Where to begin. I am not a blogger or a writer. I love math and never excelled in my writing skills, but for some reason feel compelled to start this blog. Please forgive my lack of writing skills. I don’t know the outcome as we are only a few days in on our journey, but feel that one day God will use this blog to speak to others who go through the same thing.
Colby and I met in September 2009 and married in April 2011. It has been the most wonderful journey and in 2 days we celebrate out 1 year anniversary. I can honestly say it’s been the best year of my life. I can’t imagine it any other way. However, it is hard to celebrate when all I want to do is mourn…
We felt like the Lord had put it on our hearts to start having kids (February 2012). Around the same time, I went up for an annual gyno visit and after many appts and an MRI I found out that I had a benign tumor on my pituitary gland. Thankfully it is benign and treatable with medicine. One week after we had been dealing with my medical issues Colby had a SA (Sperm Analysis) done. We went ahead and did this because when he was 21 he had testicular cancer. Thankfully, no radiation or chemo treatment was needed at the time and God healed him, but regardless of his cancer we received bad news. Much to our shock, I received a call that his SA test came back with no sperm.
And so begins the journey of battling infertility….
