Escape

We didn't get very good news at the doctor today. My scan revealed a lining that is essentially unchanged even after nearly 4 full weeks on the estrogen patches. So, it's not working. The nurse instructed me to keep wearing the patches and make an appointment to see Dr. Dunn next week. I got an appointment for Monday, and the first thing I did when I got home was remove the patches. I can't see any point in continuing to be miserable if there's no benefit.

I have this sudden urge to just escape. I came within an inch of booking a trip to Acapulco yesterday. For some reason, every time I get really down about all this, I get the strong desire to plan a vacation. I guess it gives me something to look forward to. Also, being on a gorgeous beach is a very therapeutic thing for me. One of my favorite moments from our Hawaii trip was sitting in the sand, right at the foot of the waves and just listening to the water and feeling the warm sun & the crystal blue water on my feet and legs. I could really use a moment like that right about now.

Jamie and I are actually giving some fairly serious consideration to a short trip this summer, even though we said we weren't going to travel this year. We're looking at a few resorts in Mexico. Jamie wants to do Cabo San Lucas, but the airfare is considerably higher in comparison to Acapulco. What I'm really hoping is that we'll talk ourselves out of this altogether and save some money. At the same time, can you really put a price on your sanity??

Ugh. I totally get it. Every time I get bad news, I just want to go on a trip. Almost like leaving all of it behind. Not having to think about it.

I'm sorry that you didn't get better news today...

No, there is no price to be put on sanity. I would go if I were you. Sometimes you just need a getaway. *hugs*

Ugh...that news sucks.

My sanity is in the disguise of a florida key named Islamorada...I've been bugging Joe to take me there for years. Now you know why I am SO crazy.
