When a store bought card just won’t do…
One of my good friends was having a horrible time with her uterus. I won’t go into it, but it sure made me glad I
didn’t have one. When her doctor told her it had to come out, she was excited. She’d already had her kids and she
was sick of having periods. She couldn’t wait to get rid of it.
I couldn’t find a good hysterectomy sympathy card anywhere. So, being the sensitive guy that I am, I made my own.
When she woke up in her hospital room after surgery, this card was waiting for her.
Dear Uterless, (That’s not her real name)
My condolences to you on your loss.
I was so sorry to hear that your uterus didn’t make it.
I know that it’s little comfort now, but we need to remember
that your uterus had a rich and wonderful life.
We are but Mortals. We will all, someday,
make that lonely trip to pathology.
Take comfort in that I’m sure your uterus is in a far better place now.
A beautiful place, where your uterus can sing and jump and
play with all the other little uteri.
If you ever feel a void within, try and think of the good times you
and your uterus shared together.
Things will get better.
