Dusting off the cobwebs

That creaking noise? It’s the sound of me walking up the stairs to this rickety old blog.

I just  have one small update to share: I have a broken boob.

Looking back, it’s hard to believe that it was almost a year ago that I started consultations for the brachioplasty/mastopexy/augmentation. But it has been that long, and I had surgery a full six months ago. Unbelievable!

One boob is great. The other feels like it’s made of cement and aches all the time. Naked, I look ridiculously lop-sided and weird. Thankfully it’s disguised in clothing.

So I saw my surgeon yesterday and after some pharmaceutical attempts didn’t work, I’m going back in for surgery so that he can fix my capsular contracture. While I’m under, he’s going to revise my left arm as well.

I can’t believe I’m having to do this again, but whatever. Last time was horrible. I’m hoping this is a quick little fixer-upper.

December 10th. The very moment I finish teaching my last class of the semester.

And now I’m backing down these rickety old stairs again. See ya when I see ya!

  1. Whoa… I’m laughing and cringing at the same time. Oh girl – how I miss you… your posts just make me laugh. I’m sorry you’re having to go through this… but ummm… my whole life is looking at my horribly lopsided boobs – so I know what that is like. Hang in there – and I hope that it is a quick healing time this go around!

  2. Glad to see you checking in…
    Sad to hear you have a concrete boob…
    Glad that a semester will soon be drawing to end end and you can take a deep breath…
    Sad that due to surgery, that deep breath might hurt…
    Glad in general that things seem to be moving forward to your world…

    I can’t complain about your lack of blog…for I am a blog slacker myself 🙂 Have missed you still…Had a cup of Blueberry coffee this week and I thought of you…enjoy the sunshine down in your neck of the woods and despite the hypocrisy of this statement…check in more often will ya?

    Lol…Jil

  3. I have been a very bad blogger and blog checker myself of late. Today as I am battling what must be the flu, I am trying to catch up a bit.
    A broken boob? Yikes! Not a good thing to have busted, girlfriend! Not like a nail, that’s for sure! So sorry this is happening and you have to go through all that again.
    Sure have missed you. Don’t be a stranger, ok?

  4. Meg…Are you still alive?

  5. I miss you. Will you maybe come back one day? Please?
