IT CANNOT SHATTER HOPE
IT CANNOT CORRODE FAITH
IT CANNOT DESTROY PEACE
IT CANNOT KILL FRIENDSHIP
IT CANNOT SUPPRESS MEMORIES
IT CANNOT SILENCE COURAGE
IT CANNOT INVADE THE SOUL
IT CANNOT STEAL ETERNAL LIFE
IT CANNOT CONQUER THE SPIRIT
All of the above are true.
Guess what? I've got EYELASHES! They've come back. I am going to have to take a close-up picture of them to document this momentous event. True, they fall between stubletts and normal size in length, but at least they are comin' along just fine. :)
This day went by quickly. Went to town with Nina to buy gifts for nephew Matt's fiancé, Kristin's, bridal shower.
Then attempted to straighten the house as best I could, since my doctor said "NO MOVING YOUR ARMS FOR A FEW WEEKS!" How in the Sam Hill is that gonna work? Alec came to my house about 1:30 and kept himself busy. Talked to sister Sandy and then Sandy R. from Georgia and later, Little Ma. Then quickly mowed our yard (or what is left to mow that isn't all covered with tree limbs) and did the shop land. Fixed some steaks and we ate supper about 10:00!! I'm not supposed to eat or drink after midnight, but I cut it kinda close. Now ii is time to get ready for tomorrow.
I am not a bit nervous about it. Like I have said before, I will be unconscious so I don't know, nor do I want to know, what exactly is happening. I think they said I will have to spend a night in the hospital, but hopefully not. This is not supposed to hurt as bad as the first surgery, since the cut that they made taking out the tumor and removing the breasts, has healed. Also, before, they had to cut the chest muscles to put the expanders in, and that was really a doozy feeling, but that is not necessary this time. So all will go fine. No problem.
Thanks for all the good thoughts, all my wonderful peeps. We're heading down the home stretch.
I'll get back to you with the results of how easy this new procedure goes. :) Going to bed now.
EXTRA NOTE: Congratulations, Amanda and Jimmy, on your marriage!
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
