It’s okay to be scared.

It’s okay to be scared. Being scared means you’re about to do something really brave

The smile in this picture…(sigh) I had a belly full of butterflies. I thought this was going to be the last time I saw my husband. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ I was so scared but, I needed to be brave for him and our children. I WAS TER๐Ÿ‘๐ŸฝRI๐Ÿ‘๐ŸฝFIED๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ!

You know those crazy movies ๐ŸŽฅ where everything always goes wrong ๐Ÿ˜จ….that was me. My doctor ๐Ÿฉบ assured me multiple times that I was going to be fine and I truly believed that.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

All smiles

Smiling got me through a lot

They did a good job but, the needle was huge.

I was also in a weird place mentally and emotionally during this phase of my life. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ™ That played a huge part with my anxiety. And let me tell you…the blood work was the worst part ๐Ÿ’‰. I HATE needles. And, they used a really huge one for this surgery. I had a bruise for weeks.

They rolled me away and that was that!!

I will forever be grateful for this change.
