~Update & Final Breast Cancer Operation Photos~

Well, I am finally starting to get over my pneumonia and I cracked yet another tooth (possibly two more) and have to go to the dentist tomorrow to get them pulled. (Thank you once again chemotherapy for ruining my teeth....LOL) This isn't really an EXTREME MAKE OVER I had ever envisioned, new hair, new teeth, new boobs and a new figure!!! But I BEAT CANCER and I am a better person because of it!!!
I have updated my BREAST CANCER PHOTO JOURNAL (just click on the highlighted link) with the LAST PHOTOS of my breast cancer surgery. In these REAL PHOTOS (so please look at them at your own discretion) you will see where they took out my expander's and replaced them with saline solution implants. They also made nipples out of my skin and skin graphs and I must admit, they look pretty darn real.
I have ONE FINAL step and that is to tattoo the coloring of the areolas around the nipple and that will be 2 weeks AFTER my 42nd Birthday on February 20th, 2008. It's an hour and a half to 2 hour procedure that is done right in my plastic surgeons office. I can honestly say I am looking forward to spring and summer so I can have all of this behind me.
I am also excited to be WORKING ON THE WEBSITE with VINTAGE VALENTINE'S DAY TREASURES, OLD JEWELRY and I am selling some of my VINTAGE SCOTTY DOG COLLECTION TOO!!!. I think Scotties and Valentine's are so darn CUTE together. I am looking at being ready NEW YEARS DAY so cross your fingers and pray that I feel well enough to do so and that I have no ill feelings from the tooth removal tomorrow.
All my Love to all of you!!!

Amy you deserve great looking TaTa's after everything you've been through. Don't forget to go out and buy all the low cut tops that you couldn't wear before.
You are looking great, and I have a feeling 2008 is going to be a wonderful year in your life. I am so proud of you for everything that you've shared with us, because none of us know when it could be us or a friend or relative. Thank you for allowing us to gain knowledge from your experience. I wish you and your family and healthy and prosperous New Year.
