Skin. Eeek.

18 Jul

Ah Peeps. Guess what??  Back under the kuh-nee-fay. (Get it? Knife?) And here’s the best part.  My surgeon is using EFFING CADAVER SKIN. Oh My Lort, as Jana used to say.

Or as my brother, Andy, said just this evening… “It puts the lotion on its skinnnn.”  Barf.

As a tribute to my brother, I have decided to name my new cadaver skin Hannibal.  When I do something stupid, I will blame Hannibal.  For example, trip and fall?  Oh Hannibal, stop screwing with my equilibrium.  Drink too much? Hannibal, you moron, you know I don’t like tequila.

But Really.

I am pretty grossed out by this.  In the spirit of denial, the American Way, I am watching The 40-Year Old Virgin, drinking a little iced tea (no beer for me this surgery eve – that didn’t work out so well last time), and trying very, very, VERY hard not to think about the person whose skin I will incorporate tomorrow.



– Bedbugs.

– Having to hang out with that weird guy on My Strange Addiction who is “married” to a doll.  Creeper.

– Clowns.

– Being allergic to Mexican food.

– Cancer.

See ya on the flip side.  Again.

    Ohhhh Rebecca!!!! I swear girlfriend, your blog posts can make me laugh out loud and cry… all in the same message! I’m sorry that you have to use that skin… I wish they could have just taken some from your buns or somewhere instead! I think that your new skin will be angel skin…
    Kick buns tomorrow! You are so strong and such a great inspiration to all!!! ❤ ❤ ❤

        I don’t know who you are, Anonymous, but I assure you that I am not making this up. Reveal yourself, por favor.

    Or then again you could be receiving the skin of someone fabulous! Call it Bettie or Veronica. Seriously, you are in my thoughts and prayers. If you need anything..holler at your girl!
