    I went today to a Latin Festival and had a great time! Most importantly was feeling so good about myself, it's been a long time since I felt this way, so you all know that there is always hope!

    Now I'm on my fifth week of recovery from reconstruction. My first mastectomy was on my left breast and the day of the reconstruction the surgeon did a mastectomy on the right one. The plan was to reconstruct both at the same time, well after more than 12 hours in surgery it happened that the right side of my belly was too scared from hysterectomy( 2 of them) that it couldn't be used, so i ended up with a left form of a breast and nothing on the right side. The reason I wanted to do this kind of reconstruction was not to have to use implants and now that's what I have to do or use a prosthesis which is very uncomfortable, but I believe things happen for a reason, I just have to find it.

    This is my daughter's tattoo, she knows I don't like them much, but when she showed to me all I could do was cry and be overwhelmed with emotion...
