Fluid, boobs, and shopping!

Yesterday was my appointment with my plastic surgeon. She drained 30 ml out of my right back and told me I need to stay wrapped in a binder until we get this resolved. Let's hope it doesn't take long, because I HATE being wrapped.

She also talked to me about implants. I don't have my further to go with my expansion (maybe another 100 ml?), so I will need to soon decide if I want silicone or saline. I have no idea which one I will pick. She told me the saline implant has a harder feel to it, while the silicone is squishier and feels more natural, but it also has a flatter look to it. I am so afraid to end up with rack that looks like it is being squished by a sports bra! I was given a ton of information on saline and silicone implants to look over at home, so I could come back next week with questions for her. I plan on reading it over and also asking my YSC girls to tell me their experiences/recommendations. Hopefully that will help.

After I got back from my appointment, my sister Jess, talked me into going shopping. I had gift cards to use, so I went. After trying on a TON of jeans (I really made those poor girls work for their money), I managed to find 3 pairs that I liked! There were others I liked, but they were either too long on me or they didn't have my size. I was getting quite frustrated. At one point I thought I was going to be leaving the store empty handed, but Jess kept me going and here's what I ended up with....3 pairs of jeans (one of which were very expensive), 3 shirts, 3 FREE pieces of jewelry for spending so much, 3 pairs of underwear, a purse, and Cadbury Caramel eggs!! Here are some pics (please excuse the sideways underwear pic. I couldn't get it to turn)...

It felt so good to come home with things for ME! Thanks for making me go Jess.
