OMG miss a day and it takes forever to catch up! Oh My God...Julie, where do you ever find all those nearly nekkid hunks??? I think they must be living with you, and then you just take their picture every day! LOL...great eye candy foah shuah!
Dorkie, Good hints about the non-child-proof caps, and keeping everything at waist height that you might need. I just used a LONG shoestring that I tied, and put it over my neck, then could safety pin the drains on it, for showering. That worked well and I had several. BOY that seems like eons ago that I had to do all that chit. AND my drains were in for 5 wks (well at least one of them) and it was soooo miserable. I think the drains were the worst part of it, for me. The fills were no probs for me, but so many girls have a lot of pain with them.
Great addition to the lounge, Shannon! AND I like the name Buff too, that Dorkie came up with. BUT I know you had a great time with him last night, but ya know....Dorothy is NOT looking, and I am gonna grab Buff and take him home wid me! Dotty mentioned I like variety, yuppers she is right! Dotty, you should NOT have let go of Buff.....now you will have to catch up...and we are running away......lol.
Hugs to all....cannot even try to address everyone! OH Bernie, I forgot, that was soooo funny about the blonde in the casino...I will send that to my DH...he will crack up over that one.
Happy MonKey Dey...hope everyone's drs appts went well today....time to DWINK UP...and I am having to dwink on de run, as I don't want Dotty to catch me......

Kat u drink on the run and I'll take over----
Drains vs fills--never had fills but they sound so painful for almost everyone. ick--Te drains were annoying but not painful--u guys who've had recon are the real troopers--I just did not want to go thru that.
And besides the tenders still like me I'm an oddity to them but they're not to me. ahahahahaI know how to HANDLE them.
And Stella has been ood all day--she washed my clothes and rubbed my feet--she even excercized a little for me--see she'll come around, now i have to sleep with one eye open--she doesn't fool me.

OOPS, gotta get back to Buff.......

Lara, you are absolUtely correct in that your employer can't say no to the time off. And I am not shore if ye know dis but...YOU are covered under "the american's with disabilities act", a law established in 1989/1990 that includes all cancer survivors and protects our jobs, they can't touch you or they in big trouble. Read up on it online at ada.gov. I am so glad you fired dr dick. And did you know I also fired a doctor named Dr. Dick? I guess they are eberywhere. You will have your foobs in no time. I am finally loving mine ... that is as long as I have clothes on.
Juliet, I love de snoopy pic, I am a fan of his. One of my first books that I ever bought through school was a Charlie Brown book. And damn, I cant remember de name of it but can picture it. It was one of those little square books with big pics and a sentence or too on each page. Darn, now mese gotzta tink about it as I should be able to come up with de name. ahhh, I got it - "Happiness is like a warm Puppy", can't believe I pulled de name outta mese ass.
Well mese berry tired and should be in bed already, I stayed up too late both Saturday and Sunday nights. I hope ye goils keep de partay going. I know where Katwinka is, uh huh yep, I ken hear Buff moaning all de way from here!
Love to all of you girls, sawry mese not address all ye, it jest getting to hard to do that with so many wunderfoil loungettes joining our partay! I lift my glass and say ~burp, oops, dat wuz not spose to hapben. cheeRs!
Camille, you go girl in getting Stella to work for you. DorkY is berry impressed. And mese gots an idea on getting rid of moler foker once and fir all. can you show Stella the pic of the hot guy that Juliet posted earlier today? He has moles and has more than John Boy. I know she is hot for moles and maybe, jest maybe, she will like him more. And if is interested in him, maybe we can add him as yet another tender. Hell, can't have too many tenders, it impossible. How are you feeling todey? Is the D issue under contwol? I sure hope so. And did you pass when you went to de heart doctor, err I mean fart doctor? I hope you got an A. Hey, I jest looked at de dude with the moles again. It looks to me that he has a widdle teeny tiny penis growing out of his naval, does anyone else see that or am I nucking futs?

