Pump up the volume...



pump up the volume, pump up the volume - dance! dance!

OK so I normally would not put this on my blog but it was just too surreal to not. I went in today for my first "expansion" and it was the funniest thing to be chatting with the surgeon as he is injecting saline into my chest and I can see it "grow" right before my eyes. How completely strange. I do feel much more normal now. You wouldn't know that I had double mastectomies 3 weeks ago - there is definitely more "shape" there.

Now if this darn hair would just grow. This is 8 weeks after my last chemo treatment. I am going to give you a weekly or by-monthly photo progress report. It doesn't feel like real hair yet - mostly like baby hair.

I asked my doc about exercising and it looks like I need to take it slow for awhile. I guess I will be doing the waltz for a bit before stepping into my hip hop shoes.

But just think a good waltz lets you feel like your flying across floor. I think you more than deserve to fly, don't you.

That's pretty cool, really. Much faster than waiting for mother nature the first time around. :-) And I think your hair looks great! I'm sure it won't happen as fast as you wish it would, but there's hair there and there wasn't before. Nice tan you're sporting, too. :-)
