Recovering From Surgery

Hello Everyone,

It’s been a while since I posted something that wasn’t about a diy or tutorial. Well, I have some recovery time here that will hinder my creating for a while. So I guess I will keep you all updated on what’s going on with me outside of creating.

I wanna say for the last 9 months off and on I have been dealing with some severe abdominal pain. Over the last two months, I have been dealing with some serious pain, vomiting, and diarrhea. Long story short over time it got really bad and on Friday May 15, 2020 I had Colectomy Surgery due to a mass found in my colon. I spent 8 days in the hospital which was a nightmare being away from my family for so many days. You know they say there is no worse pain you will ever go through than childbirth. Well, I have had 7 children vaginally and I would rather have 2 more babies than deal with this pain I am dealing with right now.

Anyway, prior to 2:41 pm today May 26, 2020 we were still waiting on pathology results. Actually, my surgeon called as I started typing this. I do have the results and I actually am not going to post them right now because we haven’t talked to the children about them just yet. Not to mention I have 4 doctors appointments coming up and I want to assess what each one has to say. None of this is easy and I don’t even know if this makes sense as I’m typing it. I just wanted all of you to know how things were going and where I have been.

Recovering from surgery…

Happy Valentine’s Day first and foremost.

So I had my surgery on Friday and I must say when I came home. I was in so much pain I wanted to scream to the high heavens. Knowing that this would have only made things worse, I didn’t. I tried my best to sleep on Friday but my lovely children were so concerned about my well-being I barely got any sleep. I think they were just nervous. My sweet precious children. My daughter of course didn’t want to leave my site and has been doing so much to make me comfortable. Going as far as even following me to the bathroom. I had to put an end to that yesterday. Mama needs her privacy. So how am I feeling today. Well I made the mistake of going down my stairs, what was I thinking? Big mistake is what it was. First off when you have any kind of surgery done to your inside lady parts and the doctors tell you to take it easy. You seriously need to listen. Today is not only Valentine’s Day. It is also my 3rd child’s birthday. So, I wanted to go in the basement to get the presents I had for him. Yes I came from my upstairs bedroom, to the second floor then down to my basement. Two days from surgery. I’ll tell you one thing. I will not be doing that again. Rest means rest. Though being still and not being able to cook or clean is driving me insane, the pain I am feeling is more overbearing than I can take. Therefore, for the first time in my life I must learn to sit still and allow others to help me. Hopefully the next time I post, I will be back to my old self. Up sewing, crafting, blogging, vlogging and most of all back to taking care of my family. Till next time guys and gals…
