Not So Awesomectomy

I had a post written and scheduled to publish automatically today, but plans changed unexpectedly today.

Here’s my original post and what was supposed to happen…

The doctor says I have too much awesome and am in need of a partial awesomectomy.  I know what you’re thinking, how can anyone be too awesome?!  Right?!?!

Okay, so maybe I am full of beans and I’m getting beanectomy.  That’s probably closer to the truth.

Closer…but not quite there.  Ok the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth it is.

I am getting a partial hysterectomy.  Today!  In fact, I may be in surgery right this very moment.  Or in recovery all doped up, being fed ice chips by my ever-loving hubinator, Der.

My baby baking career is complete and my uterus is causing me all kinds of grief.  My kind-hearted doctor informed me that I could get the works taken out, but leave the ovaries, and that would allow me to forgo monthly misery, without going into early menopause.  I talked to some friends and family and they were all like “What are you waiting for?!”

All except Greb who said, “After 5 kids, it should just fall right out.”

So the next time you hear from me I will be sans baby incubator.  I suspect I will be up for posting by Monday or Tuesday, but have no way of knowing for sure.  Check back often, or even better subscribe.  That way you will get a friendly little email when I create a post.  The subscribe button is at the bottom of the menu on the right on this page.→→→→

Ta ta for now and wish me luck!

The uterus has left the building.

Here it is Friday the 13th (my favorite date) and I still have my uterus.

At 3:30 yesterday afternoon, the day before my surgery, after I had been drinking the prescribed liquid laxative for 5 hours. I got a call from my doc’s scheduler telling me my surgery would be cancelled unless I could get clearance from my neurologist, in the next hour and a half about my brain aneurysm.

Who!? In this world!?  Can get an appointment, with a neurologist for the same day an hour and a half before 5?!

No normal Joe-Schmoe that’s for sure!  So naturally my surgery has been nixed, for now.

I spent all month jumping through hoops.  I got pre-op blood work, an EKG, even prepaid a portion of the cost, and had a big thing with my primary care physician where she made me take my blood pressure every day, for a week, to ensure it was normal.  The whole time everyone knew about my brain aneurysm and not once did anyone mention I would need clearance from my neurologist.

I think as penance they should all have to drink that nasty tasting, gut churning, peeing out your butt, laxative crud, but I’m not bitter or anything.

So here I sit with my exhausted uterus, irked, but resigned and a little worried that the aneurysm they all assured me was no big deal, might just be a big friggin’ deal.

    Oh, Amy. I am so sorry. You poor thing. I will say a little prayer for you today. I had to have a colonoscopy 2 years ago, so I feel your pain about drinking that nasty crud.

    Hang in there, sweetie. Hugs.

  2. Thanks, Donna! In the grand scheme of things, this is no big deal. It was just a major inconvenience and irritating. It will all work out.

  3. Donna Hettlage

    Yes it will! Things always work out just fine.

    My kids are asking when I am making that Burrito Pie again! haha I want to try your zucchini dish too. 🙂

    • We actually had burrito pie last night. I never get tired of it, it’s that good! And it’s super versatile as you saw when you omitted meat. The zucchini casserole is amazing too. I don’t know how your kids will feel about ti though. My kids eat it up, but they also whine about the “green stuff” sometimes.

    OMG Amy. I will say some prayers for you. Hugs. Doucebaggery at its finest.

    It is one of the best recipes I’ve ever made. It literally took minutes to put together and was sooo amazingly delicious. My kids are pretty good about veggies. Well, at least my girl is! haha

    Praying for you.

    Hope you can get it all straightened out! Praying for you!
    And the Zucchuni Diah is amazing! My son asks for it all the time and he is not a big veggie eater….
