Trying to amp myself up for this week already. I have an appointment every single day this week, and sometimes more than one. It’s gonna be rough, but I am SUPER excited to get out of the house! I did manage to get the Christmas decorations down yesterday, but the tree is still in the house. 1.) I can’t carry it even with Eric’s help and 2.) it’s still alive and doing well. I feel guilt that I had a living thing cut down for my aesthetic pleasure and then, while still alive just toss it out on the side of the road. Plant murder. Hah. Hippie maybe? Maybe a little bit, but I would go more with guilt complex/environmentally aware. It’s probably doing everyone in my house a favor by filtering the air. If I had my way, I would keep it until it’s no longer kicking, but I have a feeling Eric is going to make me get rid if it soon. Maybe next year I should go with something like this:
Then maybe I won’t feel as bad? Who knows, anyways enough of my rambling.
My mom is on get way here right now. She was in Pittsburgh visiting my sister and seeing a play. My sister got her tickets for Christmas. So now she is driving the whole way across the state to come help me out. I am still not allowed to drive. So she will be driving Miss Traci everywhere. Nice? Understatement.
Tomorrow we get to trek into Philly to meet with Dr. Greaney and I get expanded. Because I am not yet filled back into my skin (sounds weird I know) I have a feeling we are going to have to go pretty aggressively this week. Fun. But, I all seriousness, it doesn’t hurt, it just feels tight (like a tiger) lol, no really…like I am wearing an inner tube meant for a 3 yr. old. Trust me, I have felt worse. But, I now have sensation back to the top side of my breasts where the ports are, so I’m sure it will be a little bit uncomfortable when he puts those needles in. Nothing worse than an IV I am sure. Tuesday I have pre-admission testing for my exchange on the 6th. Thankfully, they are letting me do it here with my primary care physician, so it’s only 5 minutes away and the likelihood of traffic is basically 0 because I live in BFE. (middle of nowhere). Wednesday I get to go back to PT. I can’t complain because I got a week break, but I’ve been working hard here everyday. Thursday is the busiest. Meeting a friend, Pinder, for breakfast, have my GYN appointment, again so excited I can’t strand it, but I don’t have to have a breast exam so that awkward 5 minutes when someone is feeling you up and you have to make conversation will no longer exist. I am excited to show my doctor what has been done because she is the one who referred me to these doctors in Philly. Even though it’s a bit of a hassle to drive down there I am so grateful that she did. Then I get my hair cut! I can’t wait. I know I have good range of motion but I feel like my hair hasn’t been really washed since my mom washed it in the sink. Gross right? I am really excited to get my hair scrubbed. Then Friday its back to Philly for another expansion session. Whew! I am tired just typing that. So pray, keep your fingers crossed, wish me luck, whatever it is you do this week for me!
