Tomorrow is a big day.

Surgically speaking, compared to the mastectomy, this will be a walk in the park.  It is an outpatient procedure and Linda will be home tomorrow evening.  Recovery is measured in days, as opposed to weeks.

Psychologically speaking, tomorrow is a pretty big milestone and a very important part of Linda's healing, and mine too.  Of course she knows I'd love her if she had no boobs or 3 boobs, but having the twins back (even if they are adopted) is a big deal.

Wish us luck!

(I hope this goes without saying, but I'm going to say it anyways.  Linda and I tackle most things in life with a smile and a sense of humor.  It helps accentuate the highs and take the edge off the lows.  I can't imagine doing it any other way.  Please don't interpret my sometimes off-color posts as anything less than complete respect for those women and families that have walked in our shoes)

John I wouldn't ever think you are being disrespectful in any way, you HAVE to keep a sense of humour in all of this. Both you and Linda are just like my sister Brenda and her hubby in that regard, and I think it rocks.

Keep us posted on the surgery? Good luck Linda!
