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. 😥 I was so scared but, I needed to be brave for him and our children. I WAS TER👏🏽RI👏🏽FIED👏🏽!

You know those crazy movies 🎥 where everything always goes wrong 😨….that was me. My doctor 🩺 assured me multiple times that I was going to be fine and I truly believed that.👍🏽

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. 😁😥😳🤔🙃😇😬😡🙁 That played a huge part with my anxiety. And let me tell you…the blood work was the worst part 💉. 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.
