I just had to find time to come back and write about this...
yesterday, at the Resort where I'm staying, I received a package sent from Mexico City to Cancun, from a dear dear friend whom I've never had the pleasure of meeting. I spoke once before about Eloisa (and in the interest of time I cannot link to that post right now, but it is from early May I believe), because Eloisa is a faithful Catholic infertile woman who has a very special devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe- just as most Mexicans, especially those from Mexico City, do. In May she informed me via email (she doesn't have a blog) that her prayer group had "adopted" me and would be praying fervently for my intentions and offering Mass for me at the Basilica during Mary's month. Eloisa is also becoming a FertilityCare Practitioner and will be Mexico's VERY FIRST!
Eloisa knew from my blog that I would be in her country right after surgery. And she sent me the following:
2 posters/replications of the miraculous image of Our Lady as it appears on the famous tilma.
2 booklets on the Apparitions at Tepeyak Hill.
2 prayer cards, blessed by the current priest at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe (a friend of Eloisa's) whose name happens to be Father Juan Diego, after the Saint to whom Our Lady appeared.
A lovely book by an author I cannot remember now, called Spiritual Living in a Secular World (or something to that nature)- I really look forward to reading it!
Another book, in English, all about the Wonder of the Miracle of Guadalupe... I've already read more than half and LOVE it!
2 boxes of ORGANIC MEXICAN CHOCOLATE!!!! OMGOSH, Eloisa, I have never EVER tasted chocolate THIS GOOD in my life!! This is the way chocolate is meant to be!
And finally, a beautiful, heartfelt handwritten letter, in which Eloisa specifies that she aimed to send a care package which would care for my spirit, my heart (chocolate!), and my mind.
My MIL was just so impressed that I have met someone on the computer who is so extremely thoughtful and generous. I told her all of my blogging/online friends are like that :)
I have more to tell you on the surgery front, in particular about what Dr S thought about my ovaries when he first got "in." I will wait until I get home to post that. I'll devote the entire post to my ovaries, I promise.
Speaking of my ovaries, maybe it's a good thing my DH isn't here because I'm ovulating right now. I am not so sure I'd be able to refrain from "trying" even though my post-op notes say NO sexual relations for 3 weeks... maybe God had to divinely intervene to make sure I ABSOLUTELY heal this time ;) But I tell ya, it was odd the past few days with such AWESOME EWCM to not be on a constant quest for sperm... hehehe...
