Six months ago I had a tracheal resection surgery, to remove a growth in my trachea. It was a difficult surgery with a hard recovery, and so I've had to go in for follow up visits to monitor the healing. Wednesday was my 6-month post-op check-up, and I could tell from how I've been feeling that I have healed very well. The doctor confirmed it with a scope down my throat, showing 100% healing. He said I don't have to come back again! I brought with me a cake to thank the surgeon for his excellent work.
This was a 6-inch, 3-layer vanilla bean cake with vanilla bean whipped American buttercream, topped with hand sculpted sugar paste flowers.
I really am lucky to have a surgeon close by who can do the surgery I had to have. Most people who get this have to fly out of state to have it done! I was also greatly blessed by my family and friends who gave me so much care and support during my recovery! I wish I could bake cakes for everyone!
