      Good to hear that it is better than you thought. My hope is that it stays that way and you continue to heal without problems. Hope you can lay back and relax, get some sunshine and fresh air and take some relaxing walks soon.

      Congrats on getting through the BL mastectomy. It wasn't easy for me. I cried when I first saw myself in the mirror and it is only natural because we as women feel like we lost part of our womanhood. At least I did. You sound upbeat and happy and I an happy for you that you made it home and can now start your recovery with your loved ones around you.

      Congrats on your return home, littlelady! As Nonnie says, you might cry when you first see what you look like now (I know I did!), but remember, BREASTS ARE HIGHLY OVERRATED! Maybe you will find in a couple of weeks that you don't miss them as much as you thought you might--? I know I have been thrilled to be able to wear tank tops; something that was impossible before my surgery.

      Besides, you will probably feel a great sense of relief, knowing that you did what was necessary to get rid of that awful cancer. You've come a long way, lady--you deserve (and get) my respect for doing something very difficult but necessary. BRAVO! Hope your recovery goes well too!

      Hope you are feeling ok and more comfortable at home. It's a lot to go through...an understatement! Thinking of you. I felt a lot of relief after the surgery...that same night even. It was done, hating the idea of it and all the anxiety and anticipation of it was over and I felt better I could move forward. I'm happy we are here for each other to share similarities and differences for having to go through this. Stay strong as best you can.
