Greetings from Munich! I am here in Germany this week visiting my friends who moved to Munich about five years ago. Florian and Christina were our neighbors across the street when we lived in San Francisco. Every year they invite me to attend Octoberfest with them, so I finally took them up on their offer. They are gracious hosts and have shown me the best time. It has been an absolute blast. This is my first trip to Germany and I am definitely coming back.
I want to recognize Dr. Michael Niccole and his practice, Cosmeticare in Newport Beach. Dr. Niccole performed my surgery. Not only is Dr. Niccole a gifted surgeon, he is a wonderful person, with an empathetic, caring, casual bedside manner. As you can see, my surgery went very well and I am thrilled with the results. The only negative side effect I experienced was a rather severe case of nausea from the anesthetic. That went away within 24 hours.
Of course I was nervous about having breast reduction surgery, but Dr. Niccole eased my anxiety throughout the process, from the initial consultation all the way through recovery. As you can see, I was able to get out and about, and be my version of normal, within a couple of days. When had my prior breast augmentation, the cuts we tiny. This lift procedure is more invasive and the cuts more extensive. This is the first time I had to deal with relatively large cuts, which take weeks to fully heal, and months of wound care to prevent scarring. The professionals at Cosmeticare helped with my wound care, including a couple of scar-preventing laser treatments to sure my boobs look spectacular!!!
It was so nice of Vicki, Shannon and Meghan to visit me and bring me flowers. Thanks Meghan for the new bra. Typical Meghan, she is always thinking ahead. When Meghan stopped by my house, it gave us a chance to forgive each other for the hurtful text messages that triggered our fight. I also appreciated Shannon’s comment that she can move past our tumultuous history and she can get along with me because she believes I “have shown remorse”. I feel the same way about her.
I am convinced that being able to finally get along with all the ladies reduced my stress, made me happy and sped up my recovery from surgery.
It was thoughtful of Shannon to get us all together for an early dinner at Farmhouse. It would have been nice if Lydia could have joined us, but I understand why Shannon didn’t invite her. Although, watching the episode, and seeing Lydia’s reaction to being excluded, made me regret her absence. We had a great time, despite the fact that Peggy continues to confuse everyone practically every time she opens her mouth. Just as Shannon and Lydia struggle to find some chemistry, I am really starting to struggle to do the same with Peggy. Peggy = craziness from the peanut gallery (that’s the one without the art). Stay tuned as my frustration with Peggy reaches a boiling point.
