Though there has been a considerable delay between posts I am still faithfully committed to this project, especially since I have
connived convinced my husband to take me to Italy if I finish it. Life is busy for us as it is for everyone. I have not yet completed my resolution of reaching out to old friends. When I do, I will recap that week.
Two more weeks have passed in the interim. In the first week I organized our investment accounts. Heady stuff I know. But, it needed to be done. I consolidated, sold, and bought and now we are right where we should be, at least for the next few months.
This week, I am trying to do Kegel’s everyday. For those of you not familiar this is a pelvic floor exercise. It helps ward off terrible things like uterine prolapse and incontinence. In a couple of weeks I am scheduled to have a hysterectomy and salpingectomy so the Kegel thing was best done before. The operation is an attempt to mitigate the increased risk I have for developing ovarian cancer because of the type of breast cancer I had. It should be a pretty easy surgery and it will be followed in a couple of years by another surgery to remove my ovaries. It is a relatively low risk surgery although the surgeons jokes about nicking my ureters are slightly worrisome.
Now we are all caught up.
