Eulogy for a Friend or A New Beginning

Thank you for everything you've done for me. You've been with me for 35 years and there's something to be said for that. You've housed three children for me, and we share the sorrow of one more who just wasn't meant to be.

I had to let you go. The pain that I've been experiencing due to your illness has been excruciating and has lessened my quality of life. It wasn't an easy decision; certainly not one I made in haste. I hope you understand.

Anyone reading, take a moment of silence for my womb if you feel so inclined.

So, I had a hysterectomy. Such a long story. I'll go into detail soon. I just needed to get it out. Pun intended.

I'm recovering well. I'm happy with my decision and my surgery.
