    3 Years

    Today is my 3rd anniversary. At my 2nd year follow up, Dr. Hu said she didn't need to see me anymore, unless I felt something was wrong. So, since I didn't have to show up for check ups anymore, I sent my dear doctor flowers instead.

    At a risk of sounding like a cliche, I want to say that this woman changed my life and I am forever grateful. I am pain free, tall and straight. Working out, swimming, doing zumba and wearing anything I want. I wear my scar with pride, like a badge of honor. A couple of days ago, approaching my anniversary, I wore a dress with a v-cut on back to the bra line, that showed off my scar. Call me weird, but it was a celebration of my strength and I wanted people to see my scar!

    Wishing good luck to all of you, contemplating, waiting and recovering!
