Doctors have assured all of us there is no reason to be alarmed, but they strongly suggest that Lynn have a hysterectomy - nothing dangerous, just some benign feminine issues. She is 45, so, while it will be uncomfortable for a little while, in the long run, it's the best thing.

I am, however, her mother, so I would appreciate any thought you might care to send her way.

She is handling it beautifully, as I expected. She is in excellent health; she works out; she eats healthy foods, and is very stable emotionally. Chris, of course, is being adorable.

All is basically good, but it is surgery, so, as I said, your thoughts, sent her way, would be nice.

Dear Ann,
God bless Lynn.

No matter how routine doctors say surgery is, it is tramatic to the body of the person who is operated upon. It takes a while to heal.

God bless you, too.

Love,
Betty

What Betty said. My wife had that operation years ago and it turned out well solving the problems she was having.

Sending my thoughts your way, Ann. Please pass on my very best wishes to Lynn (and Chris, who will be immensely worried for some time to come). Trying times for you all. Better days ahead, I hope.

Ann, sending my thoughts and prayers your daughter's way, and your way also. My wife had a partial hysterectomy and then of course had to have it completed a few years later, so we've been through this, twice. Truthfully, she's been through it twice, and I've stood by and worried and supported.

That's really all we can do, worry, pray, and support them through it all.

Yes, E Don, you are right. Chris and I have been given our orders. The administrator has taken charge and is feeling more like she is in control again. We both have duties for the next week or so, at least. One is that Chris be at the hospital today and that I stay home and cook him a dinner.(I hope you can hear the pride in my voice as I write that) I will have the phone in easy reach, I can tell you. Hopefully, learning to use this new little netbook (It arrived yesterday.) will keep me distracted in the meantime.

Thank you. I know they both appreciate all of the kind words and prayers.

Ann

Actually, the surgery itself won't be until Monday. I don't know what I was thinking. Today was the final check-in with her doctors.

It's all set to go. They expect her to be in the hospital until Wednesday. She asked if she could go back to work after two weeks.

They said, "No."

Possibly three weeks, but more than likely four, which would take her to spring break.
That upset her more than anything, until we pointed out how hectic that last week before break would be. She's finally coming around to the idea that the time off to recover will be a good thing.

But I'm getting the feeling she is more panicked about that much time without anything productive to do than she is about the surgery itself.

Chris called earlier today to say that Lynn came through it all quite well. The drs are pleased; she is now out of recovery and back in her room; still scheduled to go home Wednesday.

If she is like most women I know who have had the surgery she will need to be reminded to rest even when she is feeling great - the inside of the body doesn't show its healing time like a break in the skin on the outside. Most wounds take time to heal. They heal best with a strong immune system. Today, most women feel better faster than in the past; however, the healing still requires consideration.
