The baseline appointment went well yesterday. The cyst was gone and things are looking good. Started the femara today.
I am still worried about the timing, but am doing fairly well with the whole having peace with it soon. My NP encouraged me about some possibilities in being flexible with the timing. And, my I talked to my supervisor yesterday. I've said it before, but I am incredibly lucky. I wanted to put the timeline out on the table and make sure I am not overestimating his understanding of my circumstance and that he was still supportive. As I began to talk through all the possibilities of days 12-16 and everything it could possibly conflict with, he stopped me and said, "Let's put it this way. No matter when it falls, whenever you need to be at the doctor, you will be at the doctor.". See, lucky.
So, just ready to take my pills and get to next week. I really need this to work.
