Kelly and I went into the doctor today for a routine chekup on the progress of the baby, and we had one astounding visit! First of all, everything is perfect, and couldnt be any more textbook than it is right now. So thats wonderful news. I hope everyting continues to go this well. In any case, we went in the ultrasound room, and we saw the baby! We even saw the flickering light of the heartbeat! Then to top it off, we heard the heartbeat! It was the sweetest, most beautiful sound I have ever heard in my life. Thats an event nothing can prepare you for - just sheer joy and happiness! So needless to say I am one proud daddy. The doctor came into the room, our wonderful regular doctor we see all the time, and he hugged Kelly, and gave me a healthy handshake. He said I was a good man for my patience, and he should release us to have a normal pregnancy in January!! He said things looked great, and the fact we had a heartbeat was a huge milestone.

I will get right to it. Kelly and I have been given a true Christmas miracle. See, we have been through so much hell with the ectopic pregnancies, miscarriages, etc, that we have put having/wanting a baby out of our minds for at least a year or so. The doctors said we would need to take fertility drugs to even get pregnant again. Well, much to our surprise, we are expecting a baby August 21, 2006!! She is about 6 weeks pregnant, and the doctors said it was a textbook pregnancy this time! I think this one, is the one!! I just wanted to let you all know, and also inform you that Christmas miracles happen!

Well as some of you may know, my mother and I had to make the incredibly difficult decision to put Keystone to sleep this afternoon. Some of you know him as the big black dog that I adored so much. Well, he had pancreitis (spelling) a cancer of the pancreas, among other ailments. The vet didnt give him long to live, and to live in pain for that time was something neither of us wanted for our beloved dog we have had his whole 11 years of life. Today at 5PM we had to let our dog go to heaven to be with Suka, our other dog who died this year of cancer too in January. I just ask that you go hug your pets tonight, and remember Keystone, my big black teddy bear of a dog.

Now for an update real quick. I just joined the United Methodist Church. Kelly is a Methodist, and for the first time today, I attended a Methodist service. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and joined the church. In fact, the preacher is the same one that married us, so he was thrilled to see us again today after nine months! I was born a Baptist, but wanted to explore the other denominations, and found one that I enjoy, and that is very open, hence the slogan (open hearts, open minds, open doors). Pretty cool.

Well after taking some time off to move home to Georgia, get married to the most wonderful woman on earth, and move into our beautiful home I am proud to say that I am back in the music scene. I am auditioning for bands here in Athens, GA and hopefully I will find a good band to share some good times and good music with.

Well Kelly's incision is almost closed up completely. And she was able to return to work this week after being out for seven weeks due to this major surgery and recovery. She is doing great spiritually, and is loving life. And on a personal note, we are waiting at least a year to try again for children. Give our hearts, spirits and bodies time to heal.
