Photos of the Week

It's been another big week of change.  Which can be scary, but also good. 

 I turned 31, had fun celebrating with my family, and made some major health decisions.  After visiting my doc and finding out that I may have Adenomyosis in addition to Endometriosis, I'm pretty sure that hystorectomy is my best option. I need to be healthy.  I need to be able to do normal things-like sign my kid up for soccer. I have never been able to make that kind of commitment with my health problems.  They have ruled my life.  It's time to change that.

I never imagined having a hystorectomy at such a young age.  I never imagined that I would have just one shot at bearing a child of my own.  That I would only experience one pregnancy and one birth.  I will cherish that experience forever.  Morning sickness and all!  While I can't begin to describe the heartache that comes with the loss of fertility, I am certain that this is the way it is supposed to be.

  6. Difficult, yes, but not the end of motherhood, if you don't want it. My aunt had an early hys with only one child-- a girl. After several years she adopted a boy. She is nearing her eighties now, and the boy is a man who has become an adoptive parent, himself, after one biological child. Great legacy!

    1. Thanks for sharing that story with me! Yes, that is a great legacy. I don't know what we'll do in the future- we're taking it one step at a time for now, but it's something I've thought about for sure :)
