I was open about my diagnosis and kind women, so MANY kind women, came out of the woodwork comforting me, sharing their own experiences. My dentist's hygienist told me, "The surgery is a big deal. Bigger than you think." She was so right. Lying there in ICU, I felt reduced to nothing but skin and bone. Waiting to heal, waiting to be something more again.
