Surgery Date!


Hi everyone (who still reads my blog)!

Sorry for the quietness but in between running my daughter to school and back, and after school activities, and in between dealing with health issues and another iron transfusion I am finally here for a little minute.  I went to see the specialist about 4 weeks ago now and was put in line for surgery next Tuesday.  I have to fast from midnight and wont have surgery until after 12pm but I am sure my nerves will be a wreck by then.  Having a hysterectomy is crucial for my health as the time between my iron transfusions was only 3 months and my body had depleted it all in that time sending my iron levels down to a 2 again.  I had a horrible side effect a few hours later where every muscle in my body ached and I couldnt sleep from the pain so after this operation I am hoping that I have good pain medication with an open cut surgery.  I have been knitting lots of things but I will post them after surgery when I am feeling a lot better.  I wont be able to drive for about 4-6 weeks but I will be able to sit and knit I hope.  I know I am going to get bored but being on the computer and watching my favourite knitting podcasts and talking to my knitting friends will help me along.

Next time I speak to you I should have lots of FO's to show you all.

Take care

Sue

Take it from someone who knows - you will soon feel much better. Take it easy and knit on girl.

Good Luck Sue -- you'll probably look back on surgery day as one of the best days of your life!

All the best Sue and I am sure you will notice a big difference. It may take a few months till you really recuperate, but one morning you will probably wake up and be surprised how great you feel. I know many who have had this and I also did but after a different operation to hysterectomy.

I hope Isabelle will be a helot to you, especially in the beginning.
