Where I’ve been…

I didn’t post here about beforehand but, figured I’d fill y’all in, now. I had to have a hysteroscopy and D&C biopsy yesterday.

Everything looks structural normal, only one polyp was found, they peforated my uterus in one spot, but that’ll heal. I’ll have the biopsy results back in a couple of weeks. That was the biggest reason for the surgery, as they are testing me for uterine and cervical cancer.

I’m still scared about the results but, I made it through the surgery and the anesthesia which was a huge fear of mine. The doctors, nurses, etc were wonderful, explaining everything to me as they went along, all the way up to when they put me out.

When I came out of the anesthesia, I was in a lot of pain, so they shot me full of Toradol. And, it didn’t stop, so on came the morphine. I could have told them Toradol doesn’t work for me but, I was still so out of it, that wasn’t an option.

I’m home, now, on percocet and ibuprofen, in a lot of pain but, dealing. The worst part is my jawline from positioning me for the airway tube. My whole chin/jaw feels like I was hit with a sledgehammer.

And, I’m still really tired. But, now onto the next step, making it until I have the biopsy results back. 2 more weeks of not knowing. Plus, six weeks of restrictions, no heavy lifting, no baths, no swimming, no sex. Hmph, sounds like postbirth restrictions, only without the kid.

I’m gone.

A day…

I’m slowly cutting my hair shorter. An inch here or there to get used to it. It was about waist length and is now closer to bra strap length.

It’s lighter now. Weird. When I get to shoulder length, I’ll leave it there and dye it pink again. Yes, pink, again. I look too, unSuzy like. My nose ring is gone, as it migrated down my face, I don’t wear my earrings, I stopped stretching them, and my hair is normal.

I’ve been going through an “I must look like an adult” phase. But, really what does that mean? I’m 31. Obviously, I’m not a kid anymore. I look my age. The picture down there? It’s a couple years old now. I have some grey peaking out, a line here or there. I really do look like a 31 year old.

Although, that phrasing is odd. I am 31, so, I have to look 31. Just like anyone else, if you’re 40, that’s what 40 looks like for you, 20, same thing. (Lord, though, if I could go back to 20 and tell myself how young I was.)

We are used to judging age by media. Television, magazines, news. Of course actors look younger, they have money to be pinched, pulled, tucked, makeup’d to look like something their not.

It’s the real people that matter. That hits me sometimes, when I’m sitting at a dart tournament, a store, a restaurant. How people look. No one looks like the magazine pictures, we all have different lines, expressions, hair. No one’s hair is completely flat without a single hair poking out. We’re people.

Yet, we look to those pictures to compare ourselves. That’s just sad. There is nothing better looking than a regular person with a smile. A man holding his wife’s hand. A mother looking at her child. A couple giggling across a table. That’s reality and I wish there was more of it.
