I had a little health setback for awhile but I'm on the mend. To sum up the last three months... Viral Pneumonia, Bacterial Pneumonia, UTI, Kidney Infection, Sepsis. That all equals three hospitalizations, two stays in the ICU and two surgeries. The good news in all this is the doctors discovered a huge mass in my abdomen that was causing all this trouble.
So now after five hours of surgery the mass is gone, the uterus is gone, a few other minor parts are gone, and I'm on the road to recovery!
I'm excited to get back to the world of blogging!
So what lessons have I learned through all of this? Mostly gratitude. I've been very blessed in my life with all the important things, great family, great friends, a testimony of my Savior. But I've had the opportunity to be even more grateful for all of the above. I had my prayers answered, had friends drop and do whatever they could to help (including meals, calls, driving my kids everywhere, flowers, notes, etc), my family being there for me one hundred percent. Yes, I am an incredibly blessed woman to be surrounded by such love.
So, has it been hard? Yes! Has it been worth it? Oh, yes!
