I swore life would become "normal" once school started & I would be more active in here. But life has kept that from happening. I can't remember if I mentioned this or not but my dad has a lump on his head, we were originally told that it was just a cyst & said remove it (the dr barely looked at it) & luckily he had another appt with another dr who said, "uhhh, lets check this out before we remove it". It turned out to be cancer (stage 4 Metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma). Now they said that they found it was from his old liver (he had a liver transplant May 2010, his old liver was full of cancer). they seem optimistic that it can be removed easily with radiation.

I have been in & out of depression from our last loss which was in Feb. And I think that has kept me from being active here as well. It's like being on here was just a reminder & made me sulk more. I have done some classroom help for Valerie's class the past couple of weeks & just getting out of the house for 1 1/2 hrs each day has really helped me get back on my feet & feel good again.

In the meantime, we have been taking clomid & pressing on with TTC again. This cycle we decided to do the IUI again, which we had done on Wed. This is the 1st cycle we have tried the IUI since our last loss(we worried that the IUI may have caused the loss). The last loss was our 1st ever attempt with IUI & I had the heterotopic pregnancy & lost both babies. I can't believe it's been almost a year since we did the IUI. I have been taking the B-Fruitful herbs(you can read more about them in my blog, the link is in my siggy) as well as added Red Raspberry Leaves to my daily vitamins (I read an article that they help with your uterus. We still do not know why I keep miscarrying now & really the dr hasn't said we are going to do anything different when I do become pregnant. So, I am really freaking out about what is going to happen if I do become pregnant. I have a stash of Carry On, which is supposed to prevent miscarriage. I will begin taking that when I get a BFP & pray it works for me.

So, that's my update in a nutshell.

Thank you! They did a full body scan & said that is the only cancer in his body. So, we only have to focus on that. What a relief.

I'm hoping things start to look up for you. I'm sorry about your dad, but I'm relieved that they say it's just in that one spot.
