God knew exactly what I needed to hear yesterday. This was our opening hymn. I had a tough week last week. A follow up ultrasound showed the cyst on my ovary is still growing. Not wanting to take the pill to see if it helped, the family and I made a trip to Atlanta to see the closest NFP doctor in our area. I wasn't prepared for what she had to say.... My uterus is enlarged (13 week pregnancy) - but no baby:( Also the cyst on my ovary is huge. Back in 2005 I lost my left ovary to endometriosis. She felt sure this was exactly what was growing inside me again. The laprascopic surgery back in April showed lots of adhesions. At that time my doctor cleaned up my remaining ovary and tried to protect it with a mesh covering. I took the pictures from that surgery with me to see Dr. Raviele. She took one look at them and said, "You have terrible endometriosis." After the exam she said there is nothing else that can be done and I needed to have a hysterectomy soon. WOW- I was sitting there hoping for some progesterone cream or something :/ Oh well, God knows what He is doing. So once again I will take up my cross and follow Him! Please pray for us all. The surgery is scheduled for Thursday morning 6:30 am.
While in Atlanta we did have some fun though. We visited Stone Mountain. Since it was Labor Day they had an amazing laser and fireworks show! We all really enjoyed it! We all hope to go back one day and ride the duck and the skylift.
Have a blessed week
