Today, we went to see the surgeon to check in on progress and talk about what kind of surgery. She was doing the exam and said she could no longer feel the tumor. WHAA? I took a turn – me either. If some dude was randomly walking down the hall, I would have gotten him to check it out, too. Damn straight the chemo is working. When we first started, the tumor was too big to even have surgery. So YEAH WEIRD CANCER GUY, TAKE THAT!
Then, we talked plan. From the beginning, I’ve felt like a double mastectomy is the way to go. A lumpectomy is great, but this kind of cancer likes to rush back in. So Barbie boobs it is! I’m very excited about this in a lot of ways. One, I won’t be able to push a vacuum cleaner or cook for like six weeks. Obviously, I’ll have at least 33% perkier boobage. In the TMI department, they might be able to take tissue from my gut (Kick ass!) and salvage existing nipples. Just when I thought there were options, the doctor said you can page through a catalog and pick out the ones you want. A Victoria’s Secret catalog? Brian is a little too excited about this possibility. But if Brian were getting a new male appendage, I would TOTALLY want to shop at the penis store. So it’s all fair.
1- Can’t touch this tumor – it feels like it’s no longer there.
2- I’m getting Barbie boobs.
3- Another confirmation that chemo is working makes all the trauma of it worth it.

I AM SOOOO HAPPY AND EXCITED FOR YOU! Much love.
This is all way too fabulous – SO happy for you, your tummy tuck, your new boobs – there has to be an upside to this besides not vacuuming 🙂

Excellent news Jacki!
A great week all-in-all. . .
As one who’s got a belly boob, I can attest that my posture’s improved b/c I don’t slouch (no belly pooch), it beats liposuction, and no expanders required. 3 positives. Luv ya J!
Wow. Just wow. All of it. xo
That all makes my heart sing for you guys! Yay!!!
Jacki, this is great news. I can’t wait to see your new look! 🙂 We will be there the first week of April…. Hope it will work to have some time for a visit.
Keep going! xo Joy

Congrats on zapping the tumor!! You so rocked it. Big high five!! If you would like to do some kind of ‘goodbye my lovely breasts’ ritual I’d be happy to assist before the surgery.
Hugs and congrats Katie
