Getting dressed up!

Soooo, I'm getting ready for a big wedding this afternoon and it is my first dressy occasion since my double mastectomy. (6 months ago) One year prior I had a colostomy bag (still do) as part of my treatment for anal cancer. I will be seeing a lot of people who I have not seen since before my new body! I know the day is about the bride, but I also know that people who know what I've been through can not help but look at me. I don't want that to sound vain, but I am feeling really anxious. I have barely had anything to eat since lunch yesterday in an attempt to limit output via colostomy, that I am used to, but still need to wear a dress that fits loosly. I never had reconstruction on my breasts and am small framed anyhow so usually ok with just a lightly padded bra, but today just feel nervous!!! At least my nails are real, and look amazing! Wish me luck!

I bet you look amazing! I am wishing you luck and you go and have a wonderful time! I understand your feeling anxious, but, once you get there, I have a feeling you're going to have a lot of fun.

Look at all you've gone thru with cancer. Going to a wedding should be easy after that, right?

Have fun,

is pretty normal. Your real friends will rejoice in the fact that you're there, living life and are the strong, powerful woman that you are. Go and have a wonderful time.

Hugs, Renee
