Funny. I never thought I'd be one to have fake boobies....but come October I will be and the process is going to take a LOT longer than I had originally anticipated. *sigh* That's a bummer. I had thought that it would be "simple", ya know, remove the old, replace it with the new, give me a couple of weeks to heal then back to normal life! WRONG! Yes they will remove the old but the "new" will be tissue-expanders that I will have to have pumped up every week or so for six weeks in order to stretch out the skin to make room for the long-term implant. This just sounds *lovely*! THEN I get to have the surgery where they replace the expanders with the long term implant and I'll have to heal from that. All told SIX WEEKS of healing. Sheesh. Six weeks away from school? Anyone understand FMLA cause I'm thinking this is something I'll need to look into. This is all so damn inconvenient, frustrating,and anxiety-inducing. The myriad of questions that arise in my brain threaten to overtake me. I think I need to take a nap.
