I sat here for twenty minutes trying to come up (unsuccessfully) with a title before giving up. =)
I just wanted to let you know I might be a little MIA, and there won't be many new recipes for a little while (I still have some new ones that I'm editing pics of that I need to post though!).
I'll be having surgery on Wednesday. I've chosen not to mention any of this and almost decided not to mention it at all (here or on twitter) but finally decided to just share with you, because maybe someone out there is in a similar situation.
I am 29 and I will be having a hysterectomy. Why? LOTS of reasons. I have lots of issues that led to our infertility struggles and even more that I've never discussed here or anywhere, really. I've had several doctors tell me that I would need to have this done sooner rather than later.
Last November my doctor told me that now is the time. I told him no. Recently things have gotten so bad that I can't really take it anymore and surgery was scheduled for this week.
I am very thankful for some friends (you know who you are!) that have recently or not so recently had this procedure done and who have taken the time to talk to me about it and answer my 82,987 questions.
I thought that this would be an in and out thing but found out it's considered "major surgery." I'll be spending one night in the hospital (unless they have to do a different procedure, then 2-4 nights) and the recovery period (bed rest, very light household chores) is 4-6 weeks. I'm not really sure yet what I might have to blog about during that time frame but we will see!
I will probably be on twitter a little more than usual, so come chat with me there. Here's a link to my account. =)
