Plastic Surgery Consult: Take Two

I had a plastic surgery consult in October 2009.  HH and I thought that funds were going to be available shortly to pay for this completely, but that ended up not being the case. 

Today, we went back to consult on my thighs, arms, and abdomen.  I'm going to have two surgery dates.  The first will be for my abdomen, then I can have the second one for my thighs and arms any time after one week from the first surgery.  I am most likely two weeks (or less) from scheduling actual DATES for my plastics!  (You have to put 20% down to schedule your surgery.)  I would have loved to have everything done in one swoop, but it is simply too much.  He is concerned with blood loss if we were to try that route too.

How is this going to work with the move?  That's a great question.  We are still figuring that out. 

Option One:  I make a master list for HH to do (at his insistence), so I can lay around and recover. 

Option Two:  I get things settled in South Dakota (where I want stuff in the house and my classroom), then fly back for the surgeries.  I would spend a few weeks with my parents.

It really looks like this is a GO!  I feel so comfortable with the doctor, and he has an excellent reputation.

P.S.  I got my official contract for being a teacher in South Dakota!

I think you should go with Option 2. It'll be nice for you to recuperate at your parents' with your mommy there to take care of you. And, I'm being totally serious! Not that Ben wouldn't have the desire to wait on you hand & foot, but it's not the same as your mom doing it. How long is the suggested recovery time? Is your summer break going to be long enough?

Congratulations on signing your new contract. That's awesome!

This is definitely good news. I would love to have plastic surgery on my thigh area. Well, I can't wait to see the coming changes. Good luck on all the procedures!

Before undergoing plastic surgery, one should be in excellent physical condition and have realistic goals and expectations. Well, I think you have all those three. Change can be good, indeed! Good luck and congratulations to you! :)
