Update On My Recovery and Sausage and Broccoli Skillet

Today marks 4 weeks since I had my total abdominal hysterectomy! Time is flying by!  I want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers during my recovery. 

I am definitely in a better place now than I was 4 or even 6 weeks ago. My incision is healed and the yeast infection that I had developed around my incision is gone. I still have a little bit of internal pain especially on my left side, but it is more annoying than painful. 

I am slowly starting to do more things around the house. I am able to go grocery shopping at 1 store without getting tired (I am still not up to marathon grocery sessions where I hit 3-4 stores in one day). I have started to do laundry again. And I notice that I am not as tired as I used to be, which is a good thing! My body tells me if I have done too much and there have been a couple busy days where I have been dog tired by 9PM. But I have come a long way toward recovery. I see my doctor again in 2 weeks where hopefully he will lift all my restrictions!! 

One of the things that I have been doing during my recovery is sharing recipes on facebook that look really good. I like to try making new recipes, but a lot of time I find that I don't have time with how our schedules are. However, since I have been home, I decided to break out of our rut and try one....

Sunday night for dinner I made Sausage and Broccoli Skillet, (the recipe can be found on "Fun Learning Life"). The only thing I did different was I used turkey smoked sausage instead of the kielbasa. I had everything on hand, except for the tumeric. I served it with pear slices on the side.

Overall, my family's reaction was 2 thumbs up! Rebecca even had a second helping! I will definitely be making this again. 

Hope everyone has a happy Tuesday! 


  1. Thanks for sharing that recipe, love quick and easy on some busy days! Glad, too, that you are starting to feel more like yourself. : )

    1. Thanks. As I look into going back to work in a couple weeks, I am stockpiling quick and easy recipes!
