Top ten things I learned from my hysterectomy . . .

10. Vicodin is proof of a loving God.

9. Warm prune juice works eventually--and comprehensively.

8. Your friend will tell you that coconut (in macaroon form) works too--after the prune juice has kicked in.

7. Nothing in one's closet adequately camoflauges swelly belly.

6. When the only way you get a "vacation" is by having a major organ shredded and sucked out through a straw . . . maybe your life is out of balance.

5. Women have a higher pain tolerance than men, but men have a higher dirt tolerance; it's genetic.

4. When you have a ten-pound lifting restriction, you discover everything in your house weighs ten pounds.

3. Cats make better post-surgery companions than dogs.

2. A visit from a friend brings the best kind of healing.

1. Laugh--even when it hurts.

  1. Oh, I just feel better all over knowing that. Definitely taking notes. I can see this has many applications. :) You make the roughest day seem worth it with a little humor.
