I’m Not Making This Up

You ever have that feeling of living in a nightmare?  Or at least had a chain of events that just made you laugh at how ridiculous it all was?

That’s how I feel.

After my getaway with Ben, I thought the pain had finally subsided.  It didn’t.  It only got worse and worse until I was having full blown contractions, again.  I called the on-call doctor, who happened to be my doctor, and practically cried my frustrations to him.   He told me to take some pain medication and to call him in the morning.  I did and was asked to come in for an ultrasound.

The ultrasound didn’t find anything conclusive, but after discussing things with my doctor we determined a D&C was the best option at this point.  I really just wanted the physical pain to go away.

Yesterday I went in at the early hour of 6 am for the surgery.  It was short, I think, I can’t really be certain because I was under general anesthesia, but I do remember waking up to a lot of pain and the nurse giving me as much pain medication as she could.

It was awesome.

Until I am fully healed, I am stuck on the couch.

I guess I’ll be back when I can.

  1. A – I am so sorry. So sorry I’ve been gone from this world for so long that I had no idea all of this was happening. I’ve been gone. And now I feel like such an awful friend. Or maybe not even your friend. And that makes me so sad. Because you are my friend. I’m sorry you’re hurting physically and emotionally. So so sorry. I went through it. Three times. So I know. I really do. I know there are no words to really make you feel better… just know you DO heal. You don’t forget, but you heal.

    I hope you feel stronger soon. Thinking of you and sending BIG hugs. I promise not to be away for so long again. xo
