On to the next chapter

I finally got to talk to the doc this afternoon before seeing our movie. [digression]Mission Impossible 3 is totally a guy's shoot-um-up movie but if you have to sit through it, it actually wasn't too bad; I've seen much worse[end digression]. He said the surgery went great and he was able to repair the septum with no problems. He said I now have 50% more space in my uterus and, given that I've had one child, he doesn't see any reason why I can't have another. I asked about the cyst and he said it was no big deal; just something hanging off my left tube that might have potentially compressed it but is no longer a factor since he removed it. I asked him about the bloodwork and he said to just call on CD1 and that would put in motion everything that is routinely tested.

For some reason I feel like the phone conversation closed a chapter in my life. I truly felt like it closed the chapter on miscarriages and loss. Like those things are gone from my life forever. Trying to be optimistic? Maybe it's just the second glass of wine kicking in. At any rate I feel like I've got my second wind and I'm ready to move forward and brave whatever the future holds.

This blog may be a little boring in the near future. FF forecasts me to start the next cycle on the 18th of June. In the meantime I'm looking forward to getting back into my old routine and catching up on my scrapbooking. I'll let you know as soon as anything interesting happens. Thanks for everyone's comments and encouragement through all this. It's hard to believe that a community of women that one has never met can be such a vital lifeline but I can attest to the fact that it's true!
