just sayin hi here. i see my sister and dear bf have been doing a nice job keeping you up to date. tuesday and weds were just unbelieveably crappy. but today is sooooo much better. and, of course, it helps that the results already look fabulous. i expected to be horrified by the bloody bruises and swelling for a few weeks. but there’s none of that here! they’re awesome! now i understand why reconstructed women insist on lifting up their shirts to everyone (though i promised myself a long tome ago i would not be one of those women, so no worries!).
my assessment of this country’s medical care as top notch is untarnished. but my sister and i keep saying there is an interesting contrast of forward-thinking and middle ages medicine. namely, they have me on nothing but asprine at this point. i’m not too happy with that. the pain is not so bad. but i think knowing that there’s something stronger waiting in the wings is important. all my US friends that did this had vicodin and what-have-you at the ready.
i hate to be short, but this has already tired me out. i still get head woozy-ness here and there. weird and fatiguing. But i’ve made it through the worst of it. if i complain, just remind me of that sweet fact: the worst is behind me.
PS. thank you so much for you comments and messages. they mean so much!
