The Grace of a Hysterectomy

 

Hysterectomy- the surgical removal of the uterus- thus ending the ability to become pregnant.

If you are facing this, let me first say that I am so sorry.

I am right there with you.

This is a great loss. It hurts. It’s unfair. You don’t deserve this.

Accepting this loss is hard.

Above is the video of my story and things that have helped me accept this loss with grace.

 

I am sorry for your loss.

 

But just know, all is not lost.

You may not ever be able to become pregnant, but that does not mean you will not ever be a mother.

Chosen blood is just as strong as physical blood. Adoption is always an option ❤

Your hysterectomy will take your ability to get pregnant, but it will also take the days of agonizing pelvic pain/cramps, the misery of periods, the bleeding, embarrassment of spotting, the fear of wearing white, the fear of dropping iron levels from severe cycles and the fear of a miscarriage away forever.

Think about what you are gaining- better days ahead.

You are not less of a woman because you are facing a hysterectomy.

Your ability to carry a child does NOT determine your self worth.

This is not your fault.

You are still you, despite the losses you’ve encountered. 

Who you are is determined by what is in your heart, how you treat people and how deeply you love others.

All is not lost ❤

    I’m so sorry for your pain. I had to have a complete hysterectomy in my 30s, but I did have one daughter, so I was blessed with her. That being said, you are right that a biological child is not the only way to become a parent. Blood is not the strongest tie. Love is. I, too, had severe endometriosis and was constantly anemic due to the loss of blood. After surgery, I was surprised at how much better I felt after all the healing process. Prayers for you and all who are going through this.

    I love you, girl. You are doing an amazing job. God is using this awful thing to touch so many people. My heart breaks. I feel a tiny bit of your emotions through your writing. You are blessed. Crowned a queen. More precious than all the wealth in the world. My prayers are with those who are experiencing this devastation. Sweet, friend, you are never alone.
