Turning Point

Well well well. Here we are, an update! This time for the better!! LOL!! After two D&C procedures this year, Kelly has never felt better in her life! And I have to say, thats a wonderful feeling! We are finally back to what we consider normal in our relationship. No pain, no worrying about a baby for the time being. We still want one, so we arent doing anything to prevent it, but the worry and the obsession about trying for a baby is gone! I guess after you have been through what we have, wanting a baby takes a back seat. Not often you can be pregnant for an entire year, and have nothing but scars and emotional headaches, to show for it! If God wants us to be parents, then he will let it be! The doctors are confident we will get pregnant, and maybe even in April. That would be cool. We will just have to wait and see.

On another note, Kelly got a job running a medical practice! She is a head honcho, that rocks! I am so proud of her. I hope that she stays there, and continues on her wonderful course of being a successful manager and nurse. As far as me, well I got some job offers. I accepted a position at Home Depot, right behind the house. So, with a steady income, insurance, and a company thats not going anywhere, we are finally stable with some financial aspects. The photography business has been slow, but its been fun. I am taking pictures daily, and greatly love the satisfaction of it. I need to do some more marketing though. I feel like I am missing some leads in places. But anyway, thats that.

So some good news to report finally. Never thought I would be in 2006! This year started out awful! Thanks for all of your prayers (the people that I know read this, and the others who I dont know that might have prayed). We appreciate it! And who knows, maybe in April there will be a post about being pregnant again. Dont hold your breath!

Well more updates. Kelly was having some severe pains the other day. So, once again, we went to the OBGYN. She had a huge cyst on her ovary (the only one left) about the size of a grapefruit. So, they proceeded to do surgery/drain the cyst. Well, she also needed another d&c procedure, because the HCG levels were not going down from the previous d&c (doctor accidentally left some tissue from the previous unsuccessful pregnancy/d&c). So, two parts to the new surgery. Well, they did the surgery in about twenty minutes. She was in the recovery room for about three hours, and I brought her home. Now, I sit here, on our one year anniversary, with my wife in bed and cant move. So I decided to come on here, and write to update anyone who reads this blog.

One Year

Today is my one year anniversary!! What a year it has been I tell ya!! I am thrilled that we are stronger as a couple because of the stuff we went through. Just like that old saying, what doesnt kill you makes you stronger. So, anyway, today is the big day! But, the only drawback is Kelly is still bed ridden from surgery. Maybe one of the coming months we will be able to celebrate it like it should be celebrated. But for now, I will just sit with her and comfort her through this terrible D&C ordeal we just went through.

This picture, captured our very first dance, on March 5th, 2005 (day we were married) at the reception. I felt like there was nobody there but us in that moment. A moment I will remember for the rest of my life. I truly, love Kelly, and so glad we are married! I will love her forever, and a day.
