Sleepy & Happy!

Surgery went really well today. I was home around 4:00 and have been feeling really good for the most part. Max has been taking excellent care of me and Mom Masters brought us dinner tonight which was great. My parents sent me the most beautiful flowers that totally brightened my day.
We got a lot of good news today. There was very little endometriosis so it has NOT been coming back aggresively like we had been worried about. However I did have tons of scar tissue and a cyst on each ovary which were probably causing a lot of trouble for us. We also found out that my ovaries were pinned which would have been causing trouble too. The doctor got everything cleaned up and freed up and got the cysts removed. He also used something (i am drawing a blank on the name) to put everywhere that he removed scar tissue to stop it from coming back. He is VERY optimistic that taking care of these problems will really increase our chances of getting pregnant!! YAY!! We are so blessed.
We go in for a follow-up appointment on May 1st and will learn what we will be doing next when we go in then. For now I am resting and healing and feeling VERY blessed that everything went so smoothly and that I am feeling so good.
Thanks again for all of your prayers. God is so good to us!

Surgery Again

We found out today that I have to have surgery next Wednesday the 15th. We will be doing a laproscopy just like we did last February. The surgery will remove all the endometriosis that has come back and repair anything that the endo has caused damage to. And the doctor needs to see exactly what is going on in there so that he can better decide what needs to happen for us to get pregnant.
I hate IV's and the feeling of trying to wake up after being drugged. YUCK!! But I know that it is worth it and I know that I can do it. Max and I are much less worried since we know what to expect this time. I am just ready to do it and have it over with so that we can move on with this process.
So please pray for calmness and safety for me and knowledge for my doctor next Wednesday. We know you have all been praying for us and it really means so much to us. We hope everyone has a great Easter weekend. How lucky are we that Jesus died on the cross for our sins because he LOVES us soo much!?
