Two weeks from now...

All my problem should be gone! Well not all my problems, but at least all the health issues I've been having. My procedure has been scheduled for Oct 5 at Baptist Hospital in Nashville. The doc decided he is going to do a LAVH- laproscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy. The details of the actual surgery are a little graphic for blog, so if you're curious google it. He also said he needs to take my cervix because he said he feels that is causing a lot of my pain. Also to quote Dr. Brown, "While I'm in there I am going to take a good look at your ovaries because they have not been behaving". Please pray that they can leave them because if I have to go through menopause at 30 I am pretty sure I will be divorced! He said the recovery will be a good 4-6 weeks because of taking the cervix. I am starting to get a little scared, but I keep looking on the bright side...no more pain, periods, or pap smears (the dreaded P's). Just keep me and my family in your prayers, it's about to get super crazy around here!

maybe this isn't right to say, but you know me. i think i may be a little jealous. of course, i've had surgeries that take 6 weeks to recover, so that doesn't sound too bad to me. so i'm not a good reference for you. but of course i'll pray that you keep your hormone makers.
