Pre-op #2

I met with the plastic surgeon today. I told him he was my lollypop after a shot. I am hoping he can make my tatas look somewhat normal - at least under clothes ( I brought him cookies.... you think that will help?). It sounds like recovery wont be as bad as I was expecting but I am going in expecting the worst so I will be pleasantly surprised. He wants me up and moving around the next day and told me that would most likely be the worst day. I will have drains in for at least a week - maybe 2 - then the journey to final reconstruction begins. Pretty strange posing for picture of my naked breasts today - I could put them on my blog.... but I wont. The only exciting pics you will find here are of bald heads ;)

We found out that we wont know anything about the cancer until the pathology report comes back. It could take anywhere from 48 hours to a week to get the results back after surgery. That will be the hardest part - waiting for that news.

I'm thinking of you. I'm hoping it all goes smoother than you hope, your recovery is easier than anyone's has ever been, and that you're happy with the result. I'm sending you so much love and good wishes... that along with your cookies should do the trick. :-)
