Surgery in the sun.

Mr. Nielson and I packed up the family in the car and drove
miles and miles to make it to the sun.
We found it.
It was bright and warm, and I was still in my coat.
Then, I took it off and drove down the 101 with the windows down.
Why I am here is not so glamorous.
I am here for surgery.

Lots of it.

Reconstruction of my neck to be exact.
Oh, and tissue expanders in my back to stretch my skin.
(so basically, I will be Nie Nie the hunchback for about 2 months)
The tissue expanders will stretch my back skin for my new neck.

Its amazing what can be done! I am actually honored that I get to be a part of this fantastic medical world...I'd rather not, but since I am, I might as well be happy about it...right?

Mr. Nielson is taking over the blog while I lay in the hospital for the next week.
I could use your prayers....again....and....again.

I love you all
