Have some things to do, be back when I have time

I'm not going to have lot of time to spend here in the blogs the next couple of weeks. From being bored, my personal life is suddenly very full.

First, I had a date! Last Friday, a week that was lousy both at work and here, I stopped off at the hotel bar around the corner. I had every intention of getting a bit hammered and feeling sorry for myself. A man came in and sat beside me (beautiful!) and we struck up a conversation. After a couple of shots and beers, he invited me to join him for dinner. We talked until he had to leave to catch his flight home, but he promised to call me when he was in town this week (uh-huh ... heard that one before).

But he called! He works here but lives in Chicago. We went out to dinner again tonight, and talked and talked ... then he packed me in a cab and sent me home. I may have to get a little more aggressive ... but for right now, things are good. Amber, you should be proud of me. Kelli's taking it slow for once!

Second, my friend W is flying in and we're going to go backpacking in the high country for a few days. You can't imagine how happy this makes me.

Third, my parents are coming home. Both of my parents turn 60 this year, and for their birthday presents I gave them each a voucher for a round-trip to Europe. Both of them are second generation immigrants, but neither had ever been to Europe. They went to Ireland, then across England and France, through Switzerland to Italy. They've been gone for 7 weeks, and I'll pick them up at the airport later this week.

And fourth, next week, hopefully after my mom gets over her jet lag, I'm going into the hospital for minor surgery.

Long time readers will remember that I've mentioned being stupid when I was 16. I had unprotected sex and contracted gonorrhea. To make it worse, I was afraid to tell my mom when I started feeling lousy, and eventually also developed a major case of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). Eventually I ended up in the hospital with tubes in my arms while they shotgunned me with antibiotic cocktails. The result of this is fallopian tubes that are so damaged that doctors have always told me it would be dangerous to get pregnant. The chances of an ectopic pregnancy are high.

So I've been playing pregnancy roulette for the past 15 years. With the exception of one year when I was celibate while going through my divorce, I have been on the pill the whole time. That is not a good situation, and has possible long-term health risks. In addition to the pill, I have always used condoms and sometimes foam or a diaphragm because I'm so paranoid of pregnancy.

Mom and I have been discussing this since last spring Trip to the gynecologist. In spite of the fact she wants a grand child in the worst way, she has recommended that I get my tubes tied. Having her backing on this is a huge relief. I have been thinking of this for awhile, but was concerned about what my parents would think.

So, next week she's going to do the deed, and I'll be able to get off the pill and figure out what my natural cycle is, and get acquainted with my own hormones. I'll probably be pretty sore for awhile, and not terribly amorous, but should be back at work week after next.

Before people ask the obvious questions, I have always wanted to be a mother, but I don't feel any loss in the idea of not being able to conceive and bear a child. There are so many children who go to bed every night praying that someone will take them home and love them. Someday I'll answer one of their prayers.

Everyone be nice to each other while I'm gone.

Have a great time k, and when you do have your surgery, go to your local pharmacy and ask for Arnica in 200K (homeopahtic remedies). Take that just before your surgery and then Arnica in 6ch after the surgery. This will help the healing process immensely. Kisses, and we'll try to be nice....

That's what life is all about - not straight forward, but full of twists and turns, not easy to say why and for what purpose. The way you take it - straight on, dealing with challenges and pleasures as they come (and why not fast at times) . . . inspiring not just for your reader friends, but those that have the benefit, privilege and pleasure to be with you in real time . . . and you inspired by them . . . and at times by us.

Go on, enjoy all the many truly enjoyable opportunities you have coming up - and thus get the strength for those difficult decisions. You have what it takes to make the best of them!

And we count ourselves blessed to know you.

I am glad to see that things are looking better for you in the "love" department. You certainly deserve it. As for your surgery, well, I wish you a speedy and healthy recovery. The last paragraph touched me here most. YOu are so right. THere are so many wonderful children all over the owrld that dont understand why they have no parents, why are they alone, why doesn't anybody want them. Makes me jsut want to cry.

