Beth's surgery

Follow up on Beth's surgery last Friday:
Beth's doctor removed a baseball sized cyst from her ovary. There was so much internal scarring and damage that the dr. ended up performing an hysterectomy. Beth had approved this before, if the dr. could tell it was necessary, and it was. Beth prayed and prayed about it, and the level of pain she was in was CRAZY. I don't know if I can explain how bad it has been. She's been downing ibuprofen and her prescribed pain meds like they were water. When the dr. got in there and saw how bad it was, she couldn't believe Beth was functional. The dr. told us she was incredibly strong to be able to do anything with the level of damage going on inside her body.
Beth is in some pain from the surgery, but has described the pain as very different than what it was before...

OMG! I'm so glad it went well, but Wow! That's an awful lot to wake up to!
