Funny for the day.

Before my Hysterectomy a nurse called me to go over my pre-op info.

She asked me, “Mrs. Lynn, in your own words can you tell me the procedure you will be having?”

Being a pet sitter, I couldn’t resist saying,

“As a dog walker, I will be getting spayed today!”

She laughed so hard, said I made her day!

Then my friend got me this shirt.

My story:

27 years ago  I met my husband at a stoplight.❤️

I am 45, went through 6 rounds of In-Vitro and we were blessed after 9 years with one awesome son who is off to college.

Talk about hormonal roller coaster!

After years of cysts on my ovaries, bowel obstructions and just dealing with a Hemmorragic cyst for 2 years , I had a hysterectomy on Monday.

I have one ovary left and that’s it.

My doctor used the new Davinci Robot  and I can tell already my recovery is going to be quick and great!

I have been showered with love, support, gifts which include chocolate, magazines and this shirt from my dear friend Janet.

Thanks for going through all these changes with me!❤️

HotFlashDaily.com was created in the spirit of making every day your very best, even when you just don’t feel like it.

The site was conceived and built through the combined efforts of contributing bloggers, technicians, and impassioned women who believe the way we treat ourselves is a direct reflection of how we feel about ourselves.

We’re looking for true short stories for the website, and perhaps for inclusion in an e-book, from women who want to tell others about their experiences with peri-menopause, menopause, and beyond. We’re looking for experiences, ups/downs/unexpected highs and lows, sticky situations, “what I wish I’d known”, “what I’d tell my younger self”.. you name it!

Submissions should be first-person posts written in a blogging, editorial, or columnist style WITHOUT commercial links.
