You’re going to think I’m an asshole

But I need to vent. I hate Mother's Day with every fiber of my being.  I am in such a foul mood that I need to get it all out of my system before it ruins my weekend. (too late)  People get to bitch about Valentine's Day but say a bad word about Mother's Day…

New game I get to play.

It's called: Is it menopause? Let's play, shall we? Goes like this, take a symptom you have and try to figure out if it menopause or something else. Dry eyes: Is it menopause or spring allergies? Electric current feeling under my skin: Is it menopause or is it some sort of neurological problem? Exhausted: Is it…

Afraid of the coming summer…

So what do you do if you can't stand the heat yet you can't leave the kitchen? Seriously?  What do you do?  For the most part, I am adapting to the hot flashes and have even trained myself to throw off the covers when I get hot without completely waking up so I'm not really waking…

Checking in.

Hello everyone that is still following this blog.  [listens for chirps...] Thought I would take a moment and check in to let you know how post-hysterectomy life is going.  So far pretty good I think.  I still have some ups and downs.  This week after five days of exercising for five days in a row…

We now return you…

...to your normal broadcasting. Yesterday was my five-week post-op check up and I passed with flying colors.  The doctor told me I had the best possible outcome for uterine cancer, Grade one Stage one with no spread beyond the endometrial lining.  We caught this as early as possible and I handled the surgery well.  I…

So…

...Did you think I disappeared? I haven't  still recovering at home with 12 days left before my follow-up appointment on March 1st.  Haven't shared anything because there isn't much to share.  I don't think I am going to learn the staging of my cancer before my appointment because I've heard nothing from Iowa City.  That's…

One Week Post-Op: No Big Deal

Greetings everyone. I was going to post something yesterday but decided to hold out until the one week mark. So, how am I doing? Really well actually.  I continue to have no real pain or other issues.  I was able to handle the stairs without any issue, I moved out of the bedroom after four…

Home From The Hospital

I'm Home and doing well. Thank you, again, for all the well wishes and support.  Husband and I are eternally grateful for all of your kindness. So how it went... Very well actually.  We left home and arrived early at the hospital and I wanted to walk around a bit before checking in to get my…

Day Before Surgery: No Expectations.

Good Morning.  The day is finally here, time for my surgery. Just so you know it is scheduled for tomorrow, January 24 at noon, but I am counting the day-before prep as part of the whole experience.  Husband and I spent the weekend together, it was nice he didn't have overtime this week, went thrifting…

6 Days Pre-Op

I feel like I've been waiting forever... When I think about the fact that I was diagnosed just diagnosed with cancer on December 19, 2016 it feels so difficult to believe.  It was just a month ago tomorrow actually.  Wow.  Only one month when it feels like ages.  I must say again my diagnosis and…
