Another Fork in the Road

This afternoon I have an appointment with the NaPro doctor. He will review my progress over the past 6 months and make a recommendation. I'm rather nervous that he may prescribe some more painful remedies. The nice thing about a doctor like him is that he really cares. I know we can be up front with him about our adoption endeavors.

I made this bracelet to wear for my doctor appointments, blood tests, etc. It has medals of various saints who intercede for infertility: St. Collette (legend says her parents were 50 when they gave birth to her!), St. Gerard, St. Gianna (touched to her relics), and St. Therese (not necessarily an infertility saint, but one of my favorites). The bracelet is the equivalent of bringing a heavenly posse into daunting doctors' offices! :)

I made a similar bracelet for Grace In My Heart, except with saints that were special to her: St. Patrick (E's middle name), St. Ann, St. Joseph.

So I'll post an update today or tomorrow with the results from the doctor. Thank God we have a Trader Joe's run planned after the appointment!!

I pray for all the best for you.

Love the braclet! St. Colette was chosen as my patron saint for 2010. I've enjoyed reading about her.

I hope your appointment went well and that you got some clear direction as to where to go fertility-wise. Looking forward to hearing what he had to say. It is such a blessing to have good and caring doctors. I love the bracelet you made for doctor's appointments - what a great idea! We all need prayer warriors for those daunting appointments!
