#1 question asked by people who read my blog but have resorted to email because I don’t post enough: My surgery is now scheduled for 2/11, I’ll be off of work 4-6 weeks. Putting off the surgery has had some drawbacks in the form of fatigue and pain, and the endometriosis perhaps has spread to other organs, but that wasn’t the fault of the few extra months. The Dr. possibly will have me not take any hormones after surgery for a while, so I’ll go into instant full-blown menopause (for the third time) to kill off all the rogue endometrial cells in random places in my body. I’m scared about that because it made me (more of a) screaming, crying, hot-flashing psychopath.
I watched the inauguration at work on some TVs they hooked up for the employees in the warehouse. I was happy and do hope as a nation we do begin to take more responsibility for the wide-ranging impact of our actions, but try to I’ll spare you my thoughts beyond that. Shauna sent me Dr. Laura’s comments, I can’t say I’ve heard her (ever), but I saw some things I agreed with. I tried really hard today to avoid the sour grapes of people and bloggers and journalists who didn’t vote for him. I know if today was McCain’s day, I would have watched and been proud of our country and can’t understand why that’s so hard for some. But, I’ve really tried to let go of such thinking.
Anyway, I’m very tired, but we are very blessed. Strangely, I’m looking forward to surgery because it means I can lie down.
