Tomorrow is the day I say goodbye to my Uterus, am I sad ……. not at all. It has served me quite well throughout they Years. It gave me 4 beautiful, loving , caring children. Which in turn gave me 3 ( 4 in September) beautiful, loving , caring , sweet, adorable, crazy , kick ass grandson’s.
Am I worried about tomorrow…..absolutely!!!!! No one likes surgery. I work in surgery. So on the flip side, I was able to line up every one I liked as my surgical team. My preop team and my recovery team.
What Am I worried about…… recovery. 6-8 weeks!!! No gym, wait did I say No gym???? Yes, but my plan is to ease my way back there. But definitely no lakes😢, pools, etc!!! So no skiing, 🏄, wakeboarding etc. slow boat rides later in recovery. DAd please hear that…….slow boat rides. Lol
But am I excited for after it’s all over, recovery and all.
What a blessing it shall be!!!!!
So today is a mental health day for me, and if you don’t hear from me for a few days…… don’t be concerned, I’m just enjoying my pain meds. Here’s a girl who basically takes no medicine ever. Maybe a Motrin during that horrible monthly thing ( goodbye to you🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼) so it’s going to be interesting to see how this plays out.
Please say a little prayer tomorrow as I enter the OR around 8:30 am. I was told it’s a 4-5 hour case 😳😳😳Thank you to everyone in advance.
Good bye 👋🏼 uterus , it’s been real ❤️
