A New Me

Well, after four times being turned down since 1986, I was finally approved for a breast reduction. 
This journey began in September at a regular Doctor appointment. I asked them about it and got an appointment within a month. It took no time before they approved me. I was just about the happiest ever. And a bit overwhelmed. I mean surgery at 27 is one thing. But at 51 it is entirely different. 
I managed to keep my excitement to a minimum because having a major surgery would worry that bunch. 
This took place last Tuesday so I have had just over a week of recovery. What a difference 5 hours made. It has been up & down, not much sleep but I figure another week & I can get out and start a new beginning of comfort. 
This will lead me to the weight loss I have been craving. My stationary bike is patiently waiting. 
My sweet husband has been a little overwhelmed at times but has shined in taking care of me. 

I just have to say I wholeheartedly recommend this if you have ever thought about it. Pain is hard. Laying around for two weeks is even harder....but so worth it. Going to have to find those before shots to go with some new after ones. 

Live life to it's fullest. You only have one.
