I don't know why...

I am not attempting to offend anyone, but I honestly do not know why anyone would "elect" to do this...more power to them. God knew what he was doing :-) I would do anything to have my ol' boobs back. So far, these look like a "train-wreck"! I really cannot complain...I still have not had any pain, and I guess they are hidden so I do not have to look at them often. But, they are a sight. I have a simple scar under my arm on the left breast. The right breast is definitely not as simple. I have a scar the shape of an anchor that goes straight down from the nipple and is under the breast. The surgeon also moved the nipple up so I am anxious to see how that will heal around the nipple. I will continue to pray that I can ward off infection and have complete healing.

Dan just stopped at the computer to read my post and said, "You are fine! I don't understand why you are so concerned! They look fine!" "ESPECIALLY the swelling!" Of course, he would like the swelling! This may be the only time I will fill out that special DD bra he bought me for Christmas!


  1. Mary,
    Give yourself time to heal with all the prayers you continue to receive. We will not forget to keep the prayers rolling in for you. Always move forward because yesterday is gone. We love you so much and "wonder why" you. My friend, Lissa, is just beginning her journey. Started chemo last week. You have come so far and my prayer for you today is that you will heal and continue looking forward "no matter what!" We love you!! p.s. You are one of God's favorites!! aunt jo

  2. Just wanted to let you know that I continue to keep you in my prayers. So glad that you aren't in pain, but know that this is another difficult step in your journey. Hang in there!
