Random Things Happening Behind the Scenes at Bricks ‘n Blooms
What a week it was!
It was a bit quiet here overall from the norm.
I didn’t do a whole lot because…I had surgery on Tuesday and just came home on Thursday.
It was pretty major too.
I had to have a hysterectomy due to uterine fibroids that made me severely anemic.
I didn’t even realize how sick I was, until about a month ago, I needed to be hospitalized from severe anemia.
As a mom, I’m so used to just going, going, and going, that I just didn’t realize how depleted my body was from the anemia.
To make a long story short, I haven’t been feeling great the last several months but I gotta tell you.
Even though I’m post-op, I am feeling SO MUCH BETTER!!!
And the recovery is going well.
Before the surgery, the fibroids were so big, I looked and felt like I was pregnant.
I was so weighted down from them!
But after being home the last few days, I’m more mobile and feeling a little better and a little stronger every day.
So all is well now.
Now that we’ve got the fibroids out, I’m feeling a lot better but taking things slow.
But I have even more news.
WE ARE MOVING!!!!!
This one has been under wraps for a bit.
But we found a gorgeous home locally that we are super excited about.
And now, just waiting on a buyer for my home.
So if you know anyone who is looking to move to an amazing school district in a beautiful suburban community in New Jersey, let me know!
And yes, I will miss my gardens, but seriously…wait until you see the new house.
The gardens are incredible!
I can’t wait to show you.
