Lawd, have mercy…

This has been quite a week!

First, let me send well wishes to my soon-to-be hystersister Pam Spaulding of Pam’s House Blend, who will also be having her surgery Monday!

And no, we are not the same person.


A bitch has been frantically trying to wrap shit up because today is my last day at work before Monday’s surgery and the 4 to 6 weeks of recovery that will follow.

I’m tired as hell because I haven’t been sleeping well…stressed out because I’m a control freak and there ain’t no controlling this situation…and freakishly relieved that surgery day is finally almost here.

This process has been a learning experience…big time!

I’ve learned that my body is tired as hell of my neglect and letting a bitch know in all kinds of ways.

I’ve learned that iron supplements piss off a bitch’s innards…and spinach sautéed in olive oil with garlic is yummy as hell.

And I’ve learned that I’ve got the most amazing people in my life…folks who have blown me away with their support and tolerance (‘cause a bitch has been a bitch this week!).

Love y’all!


So, I’m going to go get dressed and drag my ass into work…gonna try to do what I can do and try not to fret over what I can’t do.

Toodles for now and have a fantabulous Friday!

Nowhere in the Calendar of Saints is there a patron saint of fibroids so I am going to wing it... will light a candle to St. Cecilia, whose day is Monday, and St. George, patron saint of soldiers, since you are once fierce fighter!

Good luck!

You and Pam ARE dawgsysters, though.

Will be thinking about you when I go lights-out during anesthesia. I go in at 5:45AM ET on Monday.

Fibroids, you are outta there!

Good vibes to both of you wonderful women! Some folks will do anything not to have to put up with Thanksgiving craziness. Play that. Here's to ya!

I really enjoyed your posting at Balloon Juice. Best wishes for the surgery and recovery. Try to stay angry despite the good stuff available post-surgery

I wish you a swift and uneventful recovery, Shark-fu!
