Day 16: Things are looking quite bright!

This morning I finally got my drains out, and also they removed the stitches from my waistline incision. My chest is healing great, and I was allowed to switch from the binder to a sports bra! How normal :) I am still bound at the waistline for a while more, but that is ok. Removal of drains requires 3 days back on the couch, but I'm ok with that. Tomorrow, I can shower! Considering I haven't since December 11th, this is very exciting to say the least! (I've mastered the sink bath though, no smelly Jenn here!). My incisions overall are better than I'd hoped and are healing as expected.

I don't really have anything riveting to update except that every day is better and better, I feel good but still tire quickly and easily, and I'm still super happy with my results. Today Jill snapped photos from behind at the doctor's office and seeing the whole picture of me'backside was awesome - what an amazing difference!!! I have some photos - they certainly aren't offensive, but I hesitate to post. Just comment with your email address and I will send them if you're interested!

Hi Jenn, I am happy to hear you are doing so well. I bet getting those drains out now is way more comfortable. If you are fine with sending the pictures go ahead.
This whole process is a big under taking for anyone. I am sure I would not handle it as well as you have been. Go girl!!

Jenn-

The boobs rock! I had my LBL and BL/BA on the 12th! My implants are still so high it looks like I swallowed them to get them there. Alas, I had no tissue left to work with so I had the implants. Girl, you are looking good and doing so well. I can't believe you are doing laundry. I am trying to lift nothing!

Send me pics if you get a chance. I may set up picture trail later. I am still nervouse about it.
