Answered Prayer

13 Oct

I have some good news.  Our Florida house, that we haven’t lived in for over 2 years, is under contract.  🙂  If everything goes well we will close in 2 weeks!  We still have to go there and pack up the rest of our stuff and move it to Tennessee though…..so the next 2 weeks are going to be pretty stressful.  We are very happy though (and so are our finances) that we will be rid of this extra house for good!  We have lost so much money on it and are still having to bring money with us to closing, but it is a huge blessing that we won’t have to continue to pour money into a house that we don’t live in.  Even though it didn’t work out the way we would’ve liked we are very thankful.  Thank you Lord for your blessings.

Another answer to prayer is that I went to a new doctor this week because of the hormone issues I’ve been having since chemo.  He thinks he may know why Kevan and I have been unable to have children.  So, it may soon be what we have been praying for FOR YEARS.  Funny story first – he asked me to give him a “brief history” of my medical history.  I told him everything from tonsils to endometriosis to Graves Disease to thyroid ablation to heart ablation to breast cancer…double mastectomy….chemo….reconstruction…..he was like, “um….is that it?  Or is there more?”  He had this look on his face like, “Is this girl serious??”  LOL!  That’s it!  🙂  Anyway, during our discussions of my current symptoms and what we’ve done previously for infertility he believes I may have Luteal Phase Defect (LPD) and that it is the reason we have never been able to have a child.  I’m excited that we may have finally found the answer.  I’ve researched it since and I do have a lot of the symptoms they are describing and he said that it is pretty easy to “fix” if that is the issue and it is done by medication.  I am praying that God will let this be the reason.  🙂  Maybe sometime soon I will be a breast cancer survivor that has also given birth to a healthy child.  It has given me hope!  Also, he is going to do a procedure (robotic-assisted laparoscopy) to determine if my endometriosis is doing okay and whether the scar tissue from my last laparoscopy may be the reason for the infertility.  Back in 2009 when we were going through all of the infertility tests this was their conclusion…that is was due to scar tissue from past surgeries even though the “dye test” was a success.   During the procedure he is also going to do an endometrial biopsy and this will help diagnose the LPD.  So…..that is just a quick update of my last doctor appointment.

Right now I’m writing this as Kevan is preparing for his Sunday School lesson tomorrow.  I just looked over at him and he is asleep in his chair.  lol!  We had a hard day cleaning the garage.  My poor baby is T-I-R-E-D.  lol!  I hope he’s ready for his lesson tomorrow.  I’m trying to decide if I should wake him up or let him sleep.
