Glad to hear your Pre-op went well.  That was great that you could see and hug your grandchildren.  They are so special!
Your hairstyle looks great!  Keep smiling.
Wind blew in, cloud was dispersed
Rainbows appearing, the pressures were burst
Breezes a-singing, now feeling good
The moment had passed like I knew that it should

Thank you Judi!
                          I am back at the hospital this week to meet the theatre staff, and look at the theatre, recovery ward and the wards I will be staying in for 5 days. I’s a nice touch by the surgeon so patients don’t have the added anxiety of unfamiliar territory. I will also talk to the surgeon and specialist nurse about pathology results and the fine details, so there are no questions going forward.

I went to visit my grandkids again today and it was just as wonderful! They are the light in my life!

Hugs,

Allie

So I did it!  I have completed my GRS and I am spending my first night in hospital with no boy bits, just girl bits! There has been no pain, and the bowel prep was by far the worst part! I am stuck in bed for 2 days before I can walk. I wasn’t too sure how this might affect me, but as the haze cleared post op, a distinct feeling of contentment enveloped me!

Hugs,

Allie

Congratulations and wishing you much happiness.

Chrissy
Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

Thank you Kim and Emma! I don’t feel unwell at all, and no pain at all! I had a big adventure today, I got out of bed! Just stood next to the bed for 5 minutes, but it was so good after 50 hours on my back! The dressings come off tomorrow, and I guess it could get emotional. It’s something I’ve waited over 60 years to see!

Hugs,

Allie

Thank you Susan and Randy! It’s almost surreal, a lifetime dream realised! But it’s just one more step towards a normal life!

Hugs,

Wonderful news Allie!!  My doctor wouldn't let me out of bed for a few days too.  I survived.  Congratulations.  I know you are over the moon!  Cheers!

Thank you Judi!

I had the bandages removed yesterday and saw my new bits! I was amazed how little bruising and blood there was, just swellng! I didn’t expect it would ave such a powerful effect on me, and I broke down sobbing for the 60+ years this was denied me. The nurses were wonderful and held my hand until I composed myself. Now I just need to go home!

Hugs,

Alle
