I will later give you a full update of my July 18, 2018, surgery and current recovery, but first wanted to share something super important and amazing!
For those of you who may have read the title and thought elephants have Endo, alas, this isn’t that blog – I haven’t done that research yet. But, please keep reading…
My Mum surprised me with a gift after my July 18, 2018, excision surgery: the stuffed elephant pictured above, whom she named Mr. Victorious. 🙂 And inside the bag was this incredible note, that I share today with her blessing:
“Lisa, I was in the gift shop feeling like there was something in there for me to get you. I had no idea what it was…
Until I saw the elephant!
Elephants in areas like Africa when one finally finds water underground will let out a trumpet call that goes out for miles around. The elephants that hear the call come running to where that elephant is and they form a circle. Then they all stay in place and stomp their feet repeatedly. All of a sudden, the water rises to the surface and they are all able to drink.
This elephant reminds me of you and your Endo Sisters.
You let out that call and you and your Sisters found each other.
Someday a cure will rise to the surface and you will all be able to drink.
I love you Lisa.
Pardon me as I, yet again, grab a tissue. It’s true, dear Sisters. We rally together. We are here for one another. Always.
And, Mum, thank you for such a special gift and incredibly touching words. I will cherish your letter, and Mr. Victorious, forever. Gonna go lay back down now and continue to heal up and relax.
