Dec. 21, 2016. Week 8 Day 51

Christmas is getting close and so excited.  This was the time last year when I had my blood test for the PALB2 gene.  I did not get the results until Jan. 3, 2016.  So during Christmas I was thinking about the results and what it would mean to me and my family.  Little did I know that I would find 2 of the best Doctors and have the results that I have.  I am so pleased with my surgery and the results.  And according to Dr. Habash the Stage 2 results will be even better.

On the subject that seems to be taking up most of my posts, my wounds.  In the pictures below you will be able to see just how much it has improved.  I really believe between the zinc I started taking and using the Aloe with the Silver cream has made such a difference.  I am posting a pic from Dec. 12 and one from today and in 9 days the difference is amazing.

Pictures below.

Still have swelling on the side.

Improvement and setback. Dec. 20,2016. Week 8 Day 50

My big wound is now the smaller of the two wounds.  Both are healing nicely but now there is a small hole underneath the bottom wound.  I think it might be a stitch that has not dissolved.  If not better in a few days then I will call Dr. Habash and see what he says.

I actually slept on my tummy for about two hours last night.  Felt good but the stretching on my tummy was very tight so I will be working on stretching my tummy.  Never thought that it would be my tummy that made it hard to sleep that way.  The new girls were fine with it.

Getting ready for Christmas and all of the Family coming into town.  I just love Christmas and Family.  It makes everything I have been through even more special knowing that I now have removed the parts that were giving me so much stress.  At least I do not have to worry so much about getting cancer now.

Pictures below of the new hole.  Yuck

Much improvement in the big wound but now a small hole forming underneath it.

Side profile in a sports bra.  No longer an XL.  I can wear a L.  So excited.  Still have swelling on the sides, but that should be going down soon.
