"You Should Feel Lucky to be Alive"

A comment yesterday afternoon from a local friend who reads this Blog, and apparently disagrees with my anger and disappointment over the reconstruction. "What does that mean?" I asked. She turned away, saying something like "WELL, if you don't GET IT."

I am not currently Stage IV; I do not have metastatic disease at the moment, that I am aware.

I am Stage IIIA and believe that, given I chose reconstruction and my surgeon is being paid for it, I am entitled to one that works.

And you will get that right boob. It just will take a little more healing time. I know you are already greatful to still be here with us. But you are also entitled to TWO new boobs. And you have a right to be pissed off and angry that you only got one.
