Besides, I get a tummy tuck . . .

I just did a bit of reading online about the TRAM versus the lat flaps. An added benefit of the TRAM is a tummy tuck. Don't think I need a shoulder blade tuck. And, I do like to play v-ball and tennis and the lat flap might interfere with those activities.

Can you tell? Still leaning toward the TRAM.

For pictures of a TRAM flap, you can go here - see Figures 12, 13, and 14. Not for the squeamish, though. I was a bit uncomfortable looking at it!

Cool Blog Dr.Kingston!

Thanks, Jonathan. Yours is pretty cool, too - I think someone told me you climbed mountains, but wow. The one that is called "go away" in the local language sounds pretty brutal - was it Sajama?

Thanks for visiting, though! Yeesh. I'll have to watch what I saw about students, huh? LOL

Good luck! I know it's hard making decisions but I hope it will be a great Christmas present even if it won't be quite in time for Christmas.

Hi Carver,
The good thing is that I won't need to make any decisions any time soon. I got time.

Saw your post about the frost and snow - wow! Snow already? We've had snow in the mountains, but not in the valley yet. Just lots of rain.
