List Love Sunday + Surgery Update





Right now I am recovering from surgery this past Friday (iPhone picture below) and it's almost 5 AM on Saturday. I am in a lot of pain and can barely move from the surgery. Fibroids were found on my uterus and scar tissue were found on several organs, including my uterus. I have to wait until my follow up appointment on December 29 to see if the scar tissue is linked to endometriosis and to hear what else my Doctors have to say. I originally thought recovery time would be 2 weeks, but it is actually 3 weeks. Thanks for all of the well wishes and concern. It means a lot to me.

With that being said, I have made the decision to take next week off from blogging, since I didn't get to schedule any posts. I will still be connected to the blogging world by continuing to comment on my favorite blogs during that time. The blogging community has shown me so much support these last few months and I am so grateful.

My next post will be on December 15 and I may only be posting 1 to 2 food posts a week until after December 29.  This week there seemed to be not enough hours in the day for me with trying to prepare things before surgery. I hope you all had a great week. Here are my favorite links and things of the week.

  • This bakers gift guide by Sweetapolita has a lot of fun things for the baker in your life.



  • I discovered this photography website named YouPic.






Before surgery ~ Look how tiny I am compared to the bed....lol.


I hope you all are having a great Sunday. What were your favorite links and things of the week?


Savor The Baking,

  7. Oh you poor thing! I had something similar last year where they took an ovary and fallopian tube because an endometrioma had just about destroyed them. It was supposed to be a few days in bed but it turned out to be so much harder than expected. Rest, rest, rest, and give yourself plenty of time. I rushed back to work and paid for it all winter long with illness after illness due to my weak immune system. I hope you're much better real soon. Good luck, prayers, and healing thoughts <3

    1. Thanks so much for sharing that with me Allie. I hope you are feeling much better now. It's encouraging to know I'm not the only one going through something like this. Women's bodies go through so much, but we come out stronger because of it. Have a great Wednesday :-)
