exchange surgery day!
no more armpit foobs!
(I put bandaids over the exit site, over the black stitch holding the drain in place, and then one or two under the area on the drain where the black stitch stops)
last day with drains-hooray!
I have some major rippling when I lay down, and emotionally/visually it's kind of hard to take. Right now I'm at the stage where I need to decide if it's something worth trying to have more procedures to fix, or if I need to learn to be happy. I think it could be very easy to fall down a path of always wanting to have things "tweaked"-and there's nothing wrong with that to an extent-but I also need to remember that I definitely wasn't perfect before, and at some point I have to accept what I have the same way we accept our God given bodies. Not that that was an easy thing to do before! I still have no regrets that I went down this path. The peace that comes from knowing I've done all I can to protect myself from breast cancer is huge. Knowing that all the screening and worries from the past, is in the past, is such a burden lifted!
