i'm getting spayed

Yes, those are oven mitts. On the stirrups of the Gynocological Oncologist's exam table. I nearly peed myself laughing.

Talked to Dr. Man yesterday, and went over a bunch of options, ranging from "radiation-keep the uterus" to "take it out, plus your fallopian tubes and ovaries."

In the end, after long conversations and pros and cons, we decided to spay me. Surgery's set for Monday, April 12, which is superb because that gives my mom plenty of time to get a plane ticket to come out and give me lots o' love (and tell me to suck it up and not whine so much. Ah, the life of being an RN's daughter).

Kept checking back for updates. Will be hoping for an easy recovery for you. Hard choices for sure, but sounds like you're doing JUST the right thing for you!

K-thanks for keeping us updated on what is happening and for letting us know that you are going to be ok and you still have your sense of humor. If you need anything, or I can be of any help, please let me know. I don't have the words to make it all better but I am here for you. xoxo, Coreen
Women are so strong. "Suck it up"?! A man would never say that about losing his balls.
