After surgery, all I've asked for is to get my period. I couldn't even dream about more than that. My hope-ometer is off the charts. I was so worried that I would continue to have amenorrhea, and I am so so happy and thankful that my period came and so quickly after surgery. It really is like the surgery reset my cycle.
This week was a tough one for a lot of different reasons. Serious work drama, a house we wanted to rent falling through (I melted down when I told Kris Kringle what happened), and a very sad, sorrowful meltdown when we hung out with friends who brought their toddlers along on our outing unexpectedly. (I held it in until we were on our way home. I just wanted what they have so bad.) All week I wasn't sure if I was really this upset about things or if it meant something. All week I wasn't sure if my breasts really hurt a little or if I was imagining it. Every night when charting, I counted the days past what looked like peak day, and I dared to hope.
I'm so grateful for all the extra prayers I'm receiving this month because of Adopt-a-Blogger. The surge really helped, and I can't wait to pay it forward to Miss July. Mass tomorrow will be offered up in thanksgiving for today, for all those who are praying for me, and for other women who are also post-op and waiting for their period to come.
God, You are so good to me! I can't believe it! Thank you, thank you, thank you for my awesome medical team, my healing body, and your constant presence through all of this. The look on KK's face when I told him was amazing, and we are so grateful. Every sign that my body is healing and my health is changing is noticed and appreciated. Na.Pro is truly a gift from You. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. Please pass this same blessing on to other women who are in my situation, waiting for signs that their body is on the way to a new, hopeful normal as they recover from their procedures.
