I am a mother of a wonderful 7 yr old boy. I had to have a hystorectomy in 2005. I was 27 yrs old. I have not once regreted the decision to have it done. God blessed me with my son. I was separated from my husband when i had the surgery. Of course i am now divorced and remarried. My ex and I have made a strong effort to make sure our son knows he has a united family. This was not always easy for us but it was important for our son. We are great parents. Many times in divorce parents get so wrapped up in their feelings for each other they for get how their actions effect the children. It takes a lot of self control to direct your feelings where they should go and not force yours on your child. I have been divorced from my son's father for 4 yrs now. You would never know that he has been through so much because my ex and I kept our divorce between us. I have one of the most amazing son because of this. He has never had to question his place in his parents lives. It is never the childs fault. Hope this can help someone in a similar situation. Always put your child first! I love being the parent of an only child I wouldn't have it any other way even if i could have more dont think i would.
