I spoke too soon

Yesterday I had another beta. We were expecting another low score and to get permission to leave on out trip.
Unfortunately, when we got our results back yesterday, we were at a 553 (Monday's was a 502). Not only was the vacation cancelled but we also had to go back for another dose of the methotrexate this morning. We considered going ahead with the surgery instead of a second dose but we were able to meet with my OB before making the decision. I really trust his opinion and although he said he would do the surgery if we wanted it, he suggested the second dose.

Since I always like to look at the positives, I am handling this dose MUCH better than the last dose. Although I was extremely tired I felt good otherwise.

I have another beta on Monday and we'll see where things are then.
