Or something like that. I'm not sure what it'll sound like, and thankfully, I won't be awake to hear it. Yes, folks, I am officially going to be the proud recipient of a hysterectomy! But wait! That's not all! For just...Oh, wait. Yeah, that's all. ;) Come November, I get to go in and let them root around a bit and remove my fibroid-infused baby-making bits which I do not need, leaving the bits that actually are currently helpful. I should be down and out for about two weeks, then back to normal. I'm not terribly sure how I feel about it. I suspect some of my current lightheartedness is whistling in the dark, and that further less fun-happy emotions are in store, but I'll let it all happen as it does. The doctor today was utterly spectacular, and spent at least a full 1/2 hour discussing options and implications with me. Thankfully, at my age, childbearing is no longer a big deal, and she didn't even try to suggest I might change my mind. Plus she'll be doing the surgery herself, which is also comforting.

In happier news, I am now officially a member of the Austin Civic Chorus! I start singing with them next Monday night! WOOT!

Yay for hysterectomy...? Yes? It's a much simpler surgery than it used to be - my mother in law bounced back from hers so quickly she was bored and we had to stop her from doing things she shouldn't. And you'll feel better too, no more evil fibroids! Plus you get fun pain meds. :)

See, that's what my school secretary was saying today about the pain meds. She also made lots of helpful comments about putting my feet up, drinking margaritas, and having my husband fetch and run for me. I -love- my school's admin team. :)

Thoughts and prayers headed your way for the surgery. Should solve quite a few problems. A co-worker had one awhile back because of a tumor. She's so much herself again. Yeah, I know. Sounds odd.

Anyway, a million congrats on the choir slot.

You da SINGER!!

Awwww! Just so you know, just seeing your name is like a warm fuzzy for me. What is it about you and your sister, huh? I swear, some people just thinking about them feels like I've gotten a hug. :)
