When I first started this blog, I never thought I’d be saying (or typing) these words: I’m going for surgery!
Luckily it’s not a major health issue; I have a few fibroids and an ovarian cyst in my womb (all benign), something most women have at some point of their lives. However, mine has grown pretty big (imagine walking around with a tennis ball and a couple of golf balls in your abdomen 😱), so after 7 months of traditional Chinese medicine, it’s time for surgery. The gynaecologist doing my surgery is quite experienced (I can see his calendar is full of these kind of operation), so I’m sure I’m in good hands. 🙂
My surgery is scheduled for less than 48 hours from this post (to save you the trouble of calculating time zone differences 😆). It’s going to be my first time staying at a hospital overnight and having an operation, but based on some reading online, I expect I’ll be mostly sleeping for a couple of days after. 😅
In the meantime, I’ve scheduled a couple of video posts that I hope you’ll enjoy. 😀
I’ll post an update as soon I’m alert and have the energy to do so. Wish me luck!

It’s great that you’re optimistic about this surgery! Good luck. ❤
