I admit I am feeling a bit of cold feet over the fact I will be having surgery in November. The surgery will be a (must have) hysterectomy and (want so badly) tummy tuck.
I just found out today it's all going to happen for me Yippee! I am having to pay for the tummy tuck myself but it's a reduced price due to the hysterectomy surgery happening too.
The tummy tuck is the only bright spot to not being able to really work out for 8 weeks . I will only be able to walk on flat surface after a couple of weeks. I honestly and terrified to not workout. But my eating is pretty solid and I am not scared over that.
But the cold feet is that I almost felt when I told my Mom she was alittle jealous and discounted the fact I have worked my butt off to get here. I have had 6 c sections and have hanging loose skin (13-15 pounds worth). I am thrilled but gun shy to tell friends and family because the feeling like I am somehow cheating .
It's like a dream come true but I know it will be a large sacrifice for my husband who will have to do alot more than usual. I am going to hire some help with the kids and house but things will still fall on his shoulders. You can bet my Christmas shopping will be done online and I am already thinking on how I will handle the Christmas decorating this year. It may seem silly but being out of commission is going to throw a HUGE monkey wrench in my lifestyle. But it will be so worth it in the end!
