We have a date for the next round of surgery, November 19th. I am referring to it as either “tieing up loose ends” or “the clean up”. My surgeons scheduler chuckled a little but I don’t think either of us thought it would be a good idea to refer to it in such a way to him. The consent is calling it, “revision of bilateral reconstructed breasts and revision of abdominal scar”. I think it should really say revision to the revision but hey who am I?
It has been over 3 months now since the Bilateral Prophylactic Mastectomy and DIEP flap surgery and almost 2 months since the nipple reconstruction. This has been a long process.
SO more blood work, another early morning arrival at the hospital, more anesthesia. I wonder if I will miss all of the coordination, tests, scheduling and recovery once all of the procedures are over? (KIDDING!) I am glad that we have this scheduled, one step closer to finished, I hope!
ON a different note, Madison lost another tooth today and it happened at school. She was so excited when she got off the bus wearing the tooth necklace given to her to secure the tooth. It was almost like she knew it was going to be a special day. When she woke up she requested to wear a “pretty” dress and “high heels”. I see a visit from the tooth fairy this evening!
