Fun Monday But Dreading Tuesday

Posted by miss m on Monday, December 5, 2011 @ 11:19pm in Family, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Love, Sickness and Health Issues, Work |

Normally Mondays are the day no one likes. But today, I hung out with my Mom so it was a good day. We went to the mall and shopped and browsed and tried things on and just generally had a nice time. Found a pair of capris and a pair of shorts on clearance and […]

Quick Week’s Recap (So Far)

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, November 30, 2011 @ 7:24pm in Customer Service, General Blather, Holidays, Hysterectomy, Love, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

Brief overview of this week’s events… Monday – Hematologist Hematologist appointment. Got there and told the receptionist as I was signing in that I needed to speak to someone in billing to sort out my insurance billing issue (they’re billing me out of network resulting in 100% due instead of in-network and 20% due.) I […]

Post Thanksgiving Is Busy

Posted by miss m on Saturday, November 26, 2011 @ 11:57pm in Finances, General Blather, Holidays, Hysterectomy, PhoenixFire Designs, Sickness and Health Issues |

Things are getting busy around here. First, it’s the weekend after Thanksgiving, so that means the holiday season is officially on. *chuckles* We’re trying to clean up the apartment to get ready for a tree. Problem is that we want to put it in a different area this year – in the “dining room” part […]

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 […]

Monday

Posted by miss m on Monday, November 14, 2011 @ 1:48pm in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, PhoenixFire Designs, Sickness and Health Issues |

Ok, so it’s Monday. And busy week ahead. First, the Honda. Love talked to a friend who gave a mechanic recommendation. Looked him up on Google and he’s got 10, 5-star reviews. Everyone says he’s honest and fair priced. Love’s friend has been going to him for years. So I’m waiting on AAA right now […]

Emotionally Broken – Fiances and Car Breakdown

Posted by miss m on Saturday, November 12, 2011 @ 7:59pm in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues, Travel, Walt Disney World |

Today we were on I-4 driving out to see the annual free Festival of the Masters Art Show at Downtown Disney, with plans to see the dancing Osborne Lights and fireworks afterward (just to do something fun after so long not feeling well from surgery), when the engine light came on in the car, Love […]

Five Weeks Post-Op

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, November 9, 2011 @ 11:58pm in General Blather, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

Today marks 5 weeks post-op since my hysterectomy. Things continue to progress well in terms of my healing. At least, how I feel. Next Thursday, I have my big 6 week appointment where they will let me know how things are healing internally. But, right now, all is pretty decent. The right incision is almost […]

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 […]

Belly Button Sensitivity – Normal

Posted by miss m on Thursday, November 3, 2011 @ 3:44pm in General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

My darn belly button has been so tender and sensitive. It’s just so annoying to have anything brush/rub/push/touch it right now and has been for several days. So I called my doctor’s nurse just to make sure that was ok. (You know, a normal part of healing rather than a sign something is wrong.) She […]

4 Weeks Post Hysterectomy

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, November 2, 2011 @ 1:16pm in General Blather, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

Today is 4 weeks since my surgery. It’s another benchmark in the recovery. Still no heavy lifting and I still have to take it slow and easy, but I’m allowed to do a little more than before. According to my discharge paperwork from the hospital: 4 to 6 weeks – Heavier activities – shopping, light […]

Hematology Appointment Recap

Posted by miss m on Tuesday, November 1, 2011 @ 10:16pm in General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

So the appointment went well if not as slow as ever. Got there right at 2:45pm scheduled time and left around 4:30pm. At least this time I had my Mom with me so the time went by more pleasantly since I had someone to talk to and keep me company. They drew blood and I […]

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 […]
