I Feel Like This Blog is Getting Depressing...

I have been avoiding writing a blog post since Thursday night. I don't know why, I really don't want my blog to be a depressing saga of our lives. But, seriously life has been throwing us under the bus lately. I would hate to come on here and post cute pictures of Bradley and act like we are all hunky dory, when that just isn't the case. Chris and I are trying our best to stay positive in the mist of all of this, but we are truly being tested.

First, I am sure that many of your read my sister's blog Bytes of Memory...well my sweet nephew Sammy

was in a car accident this past weekend with my parents. My sister did a much longer and more detailed post about the crash that I won't get into. But, everyone is fine thanks to my Dad's quick thinking and driving skills. They went to see their car on Monday, and it is totaled. It is amazing that everyone is ok from the accident. My parents and Sammy had some soreness this week, but everyone is hanging in there.

Aside from that, everything else we have been going through seems like such a small situation. The contract on our home feel through on Thursday evening. So, we won't be moving and we spent a majority of the weekend unpacking and cleaning up the house. We will hopefully have the house back on the market later this week once we are ready for showings again. It doesn't seem like anything to even worry about after the car accident, but it is/was upsetting to say the least.

Lastly, after a consultation with the fertility specialist I finally have been given a diagnosis for my infertility. They believe that I have endometriosis, and I will be having surgery at the end of the month to try and heal as much of the problem as they can. Hopefully after the surgery our chances to conceive will greatly increase. What a journey this has been. I have felt deep down inside, even last summer, that something was really wrong with me. I am partly happy and sad to finally have some answers and to be moving in the right direction. I am hopeful and nervous. Chris has been amazing through all of this, and it has brought us even closer together.

They say bad things happen in threes. Hopefully we are done and good times are headed our way!!!

Bad things always seem to come at once :(
I am so glad all are OK from the car accident--that must have been scary to see the car!
The house will sell--my husband has had a few contracts fizzle out with his clients recently too--it just sucks for all involved :(
I know the surgery will help you--then we can hear all your happy preggo posts :)

That really stinks about the house falling through...I hope you find the perfect buyers.

I'm glad everybody is okay after the accident.

And, hopefully, the surgery and recent diagnosis help bring little B a baby brother or sister.

Sending prayers your way...times like this can drain you. Glad you have a great support system.
As for the endo surgery, it's not bad. You'll do fine, but make sure they tell you about the gas pains after under the shoulder blades (sounds weird I know, but make sure you ask!). It is good to get some answers along the way. Best of luck...hang in there. Know we are praying for you.
