Going under the knife

I don't have time to do a long post but I wanted to just post that I will be having surgery on January 26th.  I am going to have my gallbladder removed, have my endometriosis lasered, and have the ovarian diathermy done on my ovaries.  I am a little bit nervous about the insurance part of it but will keep praying that the majority of the procedure will be covered.  I am expecting to only be out of work and school for 3 or 4 days and back to my marathon training within a couple of weeks.  I hope it doesn't put me too far behind.  I am trying to not get my hopes up but you all know that my dream is for this procedure to work miracles on my messed up body and that Skeet and I will be able to get pregnant the good old fashioned way or even with a simple IUI.  Dr. S is excited about the procedure but I am getting the impression that he still thinks we will have to do IVF.  I really wish we could prove him and Dr. D wrong.  So that's it... it's going to happen, just like I wanted.  I hope I don't regret it!!

Good luck! I'm not excited for you to have to have surgery, but I really am excited for the diathermy to work!

That is such exciting news. I will pray that you have a quick recovery and that this surgery will result in a pregnancy for you. Take Care.

Candi I haven't seen you in sooo long. I wish when I lived by you, I was more aware of what you were going through. I am obsessed with your blog. I cry everytime I see your beautiful Avery. Even Kody cried last night when we listened to the song "Letter from Avery." We don't have any idea what you have been through. We had a tiny tiny taste of fertility issues, which I talked with you about a few times, but nothing even close to what you have experienced. I have a friend named Alecia Ross. She had 4 miscarriages in a row before finally having a baby in July. She did some kind of shot in her stomach three times a day during her pregnancy. She really wants to talk to you but she doesn't know you and doesn't want you to think she is crazy. I got pregnant after doing IUI and had my baby in June. Anyway I know these things are not the same as what you are dealing with, but I wanted you to know that your story has touched my life sooooo much. I want to help in any way I can. I want you to know I am praying for you. I hope your surgery goes well! Please let me know what you need. I am truly inspired by you and your strength.
