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.
