The idea of this latest test is to get a sense of my lining and whether it is a receptive place for a little embryo to grow. So a snippet of my uterine lining is now winging its way to the aforementioned Yale researcher so he can look for things like the progesterone receptor, and mouse ascites Golgi mucin, and cyclin E (which shouldn't be there), and also to check and see if leukemia inhibitory factor, αvß3 integrin, HOXA-10, and p27 ARE there, because they should be. Got that? Me neither. Totally confused.
Apparently results will take a couple of weeks, so we'll see what said researcher thinks soon.
I have to say, I'm not holding my breath. Instead I'm moping around a little bit.
I do hope that something informative will come out of this, I really do. But at the same time, this is starting to feel a little bit like an exercise in the absurd. Know what I mean?
