Surgery Success!

Just a brief check in to let you all know things went great.

My doctor removed my uterus and all its fibroids for an immediate weight loss of just over 5 pounds! They have fed me (I can eat without feeling uncomfortable!)  and I have graduated up to only having a vitals check every four hours! I even went for a walk around the hallway,  very slowly.

Thank you for all your well wishes. I’m on the mend and starting my new life!!

Circus Trip 2018: Still Sick!

Sadly, this cold is still wiping me out.  I was hoping to be feeling better by now, and I was, but my cold took a turn for the worse again with more sore throat, swollen lymph nodes and exhaustion.  Not to mention all the pretty colors I’ve been coughing up.  Fun!

I did go for on a short hike a couple days ago, with beautiful views of Mount Shasta.  The 3 miles of the Spring Hill Trail, with only a 650 foot elevation gain, wore me out.  It was good to be out on a beautiful, warm day and get some fresh air though!  The temperature was in the mid-70s, in November!

 

 

Besides the hike, I’ve been laying low and sleeping quite a bit, and thankfully, I have the ability to do that.  I want to be on the mend soon though!
