Happy Yule to you too!
As usual I am a bit late with my greetings. Happy, Glad Yule to you! I planned to call you yesterday and then Grandmda needed a bunch ot stuff wrapped for her service people. We had gone out to get hair done and got some pie which she ate without taking another glypizide so she shot up to 312 on her sugar = no help at all for wrapping, but she did take her meds. By the time we got done and I got back here to Bill and to have my dinner, it was after 11 p.m. By the time I changed Bill and ate and fed my animals it was about 2 in the morning and I still had to wrap the gifts for my service people who came to work for us today. OOOPS Yule done fell out--- 'twas gone!

So Happy Yule and Merry Christmas --- late for Yule and Early for Christmas. I ordered your gift early so that I could be sure to ship to you in time. The place I ordered it from ( on Dec 8th with express shipping to me ) didn't ship it until the 21st for some dumb reason and that only after I pitched a bitch. I think they also double shipped it then. ARGH! I'll have to send it either next week or on the third of Jan. All my plans got chocked into a cocked hat with the boob surgeon, my dumb arm and Bill's getting the flu last week. I think I am back on track now.

So far all tests are not showing anything on my boob. The definitive one, skin and needle biopsy comes on Jan 13th. OUCH! I also have to get records from docs showing neck and shoulder problems for a long time so that I can get the insurance to cover reduction and reconstruction on both breasts. Otherwise I will be left lopsided, off balance and still witht the nerve problems. Since taking off my bra for all the time, seventy-five percent of the pain is gone, almost all of it in the upper arm and what is left in the elbow and hand and lower arm is manageable. I put my bra on one day to drive to Gainesville and back and that night the pain was back big time. I drove to Gainesville again this week and also last week without the bra and didn't have the return of the pain. Given the choice between boobs and arms/hands, I choose arms/hands! NO! I am not looking forward to any surgery. YES! I want to get it done now while I am still insured by Bill's company and healthy enough to recover well from the surgery. At my age, deteriorating health due to the diabetes etc. is a concern. I like my boobs, but I like my life and being able to draw and paint and drive and type much more! Your sister doesn't quite understand this. I think you just might.

I'm typed out right now. I love you, "Brat", so behave and send all the good healing Karma or prayers you can spare my way over the next few months. I hope to talk with you sometime in the next couple of weeks.

I hear that! With me, the boob on the side that doesn't work tends to get a rash underneath it, because I don't/can't lift my right arm much. I tend to wear the sports type bras because they don't dig into me as much, are all cotton, and manage the "bounce" well. I still consider getting them cut down to a reasonable size, before they screw up my back and neck, but that would be "elective" and not covered by any insurance.

Hope that the reduce and reconstruct gets done, is covered, and goes really well. I'll be jealous, of course.... ;-)

I have found a way to avoid the rash under the boobs. Simply use a good deodorant and antiperspirant on the underside of the boob and on the place where they land on the chest. It works. I use Sure unscented.
