God has a plan... didn't know my plan included implants!
Dr. Treece is my plastic surgeon. He is wonderful. He has been working with Dr. Lilly for 19yrs. So once Dr. Lilly is finished with the mastectomy, Dr. Treece inserts these expander things. They are like boobs that don't have anything in them yet. Each month Dr. Treece inserts saline in them through a needle. Crazy. Like "blossoming" over the summer. Kind of reminds me of my 8th grade year. Bad joke. Sorry. Dr. Treece then sees me later in the fall and does the final implants. Who knew? Me implants! Everyone says God has a plan... didn't know my plan included implants!
I wake up every morning thankful that I am here on this earth. I can't help but look at things differently. I feel like each person in my life is reaching out to me and holding me up. At every turn, I feel it. So, the office visit was different, new, scary. But with the support and love of everyone I can laugh, cry and push through this. Thank you. Doesn't seem enough to say those two little words. But for now... Thank you.
