~Crazy Couple Days~


Well, my Microsoft Frontpage decided to die on me yesterday. That is the program I use for my website and host my e-bay auctions. The good news is, I got it working after 5 and a half hours of working on it today and I don't have to get a new computer or program. WHEW!!! I am soooo happy about that.

I will be getting ready for the Thanksgiving Holiday starting tomorrow and Wednesday, by cleaning the house (Mom's coming over to help) and I still need to shop for dinner. We have the turkey but need to get everything else.


I had my pre-op physical today and will find out about my blood work tomorrow. It took them 20 minutes to find a good vein because all of mine are collapsed from chemotherapy. They blew out one of my veins today, it hurts like hell, and finally found one to get some blood. I sure am glad that is over with!!! Just think 2 WEEKS from TONIGHT I will be all done with my 2nd phase of reconstructive breast surgery. They will be taking out the expander's and replacing them with saline implants and then building nipples. I have to wear nipple tents (THAT MAKES ME LAUGH EVERY TIME I SAY IT) for 3 weeks as not to tear or catch them on my clothing. The last phase of the reconstruction won't happen until LATE SPRING 2008. So, they weren't kidding when they said the whole process takes about a year.


The girls decorated the whole house for CHRISTMAS since I want to have that all done and all the presents bought before surgery. Then I can just relax until Christmas!!! I will get a picture of the tree, I just forgot to and will share that after Thanksgiving.


I feel better and stronger everyday and below are just a few photos of what will be coming to the website the weekend of Thanksgiving. YIPPY SKIPPY!!! GAME ON, as the girls would say. If you are interested in having me e-mail you as soon as everything is ready, please e-mail me so I can add you to our list.

I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL THANKSGIVING and I am so THANKFUL for all of you, my family, friends and all of Our Troops!!! I will back to blogging after Thanksgiving.

Hugs, Amy
