Thank you so much for your prayers for my appointment. The ultrasound came back clear as far as anything left inside my uterus, which was a huge answer to prayer. We also got to talk with my doctor about the surgery and got a date for August 2nd, which is absolutely perfect because it is Jon's first day of vacation after teaching summer school.
My left ovary doesn't look very good - apparently, the cyst is inside the ovary, which makes it much harder to get to without damaging the ovary. The right ovary does not look as bad, thank God. We are praying for a very easy removal!
Monday night, we went to Jon's softball game. My sweet friend Eryn and her daughter Evie were there as well to watch their husband/dad and we all ended up in the dugout because it starting pouring down rain right as the game started. They finally called it and we all went to dinner. Nathan absolutely adores Evie. They had the best time impersonating the Count from Sesame Street and it was great that they were entertaining each other because that meant all the adults could actually visit over dinner.
My wonderful grandmother came in town yesterday which means that the birthday celebration week has begun! We drove over to Gammy's house to see "Memaw" or Nama, as the rest of us call her this morning right after Nathan woke up, so he got to eat a very healthy breakfast of a chocolate chip granola bar in the car.
We went birthday party shopping and then out to eat at Firehouse Subs for lunch. Nathan cheesed for me in his "fwierfwiwer" (firefighter) hat.
He's a mess. ;)
My beautiful mother and grandmother. I am blessed to have these women in my life!!
So excited about this weekend. After this last month, we are very grateful and blessed to look forward to a fun-filled week celebrating our sweet little boy.
We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed...so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed... Therefore, we do not lose heart.
