Well, two months after they first saw something suspicious on my mammogram, it was time to get rid of it – finally! So, we had an early morning start and off to Faulkner Hospital we went for my lumpectomy surgery on good ole lefty.

As planned the day and the surgery went well. After the wire localization procedure I put on some lovely surgery-wear, they gave me some good relaxing drugs and off I went to the OR. I don’t remember much after that, but tonight while watching Seinfeld I remembered asking the OR nurses about the observation room I could see above the OR. They said they no longer use that and I said “good, because I don’t want a Junior Mint in my boob!”. They must of then given me more drugs knocking me out because that is the last thing I remember.

I woke up in the recovery room. A little ginger ale, a corn muffin, a few comments about Greg looking like Brett Favre and we were ready to go home!

So, Step One was done! Next stop was home with my wonderful husband, our comfy couch and my ducky blanket for some much needed R&R!
