Giddy with Christmas news

The plastic surgeon was in today taking a look at things. While there hasn't been any improvement in the right breast, it hasn't died off yet. He sat and poked and prodded it for what seemed like forever. He said he probably wanted to wait a week or so before giving up on this tissue. SSOOOOOO...they may send me home Thursday morning and have me back the following week at his office. The tissue will either be getting better or dying. If it is dying, then we'll schedule the surgery for that week and only stay a day or so getting an expander it, and then return in 3-4 months to attempt reconstruction again. He's just not ready to give up on that tissue since it hasn't necrotized yet :) That's GOOD NEWS! If I could jump, I would. Instead I will enjoy a walk over to the bathroom. *laugh* Did I say enjoy?
