Hi All
 
Im scheduled to be at the hospital at 7 am tomarrow, surgery is at 9. Im glad it is finally here but to tell you the truth Im not looking forward to being unable to do regular things for awhile. I don't worry about the pain I just hate the fact that you just can't get upa nd going like you usually do. Iam having the tram done on the right breast and a reduction and lift on the left one. The Dr says that I will be having 4 drains but should loose 1 before leaving the hospital. I really hated having the drain last time, it makes your everyday things a little harder to do. I just about pulled it out several times.
 
Well once again I will warn the Drs and nurses about all of the pink feathers, I look forward to (seeing) all of you in the morning.
 
L&H

Wow you are coming home after the tram???? What are these doctors thinking? My daughter was bent over by a nurse after her tram and it broke open a blood vessel, so they had to whisk her back to surgery. She was going into shock when her other doctor came in and saw her. Please, please, please be careful!!!! The pilot for the pc must be alerted so we will get there in time and I will be on it. Hugs for a great recovery, MK

Bernadette, I will be there with my pink boa, feathers flying!! I will try to stay out of the surgeons way. Last thing you need is a pink feather poking out of your incision, =) Love and prayers are here for you.

Good Luck, Bern.  I'll be praying for you here in the Catskills.  May you come out perked up and bouncy!

Dear Bernadette...We'll be thinking of you tomorrow! Just remember to keep pushing that little Morphine button, and you'll get plenty of rest! I have to tell you, my in-laws were due in the day I got out of the hospital, and I was running the vaccuum cleaner as soon as I got home, trying to get things ready for THEM! LOL So enjoy the quiet time while you have it!

Take care, and let us know how you like your new set of headlights. I hope they're everything you hoped for... big enough to light the road well, and set on "HIGH" beam!

Hugs...

Hi Everyone

Thanks for the replys and words of encouragement, and no MK I will be staying in the hospital 3-4 days Im not coming right home. I just worry about those drains because the one that I had for the mast was in just over a month. And speaking of the drain, I have a funny story for all of you that have had a mast and can relate to this. My Dr took the drain out last Wednesday and since then the cavity has slowly been filling up with fluid!!!!!!!! I have been slowly getting a booby again! LOL It is so funny to look at it I look like a pre teen getting ready for my first training bra on one side and then a DD on the other. What a contrast.

Yes Bev Im looking forward to my new "headlights" and a flat tummy. I feel like that part is a little gift for having to go thru all that I have. And I wont be running the vacuum when I get home, I got the house spiffy before tomarrow so that I wont worry about it when I come home. My daughter is coming on Saturday and my sister will be coming next week to help out, I cant wait for the company.

I will write back as soon as I can,
L&H
Bernadette

wow, thanks everyone for making it. I almost missed this one myself. Had to stop at the dry cleaners and pick up my boa. Thank goodness PCE can get off the ground when everything else in Philly is grounded. You know we are there for you. Wish you lots and lots of luck. Gentle hugs. Joyce

Well I know this is late, but I emailed you when I saw your email to me, so I snuck (sp?) onboard the PCE without anyone noticing!  LOL  Looking forward to hearing about your experience.  Take care of yourself!

Kathy

Hi All

Im hooooooommmmmmeeee, and I feel great, really! I have some tendernous in the mid section but It is from the gas, I have not been able to have a bowel movement yet. I have been able to get up and move around and hardly any pain. I have 2 great looking perky boobs and a very small tummy now, Im really really pleased with how everything turned out. My breasts are smaller than Im used to but they look great. And did I say PERKY! Im glad to be back home although the hospital was great, I had good nurses and great food. They give you a menu and you order whatever you want whenever you want, and it all tastes good. I have been up and walking everyday and getting stronger all the time.

I apreciate all of the pink feathers and well wishes, it really helps the recovery.

Lots of hugs to all of you!
Bernadette
