So, we've gotten Plastic Surgeon Dr. L in the loop about radiation, and he still wants to go ahead with my expansion that we scheduled for today. The procedure was a little uncomfortable last time, but I'm actually thrilled because this is the final expansion and will involve a little less fluid. It also makes sense to cross this off the list now since I don't even have a meeting to start the process of radiation scheduled and should have plenty of time to settle down and heal in between everything. And it always feels good to cross these big steps off the list. It really feels like progress. So just because I'm feeling brave, here's me, post-op, pre-expansion #1.

While I get ready for that visit, poor Mark is at the DMV trying to update his driver's license. We're planning a few much-needed fun days, including the kickoff of March Madness, so we'll have some happy posts to share soon. For now, take a look at some of the fabulous gifts and cards you've sent me. I love them all.

Who wouldn't love the gift of a fart machine? Enjoy!!! I imagine ours are the most immature of get well gifts, but what did you expect?

Lots of love,
