After extensive consultation with my rheumatologist and OB/GYN, the collective decision was to, if at all possible, avoid the risks inherent in any surgery performed on an immune-suppressed subject. (Many of the drugs used to control rheumatoid arthritis inhibit immune response.)
Given this, back in March I had a Mirena IUD inserted, and so far, so good! However, if this had not worked out for me, the next step would have been the ligation.
Got passport photos today. I will now be internationally identifiable as that American woman in black with the prodigiously fly-away hair :-) Planning to get the whole lashup of photos, old poassport, application and fees in the mail early next week.
I would be the last person, anywhere, to deny that what we know of reality is nothing compared to what we don’t know. However, I resent this movie’s use of intelllectual trickery and sleight-of-hand to represent this marvelous mystery – the truth should (and does!) stand on its own! Why degrade it with silly computer graphics, supposition masquerading as legitimate “research” and persistent evasion about the actual credibility of many of the people interviewed? If you think this film was a documentary, think again – and do a little honestly skeptical research.
