thankyou I can’t express enough the appreciation I have for everyone out there. (yes, it’s YOU I’m talking about!) The prayers, thoughts and support has been incredible. It meant a lot. So I just wanted to take some time to say thanks for letting me share and thanks for all the incredible feedback Wifey and I have received over the last month. I also just wanted to give everyone an update of what happened and where we are at now (well, wifey is much faster at updates than I am so she’s already done a few posts so this is old news if you’ve been reading her blog).

We went in for surgery last Wednesday (5/6/2009) for thyroid cancer. We were ready for cancer because that’s what all the tests and the biopsy said. Her thyroid was enlarged (you could see it visibly on her throat) and had a huge mass on it. Our surgeon (man, what a surgeon! I thought her handshake was going to crush my hand but I guess strong hands are a great thing for a surgeon to have!) was still skeptical. She really didn’t want to take the whole thyroid unless absolutely necessary. She was prepared to take it all if she had to, but if there was any chance that it wasn’t cancerous she only wanted to take the half with the mass.

As she began the surgery, she drew her lines for the incision as if she was going to have to take both but she started with just the bad half. After removing it, she had them do a quick test to see if the result came back cancerous. Her plan was if it preliminary (but not conclusive) test results were questionable or a no, she would stop the surgery at that point. However if it was a yes she would continue.

flowers She got a no so we only lost half a thyroid. That was great news but still a little nerve wracking because those were just initial tests and not necessarily 100% accurate. So we were excited but still not ready to celebrate until we had the official all clear.

We then had to wait a day while they did the 100% all conclusive test and it also came back negative. Oh frabjous day callooh, callay! Wifey DOES NOT HAVE CANCER! :)

Pretty dang good new! So now we’re only dealing with one of those two things I mentioned last post. We’re still battling with depression, but we can totally do this. Wifey’s chemicals are pretty out of whack right now (with losing half a thyroid and all), but we’re hopeful they’ll stabilize soon and then we can see even more progress in this struggle with depression.

But no cancer :)

Thanks once again to everyone for…well everything! I love you all :)
