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 TERRIFIED!

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.
