What a Difference a Year Makes

Exactly a year ago at this time I was in the hospital after my hysterectomy.

I had planned on writing a whole post about how much can change in one year. I have been thinking about it all day. It's overwhelming to think about. I wish I could go back to exactly a year ago and tell myself it will all be okay.

But, between having a sick baby and getting ready for Christmas, I am exhausted and have no time to write the post I had planned. I hope to come back to this at some point.

(Jayden is okay. He has bronchiolitis, which is basically just a cold for most people. But with babies under 6 months it can be more serious. He went to the doctor Friday night and then they had us come back to be checked on Saturday. In that time his lungs sounded worse so they did a breathing treatment and it helped. They sent us home with the machine to do it here every 4 hours. He is getting better a little at a time.)

I do want to say that blogging has been an essential tool in my recovery. It really helped me explore my feelings and come to terms with my surgery. Thank you all so much for being a part of that. I can honestly say your support made a difference.


  1. Wow. I had no idea it was so recent. Well as Virgina Slims put it, "You've come a long way baby!" Hope Jayden feels better soon - poor little dude :(

  2. You don't know me, but I found your blog through a friend.

    Your poor little guy. Hope he feels better soon. I have to say he looks mighty cute taking his breathing treatment.

    I had a total hysterectomy a few years ago when I was 26. I had to have it because of cancer. I am still trying to come to term with the surgery and everything that goes along with it.

    You have come a long way!

    Have a great holiday!


  3. Wow, a year ago - it doesn't seem that long ago, but look how much has happened in that time!

    Hope Jayden is well soon! Happy Holidays!

  4. What a low point that must have been for you and how comforting it would have been to know that Jayden would arrive before the next year was over! You're an inspiration to us all! Happy Holidays :)

  5. Love you, and I hope that Jayden feels better VERY soon. <3

  6. Much better this year!!! What a sad little picture - hope he feels better very soon!

  7. Oh honey sorry jayden is sick. Hope he feels better and I'm sorry you had to go through that last year :(
