Life lesson

I'm not going to lie, it's been a stressful 24 hours. At the risk of sounding morbid, I thought it might be the end of me, and I was mad because things are really starting to get good.

To make a long story short, during a routine exam yesterday, my doc thought she found a polyp on my uterus. It could have been nothing, but it also could have made me infertile, or it could have been cancer.

Wow. As a newlywed who's really enjoying life, I didn't expect that kind of news.

I decided not to feel sorry for myself though, instead I was going to fight this and really live life to the fullest. I went into today for a follow-up with a renewed zest for life.

During today's ultrasound, the doctor discovered I am totally fine, that yesterday's finding must have been a fluke, or perhaps misread information from the ultrasound tech.


Lesson learned: this thing called life goes by way too fast, and can be taken from you quickly. Enjoy each day, surround yourself with good and upbeat people, exercise, love, laugh often, and don't be afraid to take risks.

(Side note: I think it's time to try and get my first book published. No more fear of rejection.)


  1. I love ya girl:) Very scary thing to go through! I can't wait to read your book-you are a fantastic writer! Life really is too short and sometimes we forget that. I am so glad everything is ok.

  2. It was a very scary day or two - SO SO glad all is well again - those are definitely "wake-up calls" - love you sweetie!!!!
