Default Knowing what's important...

I am five days post-op from my hysterectomy. Everything went very smoothly! I am sore, but able to keep my pain under control. I am following doctor's orders and not doing too much too soon. I am surrounded by people that love and care for me.....and most importantly, the pathology report shows I do NOT have cancer!!

The only bit of bad news: I was denied Short Term Disability Insurance due to the fact that I do not meet the height/weight ratio....in other words, I'm undertall...LOL

Oh well, I'd rather be cancer free than have lots of $$$....
One day at a time is more than just a saying.....
First goal: Back under 300!

So sorry about the short term disability.

I actually originally typed in what I THOUGHT was the acronym, but it sure sounded BAD ( as in: sorry about the STD...)
Thought I'd rephrase that...

Anyways, take care of yourself. Take in all the positive energy around you, and we are all so HAPPY that you are healthy...

It's great to hear your surgery went well and especially that you are cancer free. I can't even begin to imagine the stress relief that must be. Best wishes for a speedy and uneventful recovery!

It's not that some people have willpower and some don't. It's that some people are ready to change and others are not.
