Getting back to normal

I have been counting my blessings these last 2 weeks.  So many things have happened. But just to keep it short and sweet. I am on the mend and feeling oh so much better.
One of the greatest words i heard was there is no cancer.
What a huge blessing.
I want to thank all my wonderful friends who have left comments and to those who have helped me through these long days. It's not over yet but soon i will be back to normal whatever normal is. :)
I even feel like making something crafty today so that must mean something right.
I will post a picture soon.
Thanks again for all your prayers and sweet words of encouragement.
I love you all.
Later gaters

To my joy and surprise, i was given another blog award. This blog was given to me by
isn't that sweet. I want to thank her for giving me a boost through such a hard time.  Thank you Cindy.
One of the provisions of receiving this award is that I must list 3 things about myself that make me unique.
1. I love everyone. I really mean that. I try to find the good in everyone and not look at what is wrong or their appearance or their weakness's or downfalls.
2. I love to write poetry. Not that i'm really any good at it. But i did get a poem published.
3. I find it hard to write about myself and look for my good qualities. This is a good test for me.

Thanks for stopping by.
Any comments are greatly appreciated.

A very difficult week

It has been a very difficult week. After surgery i felt pretty good. Must have been those happy juices they were giving me at the hospital. The Dr. had a nice surprise when he opened me up. Tons of scar tissue from a tubular ligation over 20 years earlier. The scar tissue was so bad it had attached to the bowl and everything else he was to work on. At this point i would just like to say THANK HEAVENS for a wonderful Dr. He was actually delighted in the surprise and carefully removed all scar tissue which took over an hour and then proceeded to the complete Hysterectomy.  He said other than the surgery taking longer than he had expected that everything went fine and that he could not see any cancer. However he needed to send in the tissue for tests.  He came in  the next day and gave me the good news. Boy was i relieved.  I came home and started on my long journey of pain and healing. I did not think it would get so bad at times. At other times, like now i feel pretty good. I just hope the good times start getting longer and longer.  It is so hard to take all the medications that have been prescribed and not get sick from them. ONE DAY AT A TIME! right.
I have had some wonderful friends and family that have taken care of me and brought in meals and just helped comfort and encourage. I love them dearly but most of all i love my dear husband who sits by my side through all the difficult times that no one else sees. He is truly an angel sent from Heaven and i thank my Heavenly Father for him daily.
On to recovery and the blessings i have been given.

Today i go see the Dr. for PreOp instructions and advice.
Tomorrow at 9:15 i will have a hysterectomy.
Part of me wants to cry the other rejoice. and say to myself it never worked right anyway.
No biological children of my own.
But then the other side of me is grateful for the tender mercies of my Heavenly Father who blessed me with 2 beautiful daughters who fill my heart with overflowing. A wonderful dear husband who loves and supports me.
So many tears.
Fighting to be strong and brave.
Putting my trust in my Heavenly Father.
Feeling the love of friends around me.
That is the sweetness of it all. Seeing the love of others and wishing i could be as good as they are.

Until i return..............

Happy New Year

I had a very nice blessing by my Dear Husband and Brother today.
I'm grateful for the Priesthood in my home.
Surgery on Tuesday.
Lots to think about.
I'm grateful for my Savior and the knowledge i have that the gospel is true.
The peace it brings in times of struggle and fear.
I'm especially grateful for family and friends that are all so kind and supportive.
It is times like this that bring us closer and make us search deeper the truths of life and Eternity.
