The Baby Process

Going to the fertility clinic is an amazing thing. I didn't know how little I actually knew about reproduction. There's day 1 of the cycle, and day 3 of the cycle. They all do something different. I have, so for had 4 ultrasounds and 3 outpatient test. I had a hystersalpinogram. That test was horrible. They shoot radiated dye up into the uterus. Wow, I almost passed out.

Tomorrow, I am having a hysteroscopy polypectomy done. I have 3 tiny polyps and Dr. Miller says these can be like IUD's and stop implantation. My procedure will be done in outpatient surgery. So I will be put under for it. It's at 4pm tomorrow. Say a prayer. Not sure what the next step is after that, but will keep ya'll posted.

Wow, I haven't blogged in a while.

I can't believe it's been so many months since I have last blogged. A lot has been going on around here. I had emergency surgery with my sinuses. They even had to go up in my forehead, so it actually said on my consent "brain surgery" Wow, but I am on the mend. I have to take a lot of meds, but the doc is slowly weaning me off them.

Also, hubby and I have gone to a fertility clinic. Our doctor says, that he anticipates we will be pregnant by late December or early January.

God is so good, old wounds with hubby's ex-wife are being healed. We actually invited her and her husband over for dinner, and they came!! Praise Jesus for that. The kids are doing so much better, since they realize the tension level has dropped to near zero, between all adults in their lives.

Thanks for all those prayers!! Please pray for our future little baby, I am 43 and not getting any younger.

I plan on keeping you posted!!

A Snow Day in Chicago

Today Hubby and I spent the afternoon in Chicago with Hubs, brother, dad and mom. We had a pretty good time. Every Monday and Tuesday for the month of February, it's free admission to all the museums. We picked the Shedd aquarium to go to. I've been to the aquarium in New Orleans, LA and Chattanooga, TN. I think I liked both of those better. But I guess it's all about the people you're with too and not necessarily what you're doing. Right???

Anyway, we had a bit of a snow storm last night and so there was plenty of snow in Chitowne to enjoy. I took quite a few pictures, hope you like them.

I'll have more pictures to upload tomorrow, of the fish:-)

Doing a Little Decorating,Watching Wrestling and Valentine's day

I hope ya'll had a terrific Valentines day. We had company all weekend. Friday we picked up Niko and then Sunday night Phil's family came over to visit and we all watched the TNA wrestling pay per view event together. Well, actually Phil's mom and I watched "The Proposal" in the den, but you get the idea:-)

Anyway, I finally found a entertainment center for my living room. After searching for almost 2 years for the perfect one. We found it on QVC. It has a built in electric fireplace and it is perfect in the space I wanted to place it in. When I get everything all set up, I'll take a picture and show you the completed project.
I also want to get wooden blinds to go throughout my living and dining rooms. I have found some at JCPenny online. I am going to work some extra shifts to get those.

I gotta get ready for work. Have a terrific day.

Yep, It's a Snow Day!!

Last night (Monday) it started snowing. The weather man said "it's going to be a relentless snow". He was right 24hrs later, it's still snowing. It's not supposed to stop until around noon tomorrow (Wednesday).

Handy had fun out in it today. I didn't have quite as much fun. Note to self, when getting snow off the car, try not to wipe it towards self, because the wind will blow it all in your face. (yep, I had that happen.) This southern girl, still has a lot to learn, when it comes to snow.

It's a Who Dat Kinda Day!!!

Wow, I can't believe 2 months have passed since my last post. I have been soooo, busy. I started a new part-time job at a local hospital. I really like it. I have been able to pick up extra hours, so I have really been working full-time. Also during this time, we have had drama going on with Hubby's ex-wife. Does it ever end? We've been to court and have court again at the end of this month. I'll tell you this though. I have definitely been able to see God's hand working in all of this mess.

I had a biopsy done on my face. I had a spot that used to be a freckle, but turned into a big itchy place. Thankfully it was benign. And Niko was in the hospital for 2 weeks, and then Hubby had surgery on his knee this past Friday. Whewww, that's a lot of stuff going on.

A bright spot in everything is, THE SAINTS!! WON the SUPER BOWL!! WOOO HOOO!!

WHO DAT SAY THEY GONNA BEAT DEM SAINTS? WHO DAT? WHO DAT? You should have seen me jumping up and down and hollering last night. I've been a Saints fan all my life, it has finally paid off. :-)

Hope ya'll have a good day. Please bear with me as I am doing my blog make over!!
