Whats in a name

So there is a story behind the name of this blog. It started at my surgeon's office, Dr. Cody Gunn. As you can imagine, the first thing a woman thinks of when you are meeting with the "surgeon" and you've been diagnosed with breast cancer, is whether or not we are going to lose our most precious assets. So the first lucid question I could think to ask is:

"Doc, give it to me straight. Are you going to have to hack off my boobs?" to which he replied, after some deliberation,

"Boob is a weekend word. During the week we call them breasts."
So I thought "Boob Is A Weekend Word" was a fitting title of this cancer story.

The easiest tattoo you’ll ever get….

August 20th, 2014

It’s been nearly 3.5 years since I had my mastectomy, and I was finally able to take the very last step in reconstruction. There aren’t many talented medical tattoo artists that i’ve been able to locate online. My plastic surgeon recommended one, but she didn’t have a web site or anything I could research online, […]
