after a Total Hysterectomy and I thought you might be curious as to how I REALLY feel.  Actually, pretty good!  (Don't tell my husband - I'm not ready to do the laundry and dishes)  I went through lots of emotions last month before having it and so far it has exceeded my expectations.  Read THIS book and spent time HERE.  I spent 23 hours in the hospital, having the robotic surgery.  Two days later I was walking upright!  I've also learned lots of new vocabulary.  Words like Oopherectomy, Total hysterectomy, DaVinci Robotic surgery, and HRT.  Ask me if you need some educating.  I didn't know much about all this, frankly, until it was necessary.

I'm required to take it easy but have actually gotten to do a lot of good things.  I have a list which gives me a sense of accomplishment (so don't burst my bubble by telling me what you've done on these beautiful OK winter days):

1.  Read a couple of books
2.  Watched movies
3.  Played on the computer
4.  Read the newspaper
5.  Cleaned out the address book
6.  Wrote down birthdays, appts., activities on the 2012 calendar
7.  Scrapbook pics from 2006 - yes, you heard right
8.  Clip and organize coupons
9.  Played the piano
10.  Stamp craft
11. Cleaned out the magazine basket
12.  Braided my hair
13.  Cleaned out email inbox

So there you go.  There's a list for you if you ever have to stay down for a while!  
Blessings to you this weekend!

I think that is a great list!! I would like to hear you play the piano. Even though you've always had it, I don't think I've ever thought about you actually playing it! Sad, huh???! My mom is a great pianist and teaches piano, but sadly Kimberly and I never wanted to learn. I took lessons, but quit as soon as they let me. She'll be glad to hear you play!

Glad your recovery is going well. Look at all the things you have accomplished so far.

Please -- how could I possibly make you feel bad with my "to-done" list!? You're like the Army -- you accomplished more during recovery than I did all break!
