He Makes Me Laugh

It’s been a bit of a rough week.  On Wednesday I had a doctor’s appointment to schedule my surgery.  For those of you that don’t know, I have a pesky uterine fibroid and need to have it removed.  I had an ultersound in conjunction with the appointment and they found a cyst on one of my ovaries.  Sheesh!  Can’t a girl catch a break.  My OB is awesome and was very frank about the whole situation.  Surgery is likely to go very well, but there is the chance that they may have to remove more than expected — ie: a hystrecotmy.  

 As you can imagine, I’ve had quite a few emotions running around in my mind.   I understand that I am a 35 year old woman, and the longer I wait to get pregnant, the harder it will be.  The truth is,  I’m just not ready to be a mommy.  I have every confidence that Chuck and I will be fantastic parents — we just might not be biological ones.  Mom gave me some good advice — take each day as it comes.  (Too bad she doesn’t follow her own advice.)  🙂

While we were waiting in the room for the doctor to come back with some notes, Chuck and I had a conversation about my docs.  He too really likes my OB.  The conversation went something like this:

Chuck:  I really like Dr. Adams.  She knows her stuff.

Nicole:  Do you like her better than my internist?

Chuck:  The New-Agey one?

Nicole:  She’s not New-Agey, but yes.

Chuck:  She’s New-Agey.  If she found out you were having surgery, she would probably say all you need is some shark skin on your abdomen and those fibroids would be gone in no time.

Nicole: Shark skin?

Chuck:  Sure.  And then she’d sacrifice a chicken and use the blood to outline your body.  Yeah I like Dr. Adams better than the other one.

He really knew how to lighten the mood.  I laughed my butt off.  Incidentally, my internist is *not* New-Agey regardless of what Chucklebutt says — although I am running low on shark skin so I may need my doc to refill my prescription. 😉

I snagged the following video from Hop Hop Jingle Boo’s blog.  It reminds me of Chuck and me.  Thanks baby for keeping me laughing!

    Hey Gal-
    You are both in my prayers! You kick ass and will come through whatever the surgery uncovers. Love and BIG hugs to you both.


    PS: I’m 36… my baby clock is a-tickin’ faster than yours!
