We have 5 more days to find out if we were a success this month. This is a lonnnng wait! We both want to see a positive by Friday. What a great Christmas that would be! The best Christmas present we could have would be to find out we are expecting!
The tubal reversal surgery was a lot better than expected. It was a success!!!The right side is 3 3/4 and the left side is 3 1/2 (normal length is 10cm - so that is not bad for the type I had done). I started crying when the nurse woke me and told me. I had prepared myself for the bad news and I was so shocked it was a success. Dr. Koulianos was great. He is the kindest, most gentle and caring doctor I have ever seen.
He told us that the danger is the left tube; That one is only partially open. The right tube is completely open. I have a high risk for tubal pregnancy if I conceive from the left side. He told us that we can start trying next week.
Sorry I took so long to post. It was a very painful surgery. I just got to where I could move around without a lot of pain yesterday.
We have our date for the Tubal Reversal! Pre-Op is on November 14th. Reversal is schedule on November 15th. We are both excited and nervous at the same time. Our next big step in our journey is coming so quickly.
Let the countdown begin....

Today is Friday - September 8, 2006. This was the day we consulted with the doctor on Tubal Reversal vs. IVF. We drove 3 hours to Center of Reproductive Medicine in Mobile, Al.
We met with the Dr. and discussed the possibility of tubal reversal. It will be difficult - A major surgery. The chance of success is 25%. He also discussed IVF and gave us a 50% chance of success with that.
After going home and discussing everything - we have decided to try the tubal reversal first. Tanya will call the doctor on Monday and see when it can be scheduled. Now we must wait and Pray!
We are James and Tanya Nored and we are on a special journey. We met as kids while playing football and cheerleading. As we grew up we went on seperate paths in life. Tanya married at the age of 20 and had 3 children. James remained single and started a career in Atlanta. Tanya divorced in 1999 and later reconnected with James. The two were married January 27, 2006 at Eastmont Baptist Church in Montgomery.
James never married or had children of his own. Tanya had a tubal ligation in 1997. Now they have started a new journey in their life. A journey to a miracle. This will not be a easy journey but they with God's help are ready to commit to this.
Tanya is going to have a Tubal Reversal. This will be a complicated and major surgery. The chance of success is only 25%. But this is a chance they are willing to take before the last option of IVF.
They know God is own their side and they have the love and support of their family and friends.
