Ouch! I took Terry up on his offer to surgically remove my tattoo after the several sessions of laser. The laser did lighten and blur my tattoo, but chances were it would never removed it completely. The tattoo of Simon's name was a constant reminder of my past and needed to be removed for good.
So, when I walked into Terry's office I thought it was going to be simple. I thought I would sit in one of his exam rooms, and he would do his thing. I guess I didn't give it much thought? The nurse brought me back to his surgery room with machines, bright lights, and a tray of scalpels, and at that second my stomach knotted up. I must have run to the bathroom five times before he ever started. Sorry Terry, but I have a really bad nervous stomach.
After he numbed me I didn't feel a thing. It wasn't until 1 am when I woke up with my finger throbbing that I thought. . .what the heck have I done?!?
After the procedure I had to keep it from Eddie for two days which was not easy. I knew Eddie was going to be so happy it was finally gone, but ultimately I did it for my self.
