i'm just sayin'...
i might be MIA for a while. i would like to think i won't, but just in case i am know
that all is well. :)
i am scheduled for surgery tomorrow. i think i've mentioned it here before.
i have to have some parts removed or if you want the correct medical terms,
i am having a hysterectomy. i am having my uterus and fallopian tubes removed and
will still have my ovaries--which means i won't need to worry about hormone replacement.
i clarify this only because when you say "hysterectomy" most people have assumed i am
having the whole SHE-BANG removed!! ;)
i have been dealing with lots of fatigue issues lately and came to find out that enormous amounts
of heavy bleeding is NOT normal!! who knew?
the heavy bleeding is likely due to the presence of a uterine fibroid as well as some ovarian cysts that like to flare up from time to time.
i had other options such as hormone treatment, ablation, etc., but that doesn't guarantee that the fibroid would go away. my mother had the same thing done around my age and i figured it was the best option for me with the family history. ( and it also means no more periods!!! yippee!!!! )
God has given me much peace leading up to this...i am extremely grateful.
also, i have known for the past 12 years that i am DONE having children!
i'm still young, but y'all this factory is closed!! ;)
i am anticipating my recovery going well and being somewhat similar to recovering from a C-Section, only with a little more abdominal pain/bruising due to the laproscopic procedure being used.
i am also hoping that since i have been more active and having changed my eating habits over the last 2 years will be a plus in recovery as well.
truthfully, i am looking forward to being chaffeured around and being relieved of some of my household duties for a few days!! :) as well as sneaking in a little more scrappy time!! ;)
there ya have it!
happy monday!! and i hope i didn't make anyone lose their breakfast!! :D
and here's to the turning of a new leaf!! and then my leaves can settle down for a while!!
