Let's Get This Out Of The Way
So I went to see my fine doctor today, had a bunch of additional tests and the verdict is ...
Now, if you are a boy who hates it when girls talk about their junk or you are a squeamish person, you may want to go get a cup of coffee or a beer or something because we are going to be talking about girl stuff. And I know that makes some people uncomfortable.
I'm waiting. Go here. It will be more restful for you.
All right. For the rest of you, I received a lovely birthday surprise.
I was hoping to avoid this. I like all my parts in place and have had this luxery for 40 years, but it appears that this is the only route I can take.
The Good News is there is no cancer and I can't even begin to tell you how grateful I am about that. The other good news is that they aren't taking everything (I get to keep the ovaries so I can "naturally age".)
The bad news is, I have to have this and what is called a hammock.
My surgery is scheduled for Oct. 23, early in the morning but recovery time will be about half of what I expected, so that is good because I've been worrying myself to death about work.
There are reasons. One, I just lost a ton of weight and the sucker just fell. Second of all, Endometriosis. That I've had since I was a teen and it caught up with me.
There are a few things that you don't need to do when you are finding out you have to have surgery. DO NOT, AND I REPEAT, DO NOT, Google images of hysterectomies for God's sake.It's just damned creepy and I don't advise doing it in the least.
Second of all, I'm looking on the bright side. I really don't want to do this because it's a girl thing. I mean, I've never had kids, although I love them.
And for some reason, I feel like this is a passage of some sort into middle age. I like to think I'm fabulous (if I don't, who will?) but it's sort of depressing in a way as well but I'm dealing with it.
Better to feel fabulous as well, don't you think?
So this heady stuff is out of the way. I'm headed to K-Town next week, going to a greekfest
and I get to meet some of the east side bloggers.
Let the birthday celebration continue.
