A quick post..

Hello Everyone! I feel badly that I've not been on in so long. I am still not feeling too well; so I've been trying to rest and take it easy. Sarah, my youngest daughter had her surgery this weekend. It didn't turn out like we had hoped it would. The Doctor was not able to fix her uterus. He was hoping it was just heart shaped and that he could clip the part hanging down. It turns out that she has 2 complete uteruses. They are smaller than they would be normally...but it is 2. This explains why she has had so much trouble from the beginning. She actually has periods from both!! If he could have fixed it, it would have made it where she wouldn't have trouble with miscarriages. But, because he couldn't...she will still likely have trouble in that way. He said she would be able to get pregnant, but that the baby would come early. She did also have endometriosis in each uterus, and he said he would discuss that with us when we come in for her follow up appointment. I was pretty upset when the doctor came out and told me. We had really been hoping he would be able to completely fix her. She took it better than I did I think...but, I don't really know. She's been in a lot of pain from the incisions. There were 2. I feel badly....I just wasn't able to get on before now. I hope you all know that you have been in my thoughts and prayers anyway :)
I hope that everyone's Thanksgiving is Wonderful and Happy! Thanksgiving is such a great holiday. It' s a happy time for families to spend time together and reflect on what they have to be thankful for :) It's also a time to reflect on how grateful we are for the wonderful and sweet angel friends that God has sent our way. I am so thankful for each and every one of you...for all the sweet comments, e-mails and cards....I am so lucky to have such a blessing of friends :)
A Very Happy Thanksgiving to each and every one of you!!

Oh Sweetie! I am so sorry that Sarah's surgery was unsuccessful! Don't despair though, she is still young and doctor's (and God!) are doing amazing things every day.:) I am sad to hear that you are still feeling badly. Oh my.... I will keep the prayers coming, dear friend. I am so glad you like your necklace! I do believe that it was made for you- I just didn't know it at the time.:) You are such a sweetheart and I am so thankful to have you as my friend.:) Lori

Hi Jerelene,
I kept thinking that you must be really busy lately and I guess I was somewhat right. I'm sorry that you are still not feeling 100%. Katie and I have been sick on and off too, just can't seem to shake it.
That news about your daughter was so disappointing. It sounds as though all is not lost though, so I will keep praying for your family. My DIL had endometriosis and is doing fine now. Please keep us informed as to how she is doing.
I hope and pray that things will turn around for the better for your family Jerelene and that you are able to have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day.
Love Di

God's going to come through for you! I am going to be praying for your daughter, that the doctors will be able to use the new information they have to find a way to help her, to heal her. I pray that God will give them answers and empower them to make wise decisions on her part.

Jerelene, My heart goes out to you and your daughter. I hope you begin to feel better soon. The holidays are a time for joy and happiness and it's no fun when you're sick. My thoughts and prayers are with you both.
Hugs to you

Good evening Jerelene. I popped over to wish you a happy Thanksgiving. I know I'm a little late. I was very sorry to hear about everything you and your daughter are going through. I will pray for you both. Take care of your self and know that we all love you here in blogland.

Jerelene, I know (firsthand) how difficult it is to watch your daughter go through these procedures and pains. A mother wishes she could go through it instead of the daughter (if somebody MUST).

It was kind of you to take the time to update us. Count on my prayers and the grace and mercy of God who is all-powerful and all-knowing. He can turn very negative circumstances into positive outcomes for those who are faithful to Him.

Your blog background is beautiful. May it remind you of the beauty God sees in YOU and bring you (in time) to a place of healing and joy during this blessed season.

Hi Jerelene, so sorry about your sweet daughter. When she is ready to have children God will provide a way. You just need to keep that in mind. Not OUR way but HIS way is the best way. We may not like it or agree with it but if we just trust in God. I hope you are feeling well and that you get your strength back soon. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. hugs..
