yep, I did it again.....


Hello my friends! I hope you all are doing well and as happy that I am that winter is over. Now if we can just clear up that rain! Larry planted a wysteria plant for me and I am like a Mother hen watching over it. We have it on a trellis thingie.....not really a trellis but a metal support cage.... oh you know what I mean! lol


You want to know what I have been up to??? Your not gonna believe it, I can hear a few a you thinking ' I bet she got married'.....nope...Ive been in the FREAKIN HOSPITAL AGAIN!!!!! Can ya believe it??? 3 surgeries in 7 months. I think I should get an award.


About 3 weeks ago I went to my gynnie to get the girls checked and get my pap smear. While he is examining me he has this look on his face....the kinda look you dont like to see on your Dr.s face. I immediately panicked and said whats wrong.....he said....Im not sure......I feel something I dont feel comfortable dismissing. I said......like what? He said hopefully its your uterus...I said...and if its not???? he said lets not get ahead of ourselves here. I said well Im already ahead of myself so what else could it be??? Waldo???? lol. He said well it may be an ovary which means we need to check it out. I started crying, the usual for me. He started patting and trying to reassure me...I finally calmed down.


So I went and got the ultrasound and bloodwork done, went back to his office, he said..Its your ovary, its a growth the size of a grapefruit. He said I cant tell you its not cancer but the odds are in your favor that its not. Then he scheduled me for a ct scan. When I went to him after that he was much more reassurring, he let me read the report, and he said it has to come out now but they did not feel it was malignent. I was so relieved I dang near fell on the floor! So he scheduled my surgery.


I had a total hysterectomy done last Tuesday morning (May13)and came home from the hospital on Thursday morning. He gave me a bikini cut across the bottom so I can still wear my bikini!! Imagine that!!! I am feeling pretty good, getting around well, went to a baby shower on Saturday so you know Im not in much pain. Im not even taking the pain medicine, Im taking advil twice a day.


So I guess there are no babies in the horizon for Larry and me but heck at 60...what would we do with them? lol. I feel great and am just happy its over with. God holds my heart everytime I have been in surgery because he knows how scared I am. And I know with him beside me...I can do anything.
Larry and I are having a great time. He lives next door so the gas prices dont bother us a bit! lol. We usually go somewhere everyday just to get out of the house. My Mother is doing well physically but her memory continues to decline. She still gets out and goes shopping with us and out to dinner. She just gets very confused :((.
I got a new puppy......Baby. I'll take pictures of her and get them on here. Baby and Gidget are doing nicely together considering the fact that Gidget doesnt always play well with others!
Ill be catching up on your blogs this week. I do miss you guys. Sending you all big hugs! Fill me in on whats going on with YOU!

Great to see you back Catch!

Sorry to hear you've had surgery - AGAIN! I had a total hysterectomy three years ago and have been fine too.

It's lovely to hear you and Larry are having such a good time. Good to hear your mum is still getting out and about with you even if she is confused. Can't wait to see your pictures.

I was wondering how your surgery went. I am glad you are doing well and updated us. Now now more surgeries! Can't wait to see the new pup!

eZ said...

I have been worried bout you, I knew if you got married you would share it with the world.
It seems you are falling apart,:)and putting the pieces back together again. You have helped so many others do it you know the routine.
What would we do without faith, or hope!
I think the Chief stepped aside(for now), as he knew Larry would share your spirit of laughing, caring and sharing.
take care

Louisiana said...

i see i'm not the only one enjoying the world outside the keyboard. then again, you got me beat this time in the surgery/hospital/doctors part of things.

so glad it was not cancer. so happy you are healing well from the surgery.

you are too hard on yourself hon, whose eyes wouldn't tear up immediately with any of the situations you have gone through, let alone all of them. of course you would cry and be scared, you are but human. couraged is not measured by tear content is by not hidding your neck in the sand no matter how much we would like to not face things and that my dear, courage, you are made of.

i remember you first mentioning your next door neighbour and i'm so happy you and him are enjoying life. keep on doing so, i love thinking of your dimples out for the world to enjoy.

be happy my sweet. good to have been here and see you are well.

love always my dear friend.
