WARNING...you've been warned!



Inspiration Monday photo and day before reduction procedure....can you tell I am happy?
 
This gorgeous bouquet of flowers from my close and dear friend Bonnie who spent 2 days in bed with me while I recovered and then drove me to Philadelphia for my post op appointment on Tuesday.  She totally saw my new boobs along with my close and dear friend Jenni who dropped by to visit me and brought me a gorgeous necklace that matches my new dress perfectly.   Thank you my girls.  Feel better my Kathy who had her own procedure recently. 
This cat Blackers has not left my side, he is a love....cats whether you love them or not, are truly gentle comforting creatures.
Enjoying my new pretty headboard, my sleep number bed  has come in so handy as I can sit up and adjust it just like you would a hospital bed....total lifesaver....
A bedside vignette that I set up while totally high on pain meds...creativity never leaves you...not even when you are high as a kite.
Sweet cards received from my Pastor Bettie and  dear friend Marcelle...thank you from my heart...

Flotation device(s). Raft not included. I received this funny comment from one of my followers and close friends, Shayla, at Fortyishandfluffy. "You do such a good job at hiding your bodacious tatas that I don't think people realize what you have going on there. Free them pups - let's get a good "before" pic! LOL" How funny is she? Well, here they are at a "g" cup. Don't judge me for this, I could have included my head shot AND YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. I AM HAPPILY A SMALL "C". NOT AN EASY RECOVERY BUT WORTH EVERY BIT OF PAIN AND RELIEF EXCEPT FOR THE PART WHEN THEY TOLD ME I WAS SCREAMING  "MY F%$#&!G TITS ARE KILLING ME" ON THE WAY OUT OF THE OPERATING ROOM.  Amnesia is a wonderful thing.  
love and admiration to all.  stay inspired.  Can't wait to show you the results...a special and very gracious thank you to my husband who went beyond the call of duty and took care of me with the sweetest gentle care ever.  I am blessed.

Oh my gosh, I love that you were yelling that as you came out of the OR! Hilarious! Not hilarious that your t!t$ hurt, of course, but that you yelled it. And your bedside vignette is too cute. I love it. So happy that it sounds like you are recovering well. You have so many amazing people taking care of you! We miss your pretty face around here, so get well soon! xoxo.

Dawn, I am so glad you are ok girl! I know you're still in pain, but you'll appreciate it. Hang in there. Those flowers and cards are beautiful girl. You have a wonderful support system. I've seen those sleep number beds. They are AWESOME! It came at a great time. Get some rest. Follow the doctors orders and you'll be back on your feet in no time. Love you girl!
