Post Surgery update

Hello all, it is the husband again.

Brandie is done with surgery.  This was the right call.  The surgeon found a problem and corrected it.  One of her temporary implants had to be removed.  She is not happy about this part, but certainly will be glad to be feeling better.

It was such good news to hear from the doctor.  Especially given the fact that just a few hours ago there was still uncertainty and that we knew this action once done would result in yet another setback to her reconstruction.  As her husband, it is hard to see someone you love so much in so much pain.  She was stuck for so many days, struggling to control the pain, while trying being a mother, teacher, wife, etc. 

She needs some time to recover, but the next post you see should be from her and hopefully it will be further good news.  Thanks everyone!



  1. Eric, she had to deflate the one implant for the radiation weeks ago right? Because there was a spot that they couldn't radiate? So, is this the same implant they removed today? Poor thing. I hope this fixes it. My tissue expanders hurt everyday too. Tell her we are all praying and pulling for her.

  2. So glad it's over... Sending you guys lots and lots of love and wishes for a peaceful Christmas...

    Thanks for the updates, Eric. May you, Brandie and your kids all have a peaceful, restful holiday. And may the New Year bring you all a return to normalcy. What a year you have had. xo Chris, San Diego
