Well, this wasn't supposed to be a blog about me, but I did want to share this. The good news is that we finally found a good NaProTechnology Medical Consultant in our state trained in the Creighton Fertility Method. He called me tonight, asked me a lot of questions, gave me some good advice, and told me he can help treat my endometriosis without using birth control or Lupron and try to help us treat the infertility without using any technologies to try to concieve a child outside of the marriage act, which was a BIG concern to us (As much as we want children, we never want to do anything that will offend God or cause us to lose Heaven.) We have a tentative appointment on August 1st.
The not so good news though is that he told me straight out that his oldest patient with endometriosis who was able to have children was 39 and he recommended getting rid of Ed's cat due to my allergies and asthma! Ed is pretty fond of that cat. It is his buddy. Poor Ed!
<----will be 42 on August 2nd so I guess our dream of someday having a child of our own is fading fast and we will need to look more into adoption or foster care (We've already attended a meeting at Catholic Charities, but it is quite expensive to adopt and they said you have to be married for three years!)
I am feeling very hopeful that this doctor can help us treat the endometriosis because it's pretty painful and over the counter meds like Midol do not help very much!
If you could pray that this doctor will be able to help us and acceptance of God's will for us, we would really appreciate it. Thanks!
P.S. Even though the doctor told us the chances of us being able to have our own child are pretty slim, I'm still going to continue praying the rosary, to St. Anne, St. Gianna, ect. for a miracle! Remember, NOTHING is impossible with God - He CAN do anything!
