I forgot to mention that my blood work came back normal. Yay! I didn't need to schedule an ultrasound or CT scan, whatever, to find out if something's wrong all because some #was slightly below or above normal.
My WBC count is still on the low end of normal, but no biggie.
Unfortunately I didn't get to enjoy my perfect boobs for long
Just when the weather is getting warmer and I no longer had to hide the hideousness of my right breast, I was finally able to enjoy wearing tops that have a scoop neck or V-neck. Welllll, not anymore! I noticed and felt something hard under my skin, going diagonally on the right boob up to almost the lower part of my neck. I took a picture of it and sent it to the doctor to see if she thought I needed to come in. Of course the answer was yes. It's a muscle. Some how the expander moved ever so slightly and allowed this particular muscle to look like its straining to escape my body. The expanders are put in under the muscles, just like implants are. But why this particular one suddenly looks like it's trying to escape my body, is a mystery. Other than the expander moving a tad and shifting how the muscles lay, the other possibility is that through my weight lifting I strained the muscle and caused the shift. I only lift 8 pounds. Just enough to keep sagginess at bay, but not enough to bulk out my arms.
On another subject-- my complaint to the hospital regarding how I was treated when I was paralyzed, I finally got a call from the litigation specialist today. The call happened to come when we were driving home from our impromtu trip to the PS today, and my cell phone only had 4% battery life. So she agreed to call me tomorrow morning. I am normally such a positive thinker, but for some reason I am thinking the worse. That she, or the legal department that reviewed my file, decides "this was really not too bad, the lady is just exaggerating." But i'm not. Every word in my complaint is true, and all 5 of the people i have now let read about
what happened, are horrified and can't believe they could behave so badly to me. So, I shall pray to God that the folks at the hospital have the ability to empathize and truly understand what I went through, and continue to go through, as I have PTSD.
Wish me luck tomorrow. I do feel a bit intimidated i speaking with her. But I have the truth on my side and a couple things they did to me were BAD, by anyone's standards.
Best of health and positive thought to all.
