Birthdays, Basements and Surgical Procedures, Oh My!!!

So, yesterday was a good day. I woke up with a phone call from my Aunt who calls every year to sing Happy Birthday to me. She woke me up at 7:30 but I was just milking the sleeping since Dean was downstairs with the kids already.
He made me breakfast and then I went for a much needed pedicure. I do so love my pedicures.
When I got back, he informed me that my OB/Gyn’s office called. I am scheduled for 8/8 for an Endometrial Ablation (they cryofreeze the endometrium so it goes away….no endometrium=no bleeding every month). It might be TMI, but AF has been very strange. I had the normal post partum deal and then it just never went away. So, for the last 9 1/2 months, it is been pretty much nonstop. They tried me on 3 different kinds of Oral Contraceptives to try to regulate it, but even the “strongest” pill, did not work. The only relief was when they had me double up and take two pills a day. So, now, since we have decided that any more children are out of the question, I am having to EA done.
I had actually asked about a hysterectomy, but being in my mid thirties doesn’t make me an ideal candidate. So, we will have the in office procedure and then a couple weeks later, they are putting in a Mirena IUD to have a slow release of progesterone. Eventually AF will not exist at all. That is fine with me. My Mother didn’t hit menopause until she was 60 and the thought of AF until then is just INSANE!!!!!!!!
We spend most of the rest of yesterday cleaning out our basement. Not exactly fun, but it needed to be done. A friend is moving this weekend and was nice enough to rid us of a couple air conditioners, a bed, a TV and TV stand. So, in order to get all that out, we really HAD to clean. We eventually want to turn the basement into a family room or at the minimum, a man cave for Dean…. Nothing but the History Channel, The Military Channel and a kegerator.
We are having a get together tonight. A lot of the same gang we went camping with last month. So I hope the predicted “spotty storms” stay away at least long enough to get a few games of Redneck Horseshoes in.
