Valid Violation

Day 325 in my journey to Mickey

Today’s plan was to go back for a post-op checkup.   I had to have my first internal pelvic check since my hysterectomy.  Man!  I hate those things!  It was not at all painful, but you just feel so violated when it’s over.  Don’t get me wrong; my doctor is great.  She is very gentle and has wonderful bedside manner.  But there is just no way to be truly relaxed when you have a speculum inserted.  Argh!  Anyway everything looks pretty good, I’m told.  Now I have to go back every 3 months for the next two years.  Then I have to go every 6 months for the following three years.  Then if all is well after five years, they say I am healed.

However, there were some odd irregularities in my cancer cells, so my oncologist wants me to see a genetics specialist to have some tests done.  Man!  I don’t think I can do it right now.  I’m still to worn out, still too beat up.  I need some time away.  Maybe after I retire at the end of this year, I’ll go.  I just can’t face more medical stuff right now.

So that’s what I did today to be a healthier me for our trip to Florida.  Meet you at the Kingdom!

  1. ‘Glad for the update Donna. Your weariness of future Dr visits caused me to reflect on one of my favorite slogans… ‘Just for Today”. ….Maybe tomorrow will bring about a different outlook. But just for today I will….

    Remember the days when I was so exhausted with marital troubles and I’d say…jjust for today I will be married!!!! ? That’s all I could wrap my brain around was one measly day LOL!!!! And now look, hey?! So dear sister-in-love, continue to rest in today. Your Heavenly Father has ‘got your back’!
