Are you okay?

I'm getting asked this a lot these days as I heal and recover from the surgery.

Usually by people that know or by people that just found out but know our history.

There is no right answer for this question and it changes depending on my mood.

I am healing. I am getting my strength back. I am dealing with the fact that I cannot have children. I think I am as okay as I'm going to be for a while.

There is no quick way to get over the loss of such an important dream. All you can do is take it one day at a time.

And that is what I'm doing. And reading and knitting and watching a ton of TV and playing a lot of WoW.

One day at a time.

I get my medical clearance in a week (I hope) then back to work the following Monday. I'm looking forward to it.

It takes time. It takes a surprising amount of time. And at the same time, it's surprising how little time it takes, really, looking back: it passes.

Talking about the physical part. Me, I'm still waiting for this bag thing to be finished and for me to go back to normal. (Right.)
