Day Three

Well, I made it through the dance competition this morning.  Both my girls danced and did well; I started hurting some towards the end but it was more like mild period cramps than anything else.  I came and home and lay down, and now I’m feeling better.  I plan to be lazy until my youngest daughter goes to a birthday party this afternoon and my middle one has her friends over to play games and munch.  So the hard part of the day is over, I think and I swing into next week hopefully pain free!  Thanks all of you for praying for me as I go through this recovery with just not very much to post.

Day Two

So I don’t feel as good.  I’ve been trying to be lazy as possible but had to go out and run some errands to do with activities tonight and I am now tired out and a little sore.  I’m not sure what else I’m going to do today except try to rest some more.  I don’t feel horrible, but just not as good as I thought I would be doing.

So keep thinking about me as I recover from this and that by Monday I’ll be ready to take on the youngest one’s birthday week!  That’s always fun.

No Narcotics, Day 1

So we will see how I do without the heavy pain meds today.  I have a slow day planned so as to not aggravate anything more than necessary.  So far it’s been a textbook recovery, too.  I haven’t had any bleeding since the day of surgery and am happy about that.  So far there doesn’t seem to be any interaction with my bipolar meds so that is good as well.  Hopefully all’s well that ends well. I plan to try to return to regular posting on Monday unless something happens. Until then, I’ll just keep you updated on my progress.

Thanks for all of you who have said you are praying for me, I certainly appreciate it and can feel them working,.  Have a good day!


Well. my doctor told Bob that my surgery was by the book; very simple and couldn’t have worked out better. I was a little shocked at being rolled into recovery–it didn’t seem possible that they were through already.  I kept asking if they were sure they’d done it.  They told me I’d be aware of it in about 10 minutes as they put more morphine in my drip. And they were right.

Bad night last night; they’d told me to drink a lot so I spent the night peeing.  Other than that, I’ve felt pretty good.  I’m about to take my pain killers and rest up for the rest of the day.  Hope you all have a good day.

Today’s The Day

So I’ll have my procedure done midday, around 12:30.  We have to be there at 10:30 for  al the preop stuff, getting admitted, getting prepped, etc.  Can’t eat anything beforehand and I’m handling that pretty well so far except I’m sleepy from not getting my daily dose of Dr. Pepper 🙂  Bu I’m feeling pretty good.  Last week I started getting anxious about it–hoping nothing would go wrong, wondering if I even needed to be doing it, wondering if once they got in there they found something REALLY evil to deal with. But I feel better about all that today,.  It’s just something I have to go through and get over.  So be thinking about me today while I’m waiting for something to eat 🙂

Light Posting

I may not be updating as much this week as usual–I’m having an outpatient procedure done tomorrow and am not sure how quickly I’ll recover from it.  I’m having an endometrial ablation done to correct my periods–I’ve been having trouble with them for about seven months now and this procedure was recommended for it.  It’s a step above a D&C in that it removes the entire lining of the uterus so there is no more tissue to shed monthly.  So that is the story so far.  I may be down a few days, or I may  be too high on painkillers to post coherently :).  We will see. Pray for me that this procedure will go well and I’ll be back on my feet by Thursday as they’re predicting.
