Ho hum…still recovering

Okay. Update on my healing: My doc may pride himself on closing up the incisions with entirely internal sutures, but my body needed to have a word with him. After two and a half weeks of watching my new breasts open at the seams, my doctor decided to clean up the wounds and restitch me at the seams. Only on the right side. Six stitches on the inside that will eventually dissolve, and nine standard  sutures on the outside. Believe it or not, at one point during the stitching, I actually requested a hand held mirror to watch my doctor at work. He quickly told me that he’d never had that particular request before. In reality, there were no mirrors in the room. You can bet I rushed home to see the new stitches under all the bandages, though! I will be healed up enough to begin practicing massage therapy on June 1, 2007. Enough said!

Thanks to all my readers who’ve been holding good thoughts for me.  After June 1,  you cqan schedule your one-hour relaxation massage with me!
 Don’t know how old this one is, but thought it still relevant.

    I was wondering how you were progressing! I reeally hope the June 1 date is real. It seems so close to having the external stitches. Best to you.

    Do we got a bloggy discount?

    What’s your rate sheet look like? Have you set up a website? Flyer? Business card?

    Girl, watch out! I am close enough to take you up on that offer!

    I’m glad that you are finally recovering. I can honestly say that I have never, ever asked to watch anyone stitch me up! Ew. You are such a badass, Erin!!

    Hang in there, girlfriend! *smooches*
