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.
