CURRENTLY January 2016

Happy New Year…

thanks to this month's sponsor…

Learning to be awesome



I don't want my CURRENTLY to be a Debbie Downer…
but friends… I have been sick for a few months now…
at first I had a stubborn ovarian cyst and then it ruptured and I had to have surgery…
that was November… 
after surgery I still felt yucky!!!
YUCKY I tell ya…
and then after tons of TESTS… TONS…. they decided it wasn't my kidneys, or appendix, or gall bladder….or anything else in my abdomen…  and so they decided I probably had scar tissue which doesn't show up on imagining….
so this past Monday I had surgery again…
and yep lots of scar tissue…
it had wrapped around my intestines… stretched my ovary towards my abdomen wall and was stuck to lots of other things… just crazy
recovery has not been fun… I have been struggling with the AIR BUBBLES you get after surgery 
they are painful 
and and and a HORRIBLE headache… if it is not better by today … I get to go back to the DR…
YAY!!! 
so that little TMI should give you an idea of why I need more break, more relaxation, and more days!!!

my one little word is JOY…
because I am needing to find the Joy in things…
being sick for over 2 months can really get to you… and I need to focus on the happy 
find my JOY!!!

and now it is your turn….

  1. I love your word: JOY! I feel you on the sick for what seems like forever. Over summer, I got sick on vacation and it lasted almost 3 months. It was awful. I hope you feel better soon!

    Happy New Year!

  12. It must be hard for a spunky person like you to be slowed down with health concerns. I'm sorry to hear that you're going through all of that! Seems like you're on the mend though? I've been home with a broken leg for 4 months, so I feel your pain. HANG IN THERE! We got this!

  26. I hope you are feeling better soon and are staying drugged up until pain goes. I am completely feeling for you as I had terrible pain from the air bubbles when I had surgery last year. It is horrendous. Hope the pain disappears soon x

  29. I'm so sorry you are going through this difficult time. My husband has been down for the count too since the beginning of November with a severe back injury. Being sick and in pain is no fun at all especially during the holidays. Here's to 2016 and recovery! Take care of you!

  34. Oh, boo! Being in and out of the hospitals is the worst! I had a similar situation but it turned out to be my gallbladder but I had to have two surgeries and a million tests before it was all said and done... it's the worst! I hope you find some joy in Bub and in resting and relaxing! Hopefully, you will begin to feel more like yourself soon. I'm sending you lots of Iggy lovin' and kisses from Ohio! Feel better!

  35. Thanks for hosting this link-up every month. I struggle to blog regularly, so I have decided to make CURRENTLY a New Year's Resolution for 2016. It's quick and easy to do and it gets me blogging and connecting with other teacher-bloggers.
