No Teddy, no uterus, LOTS of lying around.

Did you miss me?

I'm back home, doing a lot of reading, interneting, tv watching, and yarny things. Normally, this would be fun except for the searing pain in my abdomen. Wheeeeee!

Everything has gone as well as it could possibly go, I am home following orders and trying not to get bored. Thankfully we have borrowed the in-laws' laptop while they are away on vacation with three of the children (excellent timing) so I am easily entertained there.

Aside from the aftermath of the hysterectomy I already feel like a new person, it's great. It's also nice not feeling like I could have a stroke at any moment. Still carrying a good bit of weight, having given birth a few times I knew there would be no magical instant weight loss, but a girl can dream.

As close to Teddy as I was, I'm not really missing him. Apparently my uterus was the size of a basketball when they finally removed the troublesome thing.

So now I have lots of time to catch up on the yarny side of things, I've been working on a star blanket-easy, mindless crocheting for in the hospital-and a dishcloth that I restarted 4 times while in the hospital because I kept jacking it up. I also cannot wait to get caught up in my blog reading. Hooray!
