SO I had my follow-up this morning. Pretty uneventful visit actually. He agreed that one boob was looking more north than the other but says it could take up to 3 months for healing and that they should align properly. He also feels the nipples will shrink down to a normal size. At the moment I feel like they arrive in a room at least a minute before I do. He told me to make another follow-up in 6 weeks. At that point if they are still uneven then he can make a small incision to lift the left boob. He can also reduce the size of the questionable nipple. I wanted more detail on what this would look like, in office? Hospital? He did not want to discuss it. Says we need to give it time to heal and let my body do it’s thing. If all works out we will not need to do anything. We shall see.
I was cleared to shower…YEAH! So much easier than washing my hair in the sink. I am also allowed to start wearing a bra, no under wire. We will discuss the bra on another post.
After the doctor I came home and picked up Madison for a big day! Meet the teacher at the Kindergarten. I was so proud of her! She did great! As we walked toward her building she told me to follow her. She showed me how to follow the red foot prints to get to the right building. They had a bus parked in the lot so the kids could go on and practice with the seat belts. Then we went into her classroom. She looked around and found her seat and sat so confidently. My baby, what a big girl! They had an opportunity to explore, listened to a story read by the teacher and met some other kids from the class.
I love that our district does this. Really allows the kids to get comfortable with the process. She told me that she wanted to be in bed early so she could be ready for school. She was asleep by 8pm…love it! I am the mother of a 3rd grader and a Kindergartener, where does the time go?
