I always try to keep a positive and upbeat tone on my blog, but this post is a bit different. I’ve debated writing it for a while, but I want to keep you updated on myself in the honest way that I always appreciate when I read other blogs.
Tomorrow (Tuesday August 7th) I’m having surgery that I’ve planned on having for a little while now and scheduled in June. I’m having what’s called an abdominal myomectomy to remove fibroids that have grown quite large (I found out about them a little less than two years ago) and have caused some problems. It’s an in-patient procedure and I’ll be in the hospital for a night or two. I won’t be allowed to exercise for 4-6 weeks (can you imagine how I’m going to do this?!), and I’m not supposed to even be picking things up that weigh more than a milk jug.
I’m a bit nervous about the surgery and recovery process, but I know it’s something that has to happen for comfort and also for the ability to have kids in the (not close) future.
I’m sharing this with you for a few reasons: I want to be honest and open. I would love your prayers or thoughts. I want to explain why I don’t have as many exercise plans or goals this month. And I want to give reason for why I’m hesitant to sign up just yet for the Disney Marathon in January…
I’m going to schedule posts for wedding pictures and honeymoon pictures and day of and rehearsal dinner pictures this week, but you probably won’t get a response from me for a little while. I also have received a few wonderful comments and emails from new followers and readers that I haven’t gotten back to because of trying to get things in order, and I apologize for that and love and appreciate them so much.
I will update you when I’m up to it! I look forward to catching up with all that you’ve been up to when I get back at it!
