"Do Not Wash in Hot Water"

They forgot to give me the instructions for the expanders. They didn't tell me they would shrink if I washed them in hot water. I guess I shouldn't have taken that hot shower!
Actually, the truth is, when the doctor filled it the needle punctured the expander, so I "sprung a leak" on one side and I am now back to a crinkly, sagging bumpy lump of flesh for a boob. It is quite attractive if you are into that sort of thing. I am quite lopsided- it looks GREAT in a swimsuit....not! I wonder if the new Speedo competition suit would take care of that.

So, anyway, I have to go in for another surgery next week to replace the expander.

To top things off, my computer crashed the same time my boob did, so I took that to my computer guy to get it fixed.(My computer) Too bad he doesn't fix expanders.... "Here, do you think you can fix this to?"
He doesn't think I lost any of my data, which would be good, because I am not the best at backing up my stuff. I backed up a lot of it, but not everything. I think I am way beyond the point of crying... I am too numb to care. But I did learn not to ask "What Else?" I did that, and the contents of the top shelf in my cabinet landed on my head.

On a positive note, my hair, eyebrows and eyelashes are coming back quickly. I have a "5 o'clock shadow" that the kids at swim enjoy "petting". They had better watch out, sometimes I bite.
