We Can Rebuild Her
Better than she was before… Better, Stronger, Happier. A Breast Cancer Journal

Happiness is…

Healing.

Eleven days after my First Surgery

This gruesome* photo was taken 11 days after my first surgery (Oct. 26, 2009, lumpectomy and sentinel lymph node removal).

* don’t click if you’re squeamish

Four months after my Second Surgery

This much less gruesome* photo was taken exactly 4 months after my second surgery (Nov. 13, 2009, complete auxilliary lymph node removal).

* don’t click if you’re squeamish

Unbelievable. I am so grateful to the magic of the human body.

More Happiness here.

    Don't know what I am looking at but looks painful…I much, much, much prefer the “after” shot…You look like a triathlete! But thanks for showing these moments. Taking it all in…”for better or for worse” as you say.

    breast, various lymph node removal scars under my right arm)
