  • Week 3

    It will be 3 weeks since surgery this Wednesday. I’m starting my third week home and first week on my own. Derek took time off of work while I was in the hospital and then has worked from home the past two weeks. Last week Oleg didn’t have school on account of mid-Winter break and […]

  • Things he does

    On the day we went to pick the boy up, or was it just for a visit? I can’t remember. Anyway, one day when we went into the baby home to see Oleg we entered the little office room before the groupa room to see a gaggle of little ones shredding a newspaper. We weren’t […]

If you asked me yesterday I was sure I was staying another day. It was not easy this hysterectomy thing. The procedure itself went well, but the recovery has been a […]

  • Fears

    This post isn’t so much meant to be a woe is me post. It is more of a getting it out there kind of thing. You would think that a person would have fears related to an upcoming surgery. It’s only natural right? Yep. I’m like everyone else and have fears of this upcoming surgery. […]
