Two years ago today I had a bilateral mastectomy. It was a bitter sweet day. Walking into the hospital at 5:30 in the morning I knew I was going in with my breasts and I would leave without them. However, I also knew that I was walking in with cancer and would walk out cancer free. Having the bilateral mastectomy was just the beginning of the journey. Months of chemotherapy and reconstruction would follow. Now, two years later, I do not look like a woman who has had breast cancer. July 16th will always be a milestone in my life....another year of being cancer free. Praise the Lord!
Here are some pics that were taken the morning of my mastectomy and during my time in the hospital.
