I had been struggling with on and off abdominal pain for a few months. 
On December 24 it was constant. Of all the days, C-Eve. :(
Into the ER I went...
Question after question. Blood draws. Urine samples. Ultrasounds of different types.
Come to find out I have a cyst on my right ovary. 
After 5 hours, I was sent home with some pain meds and to keep an eye on it for 2 weeks.
We missed all of the C-Eve festivities. We got back up to my parent's house just in time to put Everett to bed. He got new jammies from G&G Stewart. He had lots of fun with G&G, Ben, Sharon and boys.
(HUGE THANK YOU to G&G, Ben and Sharon!!!)
Thankfully we didn't miss ALL of the festivities. Still ate great food, played BINGO, and got new jammies.
Nic named my cyst Earl (think of a Dixie Chicks song...'cause Earls gotta die)

Fast forward to today...I am still in pain, so I'm working on getting into see my Dr.
I'm thinking she'll want to do another ultrasound to see what Earl is doing. Maybe?
Typically these cysts come and go as they please, but don't necessarily cause pain (thanks Earl).
I have quite a few questions for my Dr so hopefully I can get in to see her soon...
