Surgery Scheduled/ Updates

Just wanted you all to know I've been scheduled for my surgery on December 30th. If you don't already know the story, after my son Jaidyn was born I elected to have a tubal ligation. I've already had 4 babies in my short life time and my body just has a hard time keeping the sweet little ones in until they're ready to be born. So, after much prayer and careful consideration I had my tubal ligation right after Jaidyn's birth. Well, apparently it failed somehow leaving an opening or regrowth occurred over the years. The only way it came to my attention is in the past year I've suffered 3 miscarriages due to potential tubal pregnancies. In order to prevent further suffering and potential health issues dealing with that, I decided to have the tubal ligation re-done.
It's been a long hard road for me full of bumps and deep canyons to overcome but my faith in my Heavenly Father has only grown. These trials although unexpected (are they ever expected?) have given me a very strong appreciation for those who have suffered loss in such a way. I'm very grateful for the children I have been able to bring to this earth... The first two with such a wonderful family and I'm so proud of them. I know I did the right thing at that time. I'm especially grateful I have been blessed with two sweet children of my own. I love motherhood and am so grateful for all that I have and at the same time look forward to learning more and growing with my children by my side.
I'm grateful for a wonderful supportive husband. He's an amazing father and husband and we've also grown closer through our trials.
I'm also grateful for you reading this as well as being my friend...
