Got the phone call I have been waiting for.  I go in next tue for reconstruction round 2 on Wed. I will be having a Lat dorsi this time and only getting one side done at a time.  I am really excited to be finally getting this done but very nervious and anxous at the same time after all the problems last time. So please say a prayer for me and keep fingers crossed all goes to plan this time.

Hi girls,

Not too much going on here! Hope your recon goes well next week Rainenz. I admire you for doing it- I'm too wussy. (I do hate being lop-sided tho)

I hope everyone is keeping warm. Its cold enough up here in the northern bit of the NI! We had a frost, brrr- I can't imagine snow- our houses are too cold!

I had a lovely time in Aus with my hubby. Shame the weather wasn't better, so much for winter sun, it was overcast, cool & showery. Better luck next time hopefully. Anyways have a good day Smile wherever you are
