Ok, so it’s a short term plan, but it’s a plan none-the-less and will get me through the next week or so.
Today, I met with the plastic surgeon who will be doing the reconstructive portion of my surgery. He was very patient with me even after I interrupted him a couple of times. (I really hate it when I do that.) He explained my options which included the option of deciding which option to pick until after the radiation treatments. After briefly speaking with both surgeons this morning, I now feel confident in the direction I am going in this process.
My new surgery date is Tuesday, March 4th. I like this date for several reasons. One reason is that I have some time to mentally prepare for what I am about to face. Another is that this is my birthday week and I don’t want to remember this birthday as being just about major surgery.
Today was a good day.
