Surgery again yeahhhh me!

I am back from the gyno. today with answers. I now am on the list for a hysterectomy. My uterus's is filled with fibroids and there are a few that are very large. There are so many fibroids that my uterus has become bigger then normal. The Doctor was pressing on my tummy and said that my uterus is just below my belly button. For some reason this made me laugh, I guess being as I have a weird sense of humor to begin with. He also said my tummy there is so hard because of the size of the uterus and fibroids.
He is hoping to do a robotic surgery and I will be cut above the belly button, justabove my hernia incision and up about 5 inch's or so. Giggles set in again thinking of the road map of incisions I will have. The recovery time is quicker and has an over night stay as compared to staying for two nights.
I still need to get the MRI done being as there are two growths that were not able to be shown as to what they are. I am now in the process of trying to find out what was done during a former surgery that was implanted.
Prayers for me as I deal with a new stress and a relief as well. XOXOXO Daphne

More Doctor appointments

I have another Doctor appointment tomorrow with the OBGYN. I hope to find out what is going on with my insides and what can be done about it. I am tired if the female issues and how wore out I end up being. I want to feel like a human again one that loves to go outside and go shopping one that loves to go walking again.
I did not decorate for Halloween this year. I know it is not supposed to be a Christian holiday but I still love it. It is fun to decorate with spiders and pumpkins and all that fun stuff. Oh and getting the candy sales after Halloween is really fun. I like to watch the scary movies on tv and I have a blast seeing how all the kids are dressed up.
I am reading a new book called Perfection written by Julie Metz. I will review it in a different blog but I am having mixed feelings over it. For the most part it iswell written and I want to keep reading to see what happens next.  I am not thrilled with how much sex is in the book. I understand how that is basically part of the theme but at times it is like non stop sex. The cheating in the book also was not a happy theme. I got angry at the husband and almost did not read futher. I do love to read and it has peaked my interest and I am going to finish it.
I am really ready for Christmas. I plan on making most of my gifts. Not sure what all I will make but hey it will be a home spun Christmas. We might be going to hubbies parents for Christmas this year if he is not working a second job yet and if we can afford the gas. I am still going to decorate the house here. I have a new tree to put up with lots of pretty colored lights. I also have the big lights to put up outside in different colors. I am excited to decorate this year. If we go to the in laws I will miss our Christmas pagent at church but the church in Bakesfield is always nice. Oh and the weather in Cali. is warmer then ours.

OK it seems as if each time a door opens another one closes. I know the saying is the other way but here it is reversed. I have an income now and insurance and now hubby has his hours cut down to 24 hours a week from 40 and he will end up losing his insurance. He has diabetes and he honestly needs insurance.
I am thankful that I have insurance and had my hernia surgery. I have Doctor appointments set up and MRI as well. I love that I can get sick and be covered now. I just worry about hubby.
Megan is having a rough time right now. She is making life hard on all of us but especially me. She has taken to hitting me and scratching me as well as cussing at me. She now screams F U all the time. It is getting hard to go to the store with her and not have people stare. She was even yelling this at church. *sigh*
I did have a dream last night. Megan was verbal and could hold conversations like you and me. She started with her FUs and then went to 2 word sentences and then more and more. I was talking to her having a regular conversation and it was so fun.
Oh thought I would post a new picture of Mali in her cute new dress. I love to dress her up and she will so far let me!

Prayer Chain

I was at ladies Bible study today and was ready to leave with Jo when I walked back in to see if Jo was ready. She was talking to Pastor and a couple of others from Church and I found out the needed a new leader for the prayer chain. Jo wanted to do it but she just has a cell phone and it is long distance for most people here. I said that I would love to run the prayer chain that it would bless me. I talked to Pastor about what is involved and he made sure I knew that there might be numerous phone calls in a day and that I was the lead to get the prayer chain started. I said yes I want to! I am now the lead of the prayer chain.
I will keep all the prayers in a note book and keep tract of all that is asked of for prayers. This is something I will love to do. I had talked a while back to friends about how I wanted to pray for people and really pray for them not just a quick *blessing* on people but a real meaningful prayer. I think and I hope and yes I pray that I will meet and exceed all that will be asked of me.

Healing is Boring

OK I am bored out of my mind now. I can not drive until the weekend and then only if I am off the pain pills. I took two last night at 11ish and then did not have any until 3:30 today. I should of taken them sooner I was a bit to sore.
I go Friday and get the drain tube taken out. I will be much happier when it is out. Having that tube hanging down is not comfortable and it pulls on the skin when it drops. It is also gross seeing stuff draining out of your side.
Now that the hernia is repaired I am looking at having a hysterectomy. I have an appointment for an ultra sound and an appointment with the OB-GYN in a couple of weeks. I still need to make the appointment for the mammogram.
I am going to make another general appointment to get some skin tags removed and to look into a diet plan. I know the insurance pays part of some programs and they let you work with a dietitian as well. I am going to use the benefits to the best of my advantage.
Just think how much healthier I will be next summer if all goes as planned? No hernia, no female issues causing me to be anemic, weight loss going full force...... I will be kicking it high time!
