Back to Work

Well my first day back at work is going a lot better than I thought it would. Could barely sleep last because I was so worried about how I would handle questions and patients. I actually only had one moment that I guess could've turned bad but I handled it pretty well. One of patients actually said he saw me at the airport getting pushed in a wheelchair and noticed I had not been at work for awhile.  I just told him I had surgery and left it at that.
I also went in and had my 6 week check up with my OB Dr. yesterday. Again I was pretty nervous, and had so many questions that I wanted to ask. She said I am healing fine and am allowed to resume all of my previous activities. I still am a little worried about my uterus though.  It's probably not worth worrying to much about now, and my Dr. said there really isn't a way for me to injure it. She also said she would prefer us to wait at least 6 months to try and get pregnant again. It sounds like such a long time but I know my body needs the time to heal and get strong again emotionally and physically.
I also offically signed up for the March for Babies this year in Whittier, Alaska. The walk is a tribute to dads on Fathers Day and goes through the Whittier tunnel which is the longest undergrround tunnel in North America. If anyone wants to sponsor me and my team follow the link below


  1. Happy to see that you're doing well today!

  2. thanks, definitely better than I thought

  3. Great that you're first day back is going OK :) I can still remember walking from the carpark to the ward where I work hoping with all my strength that no-one would ask me what happened out of fear that I might burst out crying, given I clearly wasn't pregnant anymore. Then when I got to the end of the day and the end of the week... I felt so hurt than no-one except my boss said anything at all. I guess no-one knew what to say.... but it hurt to feel as though she was already being forgotten by others. March for Babies is a great idea :)) xo

  4. I hear ya on the feeling like others have forgotten her. Even though it can hurt sometimes to talk about it, its nice to know people still acknowledge what happened. I love it especially when I hear someone else say his name
