My Family, Post nipple reconstruction/revision

Fluffy Buddies

I went to the salon today for a touch up.  Sitting there I decided to change it up a little, 40 pounds lost and 4 bra sizes deserved a change.  Went a bit darker with a touch of auburn and a little different on the cut. Turned out nice I think.  A little change is good!

So, last night Madison and I sat for our nightly reading session.  Now, I want to start with the fact that she is doing a great job!  She is enjoying herself and her confidence is growing.  With that on the record, I can not believe how different this experience is versus the one had with Megan.  I am not comparing, just saying.  She will read a word correctly 3 times in a row but then in another sentence totally different.  She is so much like I was am.  Focus was never a strong suit, my mind aways wandering.  I find myself sometimes looking into her eyes trying to see behind them to figure out what is going on in that little head.

We come across the word “friends”, not a word I expected her to get but it was her attempt that changed the course of the session. She calmly came to the word and confidently blurted out “fluffy buddies”.  I guess there must have been something strange on my face because she started to laugh, then laughter turned to hysterics which of course set me into laughter.  I so love how she does not take herself too seriously.  I love to watch her laugh. I guess Fluffy buddies can be friends too!

And here she is today, teaching the “class” sight words.

    1. I had been dieting for about a year prior to surgery, walking, elliptical and just watching portion sizes. I lost 20 pounds. 10 pounds came from the mastectomy and DIEP surgery itself. The rest has come from the fact that I look better and feel better so I am motivated to keep going. I have lost 10 pounds since July 2 and hope to drop 10-20 more before our Disney trip in February. Today I walked 3 miles which is a great day. I try to do a mile a day or 20+ minutes on the elliptical but does not happen every day. Reduced carbs and just trying to make better choices.
