February 7, 2012

This is my first post in 2012, so Happy New Year! Or more accurately, Happy Groundhog/Valentine’s Day!

I am finally free of tubes and on my way to a full recovery from the recent double mastectomy. It is definitely weird to look in the mirror and see a flat chest staring back at me. I have been a C cup for most of my life, so I got used to having an ample bosom. It had its obvious perks (no pun intended), however, I am LOVING my new look. It is so refreshing to be able to slip on a comfy T with, wait for it – NO BRA. What an amazing feeling!

The next step is for the incisions to continue to heal, and then back to the doc in two weeks for my first enhancement. The plan is to periodically fill the tissue expanders until we get to a size that I am comfortable with. I am thinking B cup this time around. No more underwire for this girl!

The best part about having the final surgery behind me is that I feel DONE. Done with cancer for good – hopefully. At least for now certainly. Clearing out the cobwebs. Shaking off the residual chemo brain. Getting excited about the future. It is all so good.

I am starting to work on the MG spring and summer campaign for 2012. Keep your eyes peeled for website updates, new T-shirts and fundraising dates. I am also going to make myself available for speaking engagements again soon! Get ready – potential and possibility are just around the corner!

    Just a simple YAY! Looking at the yellow rays of light that make up the background design on your site and feeling the warmth that your first post of 2012 brings! You are a rockstar in my book.
