Well ladies & gents, it’s been exactly one year since the giant spleen surgery.
It was a LONG haul to recoup and even now I have some residual pain left in the scar from nerve endings that healed over in the scar tissue. Overall, things are 100 times better. I can walk and sit without feeling my organs pushing against each other and I can hold my kids again. Based on just those two items, I’m miles ahead of where I was this time last year.
Plus I’m not laying in a hospital, with PICC lines or worrying about transfusions and collapsed lungs.
Cardin asks me frequently when my scar will go away, but I don’t mind my battle wound. It reminds me I’m not invincible and how close I was to not seeing this little boy grow up to be the awesome toddler he is.
Listen lady, how can you not love that face?
I do declare today a national holiday and so I give you happy spleeniversay day!!
