Well, my hyster.oscopy and polyect.omy went off ok today.  I'm home now and recovering fine.  My mom was unable to take me to the appointment because my sister in law, who is 32ish weeks pregnant with plac.enta pre.via, was rushed to the hospital with bleeding.  My parents drove out there at 11 at night to pick up my 4 1/2 year old niece to bring over for the night.  So, my sister came with me to the appointment.

The procedure itself was a breeze.  I was pretty much awake for it, although not making much sense.  I was able to watch on the screen, which was pretty cool.  I saw Dr. B. take out one polyp.  He said there were a few others, but they were small and he couldn't even grab them with the grabber dealio. 

My sister took me home to my mom's so I could rest for a while.  My niece was there, and is just so adorable.  We had lunch, and she told us her secrets.  Later, she was telling me about one of her dreams about little princesses and knights and fairy godmothers.  I asked he who I was in her dream, and she said I was the mommy of the little princesses.  When I was getting ready to leave, she said that it made her sad because I reminded her of her mommy.  Broke my heart a little bit - so cute.

So, I'm fine.  I have a killer headache and some cramps.  And, I'm annoyed that I'll potentially have bleeding for 2 to 3 weeks.  I'm probably going to bed early tonight and hope to be back on my game tomorrow.  I've kind of gone on a food bender the past two days, so I need to get back on track.  In my defense, today I don't care.  I am eating what is easy to put together.

My sister-in-law is doing ok.  They released her from the hospital and they are heading home.  She isn't on bedrest yet -although for her own sake, I wish the doctor would do so.  She isn't good at "taking it easy."

Thanks for all your support everyone!


  1. Glad to hear you are doing ok :) I had bleeding for like a day and then spotting for a couple of days... it's no biggie, I wouldn't worry about it.

    the best thing about this procedure is less than 2 months later I was pregnant!!

  2. Glad that the procedure went well and I hope you recover fully and quickly.

    I've been doing stuff at Pulling Down the Moon since it opened (yoga, acupuncture and the nutrition). I highly recommend!

  3. Glad to hear things went well for you.

    I know what you mean about your sister in law. My cousin is 31 weeks pregnant with placenta previa and probably should be on bedrest, too!

  4. Glad to hear that you're doing OK!

  5. I'm glad the procedure went well. It was cool that you got to watch. Aren't little girls just the sweetest? It's nice to have them around to make us smile. I hope your SIL doesn't get any worse...bedrest would be no fun at all.

  6. Delighted it went well! And you're right in treating yourself a bit, you'll be back on the straight and narrow on monday! Much love, Fran
