    Hi Ladies!
    I got the tatoos done yeasterday. My Ps decided he was
    going to numb me anyway. Those shots hurt. I have
    feeling. The tatoos didn't hurt though. We picked out the
    size and the color. They said I can have anything touched
    up that I want. They said I am the boss. I thought that was
    great. The bled some yesterday, but I think that is pretty
    much stopped. I have ointment to put on when I take off
    annother dressing tomorrow. I asked for a tramp stamp,
    they said ok but they only have flesh colord ink! No pretty
    colors!LOL So I didn't get one. LOLSo I couldn't get neon
    pink either!LOL
    Anyway so far a breeze compared to everything else. I am
    glad to finish my reconstruction.Maybe not perfect but
    starting to feel like me!
    Thanks for sticking with me!
    love and hugs,

    Can you believe that this is the end of everything that you have gone through? YOU DID IT
    brcansur replied to cindy12345678's response:
    I am so glad you are doing well and everything is finally done for you yeah!!! But why not a tramp stamp come on ! Plus no neon pink or other colors he needs to get with the times and have more colors now !!!! Plus some glow in the dark would be good too then we could find our way in the dark if our headlight decide to go out ya know !!! Us ladies need to have some fun during all this crap in our lives of beating breast cancer our humor is one of them we never do give up on it just keeps on going at least mine has. I am so very happy for you now all of it is behind you, you are done with breast cancer no more treatments no more surgeries done party time celebrations are to begin and never end. Go have fun my friend live life to the fullest and never stop. Sew till your hearts content and just enjoy life for every minute of everyday. Stop and smell the flowers,and look at the birds and the sunset. Enjoy the little things in the world that we used to take for granted because today is the beginning of your new life after cancer and all the stuff you had to go through to get past it. I am so very proud of you and happy for you keep doing what your doing and being strong and positive. Have a great day and week ahead angel hugs Roberta,

    WOW CINDY! CONGRATS ON THE TATS! Way to go girl. hoping now you feel complete. Got back from florida at 3am this morning. Had a great time, relaxed as much as I could without this back issue thing! I noticed my scars are starting to fade even more and my nipples seem to finally have completely healed. HOORAY! We did it! We will always stick together thru thick and thin. I see my p.s. on the 19th to see if i need any revisions, or extra touch ups. I have to say, they did look great in a swim suit, so i guess i should thank him again, lol. So glad you did so well, I'm very, very, very proud of you!
    Love, hugs, and lucky shamrocks
