Two things to report--well three, but two about me. And its all about ME, right? : )
Had my boob fill today and oh boy, I could tell. I had 120 CC's injected and could feel it the whole time, which isn't painful, just strange. Visually, I could also tell the difference and throughout the day, it is more painful, but not anything I can't tolerate. So, I have a total of 300 CC's in. Ginger asked a grumpy Dr. Messinger when I would be totally filled and he pointed at my good boob and said "See that? Then we are done." (We laughed at how grumpy he was when we left) But Tara, my nurse, was in a good mood and said that all reconstruction patients get a free facial at the Skin Care Spa so next week I get myself a facial. Fun, fun. I know WHY they do that--to get us to do it more often--but either way, I will enjoy it. (oh, by the way, Betty, there was NO sign to "go to Suite 200" in the men's room--Ginger checked. There had been one we think, as adhesive was still there. We figure the men were so confused by what it meant they just ripped it down)
Secondly, and I am sort of sheepish about this, Ginger and I had a long talk about my worries and have decided to call Dr. Wolf, my WONDERFUL head and neck doctor from U of M who did my neck tumor in 2001, to see if he will see me about my fears about my ear and pains in my throat/neck. I just want a thorough exam. I actually emailed him this afternoon--I 'm embarrassed that he will think I am a pyschochondriac (psycho hypochondriac) but Ginger convinced me that this is NOT worth worrying about when there are people who can help. I thought about going to a local ENT but if there is something wrong, I am going back to U of M anyway. I will let you know what his email says--he is the freakin' Chief of Staff at U of M but always responds via email so how can I not like the guy? He will probably email me back and say "This message was undeliverable." : ) I tried to keep it short but you know me.
Lastly, and this is great news, Ava's chest was closed today--which means the doctors, at this point, feel they don't need to go back in for anything else. That is just HUGE. Now the concern is infection, but I truly believe this is the best day for all of them--both Jamies are feeling better about things. Keep praying tho'--this is a long road and positive thoughts are always needed. But bless her little heart--Heather says Jamie said she is looking more and more like a little baby.
On another good note, Andrew was chosen to go to a leadership clinic for MHSAA (Michigan High School Athletic Association) student athletes. He and six other Niles juniors and sophomores are attending in late October. He is such a good kid. I am very proud. (Aunt Mimi, Bryanna was chosen as well! YOU Should be proud of your niece and nephew!) All of the students going are the some of the best in their class and will represent Niles well. Now, if Andrew would just get his calculus grade up! : )
Ta Ta for Now. I am going to go see if Dr. Wolf emailed me back. I am scared. : (
