Default Can't get rid of me!

I've been quiet and I do apologize. I didn't think anyone would miss me just yet, but apparently someone missed me enough to send me a message!



You might have known that I had an emergency appendectomy early in January. The pathology report was shocking as it wasn't my appendix but endometriosis (that I had no idea I had!) suffocating my appendix and other internal organs. I've been awaiting a date for surgery to get a hysterectomy. I guess my baby days are officially over and makes sense why our little man took 9+ years to conceive an why we never could conceive after his birth! I've come to peace with the surgery, however my body has not appreciated the loss of space in my body and I've been in severe pain since my appendectomy! I can finally see the light at the end of the road--on Wednesday morning, I'll be having surgery which will help reduce this intense pain that I've been suffering the past almost 2 months. However I have 2-weeks of recovery and pain medication. I don't think I'll be online while I'm on that pain medication as I often say/do really strange things without any knowledge of doing so!

That is why you've seen my comments (and my scrapping) lacking, especially this last past week. I've been pretty miserable. Yesterday I barely left the sofa, floor (yup, I couldn't get up off the floor!) or bed--I feel better laying down. When I sit, it hurts so much. So I apologize for my lack of comments in the gallery. I could comment on my phone, but I'm not a phone person and hate dealing with typing (typo-typing) on my phone. I'm still here; I haven't left you all. Today, I'm trying to play catch-up of the few days of the birthday celebration that I've missed. Hopefully I can get a few of the days caught up so I'm not out of the running (although I'm sure many of you hope I am with my luck these past few months!)

This is the best that I can do for a meme today....


Please don't think you can get rid of me that easy....I will be back!

HUGS Wendy. Sounds like a bummer of a week. I had my hysterectomy December 2017. Best Decision EVER!

Here's to the end of the road.

Aw Wendy, I hope your surgery is a success and solves all these pain issues for you! I pray for a safe surgery and a swift recovery, and if we catch you making funny comments while under the influence of pain meds, we will never let you forget it!

Kidding, we will. But we might rub it in for a little while.
Best wishes and I hope everything goes well!

That's what I'm trying to avoid!! When I broke my leg in 2009, I made some strange comments. Thankfully Dawn was able to let me know via text that I could do some damage control. I'm going to try to be good this time around!

Hugs, Wendy! I too was wondering why you were so quiet, but I thought it's just because of weekend and you're having a family time. So sorry that you're in pain instead
Praying that the surgery will go smoothly and you'll be healing nicely.

Good luck with the surgery and recovery, Wendy. Endometriosis can be debilitating (been there, done that!), fingers crossed for you feeling like a new woman in the months to come. xx

Awww...Wendy, I had no idea you were going through all of that! Hugs and prayers for a speedy recovery that will leave you completely pain-free. We will miss your positive energy and gorgeous pages while you're away, but do take this time to focus on your recovery and feeling better. We'll be here ready to welcome you back with open arms the minute you feel up to it!

I get where you are coming from way too much. A year ago December I had an emergency appendectomy. Everyone talks abut how they were up and going 3 days later. I was in severe pain for weeks and weeks after; docs said I was the rare exception. The hysterectomy surgery previously was way easier! So I hope your pain levels continue to go down as once they do it seems like you get better exponentially each day.

Sorry you are in pain, but hoping the surgery helps and that you heal quickly! Take it easy and don't push yourself too hard.

So sorry to hear what you are going through. Good luck with the surgery and wishing you speedy recovery. I had one too few years back and honestly I do not miss my uterus. I was suffering from fibroids.

Thank you Dawn and Tammy!
My surgery went well. He said there was a lot of endo to remove. He took everything but all of the ovaries, he had to take some of them due to the endo on them. He took care of endo damage inside my bladder.

My surgery was bumped from 1pm to 5:30am. I came out and they said I could either go home or stay until this morning. I chose to go home, which is great because I got to see the younger kids, the oldest isn’t home due to a 72-hour hold so I was unable to see her. I came home and slept. One of my husband’s peope came with KFC last night for dinner for the family and made me homemade pea soup. I have no appetite but ate a few bites. I’ve been laying down since in a lot of pain, but it’s only for a few more weeks and it’s all over forever!

But yeah. I’m doing well and at home. Vicodin this time around isn’t making me loopy, which is good. Although my husband says sometimes I’m not making sense.
The only complication from my surgery is my bp is really low, like in the 70’s. As a result im dizzy. I had to have a shot to raise my bp and continue to check it to make sure it’s going back to the 90’s, which is normal for me. If it doesn’t by the weekend I’ll Have to get another round of medicine to increase my bp

Typing on my phone so I apologize for any typos.
But I’m alive, over with surgery and resting. Thank you all for prayers, well wishes and good thoughts. I appreciate it so very much!!

It makes a world of difference when you have people around to help out. That was very thoughtful of your husband's friend to bring over dinner.
