I will be going in for surgery to remove my thyroid on Tuesday, February 25th. Myself and the doctors wanted to remove the cancer as soon as possible, so soon after I delivered Olivia we scheduled the thyroidectomy.
The pre-op appointment was this past Wednesday and I was told that the cancer had advanced to stage 2; the tumor has grown in size and they suspect it has spread to some surrounding lymph nodes.
This doesn't change the prognosis or treatment plan. The likelihood of beating this is still near 98% and I will receive the anticipated radioactive iodine treatment in the near future.
The specific prayers we need:
*The surgery goes flawlessly, without complications.
*The biopsied lymph nodes come back negatived for cancer.
* That recovery is quick and easy.
*For me to have peace and confidence in God. For me to feel his closeness and protection.
Thank you for continuing to think of us and love us through it all.
