I know there are going to be times when it seems like everything is out of control and I have to keep reminding myself that I am not in control, God is. This is very hard for me and I know this is a major part of me that God is working on. God has revealed so many things to me throughout this journey. At the Coffee House this Sunday Marcus made a statement that if God would show us the entire picture right from the beginning we most likely would not follow that path. If I knew from the beginning what I was going to have to go through these past two years to get to where I am now, I am pretty sure I would have said "no thank you". But He doesn't do this, He gently guides us through each step of our lives comforting us and hopefully we grow and become closer to him along the way.
A praise for today: Marcus went to the doctor today to get his results from the CT Scan and everything came back clear!!!! The tumor has not come back! I know he is relieved to have this past him.

This is for all the husband's and wife's that are dealing with infertility. This week is National Infertility Awareness Week. I read a quote today "to get through the hardest journey we need to take only one step at a time, but we must keep on stepping!" Here's to one step at a time until we get our little miracle!

I know last week I wanted to start to be able to begin my cycle and now I need Aunt Flo to go away. I have a gyno appointment tomorrow that I have to go to, to again meet a deadline for my Reproductive Endocrinologist. She is very demanding of my body to do certain things at specific times! I started on birth control today and I am hoping that will make me stop by tomorrow afternoon. Hopefully I will be able to get everything done tomorrow to check another thing off my list.
Another blessing along this crazy journey! I have already had to miss a lot of work up to this point and I don't think every employer would put up with all these days off. It's also just the beginning of the cycle. When I get further along in my cycle, there is a possibility that I will have to go to the doctor everyday to get checked out. The blessing is I work for a family business and my dad is my boss! I don't know what I would do if I had any other job???? It seems like Marcus and I both are in the perfect job at the perfect time! This is another example if God guiding us through this journey! I know there will be more blessings along this journey and I just want to continue my Song of Praise and thank God for what he is doing in our life!

Marcus and I are truly thankful and I don't even know where to begin with all the blessings we have experienced along this journey. The meds alone for this treatment usually cost a fortune, but we have been blessed and they are only going to cost us a third of the price. My doctor is also giving us (yes I said givng us, as in free!!) one of the most expensive drugs, because our insurance isn't covering any of our drugs or treatment. The treatment cost, where do I begin????? That alone is a huge blessing, it will not be as hard on us as we initially thought. I am just so thankful for the many blessing along this crazy journey!!!!

I am trying very hard lately to work on my positive outlook and to reduce my stress level because I know that is the best thing for me to do at this point to give us a positive pregnancy result. So if any of you have any suggestion of relaxation techniques I am open to trying whatever will help!!!! I don't feel stressed out but I know deep down I am letting it bother me because I have never had a problem with acne but lately I have had a problem with breakouts and I know it is because of stress. I know I need to get back to yoga but I just can't seem to find the time.
On another note, Marcus is due for his first yearly check up to make sure the tumor that he had hasn't come back. The doctor told us that the type of tumor he had, had a high percentage of coming back. So every year he is going to have to have a CT Scan to check everything out. He has an appointment at the end of the month for all of this. Please just pray for him, because I know this is not easy to go through.
