I Have a What?

It has been quite the week for me.

I was rushed to the hospital Tuesday evening for severe abdominal pain and ended up having surgery on Thursday morning for a paraduodenal hernia which I have apparently had since birth. Finding out that only 1% of the population of the world will ever have this type of hernia did not make me feel special! I was fortunate that the surgery was able to be done laparoscopically so my recovery won't be quite as horrible.

I am recovering slowly. I am very tired but the pain is, thankfully, being managed with Tylenol. I'll be home for at least a week. I am hoping to get back to work by the 23rd so I'll be making sure I follow all of the Dr.'s orders!

Check back later today to see who is the lucky winner of the Fairy Door from my Grow Your Blog party give-away. I'm a little slow on the draw here but I'll definitely be posting a winner this evening!! If you haven't left a comment yet there is still time to get in on the drawing :0) All you need to do is visit my Grow Your Blog Party post and leave me a comment.

Have a wonderful day...


  1. So sorry to hear about your health issue. Take your recovery very slow - seriously. If ever there's a time to baby yourself, it is now. I know from experience that pushing it can be bad for you. Naps can be your friend!

  2. Thank you!! I am feeling pretty good. I still get tired quickly. I go back to work on Tuesday so I am trying to work my way up to more activity over the weekend :0) So far so good! I am definitely taking is slowly! I don't want to do anything that will make my recovery time longer!!!
