Favorite Bathrooms

  • Home Sweet Home
  • When I'm @ someones house: the one farthest away from the crowd
  • @ the Mall: Macy's (as public bathrooms go this one is very nice)
  • If I can't make it to Macy's...JC Penney's will have to do (they recently remodeled so it is better than it was. I don't know why they didn't ask for my input???)
  • Monterey Bay Fish Grotto in Monroeville has a great bathroom
  • Ponte Vedra Inn and Club, My fav place to vacation, their rooms have the most wonderful bathrooms

Who would have thought!!!

Hello my friends. I’m back! My surgery went well and I am now cancer/boob free. Expanders are in place and waiting to be filled :) Pathology was good. The tumor was a bit bigger than they thought 3cm instead of 2cm and they found 1 micro metastasis in one of the lymph nodes they removed which my surgeon is not concerned about but will change my chemo cocktail. My crohns has behaved well through all of this. As a matter of fact the anesthesia and pain killers have slowed my bowels down to a normal persons (who would have thought). I’ve had many surgeries in the past and went right back to my version of normal right away. I of course had no food on Friday but I started eating Saturday…not a lot but enough and I didn’t go till Monday night. Only twice on Tuesday. Only once on Wednesday and so on. As of today I am going only once or twice a day. I’m starting to hope this will last but I’m sure it won’t. I shall enjoy it while it does tho. I’m sure my bathroom misses me hee hee. I should start waving to it when I go past :). My GI wants me to call and let him know how things went. I think I’ll do that next week. Until then

Love, Laugh, and Always know where the nearest bathroom is
