I had my pre-op tests today, and was cleared for surgery.
This article popped up in my FB feed. I’m dropping it here for my own reference.
Over spring break, my Aunt’s friend walked into their condo, said “I hear you’re going flat,” and lifted her shirt to show me her scars. She never looked back. And though I am truly sad to have lived through all of this and still have more to go, I know flat is where I should end up. It won’t be pretty, but it will be 100% me. And I can live with that.
