Basal scan and Flying Ban

I had my basal scan this morning, everything looked great. I had my favourite Doctor doing the scan so I told her about the hysteroscopy and the darn spotting for the full duration of the pill!! (I'm spotting free since yesterday though, please join me in the happy dance!) She also said it was normal and she was very sorry to hear about the scarring but that it's gone now and that Dr. B is a great doctor. So I'm starting my other drugs this evening but listen to this....NO VIAGRA!! I know I know, how disappointing!! But she said that if I had scarring tissue it could have been the cause for the slow thickening of the endometrium and that I may not need it at all. Next scan is next Monday so we'll see then. I wonder if I can return the Viagra and get a refund...

On other news, do you remember my parents flew over last Wednesday to a few days with us? Well...they arrived just before the Volcano erupted in Iceland and they are now stranded here until they lift the flight ban on Irish skies. They should have gone back today but we knew on Saturday the company had grounded all flights until lunch time today (including theirs) and yesterday they extended the ban until at least next Wednesday. So, a part from the company, we have gained a permanent maid who cooks, cleans and irons! and I became a lady of leisure...

Kitten are doing well, I'm still obsessed that Patches isn't eating much but he gained 100g in the last week and seems to be quite playful. The Dude is great as usual, really sweet and big. My parents adore them.

And the last piece of news is that Mike bought a new car on Saturday! It's his first brand new car so it's all very exciting and we can't wait until it arrives in a few weeks.


  1. Yay for a great scan and no Viagra - the less synthetic crap you have to put in your body, the better! :-) Glad to hear kitties are well and you're surrounded by loving family. And congrats on the new car!

  2. oh I'm happy dancin with you girl. such a great update, all sounds so good and do post pics of the car when you get it, how exciting! xoxoxo

  3. Everything is sounding great! Are you getting covered in ash because if so that new maid is going to be perfect. :-)

  4. Happy dance taking place for the end of your spotting as we speak!!!! how nice to get a surprise extended stay from you mom & dad...enjoy being a lady of leisure.

  5. Glad to hear all went well with the scan - fingers crossed for you sweetie. Enjoy the extra time with your parents. xx

  6. I'm so glad your scan went well (and especially glad that the spotting is's always soothing to be told that it's normal but I know that it doesn't ever feel "right" somehow). Interesting about what they said about the scar tissue - makes complete sense.

    (Your poor parents! Though I bet it's nice to have them for a little longer. Watching the air chaos, it's just unbelievable. I'm in NYC and just passed several airline offices with lines of dozens of people waiting, hoping to get going.)

    And I'm so glad Patches is on the mend. Here's hoping for a really brilliant May, where everything falls into perfect place.

  7. Wishing you the best of bestest for this cycle! Hope you have a great time with your parents extended stay! :)

  8. Glad to hear Patches is doing better and that things are going well for you. Also glad that you are getting some unexpected time with you parents. It is always nice to have our mom's taking care of us! Best wishes!

  9. It sounds like things are looking promising on the IF front. Bummer about the viagra. At least you know you won't have to go to the ER if you get an... er... well, you know, lasting more than 4 hours. ;)

    I will keep praying for Patches. Poor little mow. :( At least he is doing a little better.

    And you know, I WOULD feel bad your parents are stuck there, but it sounds like it isn't such a bad thing. At least they were staying with you and not in a hotel while on vacation!

    Hooray for Mike and his new car! That is always exciting. Perhaps you can all go for a drive while your parents are stuck there. ;)

  10. Fran, I love reading your posts and hearing all about what is going on with you. I'm thrilled you had a good scan with your favorite doctor. Every day my fingers are crossed for you.

    I just know your love and devotion to Patches will pull him through. And I was wondering if you had been affected by the Iceland volcano. It sounds like you're pleased to have your parents stranded with you. Lovely to be a lady of leisure!

  11. Glad to hear the appt went well. I hope you are enjoying the time with your parents. How does it feel to be a lady of leisure??!!

    Sounds like your parents are loving their furgrandbabies!

  12. I'm glad your parents are with you and not stuck on holiday paying for a hotel. Plus, someone to cook and clean? Bonus!

    You are on your way, missy. I'm looking forward to May for you and I'm thrilled that your kitties are back to normal.

    I love new cars! I bought my first brand new car 4 years ago and I have to say, that it's nice to be a grown up. Congratulations!

  13. I stumbled upon your blog today as part of the IComLeavWe month and I am so intrigued to know about the Viagra!! I need to read back on your posts.. and I will keep reading as you go through your cycle! Good luck!!!

  14. Sounds like everything is going well. Yay for a new car! Enjoy the visit with your parents.
