Time’s Up

January 4, 2010 Sarah Coggins

I’ve been a little out of it the last week or so. My thoughts have been monopolized by this:

No, not another baby. 😉 That’s a photo from our first ultrasound with Dylan in Dec 2008. The pink arrow is pointing to the other “thing” the doctor found that day – an endometrial cyst approximately 4″ in diameter.

I was diagnosed with endometriosis in 1996 and thanks to rigorous treatment, had little pain in the last few years. Honestly, I’d pretty much moved on and thought little of it especially once I became pregnant. It now appears that it did anything but move on – instead it created this mess whose time officially expires today. I’m dreading the surgery, but glad to finally be putting this behind me. And very thankful for a supportive family to help care for me and Dylan during my recovery.
