I turned another year older yesterday. But, I’m ok with that. I’m PROUD of that. The older, the better! This week also marks 6 months out from my surgery. One of the reasons I decided to have my preventive double mastectomy was so I could grow old. Something my mom didn’t get to do, and a privilege many take for granted. Last year taught me a lot about myself. I was presented with some tough choices. I’m very proud of the decisions I made, all I’ve endured and overcome, both physically and mentally, and who I’ve become in the process. Can’t wait to see what the next 37 years will bring. Thank you to everyone who reached out yesterday. I’m a very lucky girl. ☺️#birthday #37yearsyoung #previvor #doublemastectomywithreconstruction #preventionisbetterthancure #geneticmutation #atmmutation

《The beautiful things about set backs is they introduce us to our strenghts》
.
.
9 weeks post exchange surgery and able to see back gains and start to feel like the sport tank i used to be.
To all fellow breasties athletes who have been asking me about how is the gym after surgery, and if the set back is really bad, id say that muscle memory is real.
You can hit the gym again; but really need to listen to your body and some changes might have to be considered (some of us bigger than others for sure ) but it is not the end, you'll smash it again.
Everyone at their own pace, its not a race.
Be aware of the signs your body give you and be aware of its limits♥️
Let me add to this that even if you never been to the gym and you want to after surgeries, go for it.
Although everyone's fitness, diagnosis, possibilities are different. Always listen carefully to your body!
Dont push it if you feel it is not going alright!
Baby steps. Slow, steady and focused. Always ♥️
.

I did noticed with push ups and talked about with so many of you, is that it is a very challenging exercise with foobs.
I suggest to build it up sitting on a chest press machine😊
That way you can build strength back in your chest activating the same muscle with a similar movement but without directly having to throw your body weight on it all at once (i did try , foobs got upset)😅 it works with me, i do start with no weight at all but its getting stronger.
What works for me might not work for everyone but it might be useful to some 😋

A study offering the parents of newborns a scan of thousands of the baby's genes raises a big question: Do you want this kind of information on disease risk in your child's permanent record?

#selflovesunday I’ve been working a lot the past few weeks and when I haven’t been working I’ve been with the kids, enjoying them! I’ve also had lots on my mind and haven’t been doing my daily journaling. .
.
Because I’ve been so busy and my mind has been preoccupied...It’s been a few Sundays since I’ve taken some ME time and pampered myself. I have lots of traveling coming up and I know that if I want to be present during these trips I need to take some time for myself and get centered. .

Do ya feel me? ❤️

Last week of radiation - actually only 3 sessions left!!!! 🙌🏼 Home stretch, baby! Can’t wait to ring the hell outta that bell on Wednesday!!!! 🔔 These last 6 weeks have actually gone pretty fast. I have such an awesome treatment team that I see bright & early every morning & I think I’m kinda gonna miss seeing them a little. We’ve had some good laughs along the way & they’ve made this scary, super monotonous experience 1000% better. Six weeks of spending every single morning together, so we’re tight now! 👨‍👩‍👧‍👧

This clematis at the Penelope and Lloyd homestead is a changeling. At some point in it's life, it began to bloom early in the season with pink and white striped flowers and again later with these purple flowers pictured. Beautiful genetic mutations: one of the fun surprises of perennial gardening. #connecticutgardener #canaanct #litchfieldhills #perennialgarden #clematis #floweringvine #globethistle #purpleflowers #homestead #geneticmutation #beautifulfreak

Man, watching this video is pretty crazy! What a reminder to be grateful! This is the same little girl who took a year and a half to hold her head up unassisted. This is the same little girl who took almost 3 years to walk. This is the same little girl who we were scared to take in public because Her immune system was nonexistent. It’s amazing how glorious life is when celebrate our imperfections instead of mask them... notice her saying “I did it” at the end... It’s pretty awesome #MommyCamp .

Last night I invited 200 mothers of kids with special needs to my house. I opened the doors to women I don’t know but so very much want to. As a Mum to a child who has not only special needs but also doesn’t fit into the typical lifestyle, life can be pretty isolating. It’s up to me to build the life that I want and I want to surround myself with women who are like minded and want to join.

Each month we get together, it’s always different women who come but our tribe is building.
We trade not only our tips but how we are feeling. Our stories aren’t sad, they are different and real. 💗💗💗

Tell me something about you!👇🏻

This is so true for me in the last year or so with my mental health and physical problems post surgery.
With learning more about my gene mutation and how all my problems could get much worse in time. I needed to start making changes. I started off really slow avoiding what I can within my financial means. Once my move is final I know that I can get more strict about my food and have more time for the gym.

“When I finally got to hold my son Sebastian for the first time, I was in awe. I had done it. I had created life. A part of me was now alive inside this tiny, little human.

I don’t think I was much aware of the tears that poured down my face as I gazed at that beautiful little bundle. He immediately filled our lives with love and happiness, bursting with the joy of being a new parent. Never did we imagine just how much fear and challenge would come with that joy.

Sebastian was 3 years old when he was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1).” Click the link in our bio to read more of Melanie’s story! ❤️

I hope wherever my gallbladder is, it's helping scientists learn more about the body! I do miss the little guy. His eviction had good and bad consequences. This cartoon always makes me giggle now after my surgery.

When your #lowprotein diet gets adjusted and you can have a little more protein... naturally you go for a slice of pizza! 🍕🍕🍕 BUT, just ONE slice b/c that’s still almost too much protein for a day. Sacrificing protein for brain function is totally worth it, but still sucks when Jack cries for something his sister has that he can’t have. 🧠⬆️🍕 #lowproproblems #lowproteindiet #tripletherapyforpde #tripletherapy #lysinerestricteddiet #tryptophanrestricteddiet #lowproteinlifestyle #pde #pyridoxinedependentepilepsy #metabolicdisorder #genetictesting #geneticmutation #geneticdisorder #genetictestingsaveslives #metabolicmamas #jackjacklove #specialagentjacktrotter #advocatelikeamother
