Still processing...

I went to see a new PCP today and he had the results from my followup ultrasound yesterday. I have to have an MRI on Friday because they found an 8cm mass in my pelvic region. It is on the left side and all my pain has been on the right side so there still is a question of whether or not this will be cause of my pain but since it is pretty much 24/7 these days... The odd thing is that my ob/gyn wrote the orders for an MRI and for the nurse to notify me last night. I didn't hear anything from them today so the new dr ended up writing the order for the MRI so that I could get in this week. Obviously now I have to have the lap to have the mass removed and to see what else might be going on. I just don't get where this came from as I had an ultrasound 7 weeks ago.

Nervous doesn't really cut it right now...

Shouldn't be surprised...

I only made it 9 days with the Nuvaring before my blood pressure numbers were higher than we all would like. They weren't super scarey but I was averaging about 135/99 and that is over 20 pts higher on both sides than it was prior to using the ring. Plus my pulse went up over 15 points on average with several readings over 100 BPM. I have been off of it since Tuesday afternoon and I am still getting higher readings than I would like but hopefully it will calm down soon. I still need to find a new PCP and if it doesn't go down soon then I will have to find one sooner rather than later.

I have done well on 2011 goals with making new recipes and eating at home an average of 5 nights per week. I only missed last week with the new recipe goal but I think I made two new recipes one week so it balances out. I'm sure that at some point I will make more than one recipe in a week again so it's all good.

Work is super slow right now but hopefully it will pick up after the Superbowl. I have two orders that I have to wait until next week to inspect simply because the people aren't ready right now. I don't want to go to my appointment tomorrow because there isn't enough data. Blech. Oh well.

Better get back up off the couch and either use the Zumba for Wii game or get some more cleaning done.

Have an awesome weekend.
