Friday! The last Friday of September…already? Time just goes so quickly.
This week has been rough for me. My period started 15 days late. Ha. I was certain I was going to skip September. And the only pain I’ve had on my period has been intense lower left abdominal pain and mirrored back pain. Been living on NSAIDs, pain pills, TENS unit, and herbal pain spray this week.
I received word that they may be able to schedule my bowel resection for mid-October, but still waiting on confirmation. I would love it if it could be sooner rather than later, but we’ll see.
And now? Now we wait…

May we keep hoping and fighting ❤ Have a wonderful weekend.
Blogs I updated this week:
Endometriosis & the Appendix: a 2020 study of a 45-year-old woman whose imaging studies of her appendix appeared normal, but once in surgery was found to not only have deep-infiltrating Endometriosis on her appendix, but a carcinoma! The appendix was removed and two years after her surgery, she was still symptom-free
