I spent the better part of last night writhing in pain and I didn't get to church this morning because I could hardly get out of bed. My endo has gotten to where not only do I get cramps when AF makes her monthly visit, but I also get them with ovulation. I have to say, this is a new kind of pain. The severity is about the same of the ones that accompany my monthly "gift", but these are just..different.
I guess maybe it comes from the endo that encompasses my ovaries? In December at my surgery, my doctor said that the endometrial tissue was primarily covering my ovaries, unlike in my past surgeries, when it has been mainly concentrated on my ureter, bowel, and surrounding tissues. It's also spreading much, much faster than it was in the past. The bad news about this? Endometrial tissue on the ovaries can lead to infertility. Which just so happens to scare me out of my mind. I want babies. Lots of them. Money tree, anyone? Or magical economy turner-arounder wand? Aaanyway, a little vicodin, and I wasn't feeling quite as kill-me-now but that makes me woozy, so I pretty much did nothing all day.
[Pardon my fresh-out-of-bed/messy hair look...Trav looked down from the loft with the camera and we had to catch one of our rare snuggle moments. They are fleeting these days.]
My amazing husband did laundry, cooked and took care of Jax, though, and without being asked. Seriously, could I have married better? I think not. He did admit that being a stay-at-home/work-at-home dad just isn't his cup of tea! ;)
This afternoon Jax played outside while Trav was Mr. Fix It with outdoorsy stuff...let's hope Jax is impervious to bad luck because he ran under the ladder at least 5 times!
The therapists come tomorrow to see what's going on with Jax. She sounded totally stumped when I told her over the phone what has been going on with him. She said that it doesn't seem to be completely sensory, or he wouldn't want anything to do with grass, sand, etc, which y'all can see, he doesn't mind. She is hoping they have someone on their team who will be able to help us. Cross your fingers!
Tomorrow is also June 14. Do you know what that is??
