Two weeks and counting until my hysterectomy. I'm slowly preparing for it. Getting kids taken care of since I will not be able to drive. Working on meals. Asking for help during the day while Superdad is at work. I even have help cleaning the house once a week thanks to my awesome baby sis.
My Mamaw called over the weekend to tell me she was going to take me shopping for a robe and slippers for my hospital stay. Isn't she the greatest!?!?!? Then she said something funny.
"Then your oven won't bake bread anymore."
I thought that was hysterical. Leave it to my Mamaw to say something so funny about having a hysterectomy.
I think I am doing better with not being sad over anymore babies. I have been focusing on the good things like NO MORE PERIODS, not having to worry about birth control and NOT HAVING ANYMORE PERIODS!!! Know what I mean?
I have heard so many women just tell how wonderful it was after their hysterectomy. How they felt health wise and the freedom it gave them. I'm sure I will be one of those women after I recover and not have another period. Ha ha!
It also helps that Baby M is going through the terrible two's and Lil O is going through the terrible five's. Makes me want to do the hysterectomy myself. Not really, but you get my drift.
