Goodbye mugraine!

Feeling MUCH better from yesterday, now that the migraine is gone. I'm just really tired since I couldn't sleep yesterday from the pain.

Now I'm just trying to get the pain down a bit more, glad to be done with the psycho migraine waking dreams, and hope my family comes to visit me.

I did get to go see my friend, who had her surgeries 'between' mine. She seems to be doing well at least. That's good news.

Do you know how disappointed I am to have one dead breast that I know will have to be removed this week? It sucks.

Can you have it stuffed and mounted? Wouldn't that be quite the conversation piece to have hanging over the fireplalce mantle? !!!

You're Freakier Than Me, Thank God
I am so glad to see this! My first thought was this sounds like the part in Geek Love where one of the conjoined twins is in a vegetative state, and the other twin won't have her euthanized. At least here it isn't a choice.

Trish, I'm so sorry you're having a rougher time than anticipated, especially at the holidays. For some people the holidays aren't a big deal, but I'm assuming they don't have kids. I really hope you get home soon, without dead tissue, and with the right drug combo to keep you out of pain but still able to laugh at the twins enjoying their loot. Maybe looking at the tree with all the pretty trails and distortions will add a new dimension to christmas and lessen the bummer that this is happening now. Will you have your new bod for Christmas?? That might be a great present......

It'd be pretty cool in a jar, too.

One of the ladies that worked for the school when I was at Mary Baldwin had had a breast reduction and donated the removed tissue to the biology department. I went over to the office they were in just to tell people I'd seen her breasts up close. (As a bonus, I also got to see various reproductive organs from unknown previous owners.)

Great idea!! Can't you just see M & M taking it to first grade show & tell?

The political correctness police would have a toad at the sight of mommy's floating breast in a jar!

That would be the Best Show & Tell Ever.

My sister and wanted to take our baby sister's placenta in after she was born but the school district said no. Most of our classmates came over to our house and saw it instead. After it thawed in the spring, we planted it in the garden under a new fruit tree. (It's a family tradition for homebirths; mine and my first little brother's went in my grandparents' orchard.)

The political correctness police up in Frisco ISD already had a toad this year over the Sydney McGee art museum flap, so one breast is really no big deal.

My boys are in the Frisco ISD, and I went to college originally for Art History, so I followed that insane story closely. Just plain dumb.

I thought they were taking both breasts? Do I need to go back and read my history again?

I'm just so glad you came through the surgery ok. I know it must all be really weird - I really cannot fathom the range of emotions for you right now.

Will you really be in the hospital through Christmas? I'm just so stunned about it all.

they took both breasts and tried to reconstruct them from belly tissue (thus the tummy) One took, one didn't.

You should ask the doctor what other "buy 2 get 1 free" deals they offer.

When are you looking at returning home? We haven't bought perishable ingredients yet, so we can easily push back the date we bring you meals.

Not to worry. I just sent the guys a big fruit basket, so they won't die from scurvy in the mean-time.

Give me a shout so we can gang up and conspire to feed them just like last time. (I'm at hotmail.com)

I get back on the 29th, but Vogon would be happy to cook and deliver food in my absence. Just let us know when you'll be returning home and one or both us can be up with food the next day.

Ok, I am hoping for that 24th at the latest, but I'll call you when they do finally release me.

Yeah. Not a breast, but a body part equally as "important" to self-image. It sucks big time. Until you see you see your boys and remember why you're going through this. Then it'll suck a little less.

Hang in hon.

No, he's a good doctor. He did a flap for my psychiatrist, and in between my surgeries, he did one for a fellow mother of multiples from my group. He doesn't have a bedside manner for anything, but he's a good surgeon.

The boys came up today with Scott, all three of them wearing their Saints hats. Too bad Washington beat them :( Scott is trying to instill some sense of 'New Orleans' in them, as least. We've been reading the 'Cajun Night Before Christmas', and he brought me a CD of Cajun Christmas songs. The boys even have Saints christmas caps. It was great to have them here giving me kisses on my hands and playing around. It lifted me for a while :)

Wow Trish, still praying for you and hoping you'll be home by the 24th! Wish I was closer so I could help you then. Sounds like you've got some great friends nearby who'll be there for you.
