I’m so impressed that your plastic surgeon consult is your ultimate reward… I’m still not sure if I’ll have the nerve to go through with that – it looks really painful.

    Not to mention I’m still struggling with other things – basically I’m in such a hurry to have children that I might do that first before having plastic surgery – at least that way – everything will stretch and be done before I get it all tucked. 🙂 We’ll just have to see what happens when this journey is over.
