Gift to Me - New Bern, NC

Alright...i don't usually write on social media...

Alright...i don't usually write on social media but i feel this could help someone else. I will be getting my new found friends may 9. I am too excited. Being a service member, you go through a lot expecially away from loves ones. You never have a chance to take care of yourself. Well my chance is coming. I met a wonderful doctor, Dr. Zannis and he was straight to the point , which i like. He answers his emails himself, big plus! The staff is great. I have called and they always took care of me especially with my decisions. I feel very confident. I can't wait to have the breast of my choice and feel like a woman in heels and not in boots. Well everyone here i go. Will show a before and keep you updated.

Today was my day

Good evening ladies...I did it..whew. Well let me go through the run down while i am alert. Today was a busy morning. First was late getting kids to school. Got lost picking up my own godbrother and significant other kept texting me. (he had to work. Our jobs are high demanding but was here to check on me. I will get to that in a few, too funny). Ok so to the office...traveled about 1hr and 40 mins. Yes you will travel to get excellent care ladies! This is your health and investment! Finally made it 20 mi s prior and they were ready for me. You must have your driver there. Please make sure it is someone who cares about you and who will help you along the way. You will need that love..(My God Brother is better than yours, lol) sorry meds!
The staff was awesome and so funny. They ease you and make sure you are comfortable. Dr. Zannis came in with his warming smile. Ask me how was everything and asked about my ride. I believe to make sure this person would be caring for me. So , so far everything is good. OR was very clean. Staff goes over my allergies and still making me laugh. Let me just say this, i am a straight to the point chic, if they can humor me, they are good. I love my RN and CRNA!!. LIGHTS OUT!!! Now procedure is over and i am wake with clothes on. I dont remember a thing. But i notice the pain. OMG... i can take pain but oooooh. Remember i had two surgeries so pain will be there. Plus i am a very stubborn chic when it comes to taking pain meds. The travel...pain but he stop to get a biscuit and made me take a pain pill. And then the crazy talk. Lol..lets just say, take my phone away...i didn't get sick which is so usually for me...all in all i love the size that i can see. I am not allow to take bra or bandages off. My nurse talked to my brother and he signed paper that he was going to take care of me and get me to appt next week. Left breast is a lot sore that right. I understand that breast don't understand what is going on. Patience ladies...bring your meds to appt!! Have button down shirt and pJ... no cleaning up. Have everything on top and not on bottom shelves. So far i can see the outline and ooooh i envy my boobs. Lol..will have before and after. Oh and bf is sooo scared to touch me. Lol...update later...

Day 2. Whew

Good morning. chest is tight. I feel like i have two little people on my chest. Lol... sleeping wasn't easy. It wasn't that huge of a deal because i haven't slept well since my last deployment. Plus i was able to look over my summer school work. Ladies, drink lots of water. Have some good pillows. with you later

My nurse checking up on me..

Well i am walking around. No nausea at all. Drinking lots of water. Not taking much pain meds. Again, my pain might be different. I can tolerate pain a lot. Nurse Sarah just called to see how i was doing. She made sure i was doing the right things and getting rest. They really make you feel like family.
