Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope everyone got to eat lots of turkey and spend time with family. I love the holidays!!!

Monday I had my next surgery....I had my reconstructive surgery. I was so shocked that it was outpatient but was glad to be able to go home in the same day. I was in and out of there in no time. They took me back around 9 and I really can't remember what time I was headed home because I was so drugged up. I was even trying to eat crackers in the car and kept falling asleep while chewing. Billy had to keep waking me up and telling me to chew...after about 2 1/2 crackers I said it wasn't worth me getting chocked!

Recooperation has been going pretty good. I have really only hurt in my stomach area. My chest isn't even bothering me. Can't see my new boobies right now because they are all bandaged up :) Anything will be better than those tissue expanders! I am just so glad to have one more thing checked off on my list.

If you haven't seen me hair is coming back wavy. It is the funniest thing. My plastic surgeon told me Monday that he could give me some pointers on how to take care of it since he has curly hair :) I am just glad it is coming back! I have had so many people tell me I should keep the short we will see.

Next up in this journey will be to have my ovaries removed...would love to have it done before the year is over but I think I will have to wait until summer break. I plan to call the doc next week to see what the recovery time is on that.

I already have three appointments scheduled the first week of Christmas break (CTscan, arthritis, oncologist,and maybe one more)...and I think you have to wait a month after this surgery to do looks like with my school year it will be easier to just plan that right at the beginning of the summer.

Well just wanted to give a quick update since I am about to go stir crazy being Lazy this week.....never thought I would say that I am tired of being lazy..but I is different when you are told to take it easy and not do anything!

hahahah...Have a great rest of your Thanksgiving day!

And as Jackson said today for his blessing "We are thankful that Mommy lost cancer"!!!
