Grouchy Evening

Just sitting here in bed, slightly depressed, watching "Seinfeld," eating my Cherry Garcia ice cream...fending off all the animals attempting to eat my Cherry Garcia ice cream.

A friend of mine, who suffers from endo as well, has had all the HSGs, endo biopsies and laparoscopies done in the past two months. She is a very research oriented person, and a useful source of fertility information. She wrote me today with some statistics that are scaring the crap out of me. Every month, the normal woman has a 25% chance of getting pregnant, doing all the neccesary steps. An endo woman, apparently, has a 2% chance. 2 freaking percent.

So I am sitting here mulling and grouching about that. 2 freaking percent.

I went back to see Dr. B today. I have a slightly rarer form of the mitral valve prolapse. I've got some sort of weird click, too. He wants me to take beta blockers and aspirin everyday. So that's a bit of a relief to get that diagnosed.

...2 freaking percent.
