Wish me Luck!

I'm heading to the hospital in a little while for the tata replacement surgery. This should be a "drive by" type of operation that should be very quick. I hope. Me and anesthesia don't seem to agree.

I have been without boobs for over a year now since I don't really consider my expanders boobs. One is popped and the other has only been filled one time. It's gonna be quite weird to fill out a bra (even if it's only a B).

I chose barely B cups because I'm not used to them anymore. And also because I confess to being quite worried about the skin that's left. Radiation fried me to a crisp and although I've healed, there's a tremendous amount of scar tissue. Dr. S tells me he can clean it up some with scar tissue removal to help my range of motion. I SO HOPE THAT WORKS OUT!

I get to have clear fluids and jello until 10 a.m. Isn't that nice? :) I wonder why I couldn't have the same the day of my big surgery? I was a freakin mess and being so hungry made the whole thing worse.

Bill the super dooper wonder husband is going with me today, as is Mom. Poor guy, he simply has to wait but then, he's used to that. This will be my 5th surgery for this BC thing. That's pretty sad.

I'm off to get Jackie ready for school. Hope this post finds everyone well and happy.

Cheers everyone!

By the time you'll read this, you'll have boobs!!
So hopefully this is the last of a long string of surgeries and that you recover quickly!
