After the procedure I woke up in a good mood, frankly I was chatty Cathy (alcohol and pain pills do that do me, in this case the pain stuff they gave me). I was just so glad it was over with and ready for the next steps.
Turns out I had endometriosis which is why Aunt Flow visits were so intrusive. I haven’t gotten the details because apparently I was too “loopy” to have a discussion with and instead they talked to my parents. Yesterday, after the procedure, I was pretty ticked they talked to my parents rather than me about what was wrong and the care that I would need that night.
Apparently the doctor told them to not leave me alone that night – which frankly when I don’t feel well I want to be left alone so I can lounge around, do what I want, eat junk food and just be. Dad actually felt my forehead that night to make sure I didn’t have a fever - I have a little device to run over my forehead for that. Last night, I was convinced I’m taking a cab and not telling anyone if I have to do something like this again!
Today, I know one day I’ll do the same for my kids, and I totally expect my kids to deal with it in silence as well It’s out of love that my parents did all of this. This little procedure disrupted their lives too. They took me to and from the hospital, Dad picked up Five Guys burger and fries for me, Mom watched my kids that night and took them to school this morning and Dad even stayed in the guest room last night to be here if I needed anything. You never stop being a parent, and I’m grateful for mine.
After the procedure I had some cramping that was easily relieved with a heating pad and the pain pills the doctor prescribed. Today, I haven’t needed a pain pill and no heating pad! I’m feeling really pretty good the day after, I’m surprised! I’m even going to pick up the kids this afternoon from school.
