Happy Wednesday to you! Our snow is back and it is so pretty; I'm thankful that I can stay inside today. Yesterday was one of those interesting days for me, a day when you have your feet knocked out from under you, emotionally, and your head won't stop spinning. First thing in the morning, I headed to our Women's Clinic to have an abdominal ultrasound; I had been having some issues over the last month that we needed to find out about. The beginning of the ultrasound was good, but then it turned out I have some cysts on one of my ovaries. O.k. I got home and within ten minutes my Gyn/nurse practitioner was calling me, quite concerned. Long story short, I headed back to the Clinic for blood work, genetic testing and ended up meeting my new doctor. The long and the short of it is that I am going to be having a hysterectomy within the next 3+ weeks-which is not only soon, but has made us cancel some getaways. Normally I wouldn't worry about having one, except that I will not be having a Lazer one but will be opened up. I am not one to share a lot here, but I have a specific reason for doing so. I'm going to be 63 this March and this is a major surgery; I have had two Csections, but that was 33 yrs ago. I'm hoping that one of my readers has gone through this surgery at or near my age, so I know just what to expect. I love my doctor, but she has told me it is a rough recovery. At this point, I am not going to share any of the concerns we have concerning this, but feel that many may understand the implications. I also know how caring the blogging community is and your support will help me get through this and all the uncertainties to follow. One thing I stand secure in is that My God will be right by my side, every step of the way. He will not fail me or forsake me.
Tomorrow I will have a book review and be giving my readers a chance at winning the book.
