Pregnancy #1 m/c
Just wanted to let everyone know
yesterday we lost the baby.. I miscarried while in the hospital.. My
12 year old daughter said "it's better to have loved for a moment
than to have never loved at all". She was 10 and we had started an
adoption of a 1 month old baby girl, and at the last moment the
parents changed their mind.. We are all doing okayI know the Lord
knows what is best and we have faith that will get us through this
loss..It is about being faithful to him in all things, and we trust
him with all our hearts..
Kristi and family
After a long journey of a double
reversal we built our own home.. Now we are moved in and
relaxed and we are pleased to announce that we are now expecting our
first Double Reversal Baby. (Kip had vasectomy
reversal, Kristi had tubal reversal). EDD: Sept 11, 2007..
God has blessed us and thanks to
Dr. Perez for his love for God and his great work! We have a
very happy family right now.. My husband did not believe it until we
got the blood work back and the midwife told him herself.. Now he
can't stop smiling. We look forward to this pregnancy and the
blessings ahead of us..

Kip's Vr~ March 17,2005
Kip has his Vas Reversal on March
17, 2005. It went very well and he later tested and is normal.
We are pleased with the Lord's Blessings of us both being back to
the way he made us.
I had my HSG on 9-19-05. My
left tube flowed fast and the right was slow to spill. We give
God praise for all he does.

Kip's Vr~ March 17,2005
We want to start out by saying Praise the Lord! We started our
journey on Valentine's Day at 6:00 a.m. in Whitefish, Montana. As we
left our four children with loving friends, we were on our way...
There were so many emotions as we drove almost 3,000 miles to
McAllen, Texas. When we arrived we called Dr. Levi to be sure of the
time.. He said it was still on for the next morning and to come on
in.. We called the cab and to Rio Bravo we went.. When we arrived in
Mexico and noticed how cute the Hospital was.. When we got to our
room we were very surprised.. It was like a motel room, very clean
and cozy.. Dr. Levi came in shortly after we arrived and right away
Kip and him got along great!! Kip is not the type of person that it
takes a while to get to talk to them, but not with Dr. Levi, it was
like his long lost friend :). After we finished paper work and
visiting we went to sleep..
In the morning the nurse woke me up and put my I.V. in with out any
problems.. Most nurses can't find my vein and stick me like a human
pin cushion.. I was pleased at how kind they all were.. Then they
took me into the operating room.. I felt it best my husband did not
go in with me since he can't handle pain and may have hurt the Dr.'s
ha ha .. Kip said that when I was wheeled out they brought him a
wonderful breakfast within a few min after I left.. When I was in
operation room I had a few min to look and observe the Cross above
the door and the clean sterile packaged instruments.. They rubbed
something on my back and I was out, no pain... I did wake up during
the surgery holding Dr. Levi's hand.
When I woke up back in the room Kip was there to greet me with a
warm hug and kiss.. Dr. Levi came in and was telling Kip how it all
went.. He said that I had a tube attached to stomach wall. Kip asked
if that would cause pain, he said yes very much pain.. That is the
answer to the extreme pain I had been experiencing for 2 years..
What a blessing they fixed it! I was very out of it and feeling GOOD
and only heard a little!! When I needed a nurse Kip got on the phone
then handed to me, before he could sit back down they were in the
room.. They were wonderful! It is funny, I know a little Spanish,
yet it seemed like I was talking to them like it was in English, it
all came back to me.. My biggest fear was the catheter, yet I didn't
even know it was in.. When they took it out, I went to get up, and
Kip was there to help, I had to lay back down, did not work yet.. My
feet were still numb..
Dr. Levi came in the to check on me and and asked Kip if he needed
anything, well he needed a Mountain Dew!!! Ha ha ha.. So off he and
Dr. Levi went to the store.. They came back and had got me Mexican
candy :) and Kip had me taste the Mountain Dew, it was different
than the stuff here, it was better actually.. We left the next day
and went shopping in Mexico and had a blast! We got so much for the
kids and our friends we couldn't hold it all! I over did it yet it
was still fun.. On our way back home, we stopped in El Paso Texas to
visit with friends for 2 days.. It was a good time to catch up and
also to recoup for the long travel home.. We seen a lot of neat
things on the trip and really enjoyed the heat :). Once we hit
Montana we were in the middle of a snow storm, and there were
trucks, trailers, and vans in the snow ditches.. We saw a lot of car
wrecks, and yet the Lord kept us safe.. When we arrived home we
surprised the children early.. It was great.. The warm welcoming and
love we shared was priceless.. Our 2 week journey was at an end..
We are home.. Dr. Levi and Dr. Perez really know and love what they
do.. The Lord sure works through them.. After being treated so well
in that Hospital, we dread the idea of ever going to a hospital in
the states again..
Blessings to all, Kip and Kristi McKessick
(Montana to Rio Bravo) almost 6,000 miles round trip.
