I don’t know what it is lately, but the last few days, I’ve just been extremely tired, fatigued and just generally run down. I almost feel like I’m getting sick again but that doesn’t make sense and I don’t really think I am, but it’s that kind of general body ache/malaise where you have no energy for anything.
So I really haven’t done much this week because I just don’t feel well or feel up to anything.
I didn’t hear from the nurse yesterday. (Or so far today yet either.) But she was off Monday and Tuesday and since I left her a message saying I wanted to go with the 5th, she probably isn’t as worried about getting back to me as quickly as if we were doing it the 21st. So I’m still waiting for confirmation of the 5th as the date, plus I’m waiting to find out exactly how to proceed, what pre-op appointments I need and such. I also have a dozen questions in my notebook so far to ask. (I’ve been writing down questions as they come to me so I won’t forget to cover all info in a notebook I bought and I try to keep it with me so I can keep adding to it as needed. Hey, this is major surgery; I have questions about details!)
It’s been a very slow week at the shop and I’m getting a little nervous about income and the bills and such while I’m in recovery. I’d feel a lot better if I could get a little more tucked away in the PayPal account to help ensure we have money for gas, food, etc. in the coming weeks. Things seem to have stalled a little and it has me worried. Money is tight right now and I still have bills for this month I haven’t paid and I’m not sure where the funds are going to come from, especially if I don’t start getting some sales. I worry a lot about money these days.
I’m also getting notices from the ER stay that they’re getting ready to put me in collections. The $1,200 ER doctor bill and the $250 radiology bill seem to be the most aggressive. I’ve tried calling and left a message but no one’s calling me back. That too has me worried a lot. (A lot.)
So anyway, that’s this week. Just kinda tired and not feeling very well, hence the quiet on the blog. Hopefully, I’ll start feeling better soon. Don’t have much time left before I’ll be feeling like absolute crap from the surgery, so I rather not spend this time feeling crappy too, you know?

Hysterectomy FundOctober 2013 Update: Happy 2 Year Anniversary!! I'm amazed at how different life is two years later. Though the hardest thing I've ever been through in my life, I've grown so much as a result of having overcome such terrifying and daunting medical issues. In a weird way, I'm better for having experienced these hardships. I'm more sure of myself these days and more confident I can face life's challenges better.
I have tried to turn this medical challenge into an opportunity and using this as a means to push forward with my small jewelry business and as a way to support myself again.
Your continued support is appreciated right now and even links to my shop are appreciated. Thank you to everyone who's helped and spread the word. All of you helped make it possible for me to be here and healthy.
