Thank you all for the tremendous support during the process of my surgery! I was so happy to experience the healing process of creating and decorating my own version of the transformation and honoring of my uterus during my first weekend home from the hospital...complete with lovely angels, charms, shells, and sea glass. It kind of looks like an elaborate Valentine's heart!

I am doing quite well. The experience was blessed and I was so magnificently supported and cared for. I am very grateful. The Blanket of Love experience just before my surgery began was amazing. I have never experienced anything quite so blissful! Fifty friends and family members participated! I kept telling the anesthesiologist that I would not need any drugs prior to surgery. I was so relaxed and filled with love. My surgeon is skilled and wonderful. I had a beautiful healing room with a view of the Flatiron mountains and room service meals whenever I desired them. I am experiencing a small setback today following many days of feeling so wonderful. I think that I overdid a bit yesterday...Another lesson in patience and slowing down...Alas.

I am missing my daily interactions with all of my wonderful, creative blog family. My energy is still a little slow. I will regain my momentum soon I am sure.

Yes, you will certainly regain your momentum and then some... and soon! I love your uterus tribute! Will you have a chance to show it to your surgeon? Are you back on your own now... daughter gone?

Gentle hugs, Robin A.

I love your blog, I can across it accidently and have now added it to my favourites. I also made an art doll as a farewell to my uterus.
Cheers

Camilla,
I saw your post on Leslie's blog and had to come and visit yours...
I love your dolls, and your alter, and the picture of your lovely kitty in the boat sleeping and playing in the spirit house just blew me away! We have lots in common!
I make dolls, grew up playing in the ocean ( a bit further North) and I had my lovely uterus removed not that long ago...
Oh, and I love kitty's!
I have to post a few pictures of my best furry friend in the world...
Where would we be with out the love and companionship of our beloved animal friends?
I love your blog and hope to visit it often and see how well you are recovering!
