausal.Hopefully you won't need the hysterectomy.And you won't bleed anymore,that would be a huge relief for me too.I hope you get some sleep and that Joel lets you rest some.Mine and hubby's anniversary is Sunday.But we are going to celebrate it later today.My mom is going to keep the kids.Hubby already has some plans made I can't wait to see what they are.I cannot believe that I will be married for 7 years this weekend,LOL.I told hubby that I feel old now since Erika will start school this year,LOL.I hope you have a great weekend.
