Thirteen days ago, I underwent major surgery and had an abdominoplasty done to reconstruct my midsection and restore my muscles now that I am oficially (surgically) done having children. I have experienced so many emotions and the journey to where I am right now in my view of myself and my body has been so complex that I have struggled to even write about it. I have been slowly constructing a blog post to encapsulate it all, but between the painkillers, frequent naps and deep boredom of just lying here recovering, the writing is hard to complete. Instead, I'd rather window-shop online for shoes and dream of all of the summer outfits I can put together on my newly cinched-up body once I can stand up for more than 10 minutes at a time without feeling like I need a nap. Oh how sexy it feels to be exhausted by just standing around being useless. Oh my.
