  • Another connection needed: Nancy has been going through hellish surgery after hellish surgery to get her uterus into shape simply to start trying. She is looking to connect with others who have either (1) had multiple surgeries for endo or (2) are also waiting for the chance to try. She writes at The New Life of Nancy: "my third uterine surgery failed. It failed to get my oven in shape to receive any buns for baking. It's still on the fritz. The first one wasn't actually for ~this~ problem. It was an endo lap, so I shouldn't count it. The second surgery was the one that tried to fix the inside of the uterus. Since I went with my OB instead of my RE, I was able to rationalize the failure with the fact I didn't go with the "expert". I figured I made a bad decision and was paying for it by having to endure a third surgery. But when that 3rd surgery failed - the surgery performed by the expert - well, that one got to me. This is the last chance to get my oven in working condition. They are not going around the sides anymore, they are just going to try to "snip" it out. The amount of scar tissue being built from the surgeries alone is going to start damaging the oven to where it's unrepairable. This is my final service call. This is it." Not only should you go over to give her support, but if you also are in the same boat, let her know.
  • Calling all Bloggers in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex: "I would like to get together all the bloggers in the area to meet. So if anyone would like to join and get more info they can email me @ or comment on my blog"
