Penny's Story

A cute little drummer living her dream.

Day 12: Penny’s Excellent Adventure

[This is part of my ongoing diary about my SRS experience in Trinidad, Colorado with Dr. Marci Bowers. See the main page here: Penny’s Excellent Adventure.]

8:51 AM

Okay, on my blog there’s a feature that lets me see the search engine terms people have used to find my blog. My absolute favorite was this morning: “pee after srs.”   lol

So, this morning I had to do, like, ~everything~: pee, poop, dilate, shower, apply ointment. Whew, I am exhausted and I just got up!


2:55 PM

So, even though I’ve moved out of the Morning After House my roomie and I are still hanging out. I brought her some flowers, and she treated me to a massage. I think I got the better end of the deal. I’ve never had a proper massage before; it was pretty damned awesome. I leaked through onto my bed pad last night, so the whole time I was on my back at the massage I was worried about leaking. even though I had just put on a new pad (I didn’t leak – thank god!). Once I got on my stomach I was in heaven.

Said goodbye to Carol and my roomie, and now Sarah and Wendy and I are going to go eat Mexican food, then we’ve got to basically pack up all our stuff tonight, as we’re off by 9:00 AM. Part of me is excited to come home, but part of me will always stay here (stop the dirty-mind; that’s not what I mean  – a piece of my heart belongs to Trinidad).


6:31 PM:

It seems like I’m already increasing my depth ever-so-slightly when I’m dilating. I’ve only done it four times, and it seems pretty easy. I’m certain it’ll get annoying and I’ll get sick of it, but so far so good. I think I’m getting boring. I feel like the interesting parts of the journey may be pretty close to over; it seems very appropriate that I’m flying home tomorrow morning. I am looking forward to my own bed and my own shower.


9:13 PM:

So, basically packed. How the hell did I buy so much clothing while I was here? My suitcase is brimming with stuff. In twelve hours we’ll be on the road to Colorado Springs Airport, and in just about 24 hours, we’ll be back in Boston. It’s amazing that for so long I thought I would be stuck with the wrong body, and now I’m going home from Colorado with my vagina. This certainly has been a dream come true and the trip of a lifetime.
