Would you ever consider having plastic surgery to "stop" the signs of aging or just for purely cosmetic? Have you ever has cosmetic surgery?
I love that this is the prompt for today, and that I was able to find this quote. Why? Because tomorrow morning, bright and early, I will be headed to the hospital for reconstructive surgery. After all the time I spent in the hospital LAST year (chemo, miscellanous infections, surgery and radiation), this is a hospital stay that I am actually enthusiastic about.
After this surgery, and whatever recovery time it takes, plus another procedure later in the year, I will FINALLY be finished with this journey, and be able to feel like I'm "normal" again. I've been wearing a prosthetic for most of this year, which has given me the illusion of normal, but wearing it is what made me even more sure that I wanted to go through with the reconstruction. I just couldn't picture myself dealing with the "fake boob" for the rest of my life.
I'll update on my progress when I get home from the hospital and feel up to typing again, hopefully sometime next week. In the meantime, I hope you'll continue to enjoy my already scheduled posts.
