I love finding a bargain in a charity shop. My friends say I am a typical Yorkshire woman when it comes to sniffing out a deal. Today I bought a Litho image of a native American Indian. I paid £5 for it and is worth £200 or more. I have hung it up in my hallway because I love it. The image is called Proud American and one of a series printed in 1976 by Popo & Ruby Lee.
I also received a phone call from the Big C hospital. They have a cancelation and want me to come in on Friday for nipple reconstruction to begin.
Letter from Big C hospital
Dear Dr S,
Re : Ms Sarah Mendoza – DOB **/**/**** NHS Number: *** *** ***

I reviewed this pleasant lady in clinic today. She has had a left mastectomy and LD implant reconstruction as an immediate reconstruction in November 2009. Postop, she had a capsulotomy and adjustment of her high riding implant February 2011.
On examination today, she finds that the appearance of the left breast has significantly improved after operation. It is still though slightly high riding compared to the right breast. She decided that she is not keen to have any further symmetrisation procedures, but she is really keen to proceed with a left NAC reconstruction. She understands that the position of the left nipple areolar complex depends on the contour and shape of the left breast and that it could look asymmetrical comparing to the right NAC should she decide to have further symmetrisation procedure after her left nipple areolar complex construction. I have put her name on the waiting list for left NAC reconstruction today and I have arranged for her to see Mr H in clinic in six weeks’ time to discuss things further. We will keep you informed of her progress.
Finally things are moving forward and I only have to get the all clear from my oncologist appointment next.
