countdown...17 days!!!

Hi everyone!
Sounds like you are all doing the same things I am, making lists, etc. I have so many lists made its crazy!
I had my LAST PERIOD this weekend!!!Since my ablation i hardly bleed, but i still hurt really bad, especially in my back and have to pee all the time.
My sister tells me i have 3 weeks off, so I'm going into this with a really positive attitude that everything will go well and i'll bounce back quickly(i hope).Everyone tells me that i will feel so much better when this is over with.
I have concert tickets for a Christian group i really like-Casting Crowns on April 19th so I hope I'll be able to go.I've had the tickets for months and dont't want to lose the money.
Well, gotta go and work on a list!!

beautifulbella, I LOVE the idea of counting down 'events' with a uterus...hmmm, ok, let's see...there's one more haircut with a uterus, one more eyebrow and leg wax with a uterus, two more kickboxing classes with a uterus (If I can keep the cramping and bleeding at bay), hmmm, what else, oh, one more pedicure with a uterus,

Ok, my surgery is next Monday (3/17), I'm estimating my last meal will be Sunday dinner, so that's 20 more meals and 13 more snacks with a uterus :-)

17 days!! Can you believe it? I got my room decluttered last night. I have some finishing touches to do, but it is SO much better than before, so I feel good about that. I am so excited, just over two weeks!!! If the last two weeks are any indication, the time is going to fly!!! I hope the recovery time goes as fast (maybe not - no work, no kids, everyone taking care of ME....let me rethink that one)

You are so lucky!! I LOVE Casting Crowns!!! The Alter and the Door is one of my favorite CDS. And you'll be going two days before my birthday!!! I'll definitely want to hear about the concert. I am hoping I am feeling well enough to drive for 3 hours that weekend. I think I'm going to take my kids to the dells to celebrate my birthday. Of course, I won't be swimming, but they would LOVE it. I'm going to wait on that one and not book it until that week, just to make sure.

Well, only 9 more days of work with a uterus. (I'm on spring break from 3/21 until well, until I go back from the surgery!) I am meeting with my doctor tomorrow and I am looking forward to that!!

Girls, have a GREAT day!!

I have a bunch of lists too. Mine are details about my medical history and allergies and insurance numbers and social security numbers of me and my husband. I'm all ready for the pre op phone calls from the hospital to register me.

I also need to declutter my bedroom. Well I'll get rid of the clutter and add different clutter like lots of bottled water and healthy snacks,

Annessa, That will be so nice when you find out what surgery you will be having tomorrow. Be sure to let us know.

15 days & counting. I wake up every day with "in ... days I'll be.." I think my uterus knowsx what's going on though because the last week has been horrible. But.... it's almost over.

Good luck to all of you!

Wooo, hoooo 17 more days until no more !

I have sooo much to do at work. They want me to plan Bring Your Child to Work Day for our facility and then I am moving my office to another building. Ahhhhhh, on top of what I have to do at home. I am not ashamed to say I am definitely looking forward to six weeks off

Has anyone started packing their bags early? I am so tempted to pack mine but I am going to wait at least until the weekend before.

Have a great day everyone! One more day down

Annette - I started packing mine yesterday! I put in my new robe, my new jammies, my favorite slippers and my travel shower stuff. I am not sure about the jammies though. I think the might not be huge enough for me. I like my pj's really big and when I looked at them yesterday, I just wasn't sure. I might have to try them out tonight. I also can't decide if I want to pack clothes to come home in or where to the castle what I want to come home in to save the trouble. I still have to go shopping for new undies. I will buy a couple of big "grannies" but I am also going to buy myself all new regulars as well - for the new me!!! I don't think I'm going to bring much more than that. If I come across something I need, I can always ask one of my friends to get it for me.

Let me know what you are thinking of bringing.

PS - My counselor suggested that I pack early so I don't stress about that part of the whole deal. It was a good idea!!!
