Happy Valentine’s Day

Today started out good. I got up on time! I was in a relatively good mood despite being single on Valentine’s Day. The good mood lasted until about 10 am when I got a call from my brother, who informed me that Dad was going by ambulance to the emergency room.


He was feeling drunk and for him, that is a sign that he might be having another stroke. I could not leave work so instead I sat there worrying. He was just sent home and he did not have a stroke.

I had to leave work early for an ob/gyn appointment. Fun times on Valentine’s Day. First disappointment, I was weighed. It was 10 pounds over my previous weigh int. While I was waiting, all this pent up worry was released over the scale. I was trying hard not to cry. I wish there was an opt out of weighing in at the doctor’s office.

My doctor told me that I should not have kids. At 37, while I would like kid, I am beginning to think it is not in the cards for me. That just made me incredibly sad. I love kids. I want kids. Another sad thing.

Then the doctor said that since I am at high risk for endometrial cancer, which given my history, is true. So he said he wanted to do a biopsy and if it was ok to do it today. It was but I was not prepared for the pain I would be in. It hurt and still does. 

I had wanted to go to the gym after the appointment but I was in a lot of pain, so I just went home and watched My Life Is A Zoo.


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your horrible day. That's a lot to deal with for one stinking day.

  2. I'm so sorry your day was awful, but I'm glad your dad is ok! Also, I hope this isn't offensive or out of line (and if it is, I am sincerely sorry), but had you ever considered adopting a child? I'd love to, but my husband isn't on board with the idea :(

  3. I just browse through your blog since I am looking for blogs that would inspire me to loose weight. I read your post today and sorry that you have a bad day.. I know you will get through everything.

    I will look forward to your other post and hopefully they will have good news.

  4. Sorry you had such a bad day Jenn. I hope today gets better for you.
    One a positive note, I was told i wouldn't have kids for the same reason/risks...but after seeing a different doctor and a year on med's I had 4 healthy kids. I did have to have them all very close together (my oldest was 4 when my baby was born) but we wouldn't change a thing!
    God is a miracle worker so don't give up just yet!☺

  5. I am so sorry you had such a yucky day. I am really glad your dad is okay.


  6. Sorry to hear you had such a crappy day. I'm glad your Dad was ok though. That's a lot of junk to be going through.


I love your comments!