Good morning, Loungettes!
Goldie--have fun getting through all the posts, it's practically a full time job keeping up here! Yup, 19 hours and 45 minutes, as my mother reminds me very often. One of the consequences of being obese (BMI was 36 at the time of recon). 1 breast surgeon to do the prophy mast, 2 PS's to do the recon, one doing microsurgery. 4 drains for weeks. Had anesthesia brain for almost a year. Hope I never have to go through anything like that again, but the results are MARVELOUS!
DorKable--yeah, I figure I've had enough anesthesia to last 2 lifetimes. Doing my best to avoid any more. Doing my best to avoid ever having another IV started, for that matter. Totally lost several days except for a few flashes of memories. Very, very disconcerting. Are you putting warm packs on your eye? Wet a washcloth with warm water (not hot), wring it out and fold it up and put it on your eye until it cools. Should help things feel better.
Canny--I've been having weird, bordering on bad, dreams myself lately. Not sure what that's all about but maybe it's just the time of year? Anyway, tell your GS to send his to me, I've already got 'em so one more wont' be any trouble!
ORLA--remind your employers that breast cancer is considered a disability under the ADA. They HAVE to make reasonable accommodations for you. Your local civil liberties union and the American Cancer Society will both help you with this.
Wahine--we must have all figured out using a string or ribbon or something to pin our drains to when we showered. I had drains top and bottom, ended up hanging a ribbon around my neck. What we will do to get a shower!
Blackcat--the advice about putting things on a lower level before surgery is very, very good. I wasn't allowed to lift my arms above shoulder high for 6 weeks, couldn't lift more than 5 pounds for 6 weeks, couldn't push or pull anything for 6 weeks. Of course, I couldn't stand up straight for a lot longer than that! I had home health nurses, aides, physical therapist and occupational therapist come to my home to help me get back on my feet, too. Take all the help you can get. You may feel most comfortable sleeping in a recliner for a time. I set up my living room with my recliner as the "center piece" as it were, with a stand on either side, with a notebook and pens,(to keep track of meds), small baskets for my pain and anxiety pills and antibiotics, the TV remotes and set my laptop up on an office chair that I could easily roll around so I could listen to audiobooks whilst napping during recovery. I arranged for meals to be delivered (and had some frozen, but forgot to take into account that going up and down stairs was going to be a challenge, so they stayed in the freezer in the basement until later in recovery), and had friends and people from church visiting or calling me daily to check on me. Had to get some friends to do laundry and sweep the floors a few times. I was surprised how many people were so eager to help me out! Now, keep in mind that DIEP recon is a much bigger procedure than what you are thinking about, so the recovery will be quicker and easier. But it's better to over prepare than wish you had prepared better!
Woops, running late for work again, tata, Loungettes!

Good morning girls,

Lara, that is just awful what your employer is doing, giving you such a hard time. I’m sure you have actions you can take legally, if what they are doing is illegal!!! And we will stand behind you. Ok, DorK has commented on this, American’s with Disabilities Act. As well and NM. See, we are here to help. We got your back girl. Are there some pictures you want me to post?
Cami, if you had TE drains, you would have had reconstruction. TE’s are tissue expanders. Did you have MX? Stella washed your clothes???? OMG, I am shocked, as she doesn’t do housework….LOL!!
DorK, I don’t know how you make it through a work day, when you stay up so late the night before. I wouldn’t be able to funkshun. But glad that Kathy was able to help in caring for Buff.
OMG Kathy, you are so right, only Dork would notice the penis growing out of that belly button………..LMAO! But I gots to say, I have to agree.
Wow NM, that is a long time to be under. But glad you are a happy camper with your results. I didn’t know that a person’s BMI would make for a longer surgery. I just looked mine up, it’s 23.9, within normal, but right on the edge of being overweight. Over weight starts at 25. Here is the link if anyone wants to check their BMI. www.cdc.gov/healthyweight/asse... How very sweet of you to take Cami’s GS’s dreams away.
2 for 2’sday. I found 2 Happy Camper Cocktails
1/3 oz Kahlua® coffee liqueur
1/3 oz Bailey's® Irish cream
1/3 oz Frangelico® hazelnut liqueur
Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice cubes. Shake well. Strain into an old-fashioned glass 1/4 filled with ice cubes, and serve.
1/2 oz vodka
1/2 oz Southern Comfort® peach liqueur
1/2 oz Midori® melon liqueur
1/2 oz amaretto almond liqueur
1/2 oz Blue Curacao liqueur
1 splash orange juice
1 splash pineapple juice
top with 7-Up® soda
Pour all ingredients into a hurricane glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with a slice of orange and a cherry, and serve.
Raising my glass and cheering all my good friends here.

Oh oldie I love that first drink
Good Morning everyone.
Goldie I didn't have any recon but I had 2 drains on both sides--2 different operstions and I had to keep track of the drainage and write it down and went 2x a week for months I would stop draining on my worse side and my dr. told me NO BATS, OR SHOWERS ick so I didn't for almost 3 months--I took whore baths and washed my head but that was it. No one else told me I could take a shower and he changed my drains so I kept them along time and my Onc. was havin a fit cuz she wanted me back in chemo for the red devil ha she waited he would not release me-but when I had that done I was in the hospital about 10 days--supposed to get out the next day so I don't know what went wrong, but it ended up right. And my sister didn't have any recon and she had drains (diff. hospital) heres was in for about 3 weeks. So drains must be pretty common here.--Oh my niece and cousin did too-no recon on any of us. U leave the hospital with rhem in.?????
Udder den dat--Stell almost got out last night but my dog stopped her Today she's going to clean the carpeting in my bedroom-(her punishment) wild woman Oh she ate my stack of cookies too, or I did and don't member-prolly me. And Johnboy is no where to be found--unless he buried himself in a ditch somewhere.
Oh I'm putting my feet up while Stella works today. hahaha

Ms Cami, I had lumpectomy and had drains too. I think those are a given for all of us! I think I had 2.
MX, (not BX) is Mastectomy
TE, Tissue Expanders (used for reconstruction)
