Major Discovery /post-surgery

Finally. Last night was my first night of sleeping through the night without having to take pills, matter of fact without even as much as waking up!! It was super amazing to wake up and discover it’s 7:30 AM and I had just slept all night. I made a major discovery yesterday, when my husband wanted to leave in the afternoon to go to work and my sis came to stay with me. This was my discovery: “This recovery is going to take a LOT longer than I expected”! Yeah, I know, I didn’t say it was a good one.. It’s just that these pills that I’m taking really do have side affects, which I didn’t expect until I was having different issues and got smart and read up on the papers they sent with the pills.

My Surgery

The long awaited day, May 14th, a Wednesday. finally arrived. I really had no idea what to expect, but I was so ready to get this surgery done! My hubby and I arrived at Murray Calloway County Hospital in plenty of time to get registered and find our waiting area by 6 AM. My Dr. has privileges at this hospital and does his surgeries there.

I was pretty sure I wasn’t but I had told my hubby, … Continue reading

A Gentle Prodding…

I worked for a few months (July 19 – Dec. 20, 2012) and it just wasn’t working for me, too long hours! During that time i was with my sister during the birth of my niece, it put a whole new perspective on my lil world! When I saw the support she got from her husband, my heart was filled with compassion for young girls that have to go through that pain as a young girl with no husband or possibly even family at her side, I could not imagine! And the thought of them having an abortion rather than facing all that scariness alone whirled in my head…. Someone needs to be there for them!! And lots of people thought that me watching a birth would scare me out of becoming pregnant, well, I don’t really know why, but it didn’t, yes it looked crazy painful, but the miracle … Continue reading
