Most of you know already that I have colitis.
I was first diagnosed with it my junior year in high school. For at least the past 10 years, it has been under control and I haven't had any physical problems with it. Unfortunately, my gastrointerologist thinks that my colitis might be the reason we are having such a hard time getting pregnant. So he recommended that I try a new medication to see if it will heal me completely before moving on to IVF.
So yesterday I had my first treatment with the new medicaiton. It is given intravenously....for TWO HOURS! Yes, you read that correctly. I sat at the doctors office and received the medication through an IV for two hours. I will go back again in two weeks, then in another four weeks, and than after that I will receive the medication once every eight weeks. It's not my ideal why of receiving medication, but it sure beats taking four pills three times a day AND if it helps us get pregnant, I'm all for it!
For good measure, I called our local Children's Home Society and put our name on the invitation list to attend their next Adoption Seminar...our time is JUST AROUND THE CORNER!!!
