Hi Rachel, You will definitely be in my prayers! Wow there is a lot going on and a lot to think about and pray about. God will give you peace concerning your decision.  Move forward in the direction you feel He is leading and ask him to close the door if that is not His best for you and that is all you can do and all He asks us to do.  Stay cool this summer and enjoy your adorable kids.  Congratulations on baby 'Feather'...love it!

Dear Rachel, I am Debbie Thompson's Mom, a good friend of Jeannie's.  I have followed you and prayed for you in the past.   Bless you for all the research you have done, that is so responsible of you. I wanted to share my own experience with you.  First of all I am 74 years old, I had a complete hysterectomy (incl. my overies) when I was 22.  I have never had any problems from it, and was so glad I did it.  Emotionally it was harder due to the hormone change.  So I have no right to give you an opinion, but would just think about having the surgery maybe 6 months after you have Little Feather.  Maybe you will feel the risk is too great to wait, then bless your heart, do what the Lord impresses on you.  But don't be afraid of the surgery.  I so admire your heart and faith, you must make God smile!  Sorry it has been such a struggle.  Thanks for listening to me, I will be praying for you.    Connie

Hi Sister! Wow.  I'm so proud of you (not that I am anyone to be proud of YOU!).  You have a tremendous courage and fire in you, girl!  The good Lord put it there, of course, and He will continue to fortify and strengthen you and your precious family. I'm so glad your pregnancy is going well and that you are feeling great! And another boy?  Perfect! So happy for you guys!

So glad the worst is behind you.  I had a complete hysterectomy  when  I was 22.  It is not as bad as you think.  I was never sorry, hormones do the job very well.  Just think no monthly inconvenience.  I love getting your updates.  You maybe are wondering who I am .   My daughter is Debbie Thompson, a long time friend of Jeannie. You are a hero! God Bless you and your wonderful family. Connie

Rach ~ I am sorry I got busy with "life" and forgot about your surgery date. Thank you for the update, I would be lost without your dedication to this site.  I am sorry to hear that you are again in pain....what a year.  One day soon you will be done with all of this and just be able to enjoy your babies and with new boobies. I Love You.
