getting to know me from the inside out...

Here's the inside of me. The uterus. Kinda funny. Matt showed it to my mom right away and mom said something like, "ohh, the future home of my grandchildren!" I thought that was funny and a rather interesting way of looking at it. Matt just loved to see it all and he's hoping they give us my gallbladder in a jar.. or at the very least the stones. I don't know what's wrong with him.
Here is my tummy nine days after my surgery! Man, I really need to do some sit-ups! lol... just look at the little cuts, not the fat! Right now it just looks like my tummy was in a fight with a cat or something. Five little cuts. The biggest one is right below my belly button. That one hurts when I'm wearing jeans and have to bend over to do something at work. Just a little tender.

So, I'm doing really well. I am thrilled to be back at work! I found some things out about myself through all of this. I need to have a purpose. I can't just sit with out something to do for every long. I love my job. I really love my job. I love going there, knowing what I'm doing and doing it very well. I am really going to miss breeding. I have to take a month off. I have to feel like I've accomplished something at the end of the day, that more important to me then I ever knew. I love being good at what I do. I don't know if I could ever just stay home with kids and not have a job in the farming industry. I would miss it. I have a funny sort of passion for it. I also came to find that I have done a very good job at making a city boy into a farmer. He's good at it. He doesn't act like he doesn't know what's going on anymore - he's a wonderful farmer! I am really going to miss working with him when he will have to quit or cut back when school starts. What a blessing to be able to have a best friend who your married to and can work with, what's better then that!?!

Haha, I could never have an organ in a jar but pictures are oddly fascinating. I don't have anything that good--just chest x-rays from my immigration exam and lungs are fairly boring. So does a person without a gallbladder have to eat or do anything differently? I think I'm sadly uneducated about gallbladders and I've never given mine a second thought.:-P Glad you're healing.:-)
