The Easter egg: my surgeons signature hidden in the veins. I am grateful for the dozens of hours he has put into my body, as well as for his compassion and fight. I love him for affirming me as a nonbinary person and insisting insurance pay when they were being awful. I love him for customizing my surgery for me. I will show him when I come in for my next stage of surgery. Looking forward to that moment. (Yes, I did obtain consent… But he doesn’t know I did it for sure yet:)
