John's surgery is scheduled for Thursday 2/25/10. We don't have a specific time, but at least we have a date now! We will be receiving a packed in the mail and hopefully it will have a time. We will be going to Massachusetts General Hospital. We are excited and nervous. I am hoping this helps John feel better and helps him get healthy again.

We really like the Dr. who will be preforming the surgery. He knows all of our concerns and he has gone over the risk and we understand. Varicoceles are something that John will be faced with for the rest of his life. Although it is stated that it is harmless, the Dr. believes that the varicocele is the cause of John's low sperm count, low testoterone (which causes his mood swings) and the pain that he has been experiencing.

The prognosis looks very good for repairing all the issues that the varicocele has created and also we are praying that it will help in our journey to add more little ones to the the family!

Getting better!

Happy Birthday Jody!!!!!!!!!

Things have been good. The Dr. didn't call with a surgery date, but John will call and harass them next

Work is good, there are changes being made that are upsetting, but life will go on.

Jocelynn is doing great. Still working at staying dry at night, but we are moving in baby steps forward. She is always surprising me with the little things she comes up with.

I have been doing ok. I am feeling better after having some kinda sinus/chest congestion thing. Not sure what it was all about but it can go away. ever since my pneumonia last July, I have had a small cough, but this is crazy. I might head to the Dr. next week if it doesn't get any better.

I am officially late again.....not hoping too much, but always a little. I just wish I could take a pregnancy test and know for sure yes or no. I hate being in Limbo. I suppose if I don't start by Thursday/Friday I will call the Dr. That will put me past the longest cycle I have ever had. It would be great if this was our month.....I guess only time will tell.

Appointment Down.....bring on the hospital!

Today was John's appointment with the surgeon. We didn't get a surgery date, but we will have one by the end of the week....hopefully. The Dr. said the ladies that schedule the surgery will be calling Thursday or Friday, So I am pretty sure we will have a date by Friday.

The surgery is a little more involved then we first thought. He may have to stay in MHG over night for observation. The Dr. said if he looks good and feels good the evening of the surgery, then by all means he will send him home. Surgery will be on a Thursday, the Dr. said end of February, Beginning of March.....but we will know more

I am feeling better. Still not 100%. I have this weird nasal.chest congestion and clicking in my ears when I swallow. I guess I will be going to the Dr. if I am not better by next week.

Jocelynn is doing good. She amazes me every day! She is so funny and so entertaining with her 'phrases' she comes out with.

Just tonight, Mom was taking down the curtains in the living room and Bath room, Jocelynn comes in and says "grammie you are ruining my life." Mom said "what?" and Jocelynn said "you are ruining my life by taking down the curtains." I don't know were she comes up with these

CD27 today. Not sure what will happen this month, but I guess the next 10 days will tell.

Sick, sick and sick....

Things have been interesting in the last week. Jocelynn is doing good again with staying dry at night. I can't believe how proud of her I am for accomplishing this. I know we still have a long road ahead, but we are headed in the right direction!

John received a call from Dr. Cori in Mass. We have an appointment on wednesday 1/20 at 2pm for his surgery consultation. I hope that we have a surgery date when we leave the office.

I have been busy with work and sick. Some kind of sinus/cold thing going on. It started Tuesday(1/12)afternoon around 3pm. My nose became unbelievable stuffy, I left work at 4 and came home and went straight to bed. Tossed and turned all night. Luckily I had Wednesday off from work and I called out of work on Thursday. Both days I spent 3/4 of the day in bed sleeping and napping and didn't get dressed until later afternoon when I had to go to the store for more meds or juice. Nyquil (day and nigh) has become my best friend. I did manage to go to work today and stay the entire day. I am starting to feel better and hope to be 100% by Sunday.

The TTC is going slow. I'm not even sure were I am in my cycle or if I ovulated. John and I have decided to TTC naturally until after his surgery. I am happy and sad about this at the same time. I just feel like life is passing me by. I will be 31 in just 4 weeks and my biological clock is SCREAMING in my ear. I know we are headed in the right direction and everything is in God's hands and by his timing, I just am not a patient person.

"strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously" Colossians 1:11

Happy New Year!!!! 2010

Better late then never...LOL Things have been crazy here for the last week!

Happy Birthday MOM! Her Birthday was on 1/4

Jocelynn has had a little back slide. She hasn't woke up dry since my last post. Things have been crazy and we have been a little relaxed on letting her have water before bed. We will get there!

I have spent way too much time in the hospital the last few days. Not for me but my Dad. He hurt his leg at work before Christmas and I told him to go and have it looked at (he is prone to infection). Well, he didn't and sure enough, New Years Day it was all red. He went to the ER and they gave him a shot of antibiotics and a prescription.

The next morning it was worse, he went to the ER (Sat) as directed the day before and the Dr. decided to go right to IV antibiotics and a new prescription for stronger antibiotics. He was instructed to came back again the next day.

The next morning (Sun) it looked even worse. Back to the ER we go for IV Antibiotics. with instructions to come back again the next day.

On Monday, it didn't look any better, off to the ER as instructed, this time they admitted him so they could administer IV Antibiotics 4 times a day.

Dad is now home, finally, today (Thur). It still isn't complete recovered but it does look better. He is out of work until a week from Monday.

It seems funny that if he had only listened to his daughter he could have avoided all of this! MEN!

We are still in a holding pattern for John's Surgery. Hoping to get that scheduled tomorrow or the beginning of next week. The meds seem to be helping with the mood swings and lack of energy. At least we are moving in the right direction, even if it is slowly!
