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! 😉
