Well if all the stars are aligned, it seems as if I will be having my surgery in January. There is one private matter which might hold up things in terms of affording the surgery by then, but hopefully everything works out soon and I am able to set a date. Also, I should have the money to be able to afford to get off the streets and into an apartment by the time I get back from the surgery (if not sooner).
This past weekend I went down to Tampa Bay, Florida to visit family, but mainly to get consults for the upcoming surgery. My parents want me to do it down there near them, so that I can spend my recovery time at their place, instead of in San Francisco. It makes sense, and the Doctor said the follow up appointments would all take place within the following 2 weeks of the surgery.
I am really looking forward to finally reaching my goal and being able to feel comfortable in my own skin. Thanks for everyone who has donated and the well wishers along the way. It’s been a long road, but the light is certainly at the end of the tunnel.
BTW I plan on writing a year end post soon, specifically describing my progress on reaching my goals of having an ACTUAL real friend in San Francisco, and boyfriend (or hell even a 2nd date). Stay tuned…
