Life deals the hardest blows some times... I'll sorry if I have not been my self for the past few months. My wife Kelly has been going thru some tough medical issues the past three years, but the last ten months have been pretty grueling. In January she found a mass in her breast, so she took action. Her docters found several other masses, as a result she under went a battery of tests for the last ten months. It was just last week after a RMI guided core biopsy, she was given the all clear, for her breast issues. Back in February, she was under going treatment for a rotator cup injury. The treatment was from a chiropractor, using ultrasonics equipment, to remove scar tissue. She has complained about soreness, in the shoulder, and neck. While checking her neck alignment, the Dr. found a bump on her Thyroid. Having one of his therapists, just go threw this same thing, he told her to see her regular Dr. immediately. Kelly went to our family Dr. for a exam, the Dr. said everything appeared normal, even thyroid, and blood tests. But since the other Dr. found some thing, he signed off for an Ultra sound. A few weeks later they did the ultra sound test, and had to wait for the results to come back. The test results came back, it was a nodule of 2mm in size (Tiny) Kelly was referred to a thyroid specialist, for more testing. Two more Ultra sound tests ensued, with a battery of Zithromax, to try and shrink the nodule. the nodule had grown to 5mm in size, still tiny in size, but concern was growing. About a month ago she under went a needle biopsy of the Thyroid, and we waited again for results. The results were not encouraging, they did not know what it was, but it was not normal. The Thyroid Dr. refer us to a Surgeon, for the procedure. After consultation with the surgeon, she was some what comfortable, learning only half of the thyroid need be removed, and still carry on a normal life. We weighed her options, and set up her short temp dis ability thru her employer. Yesterday we were in hi spirits, thinking she may get to go home, in one day, after the procedure. We all gathered by to wish her well, just about the time she left pre op. The procedure was to be an hour and twenty minutes, she was in for three hours before learning, that the whole thyroid would need to be removed. We all sat in shock, this was the news we did not want to hear, this ment the nodule was Cancer. She was rolled out of the OR after four hours, and into recovery. We talked to the Dr, and he explained the procedure, when went except for the frozen byopsy results of the Nodule. They had two Pathologists on staff yesterday, they both agreed, the nodule was 120% and no less Papillary Cancer. He told us she was still sleepy and groggy, but had spoken to her, checking her vocal cords and nerves after the surgery. We all agreed this was for the best, and it went as good as it could go. We waited for Kelly to be assigned a room, before getting to see her. We went to Kelly's room to find her joking with the nurses setting up the room, and checking her vitals. I sat there in amazement,as she wanted to talk her head off, running threw the list of people I needed to call after the procedure. We talked about what happened, during the operation, she was bummed about her diet, she would need to the following weeks. We sat and talked till 11 pm, before leaving for night. I get a wake up call fro Kelly, she said she did not sleep well, maybe an hour, and reminded me to bring her cell phone charger to the Hospital room. So here I sit and type, thanking GOD for Kelly's recovery from this mess, Kelly turning 40, and the year 2008 should not have happened at the same time her words) I'm of the Hospital, she will be released Saturday we are hoping. Keep her in your prayers.
