It has been a while since I’ve kept you all updated on the events of this journey.
6 weeks ago today, I had my breast reconstruction surgery!
WOW what a road. WHAT. A. JOURNEY!!
Honestly, I’m so proud of myself.
2020 has been an absolute disaster of a year for the majority of us, but holy cow…what GROWTH was made. What tremendous strides were made. We can’t discount how the hard stuff shapes us, and makes us better. Stronger.
I think every year is an opportunity for “growth”. This year, certainly I can say that it was. Next year will be as well. I made some decisions that I’m so very proud of. (More to come on that as well)
Looking back, I am proud of my strength and courage, to show up for my health and for my family’s future.
I’m a damn fighter! Also, I am so damn LUCKY to have had this opportunity through genetic testing, science, and prophylactic medicine to be able to get ahead of any potential threat to my body before it gets to me.
There were challenges, roadblocks, and tears but look who’s officially on the other side (and with new, awesome boobs)!!
Don’t underestimate yourself. You’re capable of much more than you think.
