Greetings from the world of puffed pillows and pain pills, of naps and comfy clothes!
My hysterectomy surgery on April 3 was a success, and I am so blessed to have had wonderful doctors, a wonderful nursing staff, wonderful family, my wonderful husband and daughter, and of course, all of the wonderful prayers sent by you all. In short, it was, well, as wonderful as surgery can be!
My doctor was able to keep my remaining ovary, which means I won't be going into menopause, and that is a blessing, indeed! We still need to wait for pathology to come back on the uterus and cervix, but I pray it is all cancer-free and nothing further is needed.
I came home from the hospital on Wednesday afternoon and have been taking it nice and easy ever since. Yes, I'm in some pain, but it's not terrible, and is definitely manageable with pain medication. My two cats have been keeping me company and I've been doing my best to follow the doctor's orders: namely, to rest, rest, rest.
