It's almost been a month since my surgery and I'm happy to say that I'm finally feeling like myself again! Due to a huge fibrous mass on my uterus that was rapidly growing right into my bladder, my gynecologist decided that it was best to do a hysterectomy along with a bladder repair. My bladder was so squished from the fibroids taking up so much room that it could only hold 1/2 a cup of fluid at a time. As you can imagine, I was constantly running to the bathroom and going out anywhere always meant hunting for the nearest washroom. Because of the weight of the fibrous mass, a lot of stress was put on the neck of my bladder, so, once the uterus was removed, my bladder was tucked up into a sling to hold it in the proper position.
I cannot tell you how much of a difference the surgery has made!
I can now go for hours at a time without needing to go to the
bathroom and the ever present feeling of discomfort is gone!
Although I had a few complications after my surgery, the benefits
have been well worth it!
I am still taking it easy and my dearest hubby has been a
wonderful nurse, cook and cleaner! My dear mom has been such a
help with getting orders ready for mailing and my two boys have been
a blessing too!
Ok, now for the other good news! As most of you know, I recently decided to discontinue a few of the not-so-popular colours in the Wool Blend Felt collection and replace them with some pretty new ones. Well, they're finally here! The 9 new colours are: Linen, Butter, Georgia Peach, Lilac, Love Bug Blue, Aqua, Inkblot, Spearmint and Emerald.
shop. The Heart and Star collection will be available soon!
I just want to thank all of you who have sent me well wishes, thoughts and prayers, I really appreciate your thoughtfulness!
