Tomorrow morning at 8:45 I have an appointment for an ultrasound. That sounds ordinary but it is in fact unpleasant. For the last year or more my monthly periods have gotten way out of control and it time to do something about that. A couple of weeks ago I met with an ob/gyn and discussed some options. At that point he did a uterine wall biopsy and scheduled this ultrasound. The point is to make sure there are no abnormalities. He doesn't expect to find any but said that if he does we will go ahead and just do a total hysterectomy. If everything is normal then we will proceed with a much less invasive procedure called ablation. Its a permanent solution with much less pain and recovery.
This ultrasound will require a catheter. I will be dilated and a catheter will be inserted into my uterus to fill it with saline. Doesn't sound very pleasant to me but I have been told that it is nothing compared to the biopsy a couple of weeks ago. Although I am really anxious about fixing my issues and very blessed to have found a Dr willing to do what I want , I am not looking forward to tomorrow.I have been through worse I know so I realize that this is probably worse in my head than it will actually be.I am hoping to leave there tomorrow with a date for a procedure.
I have prayed many times today for a family that even though I don't know has touched my heart so very deeply.Travis and Samantha Bode had a baby girl today named Samantha. Baby Samantha was born with several health issues . Further testing will be required to find out what kind of impact the issues will have but the last I read on Facebook, baby Samantha was breathing on her own which I believe was a concern before her birth. I just want to take this time to praise God for bringing this little one into the world strong enough to breathe on her own . They have a long scary road ahead but my God is so big and so merciful that I know he will be with them every step of the way. Happy birthday Samantha !
Today was my first day back on the blogging train so I don't expect that I will be doing two or more blogs a day every day . I truly don't have the time for that but I will keep this fairly current at all times, or that is the plan anyway. Until next time....peace to you all.

My husband Eric is a soldier in the North Carolina National Guard and was deployed to Iraq in 2009. While he was gone I created a Myspace account and blogged almost daily for a long time. I am more of a Facebooker now and I write notes sometimes to share with my friends but I have truly missed blogging.Sometimes I just need to spew in a safe place and sometimes I just want to share my thoughts with those people in my life that I don't talk to on a regular basis. I hope I can get back into the habit of doing this. Please feel free to make any comments you would like , but be warned bad language will not be tolerated here. Its my blog and I say so.
