UPDATE ON MY CYSTECTOMY HEALING JOURNEY
*Disclaimer: I don't claim to be a writer. I am better at singing and dancing. I just like sharing!
HEALING FROM AN
The swelling has gone down considerably. I miss having "harder abs" (insert monkey face with hands over mouth emoji here) - but once my insides are completely healed, I'm going to start getting toned again!
Maybe this time, I can have some kind of a "six-pack". WOO HOO!
Either way, I'm on the mend and I'm excited that I will be able to move more freely in my artistic expression.
Sometimes the pain was overwhelming but for a short period - maybe a day or less. But I learned to deal with it. Fast forward to a year and half later. I was taking a nap on Sunday afternoon, when I had another dream. This time in the dream, I was babysitting for me ex-husband with my sister Nelly.
Suddenly, I felt something coming out of my right side. As the object emerged from a large gaping hole on my right side (where my ovary is), I was bleeding profusely from the wound. In my hand I held what seemed like a large portobello mushroom.
I was crying and telling everyone that I was dying. Nobody seemed to understand me, but the large mushroom object in my hand was very bloody and I felt I was losing consciousness. I woke up while actually crying and holding an imaginary object in my hand.
At this point I decided if I have any more pain, I would go to the E.R.
You can understand the joy and excitement amidst the anxiety of finally being in my hospital gown the morning of surgery!
This was my road to becoming whole again - well, it a not so whole anyway - because I was going to have a possible ovary removed.
Welcome to my personal blog. This blog is going to be filled with everything magickal. Even the grimy stuff of life.
For even in grime and dirt, do you find true gems.
