PhoenixFire Designs Updates

Posted by miss m on Saturday, December 3, 2011 @ 11:33am in Finances, General Blather, PhoenixFire Designs, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

Love’s doing well, sore but healing. What’s not doing so great is the finances since we had to spend $187 Thursday for the surgery that no one told us about ahead of time. Part of that money was earmarked for our past-due power bill but now…ugh. So, I’ve been hard at work trying to get […]

The Cost of A Hysterectomy in America

Posted by miss m on Tuesday, November 22, 2011 @ 11:40pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

All of my bills have been coming in lately. But one of them really drives home just how expensive surgery truly is and why for people without insurance, things like this are utterly impossible to obtain. And I wanted to share it to help illustrate why I support Health Care Reform. This is why I […]

Still Sick, Medical Bills & Day Job Update

So I’m still dealing with the cold that I woke up with out of nowhere on Saturday. My poor lips are all cracked and split, my nose is red and scaly and now everything is turning to chest congestion so I’ve added coughing up nasty crap to my runny nose. Super fun and oh so […]

Good Day Sunshine

Posted by miss m on Thursday, November 17, 2011 @ 8:59pm in General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

I had my 6-week post-op appointment today. The doc came in the room and said, “Hello Sunshine!” 🙂 Had my exam and he said everything is perfect. No problems, everything is healing nicely. I am off restrictions and unless I have any problems, I don’t have to go back until next June for my regular […]

6 Week Post Op Hysterectomy

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, November 16, 2011 @ 2:03pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

Today is 6 weeks from surgery. Tomorrow I have my 6-week appointment with my doctor to see how I’m healing up. It’s a big stage in the healing since, if all is well, I get a lot more restrictions lifted and can get back to almost normal activities. Even though at 6 weeks you are […]

Quiet Weekend

Posted by miss m on Sunday, November 6, 2011 @ 11:29pm in Family, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Movies, Sickness and Health Issues, Weather |

Had a pretty laid-back, quiet weekend. Saturday, we slept in and had some little errands to run like dropping off the recycling and getting cat food. We rented Thor for $1 at the Blockbuster Express kiosk in the store so we watched that Saturday evening. It was pretty good. Sunday, I agreed to get up […]

3 Weeks Post Op

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, October 26, 2011 @ 1:56pm in General Blather, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

Ok, I’m probably the only one excited about this, but today, three weeks post hysterectomy, all of my incisions are now scab-free and looking awesome!! I just got out of the shower were the belly button incision (by far the ugliest and largest of the cuts) shed it’s scab! I have a {quasi-normal} belly button […]

Day 16 Post Op And Feeling Fine

Posted by miss m on Friday, October 21, 2011 @ 12:44pm in General Blather, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

I’m happy to say my two-week post hysterectomy day came and went and brought with it a nice relief from pain. My pain has changed from an all-encompassing deep ache to a more shallow general soreness. It’s much easier managed with ibuprofen and I went the entire day yesterday without a single painkiller. Just two […]

Post Op Days 12 and 13

Posted by miss m on Tuesday, October 18, 2011 @ 7:41pm in General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

I know. I need to come up with better titles for these things. Sadly, pretty much all of my life right now is centered around healing from my surgery. So there’s not much to talk about that isn’t healing posts. LOL Probably getting boring. Sorry about that. Yesterday (day 12) my sister came over and […]

Post Hysterectomy Days 10 and 11

Posted by miss m on Sunday, October 16, 2011 @ 11:04pm in General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

This weekend marked days 10 and 11 of my healing and recovery from my hysterectomy. Much remains the same. I’m still dealing with deep aches and pains around the incision sites (especially the one on the left which my doctor told me would be the one that hurt the most.) I’m begrudgingly still taking some […]

Post-Hysterectomy Day 9

Posted by miss m on Friday, October 14, 2011 @ 4:59pm in General Blather, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

Had a hard time getting to sleep last night. Wound up being awake until like 2am. I haven’t been up past about midnight since this all started. I was so exhausted from the outing to the doctor yesterday and I didn’t take a nap when I got home or anything but for some reason, I […]

1st Post Op Appointment

Posted by miss m on Thursday, October 13, 2011 @ 4:33pm in General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

Met with my doctor today for my first post hysterectomy appointment. I last saw him a week ago when I he checked on me in the hospital and cleared me for discharge. Everything is going fine, he took a look at my belly and laughed at me for my linty incisions. I told him I […]
