I’ll be off in the morning to a week of artful bliss at Art & Soul! I found out that the hotel does not have complementary internet access so I will be leaving my laptop at home.
I got my hair cut on Saturday. I chose this cut
with these bangs . Kari called the highlights “auburn.” I like it but haven’t taken a pic of myself… I hate having my picture taken when I am so big. I know it shouldn’t matter but it does. Losing weight and getting in shape are two things on my to do list. For now I’m okay… just no posed pics. 🙂
I’m going to apologize in advance for this paragraph—it’s a bit too personal for some people’s taste.
Anyway, I’ll be back next week for two days before I have surgery. I had an endometrial ablation last year but it didn’t make the problems go away. So now I am having a hysterectomy. I had a c-section when my daughter was born so the doctor is going to try to do it laparoscopically but he warned me that 20 years ago, military doctors were doing some creative sewing involving the bladder and uterus so he may have to cut an incision where my scar is in order to remove right stuff. Leaving my cervix and ovaries (no hormone therapy—thank goodness). Of course, if my ovaries look cancerous (he said it was easy to visualize), they would remove them. I asked him if he could do a tummy tuck at the same time but he wasn’t going for it. Dang! Anyway, I’ll be off work either two weeks or six weeks depending on the incision. I’m a couple decades older than I was when I had Amber—my doctor didn’t hesitate to remind me—so my body’s not as resilient. Recovery probably won’t be as easy as it was back then. I don’t care… I can’t wait to never have another period again!
I’ll be taking lots of pictures (if I can) at the art retreat and will share them when I get back. Now I’ve got to run to get all the last minute stuff done!
