Big Announcement!!!

Sorry for the blurry picture:


I'm scheduled for plastic surgery!  I go this Thursday to have my pre-op appointment.  I am so happy to see this go from a dream to a reality. 

I know you all may be freaking out with how close I am doing it to the move, but there really isn't ever going to be a "good" time to do it.  I need to bite the bullet and get it done.  I am making a big to-do list (per HH's request) of things he is to do while I am recovering.  He says my only job is to get better, and he will handle everything else.  I will be coming back in July for a follow-up to my surgeries.  My surgeon said he can actually answer most of my questions with a picture and an email.  He says most of my concerns are going to be common things that are effects of the surgery that he can quickly assure me will pass based on looking at the picture.

On June 8th I will have a complete body lift.  I will have an anchor cut and a line that goes around my entire body.  On June 15th, I will have a thigh lift and Brachioplasty.  I am so pleased with the surgeon I have picked.  I have absolute confidence in his abilities.  He has said several times I won't have perfection, but I think he is mistaking me for perhaps some of his typical clients.  I just want mass off my body.  If he can take away two-thirds of the lose skin that I have, I'll be happy.

Good luck - this June 4th is my 3 year anniversary for my tummy tuck! Do your research - but you won't regret it! Be sure to take before pics - that's the one thing I wish I had more of.

That is fabulous news! And I am so glad that you have such a supportive, helpful husband. That will make all the difference. :D

Yay, you! I can't wait to hear all about it and see pics, if you are comfortable with sharing them.

WOW!!! I'm really excited for you. I know how long you've been planning/waiting for this. Will you be out of school by June 8? I'm with Drazil, take LOTS of pictures. I'll be sending lots of prayers for a safe surgery and a speedy recovery your way.
