What I Looked Like Yesterday

My surgery was on March 2 and by now 95% of the swelling is gone. This is what I looked like yesterday, showing off my much flatter tummy. It was also the first time I’ve worn sleeveless in public for more years than I can count. It was a good time, too, since that wicked heat was up our way. The arm scars are long but not obnoxious, and will fade with time.
