All is well here in Colorado!
We had a beautiful and sunny 70 degree day on Monday and a 40 degree drop with blizzard like conditions yesterday. Today was somewhere in between. My appointments are going smoothly (thankgoodness!) and I can't say enough good things about the processes and staff at this clinic. Impeccable all the way around!
DH and I braved the storm yesterday and checked out the historic Broadmoor Hotel and Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs and we took a ride to Vail today. We had lunch in the village with a beautiful snowy view. It felt like we were in a wonderous snow globe! And, we saw three bighorn sheep! That is something we don't see in California! ;)
We anticipate a retrieval possibly Sunday. The endo pain is nothing like it was when I had the lovely combo early last week of AF and estrogen priming, but I still have some common aches and pains associated with the endo. Especially on my left side where the larger endometriomas are at. I will be glad to see the retrieval through where they will (hopefully) be able to drain the endometriomas, which will be a foot in the right direction toward suppressing the endo before a transfer later this summer. Assuming we have a genetically beautiful embryo to transfer! Fx!
