DH is Helping

I am glad your husband has finally scene the light! Mine has been pretty good through everything, he has his moments but I really can't complain to much about him. My major issue is his dear mother keeps telling him and me that this is NO big deal and I am totally overreacting and that my husband shouldn't have to take anytime off. Needless to say she has never had any problems in this area but is one of those women who have no sympathy for us women who have gyn problems! Thankfully my DH is listening to me and he took 4 weeks of leave so he could help with me and the kids. We are stationed overseas so my mom couldn't come over to stay with me.

Here's to feeling better soon!

I know a few women like this - everything's a lot of noise about nothing till it happens to them, at which point the rest of the world is supposed to rotate around their poor, suffering selves. To take an example; my auntie has got to the grand age of 80, without suffering night-cramp, a problem which has plagued me since I was a schoolgirl and which my Mum (who is Auntie's junior by many years) gets in her calves, inner thighs and fingers. Lucky, lucky Auntie. . . anyway, she thought it was a lot of fuss and nonsense till very recently, when she had an attack out of the blue, in the middle of the night. Now she says, it's horrible, excruciating, the worst pain imaginable. Fuss and nonsense eh?

Good for your DH for listening to you rather than his Mum. Any surgery on your abdomen is a big deal; when it involves the removal of a major organ, it's an even bigger one. I'm sure (I hope!) your MiL wouldn't make derogatory comments if you had to have your spleen or appendix whipped out, so why is a woman with a serious gynaecological complaint fair game?
