Lining is Good!

My lining grew in the last few days up to 9mm!! The Favourite Doctor was very very pleased, even the lower wall is now fluffy!! She could see where the scarring had been removed also and she was very optimistic for us. The Viagra worked its (many) miracles! So transfer is confirmed for Friday at 4pm. I'm very happy but trying not to give in to the anxiety of the embryo thawing. Glad my dream was wrong!
I mentioned to the Fav Doc that we are looking into adoption also and she was a bit taken aback, her opinion is that our embryos are excellent, just didn't have the right place to nest and that worse case scenario we should look into surrogacy... Interesting she mentioned it, after a brief period in which I considered it too I kind of left the idea to one side. She said it's not possible in Ireland but that they could help us coordinate it in a foreign Country. Good to know I suppose!

I have to keep up the Viagra until the day of transfer and then stop it. I am to stop right now the Trental (another vasodilator) because I told her I feel quite dizzy on it, and we have the lining now anyway so it has done its job. I'm keeping up everything else including the extra vitamins which basically, it's the only thing I don't mind taking in a frozen cycle!

This morning I weighed Patches because I still think he's eating very little and using the litter tray also very little. He hasn't grown at all! Still only 1.8 kg (not even 4 lb). He has not lost either which is a relief, but I'm not sure this can be it's final weight. He's a microscopic cat for being 6 months old. He is alert and playful, breathes normally, just doesn't eat much and I realise I'm becoming obsessed with this. Anyway, Mike called the Ultimate Vet Hero to have an opinion (and to stop me from stressing him out!). She is not concerned once he's well, it could be the meds he's on (the antibiotic mostly, rather than the steroids which should make him eating/drinking more). Right so, I'll try not to worry and we'll bring him in as scheduled on Friday for his check-up.

Last bit of news is that yesterday I bought a new MP3 player! Remember all the problems I had with the New Toy ? Well, a part from extending the warranty on it until 2012, I also got a voucher for 100 € to spend on something I liked. I'm not much of a music person (I couldn't sing to save my life and I don't know songs/singers/styles etc...) but sure I had a very old Ipod mini which was obsolete so I decided to try out something different! Going to set it up now!

  5. That's wonderful news! Yes for fluffy lining! I'm thinking of a nice featherbed, and of your penguin snuggling in for the duration. I'm so glad that things are looking good.

    Interesting what your doctor says about adoption - it truly sounds like she is convinced you will get there. And I am hoping that first step to getting there is Friday:)

  11. Fran that's wonderful news. I'm certain that rocky patch was keeping you from sticking properly. Penguini! I'm excited for you and crossing fingers and toes. Seriously wonderful!

    I'm sure Patches is just taking a bit of time to recover. From what I understand, it's natural for animals (and humans although we don't do it so often) to not eat so much when we are ill. Metabolism takes up quite a bit of energy. So if you don't eat so much, you actually conserve energy to help fight off sickness, or repair cells. I'm sure he's just really on the mend and will be a fat cat soon enough. It's great news that he's recovering.

  12. Fran, that is great news about your lining. Hope the transfer on Fri goes well.

    As for Patches maybe he is just small for his breed? Our neighbor has a tabby called Peaches and she is tiny. She is about 4 or 5 years old and can't weigh more than 6 pounds. Glad he is doing better.

  13. Fabulous news on the lining!!! YAY!!! Thoughts and prayers will be with you on Friday.

    Thanks for the update on Patches. We purchased some prescription food from UCD for Guinness. Even at his worst, he would sometimes take a few nibbles. It's called Hill's Prescription Diet.

    Good luck!

    xxoo

  16. GREAT news on your lining! Thinking about you and sending you lots of luck!

    By the way, I'm sort of jealous of your viagra. As I'm sure we're all aware, "timed intercourse" (etc.) doesn't usually make for a very romantic time, and I think I could probably use some of that myself from time to time! Ha!
