I'm Here.

I am sorry that I have been MIA, I have been healing and recovering. Today is supposedly my last day of pelvic rest, it will be nice to be able to do things again, but the pain is coming back, not as intense as before but it is coming back. I really don't want to go through the pain again during the holidays, but if I have to I have to. Also since starting the new BC, I am all out of whack and feel down right cruddy and have been so crabby and Sven has gotten the grunt of it, so sorry sweetie!

We are driving to Chicago on Thursday for Thanksgiving. I am really excited. What I am really excited about is seeing my good friend Julie, her husband Ramsay and her little girl Cassidy! I have not met Cassidy yet, but I know I love her. Auntie Beckie is coming!

How can you not fall in love with her?

Free Dunkin Donuts Coffee!

Free Dunkin Donuts Coffee

Free Samples of Dunkin Donuts Coffee

This is good for a 1.1 oz sample pouch of Dunkin Donuts coffee. Other than Mcdonalds coffee this is personally one of my favorites.

I am not much of a coffee drinker but LOVE Dunkin Donuts Coffee!

I went and saw my doctor for my post operation appointment.

She looked at my incisions (both of them) and they look great. They are healing well.

She went over the results of the surgery with me. She told Sven all this and he told me what she said and I remember some things, but some things I don't.

She said everything looked great, she even said I have fantastic looking falopian tubes, what does that mean!?

What she did find was purely accidental and she took care of it on the spot, she does not believe that it was related to the pain I was experiencing, which again disappoints me. She thinks it might be related to my condition, just what I need, my condition causing me more problems and pain. She does have another patient that has neurological issues like me and was having pelvic pain like me (not sure it was exactly pelvic pain, but let's go with it) and what has helped her is changing her birth control and making it stronger, so that is what she is doing with me.

So, I am going to start the new birth control tonight and see her again in two months, so maybe this will help.

It's over!

My surgery went well and I am home recovering. Thank you everyone for your calls, texts and emails, they were really appreciated!

My doctor did not find anything major, which is disappointing, but she did find some minor things and Sven and I are meeting with her on Monday to see what the next step is.

I am hurting right now, but that comes with the territory, but I am in great spirits!

The RJ's turn TWO!

Today is mine and Sven's Second Anniversary. Our wedding was beautiful and everything we wanted, we were surrounded by friends and family.

Sven was handsome and I of course was beautiful :) Sven's groomsmen were dashing and my girls were gorgeous. They are seriously the most amazing girls I know, I couldn't have gotten throughout the day without them. I wish I lived closer to the me because they are so incredible and I love them all so much!

Funny story. As the doors opened for me to walk down the aisle, I looked for Sven and didn't see him, I saw the Best Man, I thought I was marrying the Best Man. I even turned to my dad and asked him where Sven was. Since I couldn't see Sven, I wanted to get down the aisle and find him, so I think I drug my dad down the aisle. My dad kept telling me to slow down. I finally found Sven at the end of the aisle, I was so nervous, Sven says I was vibrating the whole ceremony!

Here are some pictures to enjoy: Just to warn you, there are alot:

Six Years!

Today is Sven's and mine's sixth anniversary. We met six years ago in 2002 when he tagged along with some friends from St. Louis to my Halloween party in Chicago. We got along so good the whole weekend, the rest is history.

Here is our first picture together:

Aren't we cute? The Future Mr. and Mrs. Sven.
