Angelina Update

Hi all,

Thanks for all the good wishes and thoughts. They must have worked because I’m doing really well. Both surgeons were satisfied with how things went. I’ve been home since Wednesday afternoon and today went off the pain meds. I have a sexy pink compression thingy and haven’t seen the damage but it’s ok. There’s a tissue expander in there that’s going to pump me up in a few weeks. It’s not going to look the same but for some reason, it’s giving me an opportunity to do stuff I never thought I would. Like plan my tattoo. I have no tattoos now but I’m going to have a spectacular one in about a year. I never thought I’d want a hot tattoo on my chest but there you go. It might go viral. (No, I’m not going to tattoo “I’ve got a plan for that!” E.Warren)

My hair is growing back but in a strange way. I have a mid-cranial crest, like a Sleestak. I’ll have to see if it turns into a Mohawk. Almost ready to ditch the wigs just when we’re headed into fall. Oh well. Should be good. I’m going to color it violet for awhile.

So, looks like I’m going to make it after all and that’s saying something because you only know half of what I’ve experienced this year. There’s so much more. It deserves a book. More on that later.

I should be back blogging more regularly now that I’ve gotten that off my chest.

  1. come back soon

  2. I’m glad you’re kicking cancer’s ass. I’ve been following you since 2007 or so, and your voice matters to me. That tattoo is going to be amazing!

  3. You could so pull off a mohawk after what you have been through. Really good news keep it up.

  4. Great news. I hate that you had to go through all this though. Can you believe that we’ve all been hanging out together for around 11 years now! It’s been a wild ride. Too bad we live all over the country or we could get together and have a celebration of you kicking cancer!

  5. That’s great! I wish you the best.

  6. Ah, I’m so glad you’re on the mend and write that book!

  7. Thinking of you…hang in there…envision the finish line…

  8. You are amazing. You are loved.

  9. Great work RD and I’m grateful to hear about it. And thank you for the way you share about this with humor and grace. Keep it up!
