I know I've been talking a lot about surgery but it is my blog so I can do what I want. Right?
So 6 weeks ago today I was in surgery having my uterus removed.
People said 6 weeks was kind of the point where I'd be mostly healed. And thankfully they are right! Even in the last few days I've felt a substantial increase in energy, praise the Lord.
I still have some incision pain but I haven't needed meds for a couple of days, so that's good.
I will go to Labcorp for the LAST TIME I HOPE today to see if my HCG levels from the pregnancy are below 5. It's one of those things my OB/GYN has been tracking to make sure my body got rid of everything from the pregnancy. I guess pregnancy remnants can get stuck in odd places? That sounds so unscientific and non medical. Sorry.
Anyway, I should be below 5 HCG today which is where she wants me to be.
I've done a lot more around the house the last week. Kevin and the kids did a marvelous job of keeping the house running and I'm tremendously grateful to and proud of them. Having said that, a few things fell by the wayside during our crisis mode, which is understandable. I'm working on getting bathrooms cleaned up and toys organized.
We're back in the swing of things with school.
So yes, I am happy.
