Surgery Success

Wednesday morning I had my pre-op appointment for my surgery. Since I have never had surgery before I had no idea what to expect. After 2 1/2 of going from station to station I was pre-admitted to the hospital. The worst part was being asked if I have a living will, which I do. It just scared me, but I know they have to ask.

Kyle knew I wasn't feeling that great emotionally so he decided to take me to dinner. We ended up at BJ's Brewhouse. We had delicious pizza and ended the meal with their famous pizookies (chocolate chunk, cookies and cream, triple chocolate). It was amazing! I couldn't eat after midnight so this meal hit the spot.


Yesterday was the big day. I got up at 4:45am, put on comfy clothes and off we headed to the hospital. I was checked in at 6:45am , changed clothes, got my IV and was carted off to the OR at roughly 7:30. I do not remember anything after saying goodbye to Kyle.

The plan was to completely take the left tube and examine the right. If it looked bad they would remove it as well. 

I woke up at 9:45am in recovery and saw my husbands sweet face. He told me that they did indeed remove the left tube, it was damaged well beyond repair. The right however was in perfect condition!!! I was sent home at 12:30 and have been resting ever since. I am not experiencing too much pain, mostly just uncomfortable. I have a post-op appointment in a few weeks and we are praying that this is another step in the right direction and achieving our goal!

I received these amazing flowers yesterday and it made me so happy. 

Kyle, Emma and Fishy gave me the bouquet on the left. My dad, sister, brother in law, niece and nephew sent me the arrangement on the right. I love my family!


Kyle has taken such great care of me. He helps me move, makes me food, keeps me company and he even laid in bed with me and watched Catching Fire. Oh how I love him!

Thank you all for the continued love and support. I will hopefully be up and about by tomorrow. 

Have an amazing weekend!!

  40. So glad that your family is supportive of you in your time of need after surgery. BJ's is wonderful food. Hoping that you still won't need IVF will be able to conceive on your own. Have you checked out Dr. Joanne Kwak Kim from Chicago as a thought? She has helped several infertile patients conceive a baby.
