...aside from a terrible, deep and abiding, almost criminal, lust for the maddad.
I would have sent a card, but her doctors have told me that any contact could set her recovery back years, and honestly, I just can't afford any more security lights. Not to mention how much it cost to replace the shrubs after the last "issue". Still, it's been a good long time, and since she had to settle in the husband department, I hope she's doing well.
Angelina Jolie Reveals She Had Preventative Double Mastectomy
For those of you not in the know, maddmom had a preventative double mastectomy several years ago. Not a total teardown, but we took 'em out to the studs and re-did the floorplan. From a chopped-up four bedroom center hall colonial, to a very nice, open plan three bedroom with a luxury en suite. Same square footage, but lots more space. Didn't even have to go to the HOA. Best part is now there's pressure treated at grade, so no more termite issues... ever.
That's why she did it. It's a good thing.
