Hyster is scheduled

Well, my total hyster. is scheduled for June 27th.  Gives me plenty of time to get things together (you know, clean the house - retrain  the husband, etc!!!)

Dear T --
All my thoughts and all my prayers will go with you. As the other ladies say, you're very special to us all.

On the other hand, you're also VERY optimistic to think you can train the Hubby to step into your shoes while you're out of action. Even my significant other (better trained than most) acted surly and strange when I first returned from the hospital. Like my cats, he just wasn't comfortable with a different 'me.' :-)

However, better to clean your house now than to come back to a mess. Please let us know as soon as you are able that you are well and gathering strength.

*Hugs*

Best of luck on your surgery. As for training the husband - well you know what they say about old dogs and new tricks! I know what you mean about cleaning up your entire house. I think we all go through that. The week before my surgery, I moved all the furniture out of our bedroom, except for the bed, tore up the old carpet, rolled it up in pieces and tied it up, trucked it outside and covered it with a tarp. Then I scrubbed the walls, patched holes and got them ready for painting. All this because a bedroom redecoration was in the works and I knew my surgery would be an easy excuse to put it off. Now he has to do the work even if I can't help to much. It worked...the walls have been painted, the new floor purchased, crown molding and baseboards in the garage and no one can act the martyr because I did one of the biggest jobs! Actually, I have the best husband in the world and I can count on him for anything. Except dishes...he doesn't do dishes!
Cheers,
Michelle

I'm with the other ladies, your house will be sparkling because something about surgery sets us in motion! I also paid lots of bills WAY in advance because I didn't think my DH knew where the checkbook was. (he still doesn't know!!)

I'm not up on what exactly is sending you in for the hysterectomy, but as someone who had one three weeks ago I can tell you that I feel very good. I get tired easily which kind of sneaks up on me, but other than that, it's been smooth. I wish for you the same.

OH Tascha, that was fast eh....well you sure know what to expect from "all of us who have gone before you!"  
Just take it easy, I cleaned the house before and it got trashed anyway.... enjoy yourself the next few weeks before the surgery, and let it all go!  Rest up! Stock up on movies and books! ....We'll be here for ya of course!

Oh boy, well, you know that soon you will be free of the pain you have been going through...I promise you before you know it, you will be on the RS.

Say, though, I appreciate the heads-up on this. I'll start planting your hormones this weekend :)

Looks like we've got some good planting weather ahead.   Need any "fertilizer"?  I know where you can get a load "wink, wink"

Dear "Great" Gatsby,
You have befriended so many of us, advised us all, and gave us encouragement when we have had an upcoming surgery. You have so many that will be thinking about you. Good luck and Godspeed! And thank you for our fun times, I hope you will recover quickly so that you will feel up to coming to cyber parties and stuff! I look forward to reading your posts on the RS to see how everything went and how it all feels. I know you still got 3 weeks until then, but I just wanna' tell ya everything now!
Take care,
(((Raynbow

Sorry you must have missed an earlier post.  I have been in a lot of pain the last few months.  Not just during my period, but everyday.  I also have had really, really heavy and long periods.  My dr. believes that with my symptoms and also looking at a good picture of my uterus (which he took durig my dermoid sx) that I have adenomyosis.  So he is going to do a vaginal hyster if possible.  I hope he can do it this way as it is less painful and less recovery time.  I hope this gives you more info!! :-)
