So finally after my 3rd boob (as I call it) it finally going....  YAY!!!  After having a drain put in Monday week ago, then having it removed Thursday as it was super painful and making me nauseated.  That then left me with a hole under my arm which slowly leaked.  It was gross!  Now the hole has sealed up , the pain is fading and all that is left is a ball of scar tissue.

Today Tonight came out and did an interview with me about my complications and illness of my ruptured implants and with regard to the company not giving two hoots about the fact their product has done this to me.

Friday, I got my new tattoo I have been wanting for a long time.  All my tattoos have a meaning behind them.  This one resembles the rosary beads that my mum hung in my room from the day I was born as a protection from evil spirits. I may only go to church on special events but I still have a belief.

Sadly yesterday my Great Grandmother passed away in her sleep during the night.  It is a very rare way to pass away these days.  She had no cancer or diseases.  She was just 96 years old and it was her time to join the love of her life "Sal" Great Pop and her daughter Beverly.  Old Nan showed me that marriage is for life and true love never dies.  My great pop passed away 57years ago and she raised 4 boys out in the country by herself.  She had a friend who once tried to hold her hand and she slapped him and yelled at him "how dare you disrespect my marriage to Sal".  It took 2 years for her to talk to him again.

Lastly, last night was weigh in for the 12 week Body Morph.  So I am 1.5 weeks in and 3.8kg down.  Another 6kg to go to reach my goal weight.  Fingers Crossed!!!  I have also lost a fair few centimeters in measurements.

2012....... Beauty Fades

So I have decided that I really need to be more proactive in keeping up with this blog as  it is basically my online diary........

To bring it all up to date;

December 2011, I went for a standard breast screen and to which they found out I had a ruptured implant on the left side which had leaked silicone into my lymph nodes.  This was devastating to me as I had no idea what this toxic substance was going to do to my health.  23rd December I had my implants removed. This made it that I could not lift my son or actually do much for his first christmas.  This devastated me.

So after the removal, I am finding it hard to deal with not having my D breasts and now I am a B again.  This I am still finding it hard to deal with but it's slowly getting better.

The next step is getting investigated to have the lymph nodes removed as they were causing me such pain.  Finally, after many appointments my surgery came in May.  7 abnormal lymph nodes removed in a day procedure.  Now I have a massive Seroma (pocket of fluid) building up under my arm.  This is extremely painful.  It has been aspirated 3 times and I had a temporary drain inserted but it fell out. :(

Now on to the better things that have happened.....  My lil man turned one and we had a fabulous celebration.  A pirate themed party, which I made the cake.  I impressed myself.

My partner and I start a 12 week Body Morph challenge tomorrow so I will be keeping track of that on here also.  Here is my start photo

Well I am going to sign off for now.
