I recently found out that I'm having an oophorectomy (removal of 1 or both ovaries, depending on what the Dr finds) so I'm gonna need this pillow.
Also, thank God for my #mom who is flying all the way to AZ to baby me before/during/after my surgery.

On Friday I learned my blood type. A Positive. I learned this because I needed 8 bags of it to save my life when a cyst the size of an orange on my right ovary ruptured and I had a major bleed in my abdomen.

Yesterday my life changed for the better, I had a hysterectomy, my tubes and both ovaries removed. I have battled health issues since I was 16 with surgeries, a premature bub & a high risk pregnancy due to Endometriosis, PCOS & incompetent cervix. I have been fortunate to have produced two beautiful miracle babies 💗💗 (which we were told we might never have). Soon I will start HRT to help me as I will begin menopause at 29, but this will be a walk in the park compared to what I have already been through all these years. #womenshealthmatters #hysterectomy #oophorectomy #salpingectomy #welcometomynewlife😎

When I woke up this morning after all the anesthesia effect gone, I found this picture in my album. Kind of confuse, why my hubby take this photo, we seldom take non smiling picture haha..
But when I asked, he said : you asked me to take it, you talk alot in your sleep last night 😝
Wahahahaa, i feel embarrassed, even when I under anesthetic and half awake, I still thinking about taking picture 🙈
The surgery went well, but even though with pain killer, I still feel pain in my tummy. It reminds me of the pain during caesar labor -----
Pagi2 begitu terbangun dari tidur dan semua efek obat bius sdh hilang, kaget liat foto ini ada di hp. Tapi pas aku tanya pak suami, haha ternyata aku sendiri yang minta difoto, plus banyak ngigau ternyata malam ini, maluuu.
Operasinya berjalan lancar, alhamdulillah. Sekarang lagi menikmati cenut2, rasanya mirip kaya abis ops caesar.. #surgery #oophorectomy #breastcancerfighter #struggleisreal

This stuff saves me on a regular basis. Especially when it's Friday, it's been a long week, and I hit snooze, but still needed to get the workout in. This is the kind I use. Do you have a favorite brand?

I'm so excited!!! My Shakeology came in the mail today and look at the awesome gift that Beachbody gave me for being a loyal customer...a trimr bottle! How did they know that I've been wanting one? .
My snack is all ready for tomorrow's ride home from work. I don't know about you, but that's always when the hangries kick in for me. Shakeology keeps me in check, kicks the sugar cravings to the curb, and I'm not hungry and giving in to temptation when I get home.

During my Hospital stay in May, the doctors found that I had a severe kidney infection and also a dermoid cyst on my left ovary. These cyst aren't normal fluid filled cyst that most women get... they are weird creatures 😝 that you are born with that can grow hair, eyes, teeth, etc (go ahead and look up a pic... it's pretty creepy!). My doctor felt that the pain I experienced in May could have been caused by both the kidney infection AND the dermoid cyst flipping my ovary and cutting off blood supply. With as active as I am, she felt it was best to remove it BUT it was safest and easiest just to remove my left ovary and Fallopian tube. She also said that while she is in there if we didn't want anymore kids, she could remove my right tube because it reduces your risk of ovarian cancer! But she would leave my right ovary so that I wouldn't go through menopause at 34 (THANK GOODNESS!) Everything went extremely smoothly and the surgery actually went faster than she had expected. It's been a week and I'm surprised how exhausted I have been. I really am sore when I'm up moving around but if I am laying comfortably I haven't had much pain since Sunday. I'm grateful she really only had to make three small incisions that are healing amazingly so far!

I know that my greatest challenge to come is keeping me from not over doing it! As I feel more like myself.... I know I am going to be itching to go

Thirty minute ab workout this morning. I haven't done this one in awhile and I forgot how much I love it. Gettin' back in the groove.

Back at it again today. I've taken way too much time off. We moved houses and it took all of my energy to get everything packed up in addition to the day-to-day. Then came poor food choices while we got everything unpacked in the new place. And I'm feeling it. Back to sluggish and bloated. Tough getting going this morning, but it's time to get back into the routine. Bonus...I have a much bigger space to work out. 💕

It's been a long few weeks of clearing out our house of 18 years, packing and moving. Many trips up and down stairs, loading cars, etc. Even though it was a lot of work, I am so grateful that I was physically able to do all of those things. Today, I rewarded myself with a nice yoga stretch before beginning the unpacking phase. And it felt amazing.

I actually slept well last night & beyond happy to have coffee this morning, hopefully food soon too! P.S. Thank you Snapchat for this magical filter making me look acceptable at 5am, even with bed-head & no makeup 🤣

So very spoiled by our Accounting team on my last day before surgery tomorrow! There is literally food covering every filing cabinet in our department, they definitely know the way to my heart!! #surgerytomorrow #oophorectomy #positivelysurvivingcancer

Still no regular workouts thanks to the bum toe. But I've been getting my ab challenge workout in each day and some lifting on my own - alternating days with upper and lower body.

Still smiling but not too excited about my next & hopefully last surgery for a while, officially on the books for next Thursday. Taking the plunge & having my ovaries removed all to try hormone therapies other than tamoxifen. Really hoping that works out because while this is normally a pretty simple procedure, it will not be for me. Because of the reconstruction I opted for, DIEP flap, they can't do this via laparoscopy & instead have to do a laparotomy. In other words, they'll be using the same incision area used for two C-sections & my reconstruction. A little disappointed about the 6 week recovery time, but hoping to make it more like 4... I'm pretty tough! 😉💪

Well, I managed to injure myself...again. My dad didn't nickname me Grace for nothin'. Random objects seem to find their way into my path...walls, vacuum cleaners...this time it was a picture frame that was propped up in the attic. For no good reason, it just jumped in front of me. 😂 I jammed my toe and it is now completely blue and purple. So, no jumping for me...truly sneakers are even an issue. Good thing it's summer! I could have given up on the workout, but I didn't! I grabbed some weights and did some stationary squats and lunges and then I did the ab challenge workout with my daughter. Where there's a will, there's way!
