under the knife

Some of you may remember my friend Megan. Two years ago she was fighting aggressive breast cancer. Today she has a clean bill of health. She is having reconstructive surgery tomorrow (Wednesday), which means she will no longer have to worry about the squishy silicone insert popping out of her bra and shirt.

This little critter will keep her company as she recovers from the surgery. Her name is Kishi (Kishi Joten is the Japanese goddess of luck and beauty, or so the Internet tells me).
