My 3rd blog

Well I finally received a date for my surgery. It will be on June 16th. In a way I am a little excited to finally have a date , but again now it is going to make me very anxious.
My place of employment-Mosaic Cafe-held a benefit for me last Monday night and so many wonderful people were there to help support my husband, family and myself. The money that was raised will help so much with the many hospital bills that are already piling up.
I qualified for the bilateral TRAM so this means that I will not have to have implants put in since they will be using my own skin and muscles. The surgery will be anywhere between 6 to 8 hours and require 3 surgeons. I will be staying in the hospital 5 to 7 days and then another 4 to 5 weeks at home for recovery.
Bought quite a few albums and will be filling them up with family photos from everyone to keep me busy.
One of the hardest things about all of this will be not being able to pick up my 2 year old granddaughter for quite sometime.
Will write again soon
