Today was my first post-op visit with the gyno doctor. I made sure to do the "big shave" this morning when I showered! I absolutely detest shaving my legs. Why do we have hair on them anyway? So, I headed off to work for about 5 hours. It was soon time for me to head home - I wanted to shower again so I didn't smell like bloody girl. Ew gross. I seriously do not know how women wear pads when they are on their periods. They are disgusting. They slip and slide around. They are either too far up front or too far to the back. They smell. It feels like you're wearing a diaper! They are just gross.
Tampons, you are my friend. I love you. I'm sick of you, but I love you. Poor Melon Man...before my surgery, he was buying two boxes of these a week - and not the 18 count boxes either - the 36 counters! Either way though...you are truly one of God's greatest inventions.
So....hello husband. Hello nookie. Hello! And....the next time I do bleed...hello tampons!!!!!! Now I'm gonna go look for the receipt for that unopened package of pads and take them back because I do not need them now!
Oh....and one other fantastic thing....I actually lost 4 pounds over the holidays instead of gaining like most people! Yay!
