A New Day

I am confident that tomorrow will promise to be a new and better day. I have been cooped up in the house and walking around like a zombie for 4 days now. It is time to enjoy life and friends and family even as we grieve our loss.

All went well with the D & C today. My doctor is just incredible and I am so glad we lucked out choosing them. She stood and held my hand and told me how sorry she was as they put me to sleep. I was in and out of the operating room in less than a 1/2 hour. Physically I feel quite well - better than I thought - no pain meds needed - just some A.dvil.

I am so blessed to have a wonderful partner and we are so blessed to have so many family and friends who have been there (and will continue to be) as our journey has taken a turn we didn't expect it to. All of the kind words and thoughts from people in real life and on the blog have truly meant the world to us.

A special thank you to whomever posted our story over at LFCA the extra encouragement we received from folks over there was just another kindness to help ease the pain a bit.

This weekend is National Scrapbook Weekend so it promises to be full of fun - just what we need. Tomorrow we have our Kit of the Month Clubs (scrapbooking and quilting) and we will have lunch with our good friends Laura, Sue, and Olivia. Sunday we are signed up for an all day crop from 9 AM - 9PM with goodie bags, raffles, contests, and 3 catered meals. We are going with 3 friends to that. I am ready to get back to life and now that the my body is healing physically, I really feel that the emotional healing can begin.

Again, thanks to everyone for all of the support - it really has meant the world to both of us - more than you even know!

dear girls - you are so amazing. I know you only in blogland, but you sound like such fun and you have a really amazing family and support system and seem to enjoy such cool activities together.
I am glad the D and C went well and that you feel like it's time to come out of the shadows and move forward -even while you are grieving and in pain.
take care:)
I'll be following your story:)
