Bottom Surgery!!!



As I mentioned in my last posting, I had a consultation in Philadelphia on Monday about bottom surgery - it went very well, I liked the surgeon a lot and liked the work that she showed me.  So I'm scheduled for December 27 :-)

I had anticipated waiting until spring because of school, but classes finish in the fall on December 23, and there's over a month before spring classes, so this worked out, and financially it's VERY helpful as it lets me get this under my current insurance, and in the same year as top surgery so that I have only 1 deductible to worry about.

I had a "gut check" moment while waiting for the surgeon - this time my gut's response was "leave me alone! this is good!" - so apparently my gut is getting a little annoyed at me checking-in too much. I drove down (hate driving, but it seemed easier), and the drive back was awesome - nothing about the drive itself, just knowing that I'm getting this done, that it's scheduled and before we start 2017 I will be just about as much of a woman as I can be :-) (physically at least)

Now I get to have the conversation with my brother in which I tell him :-)  That should be fine, we've already spoken about me being trans and he's totally supportive, just awkward having any medical discussions with him.

That's so good to read this Friday morning when everyone around me is talking doom and gloom. It's funny but I read this and thought to myself 'You want what I have and vice versa - can't we just swap bodies?' then I read the comment you had left for me - and I can see you were thinking the same kind of thing :)

I wish you well in your continued journey and am so pleased that you have this to look forward to. It's great news.

Oh, right, you're in the UK - how is all that going? I woke up in the middle of the night and thought to check, was shocked to see the result!

Now just waiting for Scotland to vote again and leave the UK!  I'm of Scottish descent, would like to see them break free :-)

Hi Lady


Congrats on physically having arranged your physical alteration to represent the lady you've always been.  Yes, life have steps for everyone to climb, but without these steps we wouldn't be learning.


Go out, show the world the lady you are.  Can't be held back and ready for action.


Remember safety first, and lots of hugs
