Welcome, Goddess Sisters, to this “moment” in my life. I am honored that you are here.
As all of you can imagine the decision to have my uterus removed was not easy. Let’s see…two kids at home with midwives, wrote a play about childbirth, started a global movement to make maternity care mother-friendly….and now, a hysterectomy.
If there is one thing I know for sure in life it’s that life is unpredictable…and when the curves balls arrive we can choose to resist or allow. We can see pain and suffering as plain old pain and suffering or we can see it as opportunity. I’m choosing the later!
So please join me. This is a celebration, ladies! No more periods, pelvic pain, or purchasing the entire stock of sanitary towels at Wholefoods. I truly believe a new “birth” awaits. I’m already imagining.
Now it’s time to party (or, rather, par-teh!). Any time this weekend I’m asking you to log into my blog and post a comment sending me support for this moment. (you will receive an email with details on how to login). Feel free to write anything – a letter to me, my uterus, a poem, a photo. If you’re not tech-savy and totally confused about how to post on this blog then just leave a comment after my inaugural post on Friday evening.
My surgery date is January 26 at 10am EST in the United States. If you can, please hold me in your thoughts from 9.30am EST onward…sending me all the light, love, and magic you can.
Okay, signing off for now. Can’t wait to party with you this weekend!
