Sooooo Excited!!!

Just thought I would add a little update to the blog. I am having a "mommy makeover" on Sept. 1! For those of you unfamiliar with the term, it is a set of plastic surgery procedures that help reverse a little of the damage the kiddies have done to your body. In my case, I am having a breast augmentation, a mini-tummy tuck, and liposuction on my saddlebags, upper stomach and hips! YAY ME!!

So for those of you who are at that point where you just don't feel like you will ever be normal, it is possible! It has been one year and I don't give it much thought at all. Sure I still have issues from the Chiari, but nothing that brings me down. Life is too short to lie around on a couch and watch the world go on without you. I did that for way too long. Now, I'm living my own life. I am a mother and a wife to my family, not a burden to them.

I want you all to know that last year I was having brain surgery; that is how miserable my life had become. Now, a year later, I am having elective surgury like a normal woman because that is how amazing my life has become!!

I would appreciate any good thoughts or prayers offered as I think and pray for you all.

God Bless!

I am very happy for you! It is good to see that you are choosing to do something that may help you feel better about yourself. I know that Chiari can drag you down and make you feel miserable, useless and just less of a human being all together. I say do whatever it takes to help you be happy... life is short! I hope your surgery goes perfectly and that you have a speedy recovery!

YES! YES! and YES!! Thank you Christine! I was soooooooo tired of feeling like crap all the time! I feel like a different person since the surgery and now I am going to look like one. I hope you are doing well and wish you all the best!

God Bless!
