I saw the Dr on Monday, for my last post op visit. She checked my incision, did a pelvic exam and said everything is great. I then told her I was ready to go back to work. She asks me to wait until 11/7 which would be 4 weeks since the surgery. She also requested that I stay away from lifting until I've reach the 8 week mark. Some times I forget the lifting part because I'm feeling so good. While visiting a friend, her young child ran to me and right before I was going to lift him in the air, I remembered that I wasn't supposed to lift.

I'm applying cocoa butter to my incision, you can barely see it; it's healing nicely. During my doc visit, I asked the Doc what was left to heal, she goes, "your inside". Something, I didn't understand is heavy lifting could result in a hernia. I still imagine in my head, what was done to me. Like, I think about what my inside looks like, how it was cut open. Imagine, if you will, how {where} each of your organs are placed. Stuff like that fascinates me. It's one of the reasons I asked to see pictures of my uterus once it was removed. I still look at the pictures daily.

Most days, I'm still so called "relaxing", still wearing t-shirts and sweats. I can't wait for work Monday, so I can dress up because I miss it.

oh yeah, I lost 10 pounds

My waist feels different; I can't wait to see how my clothes will fit me.

thanks for the love everyone...
