Feeling Hopeful

Finally some good news!
When I woke up from surgery yesterday I got several pieces of good news from my doctor:
1 - The cyst was not actually a cyst, it was a "dermoid." I don't know a whole lot about dermoids, since the doctor just briefly explained them to Andy, but it sounds like a small cluster of semi-fertilized eggs that was causing some disruptions to the function of my ovaries.
2 - There were no signs of Endometriosis
3 - While they had me opened up they decided to do an HSG or dye test to see if my fallopian tubes were open- they both are!
4 - The doctor was able to completely remove the dermoid and save my healthy, pink little ovaries!
5 - All things considered he made it sound like everything looked very good!

I have an appointment on July 8th when we'll learn more but for now it sounds like this dermoid may have been the most significant obstacle to our trying to get pregnant! I still have the PCOS to battle with but I'm encouraged by the doctor's saying that the tissues/organs in that area looked healthy!

I feel like I'm recovering well, we ended up spending about 4 hours in the ER today because I was having unexplained pain in my left leg that needed to be checked for a clot but I was sent home with an "all clear" and I'm feeling fine!

Thank the Lord for good news, and thank you everyone for your prayers and support!
