Had to cancel vacation

I just found this site tonight...and I love it! I found it by doing a search for happy and hysterectomy! I am scheduled for a TAH for April 1; I have numerous fibroids, heavy periods, and because of that, I am severely anemic. I had some blood work done Tuesday prior to leaving on a one week vacation to sunny Florida, and the doctor advised me that my iron is lower than it has been (I'm taking iron supplements, so don't know where it's going) and she HIGHLY RECOMMENDED I not go far, because if I begin bleeding, I would need an emergency hysterectomy as I have no iron reserve. I asked if she considered Florida far (from New York) and of course the answer was yes...so vacation was cancelled. I was so upset...I was really looking forward to a chance to relax and not think of the upcoming surgery, but guess it wasn't meant to be. So here I am, waiting, in the 33 degree cold weather..and imagining I could be in Florida...

I love this site and will be visiting it daily. Thanks so much for all the wonderful ideas and information. It has been extremely helpful!!
