I know I've been more of a lurker than a poster for the last few months, probably longer.
I've been going through some medical issues of my own.
Tomorrow morning I will be headed for Highland Hospital for a complete hysterectomy. Hopefully it will be the LAVH w/BSO support. I'm not going to go into details here (you're welcome Dartman).
There is a good chance something may turn up. I have a complex ovarian cyst and a few other special surprises that the tests have turned up. The CA-125 blood test came back too elevated, so my surgeon has decided to find the cause. Hopefully it'll be one of the organs removed tomorrow morning that's causing this. Unfortunately, nothing showed up on the x-rays, mri's etc to explain it.
I got to spend today fasting and drinking that yummy bowel preparation stuff. Mmmm. Mmmmm. I feel so clean. I'm thinking of making this a regular Sunday habit. NOT.
I have tried to get back into the swing of the board, but my mind wanders and you know how when something is off at home where to save a few bucks just doesn't seem quite so important. I'm sure I'll be fine, but I don't know how long I'll be away. If everthing goes as planned, surgery is about 45 minutes and I'll be home Wed AM, all cozy with my dog and my computer. If something gets found when I'm in the operating room, it will delay plans. Surgery can last up to and over 5 hours and I could just ruin my bikini line with the scar!
Anyhow. If I'm not on for a while, and some of you notice and wonder, this is why.
You guys take care of yourselves. And Christine, I saw one of your posts in my e-mail that I didn't remember to answer, but it just came back to me.
You are far from an ugly mother of two tweens that no one would want to date. You were having a great streak there at one time, proving your desirability. I'm hazarding a guess that this final divorce decree is a lot harder on you than you thought it was going to be. Give yourself a break from feeling lonely, others' expectations now that you're 'free' - enjoy your tweens, enjoy your time alone when the kids are with their Dad. Find yourself, your hobbies, your personal interests and loves. The rest will follow. You come across as a very caring woman and I personally think you need to care for yourself now. <jumping off the soapbox here>
Talk to you all soon.
Keep 'em in line Magie.
Kelly - keep Magie in line!
