We just got back from an incredible trip to the Bahamas to celebrate Mom and Dad's 50th anniversary. Yes, they took us with them - to celebrate the fact that Mom and I are still here.
We stayed at our favorite place - Atlantis. Stef and Jackie came with us and we had a blast. Beautiful, incredible weather the entire time. There was a 50 degree difference in temperature between the Bahamas and D.C. when we landed at National Airport last night. Brrrr! Big time.
Something about those islands just soothes the soul. We're always really busy but it's simply so relaxing to be in that place. A good healing for everyone. The kids did lots of activities and clubs and rode all the slides. A very fun time.
We're home now though and I guess I've got to kick myself in the butt to schedule my next surgery. This should be a "drive by" operation to swap out my implants. I'm not looking forward to it at all. I much prefer not to be poked and prodded if I can help it. I've infinitely enjoyed not visiting doctors regularly since April :) At this time last year, I was collecting hair from the shower drains, sink and pillows as I was losing my hair to chemo. It's hard to believe it has been a year.
But I gotta do it so maybe I'll call the plastic surgeon at the end of the week. Maybe being the operative word. My left implant is pretty deflated. If you remember, it sprung a leak with the installation of my mediport last year. Not the most attractive booby in the house :)
Hi to all of you. Even if I haven't been writing on here, you're all in my thoughts every day.
