Fertility ******

Rafe and I will be trying to get pregnant during this short window home. I'm asking for everyone's prayers as this is a really long shot. During the surgery last year, they had to cut out one fallopian tube.

I saw a fertility specialist on Wednesday who told me that I needed "luck" to get pregnant. I have between a .5% and a 1% chance of getting pregnant again. Not good odds. He is treating me as a medical oddity and to be honest, tells me the only reason I am still his patient is that my body reacts to fertility meds like a much younger woman and he's curious what will happen. He is definitely not a "false hope" kind of guy.

We would love to have the noise and laughter of more children in this house, and I ask for your prayers that we are able to conceive a healthy child.
