Drain Free

Yesterday I had another shampoo :)  A sweet friend came by to visit and she french braided my hair.  I then got jeans and a shirt on while another sweet friend brought her two little girls over to hang with my kids so I could go to the doctor.  Claire and Hannah were thrilled to have little ones in the house, Avery notsomuch!  Dr S pulled all four drains!  He also removed the tape from the incisions.  Good thing my boobs are numb or he might have had to surgically remove me from the ceiling.  I was feeling so good being drain free that dh and I stopped at the new McD''s and had fries and hot fudge sundae.  Came home and took a nice long nap.  Dinner was delivered, eaten and we all headed out to RLG.  Yes I went too!  It was just down the street so if I tanked John could drive me home. I made it the whole two hours sitting there slightly stoned :)  It felt good to be out.  I also slept in bed last night!  Bliss.  Today I am laying low in bed just because.  I feel good but don't want to overdo it.  I have plans to shower in a little bit.  Recovery is happening.
Ian asked me last night if I was considered a breast cancer survivor, John answered appropriately, your mom is a breast cancer avoider!  I'll take that for now.
