End of an Era

Tomorrow will be the end of my reproductive life.  Because of some recent "unpleasantness", I'm having my insides redecorated.  Not a total renovation - just a little remodel.

My kids have been vaguely aware this is coming.  Tonight one of the teens asked about some details then, in all caring honesty, asked "So no more babies?"

Nope, no more babies my lovely.  Hasn't really been an option for awhile, but willingly and knowingly shutting that door feels kinda sad.  I have loved having babies more than I can relate with mere words.  Me and my endometrium - it's been a good run.

Eek. Good luck with the remodeling. I hope all goes smoothly. If you see Ty Pennington anywhere near your room though, I'd make a dash for the door.

Good luck. And wow--a stuffed uterus? How cool is that?

Good luck with your remodel. I am sure there will be no annoying debates about color at least.

See you Saturday.

So sorry- hugs and hugs and more hugs.
(milk the recovery time for all it's worth!!)

I hope all goes well, remodeling is a chore!
Just so you know I felt the same way about menopause, not that I wanted any more babies, but having the door shut seemed odd, and sort of sad.

Thinking of you!!

OMG where did you get that photo.

Good luck, yes. I will be thinking of you.

I can sort of imagine the sadness. Even though I want another baby like I want a hole in the head.

Your girls are so adorable. Srsly. Even the teenagers. ;)

Just get more pets.

Will this be in-patient, out-patient, or home removal kit?

I hope it went okay. Depending on what the issues were, it can be a lot less painful once it's out. I hope that is the case for you.

That photo is really funny. Good luck with your surgery.

If this means you won't have to crochet any more tampons for the rest of your life, I'm actually kind of jealous. Hope everything goes smoothly.

Good luck. I was at a point a few years ago where my issues were annoying enough that I thought I'd need a "remodel" myself but I finally went through menopause and am not having problems anymore. Didn't happen till I was 54, which was longer than it needed to be in my opinion! In retrospect I shoulda had it done! Sending lots of good wishes your way. Hugs!

I didn't see this coming, though I don't look up there like I should maybe. Hope you are on the mend.
