Pixie Dust

Lately I’ve gotten this question a lot, so I just want to get this out there. No, I am not planning to keep the pixie cut. Thank you for those of you who think it really suits me, and brings out my eyes and all of that but when I look at the pixie in […]

Ain’t Nothing Gonna Break My Stride

Nobody’s gonna slow me down, oh no, I’ve got to keep on movin’! OK, so maybe I do need to slow down some days.  In general, I’m still doing well. The drains have been out a full week now, and on Thursday I get the stitches out and the tape off of my incisions. I’ve […]


My husband hates it when that’s my answer to anything… especially via text. He can’t tell, is that the, “yes, but do so at your own peril” version, or the “meh, whatevs” version. I don’t see a little bit of mystery in a 20+ year relationship as a bad thing… But this week, I don’t […]

Damn It

Another little update- this week has been going OK other than the drain thing.  I thought that the rule was less than 30 cc for 48 hours, so I was ALL excited to get Righty out today, since I’ve been putting out less than 20 cc per day. And did I mention that because the […]

Insult To Injury

New Boobs On Monday

And a fire dance through the night! In 12 hours, I’ll be reporting to the hospital for my reconstruction.  How much I’m guessing I’ll sleep in those hours. Close to none. I’m feeling so many emotions, but are the forefront, are scared, anxious, excited. I check in at 9a tomorrow.  Surgery itself is scheduled to start […]

Don’t Stop Believin’

Yet again I find myself wide awake when I’d really rather be sleeping, and hoping that by banging my whirling thoughts on my keyboard, I’ll be able to get a few hours sleep. I feel like a broken record, but I know a lot of the insomnia comes from discomfort. I wake up in the […]

So Tired, Tired Of Waiting

Tired of waiting for BOOBS! The exciting thing, is that the wait is almost over.  By this time next week, I’ll be home after my OUTPATIENT surgery to get rid of the rocks in my chest, and put in some nice, soft gummy bears. (Yes, I know I’ve spelled like 4 different ways.  I haven’t […]
