One year

One year ago Wednesday, I went in to the hospital to get my uterus out. The biopsy was a bit weird, and the standard of care said to just take the damn thing out. They didn't think it was cancer yet, but still out.

On the way there, Teshi and I got behind a landscape truck of some kind. I can't remember the exact name but it was something like Lone Mountain, and the plate said LONE1.

I was raised on the Young Wizards books, and I know as well as anyone what you do when you meet the Lone Power. "Greetings and defiance," I said, then told Steph.

I knew that as a warning, and I was not fully surprised when the uterus was full of cancer.

It's out. I've been irradiated.

I am here beside my partner in their bed, safe and warm and secure in the knowledge that if something weird happens, they or I will notice.

That'd be an alarming amount in a year even if it were all positive things, not scary medical stuff and needing to escape harmful situations. I hope you guys get at least a decade of life being weighted much more towards the peaceful/joyful side.

...whooo, yeah, an encounter with the Lone One right before surgery would have me a lil worried. On the other hand, fair warning? Which you don't always get.

Get my uterus out was one of the best things I ever did. Eliminating the bleeding, anemia and pain made my life much better. I didn't have cancer, just fibroids, but getting them gone was heavenly.

Congrats on your one year anniversary cancer free.

I'm glad you're safe. Tbh, your experiences have been part of me really trying to get my situation with my PCOS figured out. I appreciate that you're here and that you wrote about it.
