I hope to post interesting, thoughtful, and kind words that I receive from friends and family members in this space. This week’s lucky winner is Bonnie H. Bonnie is a dear high school friend, who makes me laugh and smile every single time I see her and even when I just think about her. She wrote me this email on September 25, 2011:
I think about you and how you must be feeling with the upcoming surgery ALL THE TIME!! I’m here and I will be calling you to check-in. I am so proud of your decision – such a difficult decision, but I believe in my heart that I would be taking the same course if faced with the gene. Your life is so active, so full of life and love that this eliminates any possible impediment to having all that you have. Soon it will be behind you – the worry will be over forever and once your reconstructive phase begins, you’ll have the best boobs of all of us – guaranteed!!
