A Note from A Stranger


As most of you know, I am fixing to undergo a hysterectomy. I ordered a book USED called Through the Land of Hyster: The Hyster Sisters Guide. This book contains pre-op and post-op information, checklists, helpful hints for recovery and more. Advice given in the book is shared as a form of sisterly advice and women to women support. “Bedtime Stories for Hyster Sisters” are included to add to the sisterly charm of this book. This book reflects the solid information along with a bit of humor known at the Hyster Sisters website. I adore the website. It is a great place for any woman considering, getting, or recovering from a hysterectomy.

Regardless, the book I ordered was a USED book in perfect condition. Inside this book, I found a note that made my day. I thought it needed to be shared. People are wonderful. I just thought that people should know that. A simple note from a stranger can make a whole day brighter. God is good. 

I also want to thank everyone donating to my GoFundMe. You have no idea how much it means to me. ❤

An Update on Me

Hi y’all,

I don’t do this often. I mean, write a blog post about myself over everything book related. It just seemed like a good time for it. 

I go November 15th for a full hysterectomy. I’m only thirty, I have three kids (10,9, and 3), and I am extremely nervous about this procedure. However, the last three years since my son’s birth and my tubal ligation have been hard on me. I have pretty much chronic pain in my abdomen, pelvic area, and back. It hasn’t always been as bad as it is now. It has gotten progressively worse over the past three years. It is now constant. Along with a plethora of female problems that I won’t get into because well, it is just TMI, and that, life hasn’t been that great in that sense. I’m ready to get my quality of life back. In the sense that I love my job, love my authors, love my books, and of course, love my family, life is great. However, I can’t wait until I have a day where there is no pain.

I just wanted to let you know I may not be around as much for a while. I do not mean work-wise. I am still working, and I always will be. I am just going to concentrate on my family and work leading up to the surgery. During the recovery, I will take a few days off, but then I will be right back to work. Lucky for me, I can do my work while lying in bed in my jammies. It is one of the many reasons I love my job. I’m not exactly sure how long recovery will be, as it is different for everyone, or how it will all turn out. I hope it all goes through easy as pie, from the surgery to the recovery.

Please keep me in your prayers. You are always in mine.
