This past Wednesday I had a consultation with a surgeon regarding what is commonly referred to as “Reduction Mammoplasty”.
You read that right.
I am having The Girls (as they say) “cut down to size”.
This isn’t exactly one of those ‘elective, corrective surgeries’ that can be done ” under the radar”.It is going to be noticeable.
I mean, have you met me?!
And if you have ‘met’ me . . . well . . . Why are we even having this conversation?!
All that aside, let’s just get to the nut cu… err… the rat killin’ of the whole thing. Shall we?
My Goal Date for this whole ‘Procedjah‘ is Tuesday, February 26, 2013.
I’m scheduling it that far in advance because there are two races I intend to run between now and then:
The St. Jude Half Marathon on December 2nd, 2012; and
The New Orleans Rock ‘N’ Roll Half Marathon on February 24th, 2013.
I’ll have the surgery the 26th of February which will give me ample time to recover and train to run the St. Jude Full Marathon (my first 26.2) in December 2013.
That’s what I have coming up in the next year and a few weeks.
I’m sharing this here to ask for your prayers and positive thoughts as I prepare mentally and physically for this surgery.
My intention is to be so completely prepared – on every level – that the surgery and recovery go like a hot knife through butter.
Literally and physically.
Oh, and if you have any question about the “necessity” of this surgery, let’s just say that the doctor said (and I quote): Oh we have got to do something about this. And that was before I told him I was a runner!
So there you have it.
The biggest personal decision I have never been able to hide.
Because what am I gonna say come February 27, 2013: I have NO IDEA where they went! I just woke up and they were GONE!! ???
