I took it easy today. I made some gluten-free butter tarts:
Had my blood drawn at two different labs (one for HCG for RE, other for thyroid for endocrinologist).
I actually ate some food today, and had a 20 minute nap. I cried on three separate occasions when I thought about returning to work. I have this sense of impending doom that is consuming me. After talking it through with DW, it’s become clear that I am not fit to work for physical and emotional reasons. I think I need to go on a medical leave from my job temporarily.
Some good news though, my HCG has increased since August 22nd. It was 1800, and is now 39435. That’s a doubling time of 75 hours, which is good for that range.
The RE moved up my ultrasound from Thursday to tomorrow. He also wants me off work for a week, after which time we reassess.
So that’s the plan for now.
Thanks everyone for your support.
