A Final Goodbye 

2 weeks ago today, I woke up to the dawn of a new day and a final goodbye. The day before, I had undergone major surgery…a hysterectomy.  This was of course a hard and emotional decision to come to after many other treatments had failed.  

As I layed in the hospital bed that day, I was overwhelmed with a range of emotions…

Physically – I felt a sense of emptiness. My uterus and other female organs had been removed.

Emotionally – I was dealing with the loss of what was once a dream…giving birth.

Mentally – I was fighting the thoughts of feeling less than as a woman.

I can’t say enough about the medical team that I had.  From day 1, my Dr. was a gem. 

  

I also had an incredible nurse, that really went the extra mile.

 
More than anything though, when you are going through something like this, it is family (blood or inherited) that make all the difference.  

   
  


Though, I have 4 more weeks until full physical recovery and who knows how long until the emotional recovery, I’m thankful to be healthy and to be able to fully pursue my purpose.
