Confession: We filmed this video in the parking lot of our REI’s office. We pressed record and started regurgitating everything we just heard. As soon as we stopped the video, we were tempted to erase and re-record a more sugar-coated version of what just happened. We talked about it and came to the conclusion that, if you’re reading this right now, you have “signed up” to come on this journey with us. That includes the good, the bad, the scary, the sticky, the “TMI”s, and the “what-if”s. So we aren’t going to sugar-coat it …that meeting was scary! We were not expecting for the words “brain” and “tumor” to even be brought up in our test results. This whole time I’ve been researching words like “ovaries”, “AMH”, “TSH”, “progesterone”, “uterus”, “endometriosis”, “hysterosalpingogram”- but “brain” and “tumor” were the farthest from my radar – a definite CURVEBALL!
Well after the shock wore off, we researched it and if it is a benign tumor in my pituitary gland, it’s not life threatening or going to keep us from getting pregnant but still- no thank you!! I don’t want to take pills for 6 months to a year! Thanks for the prayers!! I am scheduled for my MRI next week. Please keep the prayers coming!
