This week has been quite out of the ordinary for me - filled with emotions and experiences that will stay with me for the rest of my life! I'm overwhelmed with the love and support that I got from everywhere! Obviously the op was a "big thing" in my life but I didn't expect it to be a "big thing" for all the people around me. After all - this kind of operation are performed on thousands of woman all over the world on a daily basis. No big deal.
Since the doctor told me that it will have to be a hysterectomy and not only a sterilisation as I expected, I was really, really scared of the op. I tried to avoid thinking about it too much but I expected to be very nervous and stressed out on the day of the op. Quite the opposite happened. I was soooooo relaxed about it all on Tuesday. I received so many phone calls and sms's from people wishing me well and saying that they would pray for me. I could literally feel the power of all the prayers that went up for me on that day! Our God is such an AWESOME God! I don't even have words to describe the calmness and peace that I experienced during the entire week.
Everything went so well - beyond my best expectations. Only directly after the op I experienced severe pain but once that was under control I can honestly describe the pain as minor to moderate at worst! I was at home lying in my own bed only 48 hours after I was admitted to hospital!
I can't express my appreciation for each and everybody who supported me during this week - whether it was with a message on my blog / facebook, a sms or phonecall or just a distant prayer. I really appreciate it beyond words! A special thank you to Leon as well - he was by my side all the time and he's still spoiling me at home. I feel like a real life Queen! :)
Today my sister and mother came to visit me at home. They brought me a beautiful bunch of roses and the prettiest little angel figurine! I've got the sweetest sister in the world! I love you soooo much sis! (I know she reads my blog - but she never leaves a comment - come on sis - please leave your footprint this time - pretty please!)
Leon took before and after pics of me in hospital with his cell.
This is the flowers that my sis and mom brought today (dankie Martie!)
And this is my little angel of joy! She is sooo tiny and delicate!
This is the flowers that I got from the office:
I feel so blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life!
