Hello, I am Melissa Lee and my story begins like so many others...I was married to a total LOSER in 90 and divorced with a tubal sterilization in 94. I was alone raising two boys and knowing that any man I had in my life would have to just accept the fact that I would only be able to give them my two lovely boys as children only...
I met my husband on third shift at the hospital I was working at. He arrived with a object lodged in his ear from work. I was a third shift admissions clerk and was instantly stricken with a sense of "this is the man I will spend the rest of my life with". Needless to say exactly 4 months later we were married and I had had my tubes tied for over 3 years and he was fine with the idea of that. My boys loved him and he loved them. 5 years into our marriage, my ex-husband started giving us grief over the boys and a single comment made our dreams a reality. He said to my husband,"enjoy my boys, because YOU will never have kids with her, I FIXED her and that is that!!". My husband had never even thought of the boys as his step-sons, just his boys. NOW the reality was my ex-husband was the Father and he was Daddy. We then decided then and there that we wanted more children. I was in contact with my OB/GYN the next day and he ordered a Hystoscope and Lap done on me and a D&C for good measures. He then announced to the whole surgery team that Melissa would be becoming pregnant soon that she is now a TOTAL woman again...I cried and needless to say so did my husband. He just kept saying we are going to have a baby, we are going to have a baby. Dr. Baker got in touch with Dr. Levin's office and then called me and said call this number and speak to Venica.
When I called I spoke to another lady and she just began reeling off so many instructions...I said wait a minute...what is the cost?....She said did they not tell you? I said no, but I would love to know. She said $6,500.00. I said, "REALLY" that is it? she said is that bad? I said no, it was wonderful..I sent in the money that next day, had the consult a week later and then next week had my Reversal. ON DECEMBER 3, 2001, I drove with my RN mother to the Inn and checked in and the next day drove over to the Jewish Hospital, had labs, nessessaries, and surgery. Was drove back to the Inn by bus and put to bed and the next day was seen by Dr. Levin and Venica in the Inn room. I was told instructions for wound care and things to do while I was healing..
I went home rested for two days and began "baby dancing". I was pregnant in 4 months and by December 27th, 2002 gave birth to my first tubal reversal baby. Seth Grayson Lee. He has been the best thing $6,000.00 could possibly buy. I then had gall bladder surgery and my surgeon said that if I intended to have another baby, do it soon. I had a lot of scar tissue and it did not look good to wait to long. So in a 4 week period I became pregnant with my second tubal reversal baby. Seth was just 9 months old. I gave birth to Ross Braydn Lee on July 6th, 2004. YES, Seth is two days after Christmas and Ross is 2 days after the 4th of July. I was a busy woman. Now I have two of the most wonderful little boys and my older sons love their little brothers. Haydn is 13 and Brody is 11. So our family is complete.
It took the advise of my beloved OB/GYN, the skilled hands of Dr. Levin and the Love of my Heavenly Father to make the Lee Family a Fact not Dream...To all trying , good luck and to those looking into this...GO FOR IT!!!! God's love to all ...
Melissa Lee
