Met the new general surgeon today

When I met with the plastic surgeon last month he mentioned that if one of the general surgeons at the Naval Hospital was willing to do the surgery, I would be able to have the procedure done closer to home.  I was very fortunate that one of my friends husband actually had worked as a surgery tech at the Naval Hospital and he was able to recommend a general surgeon.  It was such a huge relief to have him give me a  name of someone he had seen work first hand.

I met with the new general surgeon today.  I was very impressed with him and I feel like I have a great team for this surgery.  He told me that he is not sure if they will be able to spare my nipple which was something I was really hoping for.  I really just want my breasts to look as normal as possible when everything is said and done.  Hopefully everything will work out, I have to just put it all in God's hands.

Thank you to everyone who is thinking about me and praying for me through this journey.
