It's been a while since I posted an update on our blog. I have since had surgery and discovered that I had endometriosis. In addition, my doctor removed a cyst (that concerned him) as well as scar tissue. While removing one of the surgical scopes, he ruptured a blood vessel all resulting in a much extended recovery period. However, this diagnosis, and the doctor's medical intervention, now enables us to further try to have a baby.
For over 2 years we have tried unsuccessfully to get pregnant. After undergoing months on fertility drugs, and finally an IUI with the specialists (unsuccessful), Fred and I felt it was best to allow my body to rest. The surgery last week, was an effort to assure we had not missed anything. Well, we had. Trusting now in God's plan, we hope to have a baby in the near future.
Amber continues to do really well in school. I cannot believe she will be in high school next year. As it is now, she will go to school at the same school Fred teaches at. I will miss her terribly as she has gone with me since 4th grade, and prior to that either mom, or I took her to school. So this will be a huge adjustment for me.
I sometimes sit in amazement at God's amazing Grace, and his continued blessings on my life. I don't have to look far to see the amazing people, friends, and family, he has placed in my life. After many years of praying and patiently waiting, he gave me Fred. After this past week, I truly have seen the loving, caring, kind hearted man he is. Furthermore, the amazing daughter he has blessed me with. She is so in love with God and her faith is so strong. She loves her church, youth group, and finds ALL her strength in God. For me, this is the ultimate revelation of the great love of God. I could not want for anything more.
As I wrap up this post, stop for a minute and look at all you have been blessed with. Remember, nothing happens without a reason. With Love....
