So why am I not nervous about or crying over the surgery or the soon to be loss of both my breasts and not having reconstruction? I’ve gone over it in my head a zillion times and can’t figure it out. I know I’m not ‘normal’, but seriously this is odd. Mark gave me lots of compliments of why that is and without sounding vain, I kind of agree. He rocks my world.

I won’t be alone in the hospital either as he’s spending the night with me. I told him that I really appreciate that, but he should sleep at home to get a good night’s rest. Besides getting a look of “are you nuts?” His exact words were “I am not leaving you alone” and also how he wouldn’t be able to sleep without me, etc. I just didn’t want him to be uncomfortable trying to sleep in a chair. However, I found out yesterday when the pre-op nurse called that I’ll be in a private room which has a sleeper. When I told Mark, I got the “ha ha, I won!” from him – which I knew was coming, but that’s okay in my book.
