Thank You! I’m happy to be here!

My doctor actually called me on the 4th and said he had a last minute cancellation for the 6th — two Thursdays ago — and asked if I wanted to move up the surgery.

I did.

It’s done. I’m 11 days out today.

There’s something really incredible about being “real” again and this feeling reinforces that my implants were indeed “unnatural”, like you said, and not a part of me. In retrospect, I’m not sure I ever got used to them either.

Reaquainting myself with my body has not been all roses and sunshine, but I feel like me again. I feel like a real girl (and sound like Pinnocchio!)

I may just write about it.

Also…the way you describe your wife is full of love and light. It’s beautiful. Thank you for sharing that!

Mama, writer, lover, fighter — I wear my heart on my sleeve because my pants pockets are too small.
