Surgery is over:) Expander gone bye bye!!!! ( Touch photo for full picture 😷)

Had a successful day😀 .  I'm still kinda loopy from the anesthesia but feeling pretty well. I'm really tired so I'll make this short and sweet!!!! I am so thankful for my hubby, kiddos, family, friends, and Dr. Hatef. If you ever need a plastic surgeon, He is your man. So kind and compassionate. And very thoughtful to his patients. [...]

Missing Dad........

This photo was made on Christmas Day, 2013. On March 16, 2014, my dad passed away. It would take a book to tell about him. He was extremely smart. He could process numbers in his head before I could get the answer on a calculator. He taught college classes without ever having been to college. He loved to hunt big game and his house is evidence of that :). He loved to tell stories and he was a huge sports fan. He could pretty much talk about any subject you wanted to talk about. He was an avid reader. But the best part of my dad- he was a good father. Oh how he loved me!!! His countenance was always kind and even-tempered. He never lost his temper with me and his words were gentle and wise. He and mom taught me about God. He was very generous man who loved to bless others. He loved people and he especially loved his children and grandchildren.[...]

A few thoughts on the power of the tongue......

My body has been going through so many changes- one of which is the medicine I've been told I need to take for 5-10 years. That's a really long time!!! I've been taking it since early January and I am definitely starting to feel some effects.  My family can probably give you more insight (ha) but here are a few of the noticeable ones so far. [...]

They're sisters, not twins😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

Yep. That's what Doc. Hatef said. Just a little breast humor.😊

Reconstruction is set up and my new size is chosen. Just think Dolly Parton and you'll have it pictured. I think it will be a great addition. And they are making them special for me. Handmade in Hollywood. I even got the ones that have a glow in the dark switch. Helps when the electricity goes out. Hahahahaha. Again, a little (big) breast humor. That was pretty witty, huh? Oh, and we could talk about the part where Dr. Dan discussed some liposuction to fill in some areas that may need a little extra umph. . . The good news is that I have so many wonderful choices of places to choose from. . . So much "good " fat. Oh brother:(((([...]

Celebrating today!!!

Genetic testing back😊 All good news!! No cancer mutations!! Thanking God for this terrific news. Going tomorrow to come up with a "game plan" for the future. As for my kids, sister, and other relatives, this is monumental  news for their future as well. Still some decisions to be made, but these results will definitely help me and my doctors with that. [...]

Some thoughts about joy. . .

 I have had so much on my mind lately. And a lot of it has to do with cancer, my life, my kids, my future, my relationship with God, my attitude, my example, and my growth. I have learned much from these last few months. But, a verse from James keeps popping in my head. [...]
