Laprascopy Update

Wow! I never realized just what a major surgery that would be (especially since I honestly thought this was going to be more exploratory than anything (I thought they wouldn't find anything wrong) but as usual, I was I wrong ). I'm so much better today than I was yesterday though. Yesterday I felt like I had been run over by a truck!

First off, yay that the procedure got bumped up from 11:30 am to 9 am b/c of a cancellation ahead of me! Actually, I think God knew he'd need extra time on me or something. I'm not sure how long the procedure actually took but Mike said they wheeled me away at about 9:30 & the dr didn't come back to talk to him till 11:30 & then it was 3 pm before we got to go home so all in all, a very long day. *sigh* I call Monday to make a follow up appointment in approximately 2 weeks so be on the lookout for another update then!

So apparently it was a MESS in there & according to Mike the first thing out of Dr S's mouth was how he didn't know how in the world I got pregnant last year & how it was a miracle that we did get pregnant considering what he found during my lap. My ovary & tube were attached to my abdominal wall so he got to work & detached them & put them back where they belong. Woo-hoo! But I'm still not sure if it really helped in terms of "was this the reason I've been having such a hard time getting pregnant" since I know he feels that my ovary is just kaput. He never mentioned to Mike that this lap might help us get pregnant... he only said that he didn't know if we could get pregnant but I know I can get pregnant with God's help... I did before with my ovary in such a difficult place. Go God!

Now for the TMI/possibly gross part... the pictures! But be forewarned: (though honestly I think it's pretty cool--that's why I'm sharing )

Oh & something else interesting... I haven't heard anything embryo donation from Resolve in a loooooooooooong time (apparently about a month) & guess what they posted yesterday... the day of my lap!? Another embryo donation video....Multiple Embryo Donations....& on such an important day in my trying to conceive journey too. I just wanted to document it but for now we are moving forward with meds unless the Lord guides us otherwise. After meds, I honestly don't know what we'll do since we're waiting on God's wisdom. We'll just have to wait & see what the Lord has in store, I guess! Regardless though, I know He's carrying us through this & preparing us for great things!!!


  1. I like all your smiley faces! Glad the doctor was able to fix some things. My doctor told us after my lap that our chances of getting pregnant were "significantly higher but not guaranteed". Obviously God has other plans for us but it's good to know that things are "fixed" inside hopefully! Praying for a quick recovery for you!

  2. are very strong. I know it's God through you and that is so encouraging.

    Thank you so much for your kind comment and book reference! It is hard finding a really good I will take all the help I can get! Please feel free to stop by any time or if you need to chat:) I am excited to see how God will (and is) using you through this!
