 We made it to 2015. We all rock! It was a rough last half of the year for me, but I'm doing so much better now. Yay! It took me more than two months to fully recover from my blood loss. I was weak and dizzy for a long time, and my short term memory sucked. Which sucked. I could literally forget something three seconds after I thought about it. For example, I could look at a phone number on a piece of paper, turn to dial it into the phone, and forget it before I could dial it. Argh! It made working an exercise in frustration, but the worst has passed in that regard, I think.

I'm getting my traitorous uterus (and cervix) removed on Feb 6, and I'm excited as heck about it. No more scary periods, no more fibroids from hell. I had to get a gigantic shot of Lupron to shrink my uterus by Feb to better the odds that laproscopic surgery will be doable, which will make my recovery much easier. Ha ha, remember when my LJ was about sexy sex? Sigh. Anyway, the Lupron cost $1100. Damn, son! The people who helped me at the pharmacy said it was the most expensive RX they'd ever filled. Lucky me!

I'm going to stop there, because I'm really hoping to post way more often with all my news. I miss interacting with you guys (whoever is still here, that is). LJ's glory days may be over, but we survivors need to stick together. xoxoxoxo

Thanks! I was thinking of you because I was going to get an ablation like you did, until they got a look at my giganto, fibroid-riddled uterus via ultrasound. I'm glad to be rid of it once and for all, yo.

Best not to push the button on public transit, tho.

It's so good to see you! And your uterus, for another month before it sails into the west.

We both need to post more. We should have a pact.

Aw, I think about you all the time. So yes, we should make a blood pact to post way more often. I will...scan and email my pricked finger for you to rub. \0/

I JUST thought of you yesterday wondering how you were doing! Checked your LJ and everything to see if I missed an update. So if I subliminally encouraged you to post, I wish I could also subliminally encourage people to send me large sums of money with no strings attached. But if not money, then an update by you is good, too, SO - best of luck with the surgery! I am wishing you the joy of being fully unencumbered by nasty lady parts and hormonal badness. I lurk quite a bit around here so please keep posting and I'll keep lurking and maybe occasionally commenting ;) Happy 2015!!

OMG if you can subliminally make me do things, can you please make me do sit ups and floss my teeth every day???

It's wonderful to see you, and I will try to post more often just in case you're here!

I'm still here! I'm still here! *bounces*

So glad you got over the worst, from the sound of it, and a Happy New Year!

I wish you all the best for your operationsurgery. *big big hugs*

eta: surgery is the English word - operation is actually the German word for it. *g*
