I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

First pre-op tomorrow

We are meeting with the GI surgeon tomorrow morning for pre-op one out of two. My other one will be next Tuesday...just a few days before surgery. I am starting to get a little anxious. I am pretty anxious about my appointment tomorrow too...I'm not sure why. Maybe because I am not quite sure what to expect. Probably just going to be sitting down with the Dr., going over my background and the "game plan"; I guess?

Anyway, just a little over a week away now. I know the anxieties will begin building and building (cause, that's just me). I'm just ready to be awake after surgery, and, ready to move on with this next phase of healing!!!

Sorry I've been so MIA. I've pretty much been OOT for about 2 weeks now. Back for a while now though. it'll be nice to chill at home the next few weeks! I need to catch up on my blogging friends! I hope you all are well!!!

Hope everything went well for you today! I know this may sound strange, but I wish I could be having another Lap as well. I felt sooooooooooooooo good after mine for about a year and now the pains are starting to come back big-time. If they were free (ha!) I'd have one every year if necessary. Anyway, can't wait to hear how it all went and what the game plan is! I really hope this makes the difference you need it to!
