My email inbox is sitting in the hundreds right now. I saw many emails in there from blog friends (thank you!) so I thought it’d be good to do a little update.
While I had planned to just take Tuesday and Wednesday off due to last week’s surgery I actually ended up taking an entire week off of everything. (Except for a little comment/email responding on Monday.) I haven’t done that in almost three years!
I actually think it was just what I needed.
Surgery Went Well
The procedure on Tuesday went well. The doctor went over all of the previous reports with me. While she had initially done a biopsy of four spots on my cervix three of them came back as absolutely nothing. That fourth spot was removed.
While this was the second time I’ve had this done I had a slightly different experience this time-around. Nothing was really painful. I had a few gross side effects. But mostly I just felt sore paired with what felt like bad period cramps.
But for some reason or another I felt drained. Like, completely drained.
The vast majority of Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday were spent laying on the couch and either sleeping or watching TV, depending upon what the girls were doing or who they were with.
I don’t know if it was surgery related or just the fact that I had been worrying/stressing so much and that finally caught up with me. I couldn’t make myself do anything but just lay on the couch, which is the complete opposite of my regular personality. I normally can’t stand to sit in a messy house or not mark ten things off my to-do list, but this past week it didn’t bother me one single bit.
As a result my house is a train wreck and it’s going to take a while to get back to inbox zero but it was well worth it.
Then oddly enough, I woke up Saturday morning feeling much better. Now it feels good to be back online!
I think my week of no technology did wonders for me.
The doctor sent in the spot she removed for further testing – but since it’s no longer inside of me all is well and I’m feeling really good.
I just wanted to tell you all that I very, very much appreciate all of your prayers, emails, and comments. I love that I feel like I have my best friends through this blog and I appreciate you!
P.S. I’m starting Whole 30 today. Has anyone tried this? And if so how’d you feel after going through with the program?
