I wanted to update my story!
We had our first reversal blessing on March 23, 2008
First I must say I am extremely
thankful to be adding my own testimony to this site. If it had not
been for the other testimonies I know that I would never have felt
the peace that I had during my trip.
Our trip started on Wednesday morning, we rented a car and headed
out. We drove from Las Vegas, Nevada. It was a very long
trip and we drove straight through. Thursday afternoon came and we
called Marcos to arrange pickup. My appointment was for Friday and
he said he could pick us up early and we could have the surgery
Thursday evening if we wanted. After waiting 6 years I was
very ready to have it done.
Marcos came to pick us up at around 6:00 and we drove across the
border. We had no trouble getting in at all. The scenery from Texas
to Mexico really was not that different, it actually looked very
much the same. I was not frightened at all. God truly gave me a
sense of peace that passes all understanding because I am a worry
wart by nature and worry about getting a tooth filled at the dentist
but had no fear at all.
We walked into the hospital and I was struck by how clean it looked
and smelled. It was hot and muggy outside but very cool and
refreshing inside the hospital. We walked down the corridor and
signed the paperwork. The nurses led me and hubby to our room. We
were in room 3 and it was even cooler inside the room. I was given a
gown to change into and after I changed a nurse came in to put in
the IV. She had difficulty trying to find a good vein, I have
very hard to reach ones. What I was impressed by was she did
not poke me until she couldn't get one, she just tried to find one
and when she couldn't she went and got Dr. Levi. He found one
that worked and put in my IV. He was great, I always bruise
when I get an IV and I didn't get one at all. Dr. Levi asked
me medical history and looked at my OP report, he asked if we had
any questions. We asked only a few because I felt like I knew what
to expect having read everyone else's testimony. He gave Joe
some scrubs and to our disappointment they would not fit. My
hubby is a really big guy and because they had not scrubs to fit he
would not be able to go in with me.
At this time I was somewhat nervous, I had anticipated him being
there with me the whole time and now he was not going to be able to.
Dr. Levi took the camera we were going to use and said he would make
sure that the surgery was taped so that he could see it later.
My hubby and I prayed and I again felt such a sense of peace fall
over me that I went in without hubby. I wear glasses so they
had removed them before wheeling me out of the room so my vision was
very blurred (I am blind without my glasses). I prayed the
whole way down to the OR. I was physically unable to see but God was
with me and spiritually saw everything that I could not. I was
unable to see the cross above the door, but I had the Almighty on my
When they went to put the epidural in I asked one more time to let
hubby in because at that time I was a little bit afraid. Dr.
Moreno was very compassionate and loving, he told me very gently
that no hubby could not come in. He told me that everything
was going to be okay and that I would get very sleepy and not
remember anything in a few minutes. I immediately was calmed and
they put in the epidural, it did not hurt at all and the next thing
I remember is music playing in the background and I could feel the
surgery taking place. When I say that I could 'feel' it I don't mean
in a painful or a pressure type of feeling, it was just a sense of
knowing that they were sewing the tubes back together. It was
such a relief to know that I was becoming whole again. I remember
asking if I was being a good patient and they said that I was and
that they were almost finished.
They closed me up, wrapped me up and off we went back to our room.
They gave me antibiotics and pain meds every 8 hours after that.
They took great care of us. The blankets they give you are really
thick and plush nothing like the thin white ones you get here in the
states. I was given 2 blankets and hubby had 1. They brought
breakfast the next morning for both of us and it was wonderful,
lunch was just as great. It was a peaceful quiet time that we
were able to rest and relax. They came in around 1:30 to remove the
catheter and I was able to shower. They re wrapped me and Marcos was
there to take us back to the hotel we were going to rent. I
was sore as is to be expected and we crossed the border again with
no problems. Marcos was extremely helpful and very nice.
The nurses were very nice, Dr. Levi was wonderful, he took time and
never made me feel rushed. He has the best bedside manner I have
ever seen. He is compassionate and answered each question we had.
I do not remember even meeting Dr. Perez but that did not make one
bit of difference to me. God really put in my spirit that I did not
have to see Dr. Perez to know that he had done the job. I did
see him on the tape though later when I watched it.
Dr. Levi gave us a 80-90% chance to have another child, and my tube
lengths are 6-7 on each side. I am 100% completely whole again and
could not have been happier with our experience. Thanks for allowing
me to share my testimony.
