A long over due post....

I haven't written in weeks. I wish I could say it was because I have been so busy or something but really it is just pure lazy on my part. There is so much to say that it is pretty much going to be random and what my composition prof. would call "freewriting." Here goes

They want to do a hyst. FINALLY. I am waiting to hear from the surgeon about when and all that cause we are waiting for paperwork and stuff to go through since we are poor and can't pay out of pocket. I am thrilled and nervous and scared and excited all at the same time. I want my life back. Well, really I want my life AND my uterus but beggers can't be chosers I suppose.

Dan quit is temp job at TaxAct to stay and work from home full time so he can take care of me. The pain is so bad this time that I can't get in and out of the tub or on and off the toilet without help. Let me tell you, it takes a special kind of hubby that will help you stand up from the toilet while still telling you how much he loves you. He is my rock and I have no idea what I would ever do without him. One day he is going to make the most amazing father.

I started spring classes a couple weeks ago and they are all online since I can't drive or walk or pretty much anything anymore. I am liking them ok, and I am actually far ahead in all of them so that when I can actually get in for my surgery than I will be able to focus on getting better and not worrying about things coming up due. That is the plan anyways.

On February first Dan and I are taking our first class to become foster/adoptive parents in the state of Iowa. I am pretty nervous but excited too...because I know after this surgery I will be able to be a good mom and all that. We are still discussing the age group we want to go for, but other than that we are on the page and both UBER excited. We WILL be parents.

other than that there is not much new...I will try to post more often and keep my readers updates...I love you all!~

Yay for foster/adopt!!! Let me know if you run into any questions.

Have you gotten a second opinion on the hyst?

Congratulations on taking steps forward. That's always a positive direction to be moving. And I'm very anxious to hear about your foster/adopt journey. It is an option that I've been considering for a while now so, being in Iowa as well, I'm curious about how things work here.

My heart is breaking reading this... I am so sorry your endo is so bad. Every time I start to complain, I need to remember that I still have time and the ability to function semi-normally. I need to remember that it can be so much worse.

I am so sorry; but so happy you are getting your hyst if that's what you want. My doctors want that for me too (the damage to my other organs is what scares them the most), but I'm just not there yet. Not until after baby at least. I just want one; and then I will be fine with adopting the rest, but just once... I'm just not there yet to say "take it all out", but if you are I am so proud and happy for you! I really am...

Stay strong!
