Update on my mom...


As most of you know my mom was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer a couple of weeks ago. She was told that it is only on one side of the thyroid and in Stage 1. They usually don't catch it this early, but with all the stuff she's had done with her neck (bulging disc) they caught it :) She had an apt. yesterday with the surgeon and he said they are going to take the whole thing and then do a round of radiation. Her procedure will be on Oct. 9th. She really likes her surgeon and feels so good about his decision to just take the entire thyroid out. Please keep her in your prayers and I'll update any new news!

I stole this picture off Tabby's blog :) Thanks for taking it, I don't have many recent ones of just the two of them!!

I'm glad you posted this. I've been wanting to know what the doctor had said. I called your mom Tuesday evening, and left a message on the recorder, but no one has called me back. I'm glad to hear they will take the whole tyroid. Tell your mom, I will call her later. Love ya, Aunt Sue-Sue

I hate that I had to find out about this on blogger...i'm just now seeing this. our family has really got to work on our communication skills. At least when it comes to important information. I'm so glad they've caught it early. Please keep me informed on her treatments/progress. Love you.

Your mom is awesome! It makes me sad to hear this about her. I am glad that the docs can fix it since they caught it so early.
