Fruit, flowers, or appliances

That's what you're supposed to give each other for your 4th wedding anniversary. Odd. Time's really flying though, I can't believe it's been this long. In May we'll have been together for 7 years. We dated a year and a half before we got engaged, then our engagement was a year and a half. At this time 4 years ago I was on my way to the church for pictures. Our wedding was at 5, a time I highly recommend because on your wedding day there just isn't enough time to get it all done. Yet somehow it still turned out perfectly.

We were supposed to be almost to Wilmington, NC right now. We're supposed to be staying in this fabulous rental house I found with a koi pond and a huge veranda and they allow pets so the pugs were psyched. But my uterus has been acting up again. I may need another d&c. The bleeding is off and on but when it's on I can't leave the house it's so bad. I literally can not keep up with it. I just want them to rip all those parts right out of me. They already told me nothing works for baby making anyway so why do I need it? And it's all causing me nothing but problems. And now my stupid uterus is making me miss the trip I've been looking forward to since I booked it last summer. Not to mention the $200 deposit we'll lose. Nice. But Jon's scared to take me too far away from my Dr. and I understand that. I don't want to force him to vacation and watch him worry himself sick for 4 days.

To try and make up for it he's taking me shopping and to dinner and he said we can even see all those girlie movies he hates. Mr. Safety Man loves me and that's why I'm home, but I can't help but be sad. I wanted this anniversary to be special. We've been through so much the last year.

Ah well, there's always next year. And next year come hell or high water we'll be in Vegas!

Oh, Shannon ... I am so sorry to hear that!!! I wish that you didn't have to go through all of that rough stuff. :( And to miss your vacation ... but at least you will be able to do some fun stuff together. Being together is really what matters! Vegas is definitely something to look forward to. I hope that you get doing better soon! (hugs)

Awww... that is awful! Wish you two could celebrate your anniversary like you wanted. At least you have a loving husband who will help you through everything.

Maybe you guys could have a post-anniversary getaway!
