I am slowly coming back. I had my massive surgery a few weeks ago. It has been in the works for a couple of years but this time, I finally got it taken care of. Thank you so much to all of you for your well wishes, calls, meals and visits. I can not tell you how much they have helped! This surgery was a lot more intense than I had thought and it has really knocked me on my kiester!
People have asked what I had done. For you ladies, you will understand. After Kaeson, I had was told not to have any more kids. Later we were told that we wouldn’t be able to have more kids. Well, kids don’t listen to doctors and Kelton made his way into the world.
Pregnancy and child birth really did a number on me and my body paid the price. I ended up having to have a hysterectomy, bladder repair and a complete posterior reconstruction. Don’t want to go into too many gory details, but if you are interested, I will be happy to tell you about it! I was expecting the surgery to be like having a baby. Boy, was I off on that one. It was easily 10 times more painful.
Since coming home, I have managed to get a slew of other stuff that has made recovery only worse. I had had a UTI, two yeast infections, the flu and strep throat. It has really knocked me to the ground. As for recovery, I am pretty much home bound for the next several weeks. I am not on complete bedrest but I have to be down a good portion of the day. The rest of the time, they want me walking around a little bit so that I don’t get blood clots. Fun! To boot, I can’t lift anything over 10 pounds for 8 weeks! How do you do that with a 15 month old?
Thank you so much to everyone for all of your help. I had no idea how much this was going to put me out of commission. Every single act of kindness has not gone unnoticed. Thank you so much for all that everyone has done. I never realized how many friends I really had! I am so blessed!
