This is FUNNY!

This has little to do with fears but my husband came home with this little bit of info for me today.
My husband told his boss of my upcoming surgery and of some of the cancer worries we are facing, so that his boss would be prepped for my dh to take a few days off. My dh's boss's reply was this,"Oh, a hysterectomy is no big deal. They go in thru the vagina (that got me a chuckle first off just imagining my dh and his boss talking about vaginas using the word vagina and somewhat referencing mine :-}) and it's not like the old days. My wife had one and she was back to work the next day, but she's a trauma center nurse, so it was probably easier for her." Okay, so at first I laughed at the audacity of the whole thing, then i was kind of mad, then i came to the conclusion that he doesn't want my dh missing work. Finally I concluded that he is confused about some procedure his wife had done vs. when she actually had her hysterectomy.
Just thought I would share that piece of choice wisdom from my dh's male boss.
Hope it brought a chuckle to you...

Now isn't that just typical of a male? No clues at all. Still, you've got to laugh. I can well understand how you went through the myriad of emotions that you did, and I think you figured it all out perfectly in the end. Can you imagine a trauma centre nurse going back to work after a hyst the previous day....the mind boggles!

All the very best for your June 6 surgery.
