Better

I’m doing ok! There has been LOTS of sleeping and taking it easy, which is glorious. The pain is subsiding.

I have taken many peeks at my lady lumps and they’re cute! And soft! So soft! I just keep touching them. I am no longer the Boobinator, all hard and robotic. The 5 inch scar across each breast is now a 6 or 7 inch scar. Blargh. But whatevs.

I was able to take a shower yesterday, which was refreshing as there is nothing like surgery to make you feel like you’ve been camping in a dumpster.

My follow up is on Monday where he’ll probably change the dressings and talk about taking care of the scars.

I’m down to one Percocet every 4 hours and could probably wean off of them completely tomorrow. We’ll see.

My mom took the kids for the night and it is oh. so. quiet. She is the best for taking them. I am holed up in bed with books, mags, Season 3 of Big Love AND cake batter ice cream, bien sur.

Shout out to the girl with a broken heart. A genuine hug to you. Once my breasties heal, I am available for TPing the heartbreaker’s abode or other such shenanigans.

Great news. I'll be in the Big Love love-in with you, sans ice cream.

If shenanigans include boob parties (where, you know, we party. With our BOOBS.) and boob pastries (where, you know, we eat flaky bits. Off our BOOBS.), then I'm in. BOOBS FOR THE WIN. Wheeeee!

So, so glad you're feeling better, Mrs. Nucleus of Love and Joy and Wonderfulness. Give yerself and Bill P. a big smooch for me.

Emily!! Wonderful! SO wonderful! I am glad all went well and hope (knocking on wood) that you don't have to see the inside of another hospital for 60 years, or so.

Actually laughed out loud at "nothing like surgery to make you feel like you’ve been camping in a dumpster." Yup. So well said.

Now all that is left to do is schedule your Maxim photo shoot. I look forward to your cover, I know you will rock it. Don't forget to "smize." Xo, J
