Tia, glad you are starting to feel better. We do put ourselves through a lot of pain to become ourselves, but most of the pain is temporary. I hope you and Debi enjoy the rest of your time in Europe, and we wish you a smooth trip back home.

It sounds like you are progressing along as planned Tia. I won't tell you to suck it up hun. I don't want to make you cry. The first night post-op, Ava nearly crushed my hand in pain. I will be doing the same in two months. I think Ava is stronger than I am so I'm sure I won't be able to crush her hand.

It's all down hill from here girl. Give Deb a few big hugs and take a few for your self too.

OK girls, thank you for all of your support but right now I need your help, HELP!!!!

Today is Deb's birthday, not a bad place to celebrate it on the Costa del Sol. But I am not up to speed yet so could use some help in telling her just how great she is. Come on now, ramp it up to the wild side for my sweet girl! And please don't tell her that I mentioned anything.

Thanks and hugs,
Tia Anne

Lovely Deb,

In the conversation we had waiting on the wall after our boat ride, in the hugs we shared after your wedding or when we dropped you off at the hotel, in our casual conversations at my house or sitting in Cassie’s living room while I strummed chords on the guitar - in every instance I could feel something radiating from you. An aura of the Earth, of the maternal, of understanding. Of love. Anyone who has the privilege of spending time with you will know it. What you embody is rare to encounter. There is no mystery why Tia is so dedicated to you.

Happy birthday dearest Deb. And many many more.

Your Sister - or better, your Daughter -

Stephanie

OK all, this has been the big reveal day for me. Eight days post op, the coronal sutures and the eyelid sutures came out. The nose bandages came off and I have been set free from FacialTeam. We will remain in Marbella Old Town for the next week and have another post op consult before leaving town but that is just affirmation that things are still proceeding as expected.

Bruising is still present although less than I anticipated at this point and the swelling is still high. When I look at the image below and compare it to the pre op image I feel that there is still a long way to go to catch up to where I started from. But the promise is in this new swollen and bruised visage that I am so looking forward to seeing when she gets here. The x-rays show the bone structure changes but those are still intellectual, I am waiting to see the new me. But for now, the picture below has me happy!

Glad to see you recovery continues to progress well. I hope your recovery continues as well as it has been going. I am sure given a couple of week you will be looking fabulous rather than multi coloured.  ;)

Big hugs!!

WOW.  Having been through this I see right past the inevitable bruises and swelling. 
Many subtle and major changes, especially your brow ridge.  Great balance.  Beautiful results girl!

DAY 22 or DAY 8 Postop

Consultation went well for Tia this morning and my birthday yesterday was amazing. Thank you to all of you for so many wonderful greetings. Thank you Stephanie for your message that brought me to tears. Of joy of course. Between it being the first day that Tia felt like being up (I'm not sure how well she really felt, but she faked it very well all day with a smile on her face); and a spa treatment; and spending the afternoon on the beach; and all of your wonderful wishes for a special day I am overwhelmed. Tomorrow we check out of our resort and move to a hotel apartment in Old Town Marbella for a week, I'm hoping we aren't too let down about the new place. This resort has been very pampering.

Here are some pics to prove yesterday happened. I have a pic of Tia topless. I just haven't figured out how to post it in a way that doesn't get us kicked off of Susan's. I wasn't sure she wasn't going to get us kicked off the beach, although there were other women who were topless.
Wading in the Mediterranean on my 66th.

Birthday dinner was pizza, sangria and limoncello merengue for dessert.

And this is my favorite pic that sums up my most favorite birthday ever.

I know that someone has a Feet In Front Of thread going on but we couldn't find a fireplace. We just had to take the Mediterranean Sea instead.

Love to All of You,
Deb and Tia, still traveling, still crazy and still in love

Debi, are you moving to the San Cristobal? If so, please let me know how you like it and any other details. We’re working out where we’re going to stay in June, and the SC is a five minute walk from Ocean Clinic, where I’ll be going.

Lovely pictures! I think “toasty toes” can apply to Mediterranean sun as well as fireplaces!

Stephanie, we will be staying at the Puerta de Aduares, which should be about four hundred meters from the Ocean Clinic on the north side of Old Town. The San Cristobal was not available, this is Holy week in Spain and everything is pretty busy. We will check out the San Cristobal while we are in Old Town and we have an appointment at Ocean Clinic tomorrow afternoon. We will let you know how it all checks out.

Ah, thank you Tia! I hadn't heard of that one yet. Ocean Clinic recommended San Cristobal, El Fuerte, Lima, and The Townhouse. Please let me know how you like Puerta de Aduares.

We're considering getting an AirBNB with a kitchen and cooking our own meals to save money, but they may be unavailable by now. Since FacialTeam provides transportation for Cassie, and Ocean Clinic doesn't for me, it might make more sense for us to stay in Old Town.

Enjoy yourselves, stay in the shade, and take it slow. Love ya both!

Stephanie

Oh, and I should start including this: 5M9D!

They are still toastie toes anyway Deb. Dang it! Sorry I'm a day late. Happy Birthday Debi  :icon_birthday:

Tia you look great. It's to be expected. It's your Badge of Honor. Enjoy the warmth of the sun and sticking those toastie toes in the sand for another week.

Debi,

  Love the pictures and that was on Tia's bucket list to go topless on the beach. :)

Tia,

  You look beautiful, bruises and all. 

Looks like the trip is a big success.  Take care and rest up!

Hugs,

 Julie

 Hi you two love birds and my favorite couple in lovers land, Colorado. I am very late and missed the party Debi, but I still want to wish you and belated Happy Birthday! Now you are as old as I am again. You Debi, oh alright both of you are special people to me. If you haven't notice, I have visited you two more times and for longer times than I have any of the other ladies I have met. (Of course the extremely affordable rent may have had something to do with it.) I love you both.
  Tia, I do not know why you can't see the changes in how you look. As Stephanie and Kendra said, I can see some obvious changes through the swelling and the bruising. Changes for the better as expected. You look quite a bit different and when the bruises and swelling fade you will see her there waiting for you too. Rest and heal well.
  Both of you enjoy the rest of your stay and return safe and sound to us when you are ready.

 Hugs,
  Laurie

Okay can one of you tech savy people show me how to whistle through the computer. Wow, Anne, you are looking great, oh yeah, Tia. Sorry, old habits! Glad you two are having fun. Wait, you went topless? If I had only known, we could have spiced up our picture on my deck in the snow. Love you two wonderful women.
