I know people don’t like asking for updates, but that they’re curious. So in case you’re curious, I wanted to update you that I am seeing the surgeon on Tuesday morning.
I was SHAMELESS and mentioned to the scheduler that I grew up with the good doctor and his wife, and that his wife and I are buddies and I made sure she was OK with her husband working on my breasts (I really did clear it with her first!). That resulted in, “hang on, let me find some room,” and, “he’ll see you Tuesday morning!”
My dad always said, “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” No matter how one feels about this expression, it is true in situations like this. My dad is beyond thrilled because my doctor’s wife is his good friend’s daughter (we truly grew up since birth together) and I’m thrilled because I DID THIS ON MY OWN without my dad butting in and calling in a favor. Nothing says, “I don’t need the family name or your assistance” like “I called in the favor myself and got it done.”
All grown up! 😉
Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do.
I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

I love that you asked your friend if she is OK with her husband seeing your breasts — ha! He must look at breasts all day long. 🙂
