I want to thank everyone for the prayers. The surgery was Thursday and I came home Friday. All went well and was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I had my first radiation treatments today and have eight more to go. My fiancee's support has made me love him every more. He changes the bandages everyday and goes to all of my appointments with me. Of course the surgery has hampered my sewing a bit. Because the radiation treatment requires a balloon and a catheter be inserted in my breast, my right breast is much larger than normal. No way can I think of fitting a pattern for myself so what's a girl to do?? I used my TNT to make another jacket.
I did use five buttons as the pattern called for but I added the pocket flaps and the little "belt thing" in the back. It's going to look perfect with the brown slacks I made with the welt pockets. It may seem that I just sew to be sewing but I do so with a purpose. I make things to match other things that are already in my closet.
Currently I working on a dress-McCalls 5752 (I think). It's a knit dress and my sweetie picked out the fabric. I can't sew as much as I did before the surgery but I still try to squeeze in a few minutes here and there. The dress is cut and I've sewn the bodice. I'd like to finish it by the weekend. It's been so long since I make a dress it's actually exciting seeing it come together. Luckily I did my pattern alterations before surgery! Again, thanks for the prayers and don't stop. I've still got a ways to go!
