I’m home! Surgery went quicker than anticipated and I am recovering very well. Thank you so much to everyone who has been praying for me today. I’m doing very well and I’m very grateful to have been home and settled for the last few of hours. I am in more pain than I was coming home from the mastectomy but I have only taken two Tylenol at this point. I am hoping to avoid narcotics altogether this time.
One of the toughest decisions I made along the way was to have a small implant placed in my left breast during this procedure in order to achieve symmetry and maintain some level of balance across my chest. Because of this, it will make my healing and recovery more challenging as I will have limited usage of both arms this time around. I am quickly realizing that it will require me to be more dependent on other’s help but that is probably a good thing at the end of the day.
I will try to post another update in a few days but for now I wanted to say thank you again to those of you who have been praying and who have reached out to me today. Your prayers truly make a difference and your messages and gifts have continued to fuel and motivate me throughout this step in the journey. I’ll be in touch soon friends. Bless you all!
