Post Op Day 33-Surg #2


Dropping Momma Joyce off at the airport in the AM...so sad to see her go BUT I will see her again in a few months!  Ready to start back to work this week-I'm going to start back with 2 nights in a row for sure, and maybe do a 3rd depending on how I feel.  My job is amazing and allowing me to do 60 hrs every 2 wks instead of my regular 72.  Hopefully this allows me to get more rest and to fully recover prior to my final surgery in late October!  I had a great last weekend with my momma-she is truly one of my best friends and we always manage to make things fun despite life's trials and tribulations.  Oh and I should give a little disclaimer here, I went to church this morning so this blog gets a little bit religious (and I get choked up at times)...but my feelings toward organized religion are something I've struggled with for quite some time now.  I truly hope that no one finds my words offensive because that was never my intention at all. Everyone has their own way of expressing their faith and I hope we all can respect that. That being said, I believe in the power of prayer and I want to thank you all once again for keeping me in yours!  *Much love*

Post Op Day 30-Surg #2

Yay for good post-op reports from Dr. Gorgun!!  And most importantly, there is an end in sight!!  My 3rd and final surgery is now scheduled for Oct 30th!! 3 more months of this little added accessory...and you better believe I'll be counting down the days! I'm so incredibly happy and grateful that things are going according to plan.  Mine and His. God is oh-so-good. :)

Back to Ohio-Post Op Day 27, Surg #2

Momma J and I made the long trek back up to Cleveland once again today...hoping to hear good news and get things on track for me.  Looking forward to the Botanical Gardens in the AM and then an appt with a new gynecologist later in the afternoon.  I'm curious to see what that darn cyst on my ovary has been up to...

Post Op Day 19-Surg #2

Not much to say about this week...trying to do little things throughout the day and it continues to prove to be exhausting most of the time.  It is frustrating to me, but I'm grateful for the good days and the time with my Momma.  She's been so good to me, even at times when I'm undeserving.  God Bless her :)

Oh the web life sometimes weaves...


So as if recovering from a major abdominal surgery wasn't enough...now I've got to tackle a hemorrhagic cyst on my darn ovary!  Wtheck?!  The good Lord must really be trying my patience...just to make sure I'm strong, inside and out, I suppose.  Anyhow...my attitude has taken a hit these past few days...trying to stay optimistic, but it's difficult when things keep piling on top of each other!  Oh well, I just keep telling myself that it will all be worth it in the end!!  Thanks to my awesome family and friends for all the amazing support!  <3 you all!

Pics from my day of surgery #2


My dad and I 

My Momma and I 

My Dad took this as they were wheeling me away to the surgical suite! 

This is the first time they had me sit up...luckily still under a lot of the anesthesia :) 

Bill...what a trooper he is!! I'm pretty lucky to have a guy that was willing to go through this ordeal with me :)
