All done

My hysterectomy is done and I came home yesterday. Sort of. I really came to my mom's home after realizing that I was too tired and shaky to do more than very tiny tasks (get some water, move from one room to another). Being where I have help lets me have a little energy left over for things like a shower or tiny walk. At my house a shower wouldn't even have been an option because I can't step into a bathtub; my mom has a walk in shower. I'm making myself think I'll be here a week and if I make it home sooner that's great. I'm really feeling ok. My belly hurts and it is HUGE. With "light control" panties in the largest size I could find (5 more than mine?)we laughed so hard because I have an 8 months pregnant tummy that the support garment makes all smooth and natural looking. I can't be very active at all without pain and/or dizziness but there are worse things and it's good to be reminded to slow down before I hurt too much. I have 4 incisions, 2 of which are just as sore as the dr. told me they would be. That apparently is where the uterus is removed. The did discover that my right fallopian tube had narrowed significantly and possibly caused the pain I had there. We hope so since that tube and it's mate are gone. I'll write more later. I just overdid and am not feeling very good at this precise moment. Copyright 2006 www.masterofirony.blogspot.com

Good Morning, Jen!
It's so nice to see a post from you and know you are on your road to recovery.

Your swollen stomach must be really odd feeling. Hopefully you're not in too much pain though... sounds like you are taking care of yourself. Now, no more overdoing, ok?

It also seems that this is/has been an entirely different experience than your last surgery, and PRAISE GOD for that! It's a Blessing to be on the "other side" of surgery now and I am glad for you.

Looking forward to many rainbow days for you in the future!

Here is part of today's devotional:


Promise #258: I will be faithful to give you My strength and protection.

God is faithful. He will never leave you or forsake you and He has promised to protect you from the evil one. In a world that is full of broken promises, this is something that we can know and rely on. The NIV Bible says 2 Thessalonians 3:3 this way... But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one. (NIV)

You can rest in the fact that you are safe and secure in your heavenly Father's love. His Word is His bond and He is completely faithful to do all that He promises. May faith rise up in our hearts today to believe that God is who He says He is and that we are who He says we are... His beloved children (1 John 3:1).

If you want an excellent uplifting song, enjoy "Your Love Never Fails,"
with the chorus:

"You make all things work together for my good." (Romans 8: 28)
