Friday Favorites: The week I had surgery

Hey friends. Happy Friday!

This week has been a little different than most.

On Monday, I had surgery.

A few years ago, I found out that I had a uterine fibroid. . . a benign growth in the uterus. And over the past few years, it’s been causing some problems. So, I finally decided to have it removed. The surgery was basically like having another c-section. Thankfully everything went great! And this week (and the next few weeks – I’ll be off work for the next 6 weeks) has been all about recovery.

So, this week, I’ve been thankful for lots of things:


My amazing husband.
Texts from my family.
My sisters for taking care of Luke while we were at the hospital.
Flowers from my family.
Luke and Abby snuggles.
Pain medication.
Our couch.


Looking forward to nothing planned this weekend, just more recovery and family time. Oh and some ice cream. Smile

Cheers to a great weekend!! What are you up to??

Linking up with Friday fun with Heather and Clare!