You would be the best Mom in the world for one(or more) of these children. I will be on vacation until 13th of August. Hope to see you back by then. Take care Kelli, have fun, STAY SAFE!

Love and kisses

It's crazy how you get to know someone through their blogs. You're so open.

I admire your approach to a difficult situation. Your ability to see the bright side in all of this is such a beautiful thing. You're A-okay in my book, Kelli. I respect you a lot.

Hope everything goes well. Take care of yourself and come back as soon as you can. I'll miss you while your gone.

Emotional responses, rather than coherent ones....

Envy.

Glad you're going to get to do something you're are so looking forward to. Tell her Hi! for us.

Impressed. Nice present...

Concern. Not terribly, but any surgical procedure is cause for at least minor worry. At least you're in good hands. Glad that you'll be in a better place emotionally once it's over.

there are literally thousands of orphaned children in South Africa, thanks to their parents dying of AIDS. i know a couple who live round the corner from me; the first son they adopted is my daughter's playmate, and they just adopted another baby girl (i guess she'll be my 2nd daughter's playmate) ... it really is a fantastic way of creating a family for those who don't have the luxury of the usual methods.

good luck with the op. i'm sure it'll all go well!

Wow Kelli, your post brought tears to my eyes. It sounds like you're going to have a VERY busy couple of weeks. You take care of yourself and if you need anything, I'm sure there are tons of people here (myself included) who would bend over backwards to try and help.

Big hugs and gentle kisses to you

You're going to miss me. I mean - me your going to miss. No. Wait! That can't be right. Well, not "right" in a moral sense, cause of course there's nothing immoral about missing me, just like losing one itty bitty double decker P&B sandwich in the silk bed sheets is not a moral failing, nefariously claimed by an ex of mine and, and -- what was I saying. Missing. You. Right. Well sure. But I guess it's rather important that you take care of the self. I guess. So! Take care of yourself then. What are you waiting for?
Nattering at you always.

Good luck, ma'am. Have a great time hiking, also.

Second, my friend W is flying in and we're going to go backpacking in the high country for a few days.

This made me smile because, although I understand you were being politely discreet in not revealing W's name, it reminds me of one of my favorite comedic lines, in this case from an essay written by Woody Allen, in the style of some Czech intellectual's diary.

The entry in question read: "11 July 1974 - I am seized by a dilemma; should I marry M___? Not if she won't tell me the other letters in her name."


rm_kelli4u2dew replies on 7/28/2006 11:12 am:
Yeah, good advice. I don't think I'll marry W until I find out her real name. Thanks!

Kelli, TY for sharing your very personal story...I never realized how close my own post was to your situation in some way...God bless you for thinking of adoption...I adopted both my children...I wish to do more but two adoptions early this year fell thru...the one case the baby son died 24 hours after his mother died...she had cancer and baby was too weak to survive...the other 3 siblings were adopted by their Aunt after I offered to adopt all 3...in some ways I am glad they still have blood family...both parents of the children died in a car crash.

Your post hit me really hard. I've been fine with things, have thought about it a little, but I've been reconciled to never having a baby of my own for a long time. I just broke down and cried when I read your post. I guess I need to go through the grief after all.

Bless you for adopting. I send money to an orphanage in Russia every month, and visited them last spring (another series of posts). It just breaks your heart. When I'm in a situation when I can give a child a stable home and a father, I will adopt. Hugs to you for having such an open heart. {=}

Kelli, TY for responding and I know your sadness more than you'll ever know...I wish I could give you a hug and I know God has a master plan for you as he did with me...My BF says I am the original "old woman in the shoe" with loads of kids...he feels God will use me somehow in regards children...If that is the case I am here...God!!! I so love children...My one post "My first true love" is about my son... and the two children I am blessed with are the most precious gifts I have been given which I wrote about "Your baby became my baby" a story about adoption and my tribute to birth mothers. Sorry for the long response...
When You ended your comment to me "Sis" my heart cried for it means a lot to me to know someone else knows what I am going thru...God bless you Sweetie and your mother and the children you will have in the future...
